The Sneaky Pistol is a Backup weapon added in the 17.1.0 update as part of the Krampus Lottery.
It takes the appearance of an ice-clad pistol that shoots light blue bullets that can disable the jumps and the gadgets of enemies. It deals a high amount damage, a good fire rate of 85, and an average capacity of 8 for its fire rate, and an above-average mobility of 65. When at maximum efficiency, it is capable of being a 1-2 shot to the body with high modules.
The weapon is a handheld pistol, with the front coated in a luminescent blue substance. It follows a black and teal color scheme. Like its primary companion, the Ice Chaser, at the barrel seems to have icicles hanging at the bottom and on top of it has a teal gemstone-like bayonet. It has several red markings, three of them directly above three navy and gold banner. Besides that, it takes on the form of your average small pistol.
This weapon shoots light blue bullets with an instant bullet travel time. It is usually a 1-2 kill in the body depending on the modules and a one-shot to the head. This weapon possesses the gadget blocker and jump-disabling attributes, so when the bullets land on the player, they can barely jump, and at the same time, they cannot use their gadgets and module combinations. This weapon also does more damage to the cursed (Players who are cursed have a green skull above their heads).
When reloading, the clip is taken out and is replaced by another.
