The Pistol is a firearm featured in Escape Dead Island. It is a standard pistol which allows you to target and kill enemies from range.



The pistol is the first instance of a range weapon acquired in the game, being acquired relatively early on. It is an excellent weapon for Cliff Calo's arsenal, as it allows you to deal with enemies from range, most notably the Spitters which are introduced at the same time as the pistol. The pistol deals decent damage and can quickly kill a Shambler with headshots or even bodyshots, though Pistol Ammo will always be scare after first getting the pistol. The real trade off of the pistol is that when firing it will make a lot of noise, instantly alerting all zombies to your presence, as well as waking up any zombies that are playing dead on the floor. This becomes a problem if there are a lot of zombies around or if there is a tough enemy or two, such as the Butcher, who will become alerted to your presence by the gun firing.


  • The pistol deals 7 damage on a bodyshot and 14 on a headshot.
  • The pistol has a fire rate (including reloading) of 2.22 bullets per second. This translates to a DPS of 15.54 and 31.08 respectively.
