History
Introduced Patch 1.6
Vaulted Patch 5.40

Revolver is a pistol in Battle Royale. It is available in Common, Uncommon, and Rare variants. It uses Medium Bullets.

The Revolver was Vaulted in Patch 5.40, making it therefore currently only available in Playground and Creative modes. The Revolver was relatively uncommon in use, compared to other weapons. It required good aim to use efficiently, as it had a high damage output, but a slow rate of fire. As of Season 8, the Hand Cannon and the Scoped Revolver are the only pistols in Battle Royale resembling the Revolver, as they both have a high damage output and a slow rate of fire.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

  • The Revolver is slow to fire continuously and takes a couple of seconds to reload, so it is best used for medium-range attacks or as a substitute to a sniper rifle when the player doesn't have one.
  • A little known fact about the Revolver is that headshots do over 100 damage at close ranges, allowing for insta-kills early game.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Revolver seems to be inspired by the Colt Model 1889 with custom engravings on it.
  • The Revolver was modified and re-introduced as the Six Shooter.
  • The Six Shooter has now also been vaulted, and is being replaced by a closer variant to the original Revolver called the Scoped Revolver.
  • The weapon is slightly faster than the Hand Cannon with 0.9 fire rate beating 0.8 fire rate.
  • The Revolver used to use Light Bullets before being changed to Medium Bullets.
