Past Rumors

Image for the achievement Weapons Collector. Notice the Golden Pistol in the shopping cart.

Originally, it was a hypothetical weapon by the name Golden Gun that takes an appearance of a golden Desert Eagle drawn in the old cartoony way that the icons for Respawnables' Weapons had. It is one of the Weapons that is unusable in the Game but seen in various images. Before, not much was known about this weapon other than the fact that it appears in the Weapons Collector achievement image. However, it has been rumoured by players that it was an overpowered pistol and when used in multiplayer, Digital Legends will ban players for doing so.
