Introduced Patch 16.00

The Makeshift Revolver is a Pistol in Battle Royale. It is available in Common, Uncommon, and Rare variants. It uses Medium Bullets and has a headshot multiplier of x2.0. The Makeshift Revolver is essentially the same as the normal Revolver, except it has a lower damage and lack of first shot accuracy (54/57/60 > 46/48/50).

The Makeshift Revolver is used to craft the Primal Pistol and the Revolver.

Strategy

  • The Makeshift Revolver should be replaced as soon as possible by a Primal Pistol or Revolver.
    • Dealing less damage than a Common Revolver and lack of FSA, the only good variant is the Rare one that can deal 100 to the head.
    • Like the Revolver, it has a limited mag and a moderate reload time, so don't waste bullets.

Changes

Trivia

  • The Makeshift Revolver bears a resemblance to the Hand Cannon from Save the World.
  • This is arguably the worst Pistol to use in late game scenarios.
  • It is one of the five Makeshift weapons in Battle Royale.
