Introduction to Pistols Edit

In Dead Frontier 2, pistols is the first gun a player can get their hands on together with the 2x4. Pistols usually serve as a good DPS gun (with the exception of revolvers). Pistols can also serve as primary weapons if the player chooses it.

Pistols are usually grouped into two categories: revolvers and semi-automatics.

Semi-automatics are characterized by having a moderately sized magazine, ranging from 8 to 15, faster firing speed of 1.33 per second and reload speed of 2.5 seconds, but lower body and headshot damage.

Revolvers are characterized by having a small sized clip of 6, slower firing speed of 1 per second and reload speed of 3.75 seconds, but a higher body and headshot damage. In other words, more bang for your buck.

Advantages and Disadvantages Edit

Advantages

  • You can carry more ammo (100 per box compared to rifles having 60 per box).
  • Semi-automatics have a faster firing and reload speed than the revolvers.
  • Semi-automatics can deliver a constant DPS for an extended period of time (15 per magazine).
  • Revolvers have good body and headshot damage.

Disadvantages

  • Pistols have low body and headshot damage.
  • Revolvers have a long reload time (can be fixed with "Reloading").

What is known, however, is that this revolver is a welcome addition to any survivor's arsenal.
