it's still pretty useless isn't it?RG (xbox) 16:08, 25 March 2009 (UTC)


Quite to the contarary, it is a useful side arm to pull out if you have to reload your main weapon. It does as much damage as a standard 10mm pistol and .32 calibur ammo is easy to find.PitifulKnight 21:21, 27 March 2009 (UTC)

reload of almost every weopon is fast and you can't skip it when it happens automatic. but maybe it's usefull when your missile launcher is shot out of your hands (or any weapon actually)62.163.88.139 16:18, 31 March 2009 (UTC)

You can't have weapons shot out of your hands.--24.207.14.255 03:27, 5 April 2009 (UTC)

It seems to do more damage than it should to tough enemies, particularly the higher level trogs. Even after getting my gear back I found myself using this pistol and killing trogs with it in fewer shots than a lot of my higher damage weapons.

Wild Bills Sidearm is best of the three smaller pistols + varients?[edit source]

So if Wild Bill's Sidearm is the best, then whats the sequential order after that?

  1. Wild Bill's Sidearm.
  2. Zhu-Rong v418 Chinese pistol.
  3. Colonel Autumn's 10mm pistol.
  4. 10mm pistol
  5. Chinese pistol
  6. 32. pistol

Better against trogs?[edit source]

i collecting ingots when going up the tower,took forever with this thing to take out the wild men,used most of my stims,the tree trogs come running up,2 fledges and a norm,took all the out,a shot each, anyone else think it's more damaging against trogs?--JoeHanSon 10:13, 5 July 2009 (UTC)

I also noticed this; it was killing trog brutes and savages in fewer shots than high damage weapons too. I think this is along the same lines as the glitch mentioned in the article. It seems to do extra damage to strong enemies.

Could just bypass DR. That or it does more damage than we think. J.J.-Lopez 20:54, 19 August 2009 (UTC)

In GECK, it has nothing that could suggest anything like this. It's just .32 that does more damage then normal. P22 07:34, 20 August 2009 (UTC)

The glitch was trolling. The original line was "This weapon may glitch do big damage attack", or something close to that. That, and Trogs are rediculously weak. Brutes are on par with standard Super Mutants. Nitty 07:37, 20 August 2009 (UTC)

Has anyone tried this out in V.A.T.S? It has an incredibly long range with 95% head shot when crouching. My character has high sneak and sniper perks so that may help. It has better accuracy at range then the hunting rifle also.

about as fast as you can tap the fire button?[edit source]

wth, it should be saying: the fastest semi-automatic firearm in f3. Because if you see people shoot with their handgun in call of duty 4, it's insanely more fast. and that's how fast you can tap the fire button RG (xbox) 10:20, 5 July 2009 (UTC)

This isn't only pistol that is as fast as you can tap the fire button. Same is true for several other pistols: 10mm, Chinese, .32 and Laser. P22 01:05, 19 August 2009 (UTC)

Not true. When I fire most pistols, there is a small but significant delay between shots. Speaking of COD4, test out the RoF of a laser pistol and then compare that against the Desert Eagle in COD4 and you will understand the difference. If this weapon truly fires as fast as you can pull the trigger, I'd consider using it. But pistols do NOT fire as fast as you can pull the trigger. 98.249.221.165 05:06, November 7, 2009 (UTC)
