Modeled after the Israeli Military Industries' Desert Eagle, the Handcannon is named so after the Desert Eagle's notoriously large caliber and recoil.
In game, the Handcannon does the most damage of all pistols. It has a magazine that contains 8 rounds, and a second one can be purchased to double its fire output. The Handcannon is also the most expensive handgun at 500£. The Handcannon can also spawn randomly around certain levels, and is a lucky find for those fortunate enough to come across one.
