Advanced Warfare Pistols Overview

In most Call of Duty titles pistols are one of the most underused sidearms available to players. It’s extremely rare that you’ll see anyone coming at you with a handgun in Advanced Warfare but these guns can actually be incredibly useful in certain situations. When you get stuck in a tight spot and are low on ammo in your primary weapon having a pistol to quickly swap to can be the difference between life and a quick death.

Tips for Using Pistols

Pistols aren’t designed to be used as a primary weapon in Call of Duty. Compared to other weapons their damage output is rather low, they usually don’t come with a ton of ammo, and don’t often fair well against guns like assault rifles or SMGs. They do, however, serve a great purpose as a secondary weapon.

Having a pistol in your secondary slot can be of great assistance if used correctly. First off, pistols are by far the fastest weapon to swap to from your primary aside from a combat knife. So if you run out of bullets in your main weapon you can quickly swap to your secondary (a pistol) and pop off a couple shots to finish off an opponent.

Pistols also have extremely high mobility. This means that having a pistol out rather than something like a sniper rifle or even a shotgun you’ll be able to run around faster. So, even just having one on your secondary to give you the ability to move around the map quicker can be beneficial.
