Best Upgrades for the Revolver

Upgrade Upgrade Priority
Fire Rate ★☆☆☆
Stability ★★★★
Reload Speed ★★☆☆
Damage ★★★☆

Stability will make landing those critical headshots much more easy, making this powerful gun even more deadly. After that, damage is your go-to upgrade, as being able to take down foes even if you don't hit them in the head is a big help.

Reload speed is less important than the other two, so save it for third. Since you'll mainly be using the revolver to one-shot foes, fire rate is rather unimportant, and should only be upgraded if you have extra parts to spare. Maybe save this upgrade for your second playthrough.

How to Use the Revolver

While headshots are important for any gun you use, this is especially true for the revolver, due to its low fire rate. However, this gun does pack a punch, and after upgrading the damage output, it can usually one-shot runners and hunters, even if you do not shoot them in the head.

Generally, it is good for smaller crowds, and since it is more accurate than the pistol, it is better at a medium range. It is very effective on human foes, since they are less likely to rush at you, and as mentioned above, they can be one-shotted even without head shots. For battling hordes of charging runners, the pistol will usually be a safer option due to its quicker fire rate.

    • I’m more of a stealth player so I didn’t enjoy the boss fight in the hospital. One touch and you’re dead, that’s not enjoyable or realistic. Might as well run outside and kick a bear. I’d get the same thing happen, dead. Too much story in this game as well, I feel like it’s hours of videos that takes away from the game play. Just give me the details and move it along. I don’t need to know who’s screwing who.
