The Revolver is cheap, prime for early game use. Although inaccurate, the Revolver's quick rate of fire allows it hold its own against players at most stages. Being a revolver, it has a low capacity of just 8 shots, but it's still an upgrade from its 1- and 2- shot alternatives. Taking a Revolver to a fight against opponents with metal armor is quite risky, as such opponents will take many more shots than normal to take out (even more so considering the small capacity). It is best advised to only use the Revolver against opponents with similar armaments or as a sidearm to another weapon.

Great weapon for the price, can compete with tier 2 guns If you have good aim. Downsides are the somewhat low damage, bad drop at range and inaccuracy when firing fast.

In the hands of a skilled user, this teeny little gun can accomplish big things. It's a surprisingly reliable weapon, more so than one would expect with the price point. It has decent ammo capacity and fire rate, and can hit enemies at ranges you wouldn't expect it to. Can be used for a cheap and effective roaming weapon, or as a sidearm to take advantage of it's draw speed and handling to give a nasty surprise to the guy who pushed you because he thought you were reloading.

this gun performs differently at the 3 different ranges, which you have to understand before using it.
at long range, this is very ineffective. it take maybe 1.5 seconds to recover from recoil and maybe 1 second to aim your next shot. and even if you hit it, you won't do any damage because guns with low "range" do less damage if you are trying to use them at higher ranges.
some people like to use this gun as a long range finisher when combined with the compound bow, but that has a lot of problems: (1) the compound bow is shaky at full charge which can make you miss (2) the aim cone of the compound bow is 1 degree meaning that even if you aim the full charged shot perfectly, you can still miss at long range. (3) even if you hit the full charged shot, the enemy can put up a wall barricade to give himself time to heal (4) even if you hit the compound bow shot, you can miss the revolver shots if he starts dodging or is near cover. (5) the compound bow shot can only hit one person, so if he has teammates, you will die or at least won't be able to loot your kill. (6) if you do kill the target, he knows you have primitive weapons and he might doorcamp you or try to raid you. i don't recommend this gun at long range even when paired with the compound bow.
at medium range, this gun has to be fired slowly still. if you try to burst fire at medium range, you will miss a lot of the 8 shots. but you have to be less perfect with your aim than when firing at long range since the target is large on your screen. if you fire this gun slowly, then this is like a improved version of the hunting bow because it is harder for enemies to dodge your shots. do not expect to beat people with high tier guns by engaging them at medium range with this gun as you need to not miss and kill them before they can retatiate or take cover or start dodging or put down wooden walls which is hard. i don't recommend this gun at medium range unless it is early game and everyone else just has bows and crossbows.
at close range, this can be used like a burst fire gun machine gun. it can do 35 damage per shot 8 times for 280 burst damage. at longer ranges, you have to recover from recoil and aim between each shot to continue firing. but at at close range, it is so hard to miss that you can burst fire and likely hit every shot. so it can be used as a assassin tool similar to the double barrel shotgun. but since it is not instantaneous like the double barrel shotgun, you will lose if the opponent starts dodging or shooting you immediately. check if the enemy has a lot of teammates before trying to assassinate him with this though because you can be killed if you have to reload against a bunch of people. it is better than the double barrel shotgun at about 1 square foundation or higher distance. (if you didn't know, the double barrel shotgun starts becoming really inaccurate at a distance of about 1 square foundation.) i love using this as an assassin tool. just sit in a bush or any type of blind spot or hiding spot and wait for people to pass. for example, if you know where people live and you see them doing a monument, you can sit in a bush as they go back home, wait for them to get close to your bush, and assassinate them.
if you are lacking cloth for this gun, you can buy tactical gloves at outpost for 40 scrap and recycle them to get 200 cloth. and at bandit camp, you can use the drone marketplace to do them same thing but you pay a 20 scrap delivery fee too. if you have a vending machine at your house, you can send the cloth to your house and then you can craft a bunch of revolvers easily.

The revolver's capacity, velocity, and rate of fire make it great for denying rushes and routs alike. You're better off using the crossy or bow if your opponent is fighting you behind cover, and it suffers in close quarters if your opponent can make full use of their mobility. As it uses pistol ammo, you should be wary of the comparatively smaller hitbox of the projectiles.

most people use this firearm as a cheap starting weapon. A tactic used by many players are spamming the revolver in close quarter combat and works especially well when you fire first

Pfefferpotthast[contributor] 229 pts. 6 years ago

Great early game weapon for mid range engagements. Personally I like it better than the Waterpipe Shotgun because you don't have to get close to get a kill. Overall a good early game choice.

Pros ::: Easy to Learn --- Really Cheap --- Good choice to avoid Rushs at the very beggining --- Versatile weapon at the beggining
Cons ::: Lose his value really fast, even at the starting game ---
Tips ::: Investing at some successor weapons (like Python Revolver or Custom SMG) should be considered. The revolver must be abandoned soon as possible as its loses his shine very fast, making you one step back if not caring to evolve your fire power.

Works great with Crossbow in Early game just hit a person with crossbow then shoot the revolver, Not usable at middle or end game beacuse of its low damage
