Description and strategy
Some of the count's henchmen are armed with antique firearms. These guys are fairly uncommon, but you will bump into them occasionally throughout the castle. Just like you, they'll need to spend a couple seconds reloading their weapon after every shot. They also have below average accuracy, although they can still hit you. Their attack is also pretty damaging if it manages to hit you.
Not particularly mobile, these guys mostly stand in one place and shoot at you (although they can occasionally follow you if you run into another room). Melee attacks won't always stun them, and since they do a decent bit of damage you really should finish them off quickly with your own flintlock pistol. Your best strategy is to duck behind cover when you first spot them, wait for them to take a shot, then come back out and pop em' while they're still reloading. They drop their flintlock pistol as well as some flintlock ammo when killed, which can be useful.
Gypsies with Flintlock Pistols and Gypsies with Muskets are the only enemies in the game who drop an item upon being killed (besides bosses, who drop keys).
