The Pistole (pronounced Pis-tol-ay) is a weapon found in Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception and Uncharted 4: A Thief's End.



The Pistole is similar to a short, double-barreled, sawed-off shotgun, though not as powerful as Uncharted 4's Flintlock. Its downsides are its range and cylinder capacity of 2 shells. However, it is useful in close combat situations as a backup weapon, due to the lessened need for accurate firing and its effectiveness with run-and-gun techniques.

Players will spawn with this weapon as a secondary in a Sniper Rifle and Pistole match. The gun appears to have two barrels which can be fired in quick succession. After both barrels have been emptied, they can be swung out to the side and shells loaded into the back of the barrels.


It will take enemies down in one, but it is limited to close quarters. This, and it's low ammo count, can make it unreliable.


Uncharted 2: Among Thieves

  • The Ice Cave - To the right of the Hero's default spawn point, inside of a hut.

Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception

  • Airstrip - Found in the central area, inside an office on the desk.
  • Chateau - Located inside the Chateau on the bottom floor, near the desk to the right of where the Villains initially spawn.
  • Highrise - On one of the yellow platforms held up by the crane.

Uncharted 4: A Thief's End

  • Starting Ammo
  • Reload Speed
  • Blindfire Accuracy
  • Clip Capacity
  • The Pistole is a powerful weapon at close range and is best use for finishing off enemies in their DBNO (Down-But-Not-Out) stage.
  • The main downsides to the Pistole is its small magazine size and fighting in mid to long-range firefights as the Pistole is a shotgun and can't reach very far.
  • The Pistole can be a viable replacement to the Spezzotti 12 Gauge if you want a shotgun but not as your primary weapon.

Pistole as it appears in Uncharted 4: A Thief's End

The Pistole's appearance has changed dramatically. It now has an external hammer and silver barrels. It is possibly modeled after a derringer pistol. It has a one shot kill on standard pirates or agents, but armored pirates or agents, Brutes, and Kickback Bosses take many more hits.

Uncharted 4: A Thief's End

The Pistole's appearance is nearly identical to its appearance from Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception.
