Being that this is the most powerful handgun in the world, and can blow your head clean-off, you've got to ask yourself one question. Do I feel lucky? Well, do ya punk?

— Harry Callahan, and the Fallout 2 item description

The Smith & Wesson Model 29 is a revolver in Fallout 2.

Background[edit | edit source]

The following section is transcluded from .44 Magnum revolver. To modify, please edit the source page.

The Smith & Wesson Model 29 is a six-shot, double-action revolver chambered for the .44 Magnum cartridge, manufactured since 1955. This large frame revolver offers excellent accuracy, firepower, and reliability. Multiple models remain available and quite popular in the wastelands, from the shortened 4 1/2 inch variant to the full size, high end monsters with scopes.[1] By default, the revolvers come with tritium illuminated sights.[2]

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

An excellent weapon that can carry its weight throughout the game with the right build. It offers more damage than either the 10mm pistol or the Desert Eagle .44, while requiring one action point less to fire. With Bonus Rate of Fire and ten action points the revolver can be fired three times per round and reloaded without compromising the ability to make aimed shots. With Fast Shot and ten AP it can be fired five times.

Variants[edit | edit source]

  • A speedloader can be added to the weapon, halving the reload cost to 1 action point.
