High Damage

The Hand Cannon is able to deal at least 75 damage per shot, easily taking away more than half of an enemy's health or shield in one shot.

Slow Fire Rate

What makes the Hand Cannon risky to use is its slow fire rate. At almost a full second before every shot, this gives enemies an opening to shoot you down.

Easily Land Shots

The first shot out of the Hand Cannon will always be accurate up to a certain range. It also is a hit scan, making it easier to connect shots.

Aim for Headshots

Utilize the Hand Cannon's first shot accuracy to connect headshots. A successful headshot will deal at least 150 damage, enough to immediately knock down enemies.

Great in Weapon Combos

The Hand Cannon works well in combo with other weapons. Use it as an opener & switch to another weapon to finish off enemies or use it to finish off escaping enemies.

Win Peeking Matches

The Hand Cannon works well in peeking battles. Peek between shots and the high damage will bring down the enemy in 1-2 shots.
