"Made for a more offensive approach."

The Hunting Revolver is a primary weapon for the Sniper. It is a long-barreled revolver fit with a wooden gun stock, grip, and carrying strap.

Compared to the Sniper Rifle, the Hunting Revolver deals 40 base damage, has damage ramp-up and falloff, can shoot 6 consecutive times before reloading, increases the Sniper's base health from 125 to 150, and also has 100% accuracy. It can only zoom without a scope, allowing for increased visibility and decreased movement speed penalty at the cost of zoom magnitude, and lacks the Sniper Rifle's laser dot. The Hunting Revolver cannot charge its shots, and so only deals 120 damage on a headshot regardless of time spent zoomed. As such, single headshots are significantly weaker, but multiple of them can be done in a short amount of time. Like the Sniper Rifle, the user needs to zoom in for 0.2 seconds before being able to headshot, and creates a tracer on each of its shots, visible to all players. The Hunting Revolver cannot reload while zoomed, and if reloading, will cancel the reload. Unlike every other weapon, its damage falloff occurs at double the range of usual.

  • Holding the zoom key while in the air will prevent the Hunting Revolver from playing its reload animation if it hasn't started, and therefore prevent it from reloading.

Comparisons from Team Fortress 2

  • The Hunting Revolver has the same base damage, damage ramp-up, damage falloff, and clip size as the Spy's Revolver. The Spy also has the ability headshot with the Ambassador on live TF2.
