    Ah yes, but of course. Thanks for reminding me of that, Hawkthorne.

    Silly me, I seem to have forgotten that...

    Also the Fine Revolver is simply for sale. You can buy as many as you like. Though this might have been added by UAP, I am not sure (haven't played without Drog's fine patches for ages).

    So the Gunsmithy discipline is left with the Hand Crafted Flintlock and the Hushed Revolver - which I completely forgot about in my earlier post. This might say something about the usefulness of the Hushed Revolver though.

    Actually, I think you can buy or steal it from some gunsmiths. That might be just my faulty memory though.

    I think firearms master had one, I remember this dialog;

    Master Firearms: So what do you want my rifle or mastery in firearms?
    Evil Me: Mastery please..
    M F: Now you are a firearms master.
    E M: No. I am THE firearms master. (and as I recall that gun was LGR)

    I need to give him credit btw for someone missing his index finger he gave a hell of a fight.

    He has one alright. He and no one else.

    He carries one, that is true. Also, you can get it as a gift if you deny mastery training, I think. I was referring to the pistol though.

    The only Long Range Pistols in the game are the ones the player makes, as far as I know.

    Indeed. They should have given him a more powerful and unique weapon (I wonder if Drog considered placing the Levered Machine Gun here), and one which wouldn't be possible to acquire by means of stealing or killing + corpse-looting. Would make the choice more interesting and actually hard.

    Patching your games before starting writing guides might be a good idea, or so I've heard.

    Since I'm speaking from actual experience, Muro, you should try butting out for a change.
    Take your snark someplace else.

    Amusing. Some of us just can't take to-the-point criticism, can they?

    Judging from the weapon parameters you mentioned in your guide, Vaz, you have been playing an early unpatched version of the game. One which is practically crawling with bugs, frankly.

    Any reasonable Arcanum player installs at least the latest official patch before even starting his game, so you can expect most readers of your (or any) Arcanum guide having the most patched version of Arcanum on their hard drives.

    Therefore, knowledge coming from your emphasised "actual experience" is worthless to the readers when it comes to parameters which were changed in the official patches. Accept that fact with dignity or continue demeaning yourself with your unfounded huff.

    No. It wouldn't fit his image of a sniper.
