The Heavy Handgun is a Blue Class weapon that appears in both Manhunt games. It is just like the Light Handgun only stronger, but has an ammunition shortage (only 9 rounds where as the Light Handgun has 15 rounds). It is nearly as strong as a Shotgun. The real life equivalent is the IMI - Desert Eagle (Chambered for the .50 Action Express cartridge).
In Manhunt, it appears in the missions Press Coverage, Wrong Side of the Tracks, Trained to Kill (If brought by the player), Border Patrol and Key Personnel and in Manhunt 2 in Assassination, Most Wanted, Altered State and Release Therapy. It is a weapon used by Cerberus, Project Militia, The Bloodhounds, The Legion, S.W.A.T. and the Carcer City Police Department.
Alternate Names of Heavy Handgun are Desert Eagle, Avenger Force and .50 AE GS.
Just like the Light Handgun execution, Danny spins the hunter around and whacks the him in the right side of the face with the side of the gun, causing the hunter to fall to his knees. Danny then holds the hunter's head and shoots him in the face.
