Strategy[edit | edit source]

  • The Hand Cannon can be a good choice for medium to long range fights, but it is difficult to use in close-range fights, as it has low fire rate and accuracy, unless one is lucky and lands their shots on the target.
  • The Hand Cannon can be considered as a substitute to a sniper rifle in case the player does not have one.
