Animation of the Handgun.

The Handgun is a gun found in Locked Gold 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 contain a Handgun, so it may be necessary to create multiple worlds to find one. Alternatively, on the Desktop version Desktop version, Console version Console version, and Mobile version Mobile version, it can renewably be obtained from opening Golden Lock Boxes found in Dungeon Crates.

Its best modifier is Unreal.
