The EDF Pistol is the basic sidearm for Earth Defence Force soldiers in the field during the Second Martian Revolution.


The weapon is compact and accurate, so although not particularly powerful, fast-firing or hard-hitting, it carries a fair amount of ammo and can be used effectively at range with careful aim. The Pistol is mostly used by EDF Grunts and Guerrillas in the first half of the game. However the pistol saw very limited use after the Red Faction liberated the Free Fire Zone and started to advance towards Eos.  During the plauge armageddon, Kara used the EDF Pistol as her preferred sidearm despite the pistol being 50 years old.
