After assaulting the boat you’ll meet up with a wounded man named Grayson. During your chat with Grayson acquire the pistol, adding it to your collection of other great weapons. It’s honestly one of the best pistols in the game, and since it’s a Power Pistol, you can make use of the ricochet effect to do even more damage to enemies.

Here’s a quick look at the stats the weapon had when we picked it up:

  • 276.1 DPS
  • 111-136 Damage
  • 22 Attacks Per Second
  • +78-96 Thermal Damage
  • +6% Crit Damage
  • 20 Headshot Damage Multiplier
