Max Payne has wielded a number of weapons throughout his bloody and over-the-top career, but he’s always had a 1911 semi-automatic pistol at his side. Although there has been an emphasis on the variety of new weapons in the recent promotions for the game, fans of the popular series shouldn’t worry too much because Max’s trusty 1911 will make its return in Max Payne 3.
The 1911 features machine-gun like firing rates, and you’ll get the ability to dual-wield them in the upcoming title. Extremely light-weight, the 1911 still packs a punch, adding to Max’s dash and “Shootdodge” moves. Today’s trailer shows off the 1911 in detailed 360-degree renders, as well as its killing power.
