Based on the real-life desert eagle, the handcannon appropriately does the most damage of any pistols in the game, and has the highest level of penetration, capable of hitting 4 targets in a single shot.

Owing to its reasonable magazine size and reload time, it makes both an effective side arm and a backup weapon, being capable of high bursts of damage as well as accurate sniping. The dual variant makes it suitable as a crowd control weapon, although its limited ammunition reserve limits its use as this.

It was the first non-shotgun weapon to feature multiple target penetration; the MK23 and 44 Magnum were later added with the same capability.

Strategy

  • Use for sniping over any range; it is both accurate and powerful.
