Strategy[edit | edit source]

The Pistol is classified as an early game weapon, it however can prove useful in the hands of the right players in the late game

However, since it also has a low magazine capacity and a shorter range, it's not as effective against automatic weapons in long to mid-long range combat.

It's suitable as an emergency weapon in the early game. It can also carry it's niche into the late game as an accurate, high damage, close range option under the right circumstances.
