"Single charge semi-automatic hunter pistol with .500 high caliber ammunition. Designed to engage everything that alive. Its enormous firepower compensated with long and often reloads"
- — Description.
The Tanfoglio Thor is a unique high caliber pistol. It has the highest damage of any firearm in the game starting at 400 damage, which is equivalent to one all-barrel IZH shot, and dropping out to 120 damage at 100m, making it considered a hand cannon capable of annihilating most target at every range with one shot. In short range, a one-shot kill is guaranteed.
Despite it's exceptional killing power, it's performance at ranges is hindered by a number of factors. It is equipped with unique iron sights, having no solid pointer that directly indicates where the bullet lands. Instead, the sights are a rectangular, empty "box," and the bullet lands directly in the center of the box. While the gun performs well, it has a difficult W-Task, poor accuracy at range and both of the available customization optics have relative small field-of-view, which make landing a shot at longer range difficult. It is also impossible to engage multiple targets at once (unless they line up) due to the frequent reloads. Also, its poor penetration may not secure a guaranteed kill when engaged against an armored target at longer range.
However, it is possible to get the Thor accuracy to a maximum of 108 with an expensive combination of the costly non-W-Task Leupold optic, the Kiba special high caliber silencer, various gunsmith skills and scout clan skill. This will effectively turn the Thor into an extremely capable pocket sniper rifle that would function similarly to a bolt-action sniper rifle.
The Tanfoglio Thor possesses a low mobility for a sidearm, and more so with attachments. However, the Thor is an excellent weapon to complement mid-range SMG in large maps, where the mobility of the SMG will usually be faster while the Thor's hefty ammunition reserve will excel in longer-ranged engagement, even more so than the Desert Eagle and S&W Stealth Hunter with proper aiming, skills and attachments.
