Pistols, in Apex Legends, are important for first guns players pick up when scrambling after their drops. The ability to put scopes on all pistols is another excellent feature added in the game.

(Barrel stabilizer is an essential attachment to decrease recoil of the RE-45).

It comes with 8 bullets in total. You cannot use any attachments with it.
