  • I'm more than okay with it as a Primary. Most people prefer the Scout Rifles due to all around superiority, but the Hand Cannon does more damage (At least at close range, in my experience). Not to mention, I feel like I need to focus on my aim a bit more because of the small mags, whereas with a Scout Rifle, I can take a few shots and adjust my aim as necessary in response to enemy movement. Though it is somewhat odd to have a handgun as a primary, I suppose. FYI, my opinion is totally biased since I fricken' love revolvers in any game.

  • Increase the clip size and add scope attachments - then you can keep them in the primary slot and people will actually use them.

  • The recoil, small mag, and no sights (as far as I know) make them pretty useless.

    The game doesn't have a secondary though. The hand cannon certainly isn't a special weapon, and it certainly isn't a heavy weapon. I haven't used them, but I assume they have a huge headshot multiplier at close range to give them any kind of reason to use?

  • Well, they currently are primaries. Truthfully, they should fill the spot of a secondary, but seeing as no such thing exists in this game, Primary will have to do.

    • give it higher headshot damage so it kills in at least 1 less shot than scout rifles

    • It's actually pretty powerful, one shot hits a lot harder than a scout rifle. It would work as a secondary. Sniper - long range Shotgun - short range Hand Cannon - mid range The other weapon, can't think of name off hand, is different than most weapons so it still would fit in. If you are a precision shooter and didn't want sniper at the time, scout and hand cannon could work well together. In the end I could see it in either slot.
