"Tactical Intervention Systems have redesigned the famous 12.7mm caliber semi-automatic pistol Desert Eagle with a special tactical modification that aims to increase its ergonomics. Its huge damage comes at the expense of huge recoil."
- — Description.
The TIS Desert Eagle is the first high caliber pistol available for purchase to new players. Comparing to other high caliber sidearm (Colt Python Elite, Tanfoglio Thor and S&W Stealth Hunter), it features slightly above-average accuracy, notably higher damage and medium penetration. However, one major advantage it has is a 7 rounds magazine, highest of all high caliber sidearms. With correct skills and customisation, the TIS Desert Eagle can easily achieve 100 accuracy and complemented with a damage that is higher than even the S&W Stealth Hunter, making the pistol an excellent substitution for sniper rifle for players with short range weapon build. At lower levels, this gun mostly will guarantee a one-shot kill up to 60 meters with correct attachments. However, due to the fact that higher levels opponents will typically have armor, it may take more than 2 shots to kill an enemy.
To compensate its outstanding damage, the Desert Eagle, similar to other high caliber sidearm, has extremely high recoil and a low rate of fire. However, when equipped with compensator, recoil is lowered enough that the low rate of fire itself prevent cone-of-fire expansion caused by the recoil stats, allowing the player to effortlessly send damage down range with proper trigger discipline. Nevertheless, the gun still exhibits massive visual recoil, therefore it is highly recommended to hip-fire at short to medium range to take advantage of the technique above, and only resort to sights and optics for long range headshots.
