Where to find the Tactical Pistol in the Callisto Protocol

The Callisto Protocol features a total of five guns to supplement protagonist Jacob’s melee baton and GRP device – and you’ll need all the help you can get to fend off the game’s seemingly endless onslaught of mutated enemies. However, a few of these weapons are actually easy to miss altogether, requiring you to round up schematics in certain chapters before you can craft them at a Reforge station. One such gun is the Tactical Pistol, which can be a particularly useful addition to your arsenal thanks to its high rate of fire, which makes it perfect for taking down smaller, weaker enemies. In this guide, we’ll tell you where you can find the Tactical Pistol Schematic so that you can make the most of your time in this survival horror title.

Further reading

The Tactical Pistol Schematic isn’t obtainable until pretty late in the game. You can find it in Chapter Six: Below, which is a rather slow-paced segment of the game that requires a lot of stealth-oriented gameplay. In this chapter, you’ll be introduced to blind foes who wander about somewhat aimlessly, requiring you to sneak up behind them for brutal knife takedowns, so take your time and be as safe as possible.

As you make your way through the chapter, you’ll come to a room that has three intersecting pathways. In this room, three of the blind enemies will come into your sight – one from each side and another from directly in front of you. Sneak around and take these out with your knife, then proceed through the door that was ahead of you upon entering the area. Follow this corridor until you need to vault over some metal bars that have fallen on the ground.

In this hallway, be mindful of another blind enemy stuck to the wall on your right that will attack as you get closer. Once you’ve defeated it, continue into the cell on your right, which will have a few lockers that you can open for supplies. On the desk in this little area is where you’ll find the Tactical Pistol Schematic, which you can pick up and add to your inventory. Lastly, use it at the next Reforge station you come across to craft the Tactical Pistol.

PS5 Pro: news, rumored release date, price, and specs
A PS5 standing on a table, with purple lights around it.

Rumors are running rampant about a supposed PlayStation 5 Pro, or PS5 Pro for short. Just like we got a mid-generation upgrade with the PS4 Pro  during the last console cycle, many people are expecting PlayStation to release an incrementally more powerful machine to bridge the gap between the launch unit and an eventual PlayStation 6. Leaks have been coming out from some fairly credible sources, with a lot of juicy and very specific details about what a hypothetical PS5 Pro could look like. As credible as these sources may be, we do still need to take everything we see with some skepticism until Sony officially confirms that this system even exists. Until then, here are all the rumors out there regarding the PS5 Pro.
Rumored release window

A constant release window that all leaks have pointed to is sometime in Fall of 2024. That's right around the corner, probably in the September through November range, meaning we should be getting an official announcement on the console if that is indeed the plan. It appears that PS5 Pro dev kits are now in the hands of more developers, who have been asked that PS5 Pro-enhanced games be submitted for certification in August. These developments point toward a 2024 release.
