The pistol is a trusty weapon that is always by your side. When first spawning into a game, you get 6 bullets. You have to search the area for more ammo. There is no limit on how much ammo you can carry. If you get downed and re-spawn, you will lose all your ammo, and be reset to the default 6 bullets. The pistol deals a total damage of 40 for every bullet landed on it's target with no extra Damage for Headshots, except if the Player has the Critical Thinking Perk.
