Best Pistol?

48 replies 540 views Edited Mar 20, 2013

Lately, I've been having trouble deciding which pistol to use... I love Marlowe's Para 9, but, at the same time, the Raffica is really fun to use, too. And the Arm Micro is really good in CQC, but it's not very reliable at medium or long distances...

So, what's your favourite pistol and why? What are its pros and cons?

There are only two tragedies in life: one is not getting what one wants, and the other is getting it.

Hahah I can't really use the Pistole effectively, unfortunately. My friends are really good with it, though.

Oh, be quiet. Everybody knows the Tau is just a Wes wanna-be with a scope. LoL, JK, ROTFL. 

 

On a more serious note, pistol choice mostly depends on what long gun you're using since long guns are more powerful in general. I used to use the para a lot but it just wasn't (BF) accurate enough for me. For G-Mal and Dragon loadouts I use the micro, for M9 I use the Tau, and for AK I use the para. Raffica is cool, but it just isn't good at blindfire or long range. I might suggest it for a Kal loadout (if I would suggest the Kal at all). For a Fal loudout I would use a micro or para.

My favorite is the tau. It's the only pistol that can have callout and it has extraordinary power. Para-9 is good too with blindfire it is much more effective than the arm micro. Raffica is just bad.

This is what I use: Marlowe's Para-9. Overall, the Para-9 is the easiest and probably most accurate pistol to use. .

 

And you can do this with it.

Please. All other guns except the Tau are for Tryhards. Tau's great, but not if you're a Dragon user, since then you won't have a non-scope weapon.

funny to think that Elena's raffica was probably one of the most used pistols in the g-mal era without ever being used. Simply to get her 3rd booster along with her G-mal(which was the weapon of choice then)
