Handgun Weapon Overview
Close Range Weapons
Handguns are close range weapons that can be used to finish off enemies. You can switch out to your handgun instead of reloading your primary weapon since it is faster. These are great weapons to have for longer one-on-one encounters!
Small Magazine Size
Handguns tend to have a smaller magazine size. Make sure to reload them as soon as you finish a firefight in order to keep your trusty sidearm ready for any situation!
Use To Finish Off Enemies
Handguns possess an accurate first shot, making them useful for finishing off enemies with very low health! Instead of reloading your primary weapon, switch out to your handgun to finish off enemies before they can run.
Use Mobility to Become a Hard Target
Since Handguns have no movement penalties, you will be able to move around faster! Swap out to your handgun in heated fights and move around to become a harder target for enemies!
