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 based off a .357 Magnum Revolver with some custom engravings on it.
  • This new Revolver is based off the Mateba Model 6 Unica.
  • 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. That has also been vaulted.
  • The 9.10 and 9.20 update increased the fire rate to 1.6 and decreased reload time to (2.2/2.1/2.0 respectively). This could hint the return of the OG Revolver.
  • The weapon is faster than the Hand Cannon with 1.2 fire rate beating 0.8 fire rate.
  • There are three revolvers in the game, all of which were vaulted. The Scoped Revolver and the Revolver were both favored by the community.
  • The Revolver used to use Light Bullets before being changed to Medium Bullets.
  • This was the Sixth item to head to the Vault after the Tactical Submachine Gun.
  • The Revolver dealt the highest damage for a weapon that uses Medium Bullets, with the Legendary variant dealing 66 hitpoints' worth of damage.
  • The reason why the Revolver was not used often was because of the damage drop off with the weapon that made the Hand Cannon better.
  • There are Epic and Legendary variants of the Revolver were leaked in the files of Patch 9.30
