The Pistol is a semi-automatic handgun that appears in Serious Sam's Bogus Detour.

Overview[edit | edit source]

The pistols are the first weapons the player spawns on the first level of the game. Like the Colt Anaconda and Schofield .45, they are always dual-wielded. They are fairly weak weapons that fire a single bullet each time the fire key is pressed.

The pistols are fitted with SC1FI-magazines, which gives the weapons unlimited ammunition, though they still have to be reloaded manually.

The pistols can receive several upgrades to increase their damage output, reduce reload speed or for increased rate of fire.

Tactics[edit | edit source]

  • The pistols are useful against weak enemies, such as Infected Fish, Gnaars, Marsh Hoppers or small groups of Orc Cadets or Orc Troopers, though its slow rate of fire preludes its use in large firefights.
  • As the pistols are quite weak and have a low rate of fire, they are best used as a last resort if the player is low on ammunition.
  • The pistol upgrades make the weapon more effective against large groups of Gnaars, Orcs or Marsh Hoppers, though it is sometimes best to switch to a more powerful weapon if possible.
