—Weapon's description in Gallery

The Gifted Revolvers is a Backup weapon introduced in the 15.7.0 update. It can be obtained for a limited time during the Christmas holidays in the Armory.

Description

It is a pair of Christmas-themed revolvers that shoot regular bullets. It has very good damage, a below-average fire rate, a decent ammo capacity, and average mobility. It is a 2 shot when maxed out.

Appearance

They are a pair of old-style revolvers popping out of a two blue Christmas gift boxes with yellow tape. Each revolver also has a wooden handle and a dark gray barrel.

Performance

The player, holding each replica in each hand, shoots from each revolver by turn and not simultaneously. The right-hand revolver starts shooting, then the left-hand revolver shoots, and the process repeats. The revolvers shoot regular bullets with instant bullet travel time and have a close to medium range. Moreover, these bullets can pierce through players.

When reloading, the player throws both replicas away and grabs another pair off-screen.

It has Fixed Delay. This means that once the player switches from any weapon to this weapon, the Gifted Revolvers will always have a pull-up delay lasting around half of a second.

Strategy

Tips

  • The Gifted Revolvers boast high damage and good capacity.
    • It has, however, a below-average rate of fire.
  • It's recommended to use this weapon in mid-range battles. Considering the absence of a scope, firing against distant enemies can be extremely difficult, especially when the opponent is moving.
  • Close enemies are similarly difficult to deal with due to the time the Gifted Revolvers take to deal damage to an opponent.
  • Aim for the head to maximize damage and shoot only when you are sure to hit the target.
  • Take advantage of the piercing shot attribute and try to line up your shots with multiple enemies.
  • Its bullets can only travel so far, like the Inevitability's, meaning it's really only good at close-medium ranges.

Counters

  • Pickoff its users from long ranges.
  • Keep moving or jumping to avoid its lethal bullets.
  • Area damage weapons can easily disorient their users.
  • Rocket jump, as it makes the user hard to aim due to the gun's low fire rate.
  • Use a one shot weapon to kill your opponent before they have a chance to hit you.

Recommended Maps

Equipment Setups

  • Use a Primary weapon to finish off wounded enemies and to protect from both Melee and long-range attackers.

Trivia

  • It is essentially the Christmas version of the Dual Revolvers, considering the blue gifts replacing the receiver.
  • Like the Sawed-Off Shotguns the reloading animation looks similar to Reaper's reloading animation from Overwatch.
  • It can be obtained from the Trader's Van during every Christmas.
