Pistols are short to medium range weapons with low to moderate damage and a small amount of recoil. Reload speeds tend to be quick while fire rate is either quick (for Pistols) or slow (for Revolvers and Hand Cannons), with weapons using anywhere from Light to Heavy Bullets.

Notes

  • Go for headshots whenever possible, especially using the crouch plus aim down sights technique. This is especially important with pistols that have a long delay between shots.

Trivia

  • The Pistol appears to resemble a Colt M1911; however, the M1911 could only carry 7 bullets in one cartridge, whereas the Pistol carries 16.
    • The Suppressed Pistol resembles the FN FNP 45 with a holographic sight (like the Heavy Shotgun) and a suppressor.
    • Likewise, the Hand Cannon is distinctly based off of the Desert Eagle (or Deagle), a handgun that is infamous for its incredible power (hence the name). Because of this, many players will call the Hand Cannon by its real-life name.
    • The Revolver is fictional, but appears to be based off of the Colt Single Action Army. The Six Shooter also seems to be inspired by the Colt Army, but with an elongated barrel and more detail.
    • The Scoped Revolver is very recognizably inspired by the Colt Python, namely the "Elite" variant.
  • The Suppressed Pistol and Hand Cannon can be considered more powerful versions of the Pistol and Revolver, respectively.
  • When the player takes out or reloads the Six Shooter, the character spins the gun with their pointer finger. This trick is commonly associated with cowboys due to western movies, so it makes sense, given that it was released in Season 6 and was prominent in promotional material and the Wild West LTM.
