Pistols

P18C

  • Ammo Type: 9mm
  • Magazine Size: 17 (25 with Extended Mag)
  • Body Shot Damage: 23/16.1/13.8/10.4/12
  • Headshot Damage: 46/32.2/27.6/20.7
  • Fire Rate/Reload Time: 0.06s/2s

Pistols are almost universally useless once you get past the early-game, but the P18C actually does a pretty decent job of masquerading as an SMG, with a full-auto mode that makes up for its low damage and actually boasts the highest DPS of any pistol.

P1911

  • Ammo Type: 0.45
  • Magazine Size: 7 (12 with Extended Mag)
  • Body Shot Damage: 41/28.7/24.6/18.5/21
  • Headshot Damage: 82/57.4/49.2/36.9
  • Fire Rate/Reload Time: 0.11s/2.1s

The P1911 packs a hefty punch for a pistol, but with only seven shots you’ll have to make sure they all count, particularly when up against an armoured assailant. Nevertheless, this is more than capable of seeing you through a few early-game encounters, and may even occasionally see you through some intense late-game close-quarters fights where you somehow both miss all your shots with your primary weapons.

P92

  • Ammo Type: 9mm
  • Magazine Size: 15 (20 with Extended Mag)
  • Body Shot Damage: 35/24.5/21/15.8/18
  • Headshot Damage: 70/49/42/31.5
  • Fire Rate/Reload Time: 0.135s/2s

A very uninteresting but still decent pistol, the P92 features average damage, average reload speed, average everything, really. A good backup for when you run out of bullets for everything else, which is really what pistols are for.

R1895

  • Ammo Type: 7.62
  • Magazine Size: 7
  • Body Shot Damage: 55/38.5/33/24.8/28
  • Headshot Damage: 110/77/66/49.5
  • Fire Rate/Reload Time: 0.4s/7.5s

The R1895 packs more of a punch than any other secondary slot weapon (minus the Sawed-Off, of course), but a slow fire rate and a slow reload speed make it hard to justify keeping over any of the other pistols.

R45

  • Ammo Type: 0.45
  • Magazine Size: 7
  • Body Shot Damage: 55/38.5/33/24.8/28
  • Headshot Damage: 110/77/66/49.5
  • Fire Rate/Reload Time: 0.25s/3.2s

Miramar has it lucky, because the R45 replaces the R1895 there, and improves upon it in many ways. Same damage, but half the reload time, twice the fire rate, and easier to control in general.

Skorpion

  • Ammo Type: 9mm
  • Magazine Size: 20 (40 with Extended Mag)
  • Body Shot Damage: 22/15.4/13.2/9.9/11
  • Headshot Damage: 44/30.8/26.4/19.8
  • Fire Rate/Reload Time: 0.07s/3.08s

The newest of the pistols and finally a rival of the P18C for best full-auto pistol, the Skorpion sadly does not come out on top. Its major selling point is a large clip size, and a large number of attachment slots to help control its recoil, but everything else – damage, fire rate, reload speed – is a little worse than the P18C, making it an unsatisfying weapon to use in my experience
