The Pistole is awful awfulness of pure awful

35 replies 30 views Edited May 28, 2012

What is this, seriously. It's been awful from day one, nobody uses it EVER, but it's especially awful in the lab. AWFUL range, AWFUL spread, AWFUL power. Anyone who has spent any serious time on the lab knows that most of the time landing TWO SHOTS POINT BLANK will not kill. What in the name of sweet baby jesus is this thing? It's supposed to be a power weapon, but it might be the weakest piece of crap in the entire game. This thing has been needing major buffing.

I miss the real UC2 pistole. This redheaded stepchild is an insult to the family name.

It's fine. I'd rather get 1HK'd by the T-Bolt than blindfired out of no where with the Pistole.

I have to disagree,  I see many players using the Pistole effectively. Two shots point blank is an automatic kill, even from a short distance, you can still get a kill with two shots. I think it is best used as a one shot one melee kill. As naaros stated, when used in conjunction with the Militia Man kickback, it can be extremely effective in close ranges. However, I wish it was removed from the Lab, especially on maps like Desert Village where you can run around with it and get a good amount of kills.

I was honestly prepared for this to be a thread complaining about it being too powerful.  Seriously the Pistole works fine, and can even be a one shot one punch kill. It's fine and does not need a buff or any changes.

It's great to steel fist with. I use it more than the T-BOLT.

its total crap

- theres a reason people dont pick it up - any of the pistols bar the TAU are better for blindfire only kills and also steel fisting - and theres no point aiming since it range is 3 feet. 2 melees are better.

The MAG-5 is a long range Pistole that appears on more levels and is a 100% 2 hit kill unless it's a headshot.

I hate how the pistole can miss from a point-blank range; it's a ridiculously broken gun. Although, it doesn't matter to me if the gun gets buffed or not.
