The RUST Python Revolver is a mid-to-high ranged, very low rate of fire gun in RUST. They are absolute powerhouse guns that pack the single highest damage of any non-raid firearm.
The weapon is very slow to reload, has a tiny magazine size, and kicks like a mule. So why then is it such a popular weapon choice? It hits like a miniature Assault Rifle, requires almost nothing to craft, and uses the cheaper of the two primary ammunition types.
Yes, you may only load a python with six bullets at a time. Sometimes, that is all you need. The python also has a deceptively decent range, capable of hitting heads from a considerable distance.
Pythons may be acquired from a number of military or locked crate types and scientists of most types. They are highly sought after as early game weapons and can quickly turn the tide on wipe day.
Players may research them directly or invest considerable Scrap into a Tier 2 Workbench for acquisition via the tech tree.
The python accepts the following bullet types: HV Pistol Ammo, Incendiary Pistol Bullet, Pistol Bullet.
In addition, this weapon is a prime choice for setting up Auto Turret defense systems, even into the late game when higher-tier weapons become available.
