...still love th FN-AAL Gyrojet. Back in 3E it was the most powerful handgun one could find.

I still use that for a few of my characters. They updated the stats for 5E in Run & Gun.

The Ruger Thunderbolt.

Best pistol ever!


(but that could also be because I am a huge Ruger and Colt fan IRL)
Where am I going? And why am I in a hand basket ???

Praetorian is back but it now looks ugly as sin. I much preferred its Gun Heaven 2 look, where the bayonet was neatly integrated as a slashing weapon. Not the ugly flintlock+bayonet style. My new favourite is the Cavalier Champion: Nastiest Heavy Pistol around, at only +1 Concealability and requiring you to keep a bunch of bullets at hand to quickly reload it.

Having a pistol belt with four Cavaliers is also a neat way to use this gun. Works especially well with quickdraw holsters  ;)

Most OP pistol ever lol.


I'm traditionalist so the Savalette Guardian. Not as good as the Ruger, but it's reliably solid in every edition it's been released in.

I'm with you here - the Guardian's been my favorite piece for many of my gun-toting runners.

...my Missions version of Leela has one. Still the nastiest "handgun" out there at 10P...and with EXEX rounds....

The 3E version of the character also used it.

Not subtle at all though (however she loves things that go "WHOOOOOSH-BOOOOOM!")

...and for my Bushido Cowgirl adept KK, Nothing better than pair of a Ruger Super Warhawks, particularly loaded with handload EXEX  Big, intimidating, and puts very big holes in what she hits.

With the ambidexterity quality she fires them alternately each pass (saves having to reload as quickly) while her pool (specialised in Revolvers and enhanced by smartlinks and an adept power) allows her to split her attacks and usually put couple mooks in a world of hurt in the same action.

Why not just get the 11S taser? :D

...11S taser?  Well the Krime Tingler is 10S and wasn't available for Missions until a couple months ago. It also is only two shot so you have to reload more often and accuracy is terrible.

Review the missions errata, the Tingler is 11S, and was intended to be lol. What did you miss the #thistasergoesto11 campaign?

The Tingler does take a little work to get that accuracy up, but man, it goes to 11. :D  Two shots is a bummer, so just buy two (or more) and avoid reloading during combat.

...though not actually a gun, an Ares Silverlight Pistol Crossbow with Static Shaft S&S bolts is probably the best to stun a target into oblivion: starts at 12 S(e) - 5, and it can hold 4 shots.  Give it a smartlink and custom grip and you can crank the accuracy up to 9 (10 if you use the Enhanced Accuracy: Bows adept power). A little expensive for the ammo  (20 bolts @ 1,000•) but can be very effective.

Yeah, but with that sucker 1-2 shots is worth an entire clip of APDS in other weapons. And you can load other types of bolts, as well.
