The Handgun is a gun found in locked Chests in the Dungeon. It shoots rather quickly, although it does not autofire. It is superior in both damage and speed to the Flintlock Pistol.

Not every world's Dungeon may have a Handgun, so it may be necessary to create multiple worlds to find one. Alternatively, on the Desktop Version Desktop version, it can renewably be obtained from opening Golden Lock Boxes found in Dungeon Crates.

Its best Modifier is Unreal.
