I need help with these 2 weapons. I can't find a single situation where I would use my pistol instead of the lancer or the shotgun. What exactly is the advantage of this weapon? Every time I have seen someone attempt to use this weapon, they died a horrible death without doing much damage.
At first I thought the magnum would be ideal for quick headshots because it would finish them off quickly but apparently this isn't the case. Getting a headshot with the magnum doesn't finish off the enemy fast at all because they just end up dodging the bullets since the magnum shoots pretty slow.
Either way, tips and situations on when to use the pistol are welcome. Thanks
