This type of .45 Automatic pistol was designed by one of my tribe almost four hundred years ago. Learning its use is a New Canaanite rite of passage.

Joshua Graham, Honest Hearts

The .45 Auto pistol is a weapon in Honest Hearts.

Background[edit | edit source]

A single-action, semiautomatic, recoil-operated pistol, the .45 Auto is a timeless design dating back to the early 20th century. This timeless design has been originally used by the U.S. Army, but eventually gave way to more advanced designs. Regardless, it has been adopted after the Great War as the signature weapon of New Canaan. The original designer of the .45 Auto was a Mormon himself, making it a natural choice.[1]

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

.45 Auto pistol expanded

The pistol fires the powerful .45 Auto ammunition, offering excellent damage and accuracy at range. It has excellent illuminated sights, making it a good choice in all lighting conditions. Its only drawback is that it has a small magazine capacity.

The silencer modification makes it an excellent weapon when subtlety is needed, especially since it is an improved holdout weapon (can be sneaked in with a Sneak of 50) and the strongest silenced weapon of this type.

The .45 Auto pistol can fire a total of 745 standard rounds before breaking, or 1,117 shots with the .45 AP HD slide modification.

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

  • Obviously, the .45 Auto pistol is based on the Colt M1911, though it is not a perfect replica thereof.[2]
  • The pistol's firepower was improved to make it more in line with player expectations, rather than reality.[3]

Bugs[edit | edit source]

  • PCIcon pc.png PlayStation 3Icon ps3.png Xbox 360Icon xbox360.png It is affected by the standard double reload animation length bug. Simply re-equipping it solves the issue.

    Joshua Graham: "In the Great Basin and Colorado Plateau, all tribes are known for a specific weapon. White Legs are known for their big submachine guns, "storm drums." They broke into an armory near Spanish Fork and have been using them for years. Of course, the Dead Horses have their wooden war clubs and even the Sorrows have their Yao Guai gauntlets. This type of .45 Automatic pistol was designed by one of my tribe almost four hundred years ago. Learning its use is a New Canaanite rite of passage."
