That said, let’s go!

4. Cattleman Revolver

Cattle revolver

This revolver has been available since the start of the game and offers average damage, decent range, moderate reload speed, and a good rate of fire. This is a nice weapon based on the Colt Single-Action Army “Peacemaker” revolver, which was the most popular handgun during the Wild West era.

In real life, Pat Garrett used a Colt SAA to kill Billy the kid. It really is a legendary gun, despite being the least powerful revolver in RDR2.

3. Double Action Revolver

The Double-Action Revolver will be available from Gunsmiths after completing Chapter 3. The specialty of this pistol is its very high rate of fire, and it does not require cocking the hammer to fire continuously. Other than that, the gun offers rather low damage, moderate range, and average reload speed. Its accuracy is also somewhat low, and that’s mainly because of the speed at which it fires.

This gun is based on the Colt 1892 revolver for army and navy.

In the game, Micah Bell wields two unique double-action revolvers with deadly speed and precision. He really takes care of his guns and he doesn’t wield any other firearms for most of the game.

2. LeMat Revolver


This is an unusual revolver. It can hold 9 cartridges instead of the usual 6 cartridges a revolver can hold. There is also a shotgun that is “attached” to the LeMat, and it can fire a single shotgun slug. This is a powerful revolver with high damage and long range, but low rate of fire and reload speed.

You can get this weapon in Saint-Denis after completing The Gilded Cage mission in Chapter 4.

This weapon was based on the unusual firearm of the same name made by French physicist Jean Alexandre LeMat.

1. Schofield Revolver

Schofield Revolver

The Schofield is the most reliable revolver in the game. It’s very balanced. It offers a decent rate of fire, damage, reload speed, and range. It is also very accurate and can kill most human enemies with one well-aimed shot to a vital point. This weapon will serve you perfectly. This is why it is ranked as the best Red Dead Redemption 2 revolvers.

The Schofield revolver is based on the Smith and Wesson Model 3 and was named after Major George W. Schofield. It was an extremely popular revolver in the Wild West. Legendary gunslingers like jesse james, Wyatt Earp and even John Wesley Hardin would have handled Schofield revolvers.

In the game you may have seen Dutch van der Linde skilfully and elegantly wield Schofield double revolvers.
