Steady and reliable, the Vasto revolver combines speed and power for a classic gunslinger feel.

The Vasto is a powerful and effective revolver. Striking a balance in damage and fire rate between the Lato.png Lato and the Lex.png Lex, it also sports a high critical chance, good accuracy, and a short reload, but suffers from low ammo capacity and moderate recoil.

This weapon can be sold for Credits64.png 5,000, it is also a requisite ingredient for the akimbo variant Dual vastos.png Akvasto (x2) and TnoGunblade.png Redeemer.

Notes[]

  • Although shown as being mostly silver colored, the pistol's default color is actually black.

Tips[]

  • Due to the semi-auto nature of the Vasto, for longer ranged targets it is better to fire more slowly due to the vertical recoil. Otherwise, the faster you pull the trigger, the more likely it will fire bullets above the enemy and miss.
    • If required, the recoil can be decreased by the Mod TT 20px.png Steady Hands mod, increasing its viability as a long-range weapon.
  • Consider using a mod slot to fit a Mod TT 20px.png Pistol Gambit - this can bring the crit chance up to 44% at max rank. Combined with the weapon's high rate of fire, it can easily tear through tougher opponents.
  • While it is fairly ammo efficient at base, when focusing on a build based on fire rate and reload speed, you can run out of ammunition quickly.
  • The Vasto has a high chance of cutting corpses into pieces, making it a prime candidate for a Desecrating NekrosIcon272.png Nekros to bring along, as the game considers the cut corpses as separate entities, essentially giving multiple corpses to desecrate from a single enemy and thus yielding more chances to create more drops.

Trivia[]

  • Vasto is a Latin verb, meaning "I destroy / I lay waste / I ravage."
  • The Vasto's cylinder revolves with every shot and upon reload, making it the fourth weapon with a non-static model.
  • The Vasto appears to be a double-action revolver of intermediate caliber, rather than a high caliber single action akin to those used in the 19th century West, like the Colt Single Action Army. The handle/grip is flush with the rest of the weapon, leaving no exposed hammer to manually cock. However, there appears to be a rocker on the rear of the Vasto that could be a hammer lever.
    • Unlike real revolvers, however, the Vasto ejects cartridges after each shot.
