Hey there, guys! This is the latest edition of my PUBG Survival Guide 101, where I’ll be talking the small and handy Pistols in PUBG. Except for all the Sharmaji ke sons (You’ll get it if you’re an Indian), most of us normal people usually get a pistol or a Shotgun at most as our first gun in PUBG. Pistols are small in size and deal low to average damage, with medium recoil. Pistols in PUBG have low magazine capacity and low to average firing range and speed. There are about 6 Pistols in PUBG.
Let’s take a look at them one by one in detail:

It can be equipped with suppressors and magazine attachments. It has a decent damage with low recoil. The firing speed is good and the range is average.

The P1911 is also a semi-automatic Pistol. It fires .45ACP bullets It has a magazine capacity of 7 rounds (12 with extended magazine).

5. Flare Gun
Probably the most important and most useful pistol of PUBG- The Flare Gun. The Flare Gun summons a special supply drop for you, in PUBG. If you are outside the playzone, the drop would be a bulletproof vehicle. If you are inside the playzone, it brings you a special air drop which the best guns like AWM, M249,MK14, etc. However be careful while using it as it gives away your position to other near by players and they too can come to loot your drop. Also, make sure you are aiming exactly at 90 degrees in the sky and make sure there are no buildings or other structures around you. Because there’s a probability that the crate with get dropped there. Hence, to be make sure your Flare Shot isn’t wasted, be in the clear before firing it.
Here is my list from best to worst:
