Type Hand Cannon
Used by Gunner
Slot Secondary

Availability Default
A custom revolver firing rounds so large it only holds 4 shots. More or less nothing can stand before a direct hit from one of these 26mm monstrosities.
~ Item Description


The "Bulldog" Heavy Revolver is the Gunner's default sidearm. It is a revolver handgun with a huge foregrip that never gets used. Its 26mm bullets are so huge that only four can be held in the cylinder at once; fortunately, cylinders are discarded and new ones inserted as opposed to requiring players to load each cartridge individually.

The Revolver deals high damages and has a high stun chance.

An updated casing profile lets you squeeze 2 more rounds into the cylinder and take a few more rounds with you, but all that filling and drilling has compromised the accuracy of the weapon and it takes longer to reload.

Heavy tweaking has made it possible to use modified autocannon rounds in the revolver! The damage is crazy but so is the recoil and you can't carry as many rounds. Also, only 3 rounds fit in the gun and reload time is a bit slower but base accuracy is improved.

Smaller, bouncy bullets ricochet off hard surfaces, hitting nearby enemies like magic! Overall, the damage of the weapon is reduced, but you can carry a few more rounds due to their compact size.
