The Double-action Revolver is a weapon featured in Red Dead Redemption 2 and Red Dead Online.

Description

Red Dead Redemption 2

The D.D. Packenbush Double-action Revolver is a fast-firing weapon with relatively low damage. The advanced mechanism prevents the need to cock, at the cost of a heavy trigger pull and lower accuracy. The quick fire rate makes this a good choice for mounted combat. This gun has an ammo capacity of six rounds, and can use Regular, High Velocity, Split Point, Express and Explosive revolver ammo.

GTA Online

Rumors of a lost relic from the frontier have begun to surface, and treasure awaits those bold enough to seek it. Keep an eye on your iFruit for a special in-game email containing the first clue, then follow the trail to unlock the Double-Action Revolver in GTA Online. Once you acquire your gratis Double-Action Revolver, complete the Headshot Challenge in Freemode for a GTA$250,000 reward and unlock it for future gun-slinging exploits in Red Dead Redemption 2 on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Acquisition

It can be acquired by the player in a secret Treasure Hunt mission found in the Grand Theft Auto Online update, The Doomsday Heist.[1] Players receive it in their inventory after "Eastward Bound"; players who obtained it via this method will be the only ones to have the gold metal customization.

In-game, the gun may be purchased from all gunsmiths by Chapter 3, after "A Strange Kindness". It can also be picked up during the Home Robbery offered by Sean (also in Chapter 3), where it is hidden under one of the bunk beds.

Trivia

  • The weapon is based on the Colt Model 1892 Army & Navy Revolver.
  • If the player’s honor is low enough, they can acquire a “Gunslinger Ebony” grip for this weapon.
  • This is the sidearm of choice for Javier Escuella - his version is silver-plated with some engraving on the frame, and it has a black, rounded grip embellished with silver, circlular carvings. Additionally, its barrel is slightly longer than that of the regular Double-action Revolver and it makes its own distinct sound.
  • Dutch Van der Linde uses a pair of these when he is in Guarma.
