The flintlock supports his allies with magickally charged cannon actions.


Flintlock is a job in Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift usable by moogles.


Like the Fusilier, they can attack enemies from far away. Flintlocks use magick cannons which have a wide range, and are primarily used for support abilities, such as Cure Cannon, which heals the unit as well as removes any status effects. However, they are also capable of offensive abilities, such as Ether Boost.

Unlike the similar Cannoneer job, Flintlocks have to use their Prime ability before they can use their other abilities, slowing them down and making them vulnerable to units that can dispel their Prime before they get a chance to use it, particularly Werewolves. Though underused compared to the Cannoneer and slightly hard to use effectively due to the need to use Prime before other Ballistics abilities, Flintlocks can bestow buffs like Protect, Shell, and Regen and can even teleport a target to a random tile, making up for their Priming delay.

Compared to Cannoneers, Flintlocks are better in offense and resilience rather than vitality, but lack efficient offensive A-Abilities. One may prefer to have a Flintlock to equip Fairy Shoes and move to a high place that's inaccessible for melee attackers. Equipping Flintlocks with Gunmanship A-Ability may help turn the tide of battle effectively.

Since Flintlocks are highly resilient, they are almost invulnerable if equipped with Block Arrows or Blur against rowdy debuff affectors. They are still susceptible to magickal attacks.



FLINTLOCKS use these skills to imbue shells with the power of their magicks.
