The Desert-5 is a semi-automatic pistol and a heavy weapon that appears in Uncharted: Drake's Fortune, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, Uncharted: Golden Abyss, Uncharted 4: A Thief's End's multiplayer, and Uncharted: The Lost Legacy.
Uncharted: Drake's Fortune (2007) and Uncharted 2: Among Thieves (2009)Edit
The Desert-5 is more powerful than the Wes-44 Revolver due to its larger caliber. It is overall the best magnum pistol, as it has 1 extra round per magazine, 2 extra rounds total can be carried, and it has slightly better accuracy. The only disadvantage to the Desert-5 is that it has a slightly slower rate of fire and higher recoil than a normal pistol.
Uncharted: Golden Abyss (2012)Edit
Uncharted 4: A Thief's End (2016)Edit
The Desert-5 was a DLC Weapon added to A Thief's End's multiplayer. It was released alongside the Survival gamemode update. The weapon can be dropped through a DLC Gameplay Chest or be purchased for 250 Uncharted Points.
As the Desert-5 is a heavy weapon, it cannot be modified.
Uncharted: The Lost Legacy (2017)Edit
The Desert-5 returned in Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, replacing the Barock 44. from A Thief's End as the game's 1 shot kill sidearm. It has very few changes from the Uncharted 4 version, but now has only 8 rounds in its magazine.
The Desert-5 is based on the Mark XIX variant of the Desert Eagle. It is incorrectly shown with very tall cocking serrations. The "5" may refer to it being the .50 Action Express version of the Desert Eagle. There are three variations of caliber: .357 (9 rounds), .44 Magnum (8 rounds), and .50 AE (7 rounds). Since it is so powerful, it is most likely the .50 AE version, which would also be correct on magazine capacity.
