Astra Model 357

Astra Model 357
Handgun ★★★ Usable

Good early for when you're lacking good HGs. Fodder later.

Also literally retarded.

Avtomaticheskiy Pistolet Stechkina

Avtomaticheskiy Pistolet Stechkina
Handgun ★★★★ Good

Or Stechkin for short. Good RoF buff. Actually combos nicely with other RoF buffs if you need more since her aura shape isn't as weird as Calico's. Works EXTREMELY well with IWS. Try to grab her unique equip, it helps.

Has a mod that makes her slightly better.

Avtomaticheskiy Pistolet Stechkina Mod

Avtomaticheskiy Pistolet Stechkina Mod
Handgun ★★★★★ Slight improvement, but not an especially large one

Stechkin's base version already got a pass for being usable.

Her mod gives a slight increase in her capabilities buff-wise. Her passive basically tries to turn her into a sorta-DPS to go with her buffs to allies, but TBH you'd be fine leaving it at the slight increase in power Mod 1 gives.

Beretta Px4 Storm

Beretta Px4 Storm
Handgun ★★★★★ Ridiculously Strong Buffer

A ridiculously overpowered handgun in the right hands. If you know what you're doing, she is absolutely bonkers. Led to a meme on older servers where "the practical number of RF teams you could field was equal to your sets of Px4 and Five-seveN."

Strictly speaking it isn't true, but it gives you an idea of how valued she is. What she does with her active skill (at lvl10) is reduce crit rate by 20%, but increase your crit damage multiplier by 50% for all dolls in her tiles. Considering that crit damage STARTS at 150%, and that its tile based, which means you can engage in tile fuckery (which makes these effects stack MULTIPLICATIVELY), and there you go. For RFs, with a +10 Gold Scope and 5-7, they maintain 100% crit rate through all this. For ARs, you need to worry about the math a bit more, but it is generally an overall increase unless your critscopes suck.

Works with TAC-50, which is part of why she is so hideously overpowered.

Calico M950A

Calico M950A
Handgun ★★★★★ Recommended

Very good benefits for night battle albeit on a slightly odd shaped aura, but easily workable still. Paired with guns that need a lot of RoF boost like Lee-Enfield a lot. Also allows WA2k to max out her RoF immediately through just their 2 buffs + formation bufftiles. Though largely pointless for MGs, she enables 1 of the most stupidly powerful formations in the game, the IWS-DPS squad.

GREEN IS THE DANG—

She now has a mod, which can be viewed here

Calico M950A Mod

Calico M950A Mod
Handgun ★★★★★★ Manages to somehow be even better than the original

One important thing with her mod is that she has a backwards facing tile now. This means fun times for Python fans, Nagant users, or users of any doll who prefers to be in the middle of the back row and could benefit from an attack speed buff, which happens a lot of the time. She also debuffs the enemy if the node you're fighting on is controlled by you, and buffs your attack and move speed if it isn't, but those are kind of icing on the cake for an already useful doll.

Oh, and the move speed buff is hilarious when combined with other move speed buffs, turning Hanyang Mod into a a rocket. This makes some boss fights hilariously easy as you give no fucks about their mechanics, and 60s is long enough for most battles.

You can probably leave her at Mod2, but her Mod3 equip is a suppressor equivalent with +20 evade at max. It's up to you whether that's worth it or not.

Carcano Modello 1891

Carcano Modello 1891
Rifle ★★★★★ Niche uses

Aka M1891/Strawberrycano.

The rifle you'd expect from the nation that fought 12 battles on the same spot in a row only to lose them all, and then went on to lose mountaineers to frostbite two years in a row in summer. Just look at that smug grin. "Tehee, guess we lost to Ethiopians again!"

…ingame, she has a weird skill that buffs dolls in her column slightly, which will later feature in a few specialized formations that include Python and is sometimes used to buff M82 (or Kar98k, in one of the few times she was ever brought ought the dorm) or her sister, to the point she's been called "Python's Exclusive Equipment" and "Grape's Exclusive Equipment." There's a couple of other niche uses as well (M200), but mostly, she looks like she needs to be supervised outdoors.

Machine Gun Special Extremely accurate to the anime and manga (which is not a good thing)

Props for accuracy. She spends the animoo's story just living in the dorms and only coming out for tests or really weird situations where they cant spare bodies, and she's basically the same in the game - she'll be in your dorms a whole lot. She also has three unique items that affect her passive but otherwise all do the exact same thing. She isn't completely useless, but there's not much reason to pick her over other MGs that don't have finnicky mechanics, because you frankly will not need that many MGs anymore.

Colt Single Action Army

Colt Single Action Army
Handgun ★★★★ Good

AKA SAA - THIS IS THE BEST GUN EV-cough Actually has very nice buffs and a decent skill. Not bad at all in night battles either with the acc up if you have crappy PEQs.

Her mod makes her a stronger pick, and more info can be found on her mod article.

Colt Single Action Army Mod

Colt Single Action Army Mod
Handgun ★★★★★ You're pretty good! *fingergun*

"Yay, we can all clear singularity now!" Oh wait... :V Fucking Ceia, I swear...

Yeah, she's a little over-hyped, but she's actually a fairly solid unit. A stacking buff every few seconds? Not bad at all. This allows her to buff firepower, accuracy and rate of fire all at once. Her main issue is it takes a few seconds for her skills to REALLY kick in, but she's great for the longer fights that start creeping up here and there, and for things like backing up M4 in her railgun mode. Not super necessary compared to before now that we have lots of buffing HGs, but she's handy for things like ranking maps.

Another fun thing about this mod you might not know is that the passive 2nd skill automatically activates on a cooldown that you can't see, so rifle tile buffs (which speed up handgun cooldowns) make this activate faster.

Her Mod 3 equipment is kinda pointless for her role, though, so unless you like the art or have bad OCD, she's fine at Mod 2.

Cz-52

Cz-52
Handgun ★★★ Budget FP buff if you ran out somehow

Not much to say. If you somehow dont have enough FP buffing handguns (unlikely unless you're noduping handguns and deploying lots of units in ranking) then she's a budget pick. Not bad for a 3 star HG but she won't see use very often simply because you're likely to have better ones lying around.

Daewoo Precision Industries K5

Daewoo Precision Industries K5
Handgun ★★★★ Recommended

Her basic tile buff is excellent, which instantly makes her the best handgun to use with MG echelons at day. It's also good for AR echelons at night, if you don't have 5* PEQs on your ARs, similar to SAA. The combination of a significant HG evasive buff plus very decent rifle damage buff also makes her a solid alternative to Grizzly for RFHG echelons. So far, so good.

…and then you notice that her skill is tile based. With proper setup, this means she gives an 174% evasion buff to HG/SMG, 81% damage buff to AR/RF, and/or 483% accuracy buff to MGs. This can a bit finnicky to pull off, but the results are hilarious enough to make it worth the effort.

De Lisle

De Lisle
Rifle ★★★★★ Assistant Gunner type

Falls into the same niche as Strawberrycano where she sucks on her own, but is excellent for supporting others who are actually good. Often paired with the Cano sisters or M200 in 3RF-type setups. A Grape/M200/Nagant Revolver/DeLisle/tank-of-some-sort-type echelon was used in ranking map reruns to kill death stacks.

Deutsche Waffen- und Munitionsfabriken AG Parabellumpistole 08

Deutsche Waffen- und Munitionsfabriken AG Parabellumpistole 08
Handgun ★★★ Core fodder

Aka P08, the Luger, the... it has a lot of names. Also 1 of the world's most collectible pistols. One of the earliest automatic pistols ever adopted by anyone, and a whole bunch of other honours.

It was however, not exactly a great battlefield weapon (in fairness, pistols in general were not), and the doll is... mostly that. Has FP and Acc tiles. Not as good as the Chinese Mak Clone or SPP1 for those. Unlike those, has a +eva skill instead of a +fp/acc/somethingoffensive skill.

Unfortunately this makes her less consistent than defensive pistols like Nagant, but it has the odd meme use. It is definitely not a practical standard use gun though, and more something you pull out because you for some reason need its weird mix of features (not likely, but it might happen) or are somehow very desperate (much more likely). If you need a night pistol on the cheap though, you're probably better off with... Nagant, Bren Ten, or 1911.

Dornaus & Dixon Bren Ten

Dornaus & Dixon Bren Ten
Handgun ★★ Enhancement fodder

Yet another CZ75 clone. Mostly just fodder, but she has a +firepower buff skill that isn't super horrible and a +firepower buff-tile that make her usable in an emergency where you somehow need firepower buffers but lack any. %s are passable but not great.
