Handgun Weapon Overview
Close Range Weapons
Handguns are close ranged weapons that can be used to finish off enemies if you ever run out of bullets on your primary weapon. Due to how quick you can whip out a pistol, these are great weapons 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 have an accurate first shot, making them useful for finishing off enemies with very low health! Instead of reloading your primary switch out to your handgun to deal with them before they run away!
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!
