Disambig.png This article is about the weapon type. For the combat skill, see Pistols.

Pistols are a medium to short-range weapon. They are easy to aim and fire and have low recoil, so players can shoot on the move. They are lightweight and quick to reload.

Notes[edit | edit source]

Weapons stats can be affected by a number of factors. Obvious factors include:

Changes to a specific weapon, either through development with augmentations or through weapon mods, are reflected in the inventory entry for that specific item. They don’t appear on the blueprints.

Other explicit but perhaps less obvious factors include:

  • Profiles
  • Skill points invested in Combat Skills (other than the weapon skills) increase the bonuses from weapon skills
  • Equipped armor
  • Passive buffs from melee weapon augmentations are always active even if the melee weapon isn't in use

These effects are reflected in the blueprint stats without explicit notation.

The single-player stats shown on this page are baseline: Initiative I armor, no skill points assigned, no profile active.

Despite being classified as Rare, the single-player Pathfinder Ranger only has 2 augmentation slots.

Equipped items have a green check mark Equipped Item Icon.png.

Accuracy is a different weapon property than stability. The accuracy of a weapon will change the size of the aiming reticle. Stability reduces the kickback and rise of the weapon during firing.

There is a chance that a pistol purchased, crafted, found, or recovered by a Strike team Item Loot Box will drop a random augmentation on deconstruction. (See Augmentation Drops for odds of recovery). Researchable augmentations not already known will not be recovered. This drop will not be shown on the deconstruct screen and you will have to compare your inventory before/after to determine if an augmentation was dropped.

The number of pistol kills can be tracked on the Accomplishments tab in the statistics menu.

The multiplayer stats shown are accurate as of Multiplayer Update - November 7, 2018.

1 The Remnant Equalizer doesn't require reloading; the real firing limitation comes from overheating.

2 The Charger S, M-3 Predator S, and Silhesh are multiplayer only weapons and can't be crafted.
