This weapon is highly favored by players because of its massive damage, shortest reloading time of all pistols and very high knockback for both bodyshots and headshots. Also, it's very accurate, so the chances of missing (spread) are very low. Most of the players will always carry this gun around because it's by far the best pistol to help you out of pressured situations. It's not only good for a last resort, but it can give knockback to zombies from a significant long range, even better than most primary weapons. Always try to buy either this pistol, or the .40 Dual Elites for making the best combinations between secondary and primary weapons for balanced gameplay.
