Pistol_EmptyTheClips

Cooldown 200. For 20 rounds, the action cost of firing pistols is reduced from 1000 to 500.

Empty the Clips effectively allows the user to fire pistols twice as fast. With normal quickness and no other relevant skills, this means the user can fire a pistol twice in one turn, instead of only once.

Skill and Mutation Interactions[]

  • Triple-jointed can potentially cause Empty the Clips to have no cooldown, allowing it to be used multiple times in succession.
  • Fastest Gun in the Rust also reduces the action cost of firing pistols. When combined with Empty the Clips, firing a pistol has a total action cost of only 250, allowing a pistol to be fired four times in one turn with normal quickness.
  • Quickness-increasing mutations, such as Heightened Quickness or Adrenal Control, can increase the total action points available per turn, allowing one to fire pistols even faster.
  • Akimbo allows the user to fire multiple pistols simultaneously, enabling even more total shots per turn.

Ability Cooldown[]
