- The Pirate Flintlock, alongside the naval mission "Sinking a Secret" that unlocks it, was initially an exclusive bonus for pre-ordering Assassin's Creed III from Walmart. It eventually became available, along with all other pre-order bonuses, through downloadable content The Hidden Secrets Pack.
- In the purchase menu of general stores, a Royal Navy Sea Service Flintlock with the ramrod is erroneously used as the depiction of the Pirate Flintlock.
- In Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, the Pirate Blunderbusses initially shared the same model as the Pirate Flintlock in promotional media, where they were depicted as the pistols of choice for the main protagonist Edward Kenway. In the released game, the Pirate Blunderbusses are instead based on a different model of naval blunderbuss flintlock pistol.
- In spite of being described as a blunderbuss, the Pirate Flintlock lacks the later gameplay mechanics of blunderbusses because blunderbusses as a distinct gameplay class of weapons had not yet been introduced to the series at the time of Assassin's Creed III.
