Trivia[]

  • In real life the Derringer is a generic term for any small and easily concealed pistol i.e. 'pocket pistol'. The derringer pistol earned it's fame and infamy as being the weapon of choice for gamblers or other men of ill repute, as a woman's personal protection piece stuck in a stocking, but most famously as the weapon of choice for assassin John Wilkes Boothe, who used a .44 caliber muzzleloading percussion derringer to kill President Abraham Lincoln in Ford's Theatre during a play.[1]
  • The Derringer was introduced into the game proper in 0.50 update.
