It’s been over a year since the Hand Cannon was last seen on The Island, but now this banger returns. Quite literally. Because the Rare variant of the Hand Cannon deals a whole lot of damage with an insane fire rate. A piece of advice? Go get it.

Get it before the 12-year-olds do.

This update dropped today at 10 AM ET and according to leakers, you won’t have to wait too long for Patch 15.50. They predict it dropping on March 2nd.
