Dead island Pistol stats.jpgDead Island Weapons

The Pistol is a weapon in Dead Island. The pistol is normally one of the first guns the hero will find with plentiful ammo, normally dropped by thugs, as well as the gun's corresponding ammo. The pistol is relatively weak, but when modified with the Pride Gun Mod or Shock Mod, they become extremely powerful tools.

It is recommended to attempt to find and use pistols with the "Ordinary" or "Spiteful" Prefixes

The game will randomize places where you find guns, including on the bodies of those killed. The only time the gun will stay in the same location is if the weapon was a quest item.[Verification needed]

The Revolver can be acquired very easy early in the game. There is a hut in the resort which has a dead man with the Revolver and ID Card 08 next to him, it will ALWAYS be there. [3]

[edit] Ammunition

The easiest way to obtain ammunition for the Pistol is killing police officers in the prison, or killing punks in various places like the pump station.

To get ammo for all small arms immediately after the prologue turn right and head past the wood fence to a trail. Follow the trail, at the fork, head left. There is a man trapped behind a fence in a bunker. Kill the zombies trying to get to him and he will reward the hero with 30 rounds of pistol ammo which can be use with any side arm. The nearby truck can be taken, follow the trail to the right at the fork and stay to the right of the path to drive the truck out and on to the main road.[Verification needed]

[edit] Random potential locations

The hero can scavenge over eighty craft parts and weapons from the bodies of the dead and slain undead, metal chests, metal wardrobes, luggage, etc, called loot. The item is chosen randomly from a master list. The master list is different for each area.[12]

"Amount" is the number of other loot items which possibly can be be spawned in the same location.

Pistol can be sometimes found randomly in these locations:

[edit] Trivia

  • The pistol uses the same reloading animation of Call of Juarez: the Cartel, also developed by Techland.
