The Pistol can be found in the hands of combat-unready enemies and enemies that have no time to reload their primary weapons. It can also be found in the hands of Nanosuit-equipped US soldiers and marines and as a side-arm for pilots, such as Sean O'Neill.
The Pistol is a well-balanced side-arm and is, by-far the most powerful pistol in the game; it has a large magazine for a handgun, and is particularly accurate when aiming down the sights. The player should be aware of their ammunition however, as the pistol still has a relatively small magazine compared to other weapons.
The Pistol also has a burst fire mode, where each trigger pull results in the gun firing two bullets. This can be particularly effective in close quarters combat or when dual wielding pistols.
Dual-wielding pistols allows the player to trade accuracy for power, and effectively doubling the rate of fire and magazine size. The player cannot use iron sights while dual-wielding, though Strength mode allows the pistols to be fired more accurately. The player may also attach a laser sight and change the aiming crosshair to a dot for more accuracy. If the player does not want to dual-wield, the player may press the drop weapon button (default J) to drop a pistol. It is desirable if the player wants to be stealthy and use the ironsights for maximum accuracy.
The silencer is a useful attachment for the pistol, allowing the player to call upon an accurate silenced weapon without having to modify their primary weapon.
