Silenced .22 pistol expanded

The silenced .22 pistol is a .22LR round handgun with an integrated silencer. It's classified as a silent weapon, and can be used to attack targets without alerting nearby creatures or NPCs to the player's presence. It also has bonuses to critical hit chance and critical hit damage, making it an effective stealth weapon in tandem with sneak attack criticals. It is a holdout weapon, and as such can be snuck into places where the player's weapons are confiscated. Along with Li'l Devil and the Police pistol, the silenced .22 pistol is one of only three guns that can be used as holdout weapons regardless of the player's Sneak skill.


The silenced .22 pistol can fire a total of about 495 standard rounds, the equivalent of 31 reloads, from full condition before breaking.
