Strategy[edit | edit source]

  • The Hand Cannon can be a practical choice for medium and long range assaults, but it is difficult to use on close-range fights, as it has low fire rate and accuracy, unless one is lucky and lands their shots on the target.
  • Should be considered in the player's arsenal as a subtitute of a sniper rifle in case they do not have one.
