Handcannon - How To Get?
There Are Two Ways To Obtain It
- Completing a new game (not with New Game Plus) on Professional mode without using Bonus Weapons
- Obtain an S rank or higher in all stages of The Mercenaries (use any character)
It is recommended to play The Mercenaries if you want the Handcannon right away, as it is by far less difficult to obtain it in The Mercenaries. It does not take much time to obtain it unless you are a beginner, since you only need to get an S rank in the three stages of The Mercenaries.
