It is a Halloween themed weapon that is dual wielded by the player. The weapon shoots bullets that are able to inflict the Burning effect upon hitting an enemy player or monster. At max Efficiency, it is a 2-3 shot headshot and 3-5 shot bodyshot.
Despite its name, there appears to be no revolver aspect of the weapon besides the shape.
Their handles appear as if they were carved from the stalk of a pumpkin.
Burning candlesticks sit close to the weapons’ hilts and seem as if they give the weapon its burning attribute.
The two barrels are textured with a dark purple base color and some black outlines. A red/orange/yellow rod runs through the middle of the barrels.
Two jack-o-lantern like insignia adorns the lower parts of the barrel.
The weapons are dual wielded by the player. It shoots at a quite fast fire rate for a backup, regular bullets with instant travel time and can inflict the Burning attribute upon hitting enemy players or monsters. Both pistols hold 8 bullets with a total of 16 bullets. Upon spawning, the player is given two extra magazines.
When reloading, the player flips the barrel open, dumps out the two magazines and inserts two extra ones. It has no delay mechanics.
It has relatively high damage, good fire rate, moderate capacity, and average mobility.
