Starfield includes randomly generated loot, and a fortunate player discovered an exceptionally potent pistol that surpasses the majority of rifles in the game.
The game's loot system adds excitement as players are unaware of when they will encounter an extraordinary weapon, but they are confident that it will happen eventually.
The legendary pistol discovered by a player possesses formidable perks such as Furious, Rapid, and One Inch Punch, establishing it as one of the most powerful weapons in Starfield.
A significant portion of Starfield's top-tier loot is generated randomly, which is why one player had the fortune of discovering an incredibly potent pistol that outperforms the majority of rifles in the game. Starfield boasts an extensive assortment of weapons, but since many are randomly generated, some may possess greater power than others. It all hinges on a behind-the-scenes dice roll.
If, by chance, two Starfield players manage to discover the same make and model of a gun concealed in the same safe, there is a high likelihood that the two weapons won't be equally powerful. One of the thrilling aspects of the game's loot system is that players are unaware of when they will stumble upon an incredible Starfield gun, but they have the assurance that it will happen at some point.
That's the exact experience that occurred to a Starfield player named FrostedFrickers, who shared a picture of the extraordinary legendary pistol they discovered while exploring the galaxy. In a post on the Starfield subreddit, FrostedFrickers proudly displayed their One Inch Punch Modified Calibrated Old Earth Pistol. This handgun delivers an astonishing 181 points of physical damage with a fire rate of 60 bullets per minute, making it exceptionally powerful even when compared to other formidable weapons found in Starfield. Three out of its four modification slots are occupied by a compensator, a tactical grip, and armor-piercing rounds. These features alone classify this remarkable find as a legendary pistol, but as is often the case with Starfield weapons, it is the perks that truly elevate it to the next level.
The gun possesses three remarkably lethal perks, each capable of causing devastating effects on its own. The first perk is Furious, which amplifies the damage inflicted with each successive hit. Then there's Rapid, which increases the firing speed of the bullets by 25% compared to the normal rate, resulting in even greater damage when combined with Furious. Lastly, there's the One Inch Punch perk, which causes the bullets to spread out like a shotgun. Essentially, this transforms a simple and antiquated handgun from Earth into one of the most potent weapons available in Starfield.
Despite the imaginative nature of many guns in Starfield, the Old Earth Pistol is based on a real handgun called the M1911, which has gained popularity in movies and video games. The One Inch Punch perk also has an intriguing history. The term "One Inch Punch" refers to a genuine combat technique that gained prominence through the martial arts icon Bruce Lee, although he did not invent it. The technique originated in China and was developed for close-quarters combat. It was purportedly designed to maximize the impact of a standard punch by delivering as much force as possible while minimizing movement. In Starfield, there are both incredible and subpar perks, but considering the true significance of the term, having the One Inch Punch on a centuries-old pistol that surpasses the power of most shotguns seems fitting.
Starfield is currently accessible on PC and Xbox Series X/S.
