This gives Leon an advantage in shootouts as he can fire faster and outlives enemies in most cases. If an enemy manages to get within melee range, use Leon's Roundhouse Kick ability. The Roundhouse Kick is very useful if you are surrounded as it can hit multiple targets, and knock down human targets.
