"High-caliber hunting revolver with optic scope installed. Heavy 7.5 inch barrel with ergonomic pistol grip allows to shoot comfortably with decreased recoil effect."
- — Description.
The Smith&Wesson Stealth Hunter is a powerful revolver sidearm from Set 6. Comparing to other high caliber sidearm like TIS Desert Eagle, Colt Python Elite and Tanfoglio Thor, the gun boasts a middle-of-the-road damage and firerate. However, it stands out of the crowd with highest base accuracy, penetration and mobility of all high caliber sidearms, and relatively low recoil and non-existent visual recoil for a revolver. It also come equipped with a Leupold compact optic by default with a much larger view and informativity comparing to other pistol's optic, and the recoil is low enough for double-tap fire. This makes the Smith&Wesson an excellent substitution for sniper with mobility of a pistol.
This revolver is best used in mid-long range, however close range combat is completely viable with proper triggering discipline and hip-fire technique, thanks to the base accuracy and recoil.
- Investing on the "Basic IPSC Training for Pistols" skill from Scout Skill Tree is recommended as it will max the S&W's accuracy up to 101.
- S&W can kill an enemy with just one direct hit from up to 70 meters on Hardcore Mode. Thus, using this as a substitute for sniper rifles is encouraged if one prefers to use a primary other than snipers.
