Shorter range pistols such as the Garreth Custom and the Florenz' Flurry are excellent in close combat with bigger magazines and rapid three-round bursts. Best used for people that want to fire lots of bullets but are ammo-conservative. Friendly tip: Click rapidly when firing this pistol to imitate a fully automatic pistol.
Fully automatic pistol. This pistol is great for self-controlled burst fires, or when a commando is about to stab you, letting loose all the ammo inside, NOT recommended for mid-range or long-range firefights as the bullet spread goes everywhere after a certain distance. Best used as a close-range self-defence weapon or for sneaky (not really) assassinations.
The medium range pistols, Ludwig's Loaded and Carl's Cold Comfort, are the least encountered of all pistols because, although they aren't particularly weak, most people prefer either short or long range variants.
These weapons are unique because they have extremely superfluous accuracy (near 100% accurate), deals extreme damage when lands on target, but depends on the range of the target (being far away from the target is the best range). Consequently the pistols have only 1 bullet as ammo, and has a lengthy reloading time. However, these are only pistols in-game that every class can use so be it Commando, Soldier, or Gunner, take your pick!
These pistols are currently the only ones who can deal extra damage when getting a headshot.
The long range pistols are great for Soldiers and Commandos who don't use Sniper Rifles as a protection against snipers because they are accurate at the ranges up to 200 metres, perform better than the hefty sniper rifle at medium ranges, and also allow you to aim and maneuvre better with the pistol. Compared to the sniper rifle, the pistol has crosshairs and does not blind you from your surroundings when firing.
The Super Harry's Hand Cannon may be a reference, both in name and design, to Harry Callahan from the 'Dirty Harry' film series, in which the main character is known for wielding a large .44 magnum revolver .
