Today im asking:

What are your three favourite pistols?

As fan of the pistol I'm curious to know what pistols you use, rate and recommend. I'm always hunting for a new addition to my collection so it would be nice to see what you have

Please exclude Jager Prime. No one has one on Xbox EU.

I have only had two pistols for quite a while now:

1) A Wolverine HP-5 - a burst fire gun with a T3 falloff barrel. It is good for engaging targets at longer than usual pistol ranges, like the Volge at a Bathhouse siege.

3) A VOT Blaster. It is only useful because one of it's qualities is a 1.5 magazine. With a T3 high-capacity magazine, that gives it 42 rounds, and makes it what a submachine gun ought to be, IMO: a full-auto weapon firing pistol ammunition. I like it for when enemies may pop up at ranges from pointblank to moderate, like small Dark Matter arkfalls.

I use both of these in combination with a Mark III Volge blast rifle, which is my long-range LMG. If I want a short-range weapon to use with a non-blast light machine gun, I use a shotgun, which is much more capable of taking out the afflicted in a Chinatown siege or the Scrappers in Silicon Valley.

My favorites are:
1)Black Cat
2)Demon Hunter MK2

If I had a Fate's Breath It'd probably replace my Demon Hunter MK2.

My BH blaster with 7540 damage and 75 in the clip. My ST rad blaster with 8403 damage and 16.4 FR. My QM quickshot bio blaster. Not saying these are by any means the best pistols in game, but just are the ones I use the most.

Used to run with a 3x Crit rad Wolf. Replaced in with a Sup Liberty Eagle.

By far the best pistol I have used yet. As mentioned before, it handles DM nicely. Volge hate it. Raiders and 99'ers dance a jig for me when I come near, making the kill that much more fun.

Me too. Considering suping my Elect CE Blaze. Already suped my Precious.

There's four on my list, and all get used for different reasons.

what I use most: VOT Blaster.
either syphon PL8, or bio ST.
vot blaster is just the best general use pistol IMO. does not at all require crits to get great dps, but can still crit for a little extra dps.

Warmaster, occasionally:
FRC Particle Ultimag, fire/rad

when I want high crit: HP-6 Wolfhound:
syphon and pl8
or hallow point.

And the good old 1 mag Northstar flare, kept at 1 mag:
quartermaster syn, reloader, blue reload - used with preparedness ego perk and an 8+mag ground pounder for evangels in SV. Until we get velocity rolls available on flares... the flare is just to trigger preparedness for GP ammo. I would use a courier for this setup, but courier changes the aim point - while a flare does not.

4x mag BHF Blaster (needs mag mastery for 5x mag)
OJ damage, 3x crit fire Wolfhound & jackpot Wildcat (tie)
2x mag, 2x crit bio converted Plate Slicer Wolfhound (needs crit mastery for 3x crit)

Currently has a 104 in the mag. I tried re-mastering it numerous times with no luck. I just can't justify re-mastering it anymore given the fact it will only raise the mag by 3, masteries cost 75 AF a pop (BS), and most of the time it takes way more attempts then it's really worth. Too much grind, too little joy.

On xbox na my favourite pistol is a 3x crit Wolfhound, a clan mate Zugo gave it to me as a blue which I then upgraded to oj (you could at the time).
It ended up getting an oj dmg role and I mastered it for crit.
When I ojd it got the Grenadier syn which was a nice syn for it.
Next is my Precious for no other reason than the name.
Next is a x2 dmg Frontier Revolver which I've only just realised how much fun it is when I had a little play with it today.
Going to try and get a 3rd dmg role on it and a t5 barrel and see how it performs.
Next is a x2 crit BHF Blaster. It's mastered for dmg but I might try for the 3rd crit. It also has white +8 mag & oj +24 mag roles.
Lastly a KLOC EVO Pistol cause they're worth 80m now on eu and this is on NA. My luck sucks lol.

1. My mini sniper. With radiation burns and my 1.08x DMG rig it does ~78k crit DMG before nano effects and ~112k under nano effect. I said F' it to the sat mods. Untradeable.

Defiance data had mag rolls on Pistols listed as +8 for oj, if I recall correctly... Which, if so, it would be worth it to re-master. The 104 mag Blasters are awesome. My Syphon PS one needs a mag mastery, but I'm not sure if I wanna reroll the T4 DMG mastery.

I get what you are saying EA but it still doesn't change my opinion about the cost of re-mastering it. Even at +8 mag it is still too much for a gun that is never leaving my inventory especially given how grindy the game is. I've already wasted at least 1000 AF (roughly $35-$40 worth if you buy it from the store) on this gun alone trying to re-master it and since weapon masteries cost 75 AF and yet are equivalent to a white (5 AF) or green (10 AF) roll it just isn't worth it.
