The Shot Pistol is a basic weapon in Fear Effect 2: Retro Helix.
The Shot Pistol is very similar to the .90 Pistol. It packs a stronger punch, but only carries three rounds of ammo at a time. It eliminates enemies faster, but the tradeoff is that more time is spent reloading due to its limited ammo capacity. Ammo for the weapon is somewhat scarcer than ammo for the .90 Pistol.
The Shot Pistol should be used against a single enemy at a time so as to save ammo.
