Strategy[edit | edit source]

  • Dual Pistols are considered a major step-up over the Pistol, as a single shot on the body is able to take almost half of a target's health, with two headshots able to take out all the shield and half the health of an enemy (when both are full).
  • Dual Pistols should be considered as 2-round burst weapons, so it is advisable to take some time to aim at the target as one would do with the Burst Assault Rifle.

  • The Dual Pistols are based on the FNX-45 tactical pistol.
