- 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 Steady Hands mod, increasing its viability as a long-range weapon.
- Consider using a mod slot to fit a high-level Pistol Gambit - this can bring the crit chance up to around 30%. Combined with the weapon's high rate of fire, it can easily tear through tougher opponents.
- While it is fairly ammo efficient, when focusing on a build based on speed (Fire rate and reload speed) you can run out of ammo quickly. On defense this isn't much of a problem as pistol ammo pickups are more clustered and easier to replenish your ammo, but for other missions consider taking a pistol ammo box along just in case.
- The Vasto has a high chance of cutting corpses into pieces, similar to Slash-focused melee weapons. This makes the Vasto a prime candidate for a Desecrating 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.
- The Vasto was added in Update 9.3.
- Although shown as being mostly silver colored, the pistol's default color is actually black.
- 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.
- Thanks to its high Slash damage, the Vasto has a high chance of cutting corpses into pieces.
