A flute is a short blunt melee weapon.

Usage

Weapon

The flute can attack up to 2 enemies at a time dealing a maximum of 0.2 damage to enemies (unless a critical hit) from up to 0.9 tiles away at an attack speed of 1.3.

Condition

The flute has a maximum condition of 1. Its rate of degradation is influenced by the short blunt and maintenance skills. The chance of losing durability can be simplified to the following formula: 1 in (1 + maintenanceMod × 2). Where "maintenanceMod" is calculated using the short blunt and maintenance skills.
Below is an example of the chance of losing durability at varying levels of the maintenance and short blunt skills.

For how this is calculated, see: Condition
Maintenance level Short blunt level Condition lower chance Average condition
0 0 1/1 (100%) 1
0 4 1/3 (33%) 3
0 8 1/5 (20%) 5
4 0 1/5 (20%) 5
8 0 1/9 (11%) 9
4 4 1/7 (14%) 7
4 8 1/9 (11%) 9
8 8 1/13 (8%) 13
10 10 1/15 (7%) 15

Distribution

The loot distributions can be found in the table(s) below.

Flute distribution Show / Hide
Effective chance calculations are based off of default loot settings, and median zombie density. The higher the density of zombies in an area, the higher the effective chance of an item spawning. Chance is also influenced by the lucky and unlucky traits.
