7 Days To Die Pistol


The pistol is a very handy short-medium range weapon. It uses 9mm Rounds and has a magazine capacity of 15 bullets. If you got the right ammunition with you, the pistol will reload automatically or you can also manually reload by pressing R.

This semi-automatic handgun can be found around the 7 Days To Die world by looting Toilets, Containers, Loot Bags, Guns Safes and Weapons Bag. You can also buy it from a Trader or craft it by collecting all the required items.

Combat Using Pistol

The Pistol is a very effective weapon for dealing with groups of zombies in 7 Days To Die. The decent-sized magazine can be further increased by adding a Magazine Extender Mod. Normal zombies can be killed with 2 bullets to the head while a Bloated Walker Zombie takes 3 bullets.

You can even try stealth combat since the pistol has a short 15 meters noise range. If other zombies are not nearby you can try a sneak attack and take out zombies with headshots. The pistol can be made into an even more lethal weapon by adding some of the mods mentioned below.
