The [[Hawk and Little]] '''Combat Pistol''', also appearing as the '''Desert Eagle''' in the [[3D Universe]], is a [[weapon]] featured in ''[[Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas]]'', ''[[Grand Theft Auto IV]]'' and ''[[Grand Theft Auto V]]''.
   
== Description ==
+
It also appears in some cutscenes of ''[[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City]]'', but it is never available in normal gameplay.
   
The Desert Eagle is far more powerful than the other pistols in the game (headshots with this weapon in GTA IV will release a large cloud of blood from the victim). It holds 7 rounds per magazine in San Andreas and 9 per magazine in GTA IV. It kills in very few shots the majority of the time in San Andreas; it takes 3 or 4 body shots when your skill is not hitman level, if your skill reaches hitman level you can kill non-armored NPCs in one shot and two for armored NPCs. The San Andreas Desert Eagle is modeled after the .50 caliber [[wp:Desert Eagle|Desert Eagle]] while the GTA IV version is modelled after the .357 variant.

==Design and Performance==
  +
The Combat Pistol takes the form of a '''Desert Eagle''' in most games, and it is referred to as such in GTA San Andreas. It is far more powerful than the other pistols in the game (headshots with this weapon in GTA IV will release a large cloud of blood from the victim). It holds 7 rounds per magazine in San Andreas and 9 per magazine in GTA IV. It kills in very few shots most times in San Andreas; it takes 2 body shots when your skill is poor level; if your skill is gangster or hitman level you can kill non-armored NPCs in one shot and two for armored NPCs. The San Andreas Desert Eagle is modeled after the .50 caliber [[wp:Desert Eagle|Desert Eagle]] while the GTA IV version is modeled after the .357 variant.
   
The Desert Eagle, referred in Grand Theft Auto IV as a "Combat Pistol", is a more powerful handgun than the [[Pistol]], but sacrifices ammunition capacity for it, holding only nine rounds in the magazine as opposed to seventeen rounds for the Pistol. The Combat Pistol can be purchased from any of the three gun shops in Liberty City for $1,500 and every additional magazine is $100, but cannot be purchased from [[Little Jacob]]. This, like all other pistols, can be fired from a car, but it's semi-automatic capabilities and 9 round magazine make it nearly useless in drive-by's and car chases in the eyes of some players. However, if you are skilled enough, you can take out rival drivers with a single well placed round. The Desert Eagle is more powerful than the [[Glock]]; however, the Glock has double the magazine capacity, allowing 15 rounds to be fired in the time it takes to fire all 9 shots including reloading from the Desert Eagle.

However, if you are skilled enough, you can take out rival drivers with a single well placed round. The Desert Eagle is more powerful than the [[Glock]]; however, the Glock has almost double the magazine capacity, allowing 17 rounds to be fired in the time it takes to fire all 9 shots including reloading from the Desert Eagle. The Desert Eagle takes about 3-4 shots to an unarmored NPC in the body to kill them. The Desert Eagle in GTA IV has a much higher fire rate than the GTA San Andreas Desert Eagle (it is the same as the Glock). Which is odd, as the Desert Eagle in real life does have a semi-automatic rate, but much slower than that of the Glock due to its heavy recoil.
   
The Desert Eagle in GTA IV has more than double the fire rate of the GTA San Andreas Desert Eagle (if the weapon skill of the Desert Eagle in San Andreas is up to Hitman, then the GTA IV version has exactly double the fire rate).
+
In Grand Theft Auto V, the "Combat Pistol" now takes the form of a compact pistol that closely resembles an H&K P2000 combined with a Beretta Px4 Storm, that has very similar statistics to the normal [[Pistol]] (same rate of fire and magazine capacity). However, the actual Desert Eagle is available as the [[Pistol .50]], to those who purchase either the special or collector's edition of the game.

―GTA V description on the Rockstar Games Social Club.

The Hawk and Little Combat Pistol, also appearing as the Desert Eagle in the 3D Universe, is a weapon featured in Grand Theft Auto: San AndreasGrand Theft Auto IV and Grand Theft Auto V.

It also appears in some cutscenes of Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, but it is never available in normal gameplay.

Design and PerformanceEdit

The Combat Pistol takes the form of a Desert Eagle in most games, and it is referred to as such in GTA San Andreas. It is far more powerful than the other pistols in the game (headshots with this weapon in GTA IV will release a large cloud of blood from the victim). It holds 7 rounds per magazine in San Andreas and 9 per magazine in GTA IV. It kills in very few shots most times in San Andreas; it takes 2 body shots when your skill is poor level; if your skill is gangster or hitman level you can kill non-armored NPCs in one shot and two for armored NPCs. The San Andreas Desert Eagle is modeled after the .50 caliber Desert Eagle while the GTA IV version is modeled after the .357 variant.

In Grand Theft Auto IV, the Combat Pistol is more powerful than the standard Pistol, but sacrifices ammunition capacity for it, holding only nine rounds in the magazine as opposed to seventeen rounds for the Pistol. The Combat Pistol can be purchased from any of the three gun shops in Liberty City for $1,500 and every additional magazine is $100, but cannot be purchased from Little Jacob. This, like all other pistols, can be fired from a car, but it's semi-automatic capabilities and 9 round magazine make it nearly useless in drive-by's and car chases in the eyes of some players. However, if you are skilled enough, you can take out rival drivers with a single well placed round. The Desert Eagle is more powerful than the Glock; however, the Glock has almost double the magazine capacity, allowing 17 rounds to be fired in the time it takes to fire all 9 shots including reloading from the Desert Eagle. The Desert Eagle takes about 3-4 shots to an unarmored NPC in the body to kill them. The Desert Eagle in GTA IV has a much higher fire rate than the GTA San Andreas Desert Eagle (it is the same as the Glock). Which is odd, as the Desert Eagle in real life does have a semi-automatic rate, but much slower than that of the Glock due to its heavy recoil.

In Grand Theft Auto V, the "Combat Pistol" now takes the form of a compact pistol that closely resembles an H&K P2000 combined with a Beretta Px4 Storm, that has very similar statistics to the normal Pistol (same rate of fire and magazine capacity). However, the actual Desert Eagle is available as the Pistol .50, to those who purchase either the special or collector's edition of the game.

Head south from there towards Playa Del Seville. On the corner as the road curves west towards the Ocean Docks, head along the beach and look in the corner of the wire fence that separates the beach from part of the docks.

WhetstoneEdit

  • Southwest corner of warehouse in junkyard. Take the northwest road out of Angel Pine and take the first right. Follow this road northeast and look for the Angel Pine Junkyard on the left side of the road. Head down the dirt path and into the junkyard, and head to the heap of scrap in the middle of the junkyard. In front of the heap of scrap, there is an open warehouse with a cement truck inside. Head inside this warehouse and the Desert Eagle is in the southwest corner.

San FierroEdit

  • Garcia - Starting from Zero RC, go south just and take the first alley to your left, then left again into a small enclosure just in front of STW:Books. You will find it in the southeastern corner.

Tierra RobadaEdit

  • Bayside Marina - In corner of wall behind house from the Gant Bridge, head north until you reach Bayside, and take the first right you come to.

AlderneyEdit

GTA VEdit

  • Can be bought from Ammu-Nation for $600.
    • Can also be taken from shooters in Ammu-Nation's range, however the Assault Shotgun method must be used on the clerk first.

GTA IVEdit

  • The Desert Eagle in GTA IV, while not referred to as a "Desert Eagle" in-game, does feature a "Deagle 47" etching on its barrel.
  • GTA IV's price of $1,500 is true to the Desert Eagle's actual retail value, as they usually go for $1,500-$2,200 for the .357-.50AE respectively. The gun in GTA IV is the .357 model, making the price accurate.
  • You can get it free without cheating, at the beginning of GTA IV. You must first go to the weapon store, aim at the dealer's leg and shoot; he will draw his Desert Eagle. Kill him and pick up the weapon. Be warned, some guards armed with shotguns and MP5s will appear from around the corner. It is best to buy/bring a baseball bat, lock on and hit him multiple times. If he falls down on the first hit (he usually will), you can wait until you see the gun in his hand then beat him while he's on the floor. As long as no shots were fired, his well-armed buddies won't come around the corner and you can simply walk out with the pistol.
  • In The Ballad of Gay Tony, at the start of the game, Luis has a Desert Eagle with 50 rounds of total ammunition.

TriviaEdit

GTA Vice CityEdit

  • The Desert Eagle can be seen in several different cutscenes in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City:
    • In the mission Supply & Demand, Ricardo Diaz can be seen with a golden Desert Eagle during the cutscene where he shoots his video player.
    • In the mission Rub Out, Lance Vance wields a regular Desert Eagle during the cutscene where he and Tommy gun down Diaz.
    • In the mission The Shootist, Phil Cassidy can be seen dual-wielding two Desert Eagles during the cutscene at the shooting range, one of which he gives to Tommy (although Tommy uses a regular pistol during the competition).

GTA San AndreasEdit

  • The appearance of a .50 AE Desert Eagle in San Andreas is slightly anachronistic, as the model firing it first went on sale in 1995, while the game takes place in 1992. A .357 or .44 version would have been more accurate instead, since these two would fit in the game's setting.
  • In GTA San Andreas, using the Adrenaline cheat code reveals that the firing sound for the Desert Eagle is the same as the Pistol but slowed down.
  • It is possible to use a bug, to make the gun shoot faster. It is possible, by doing: Aim, fire, release both fire and aim, click Crouch button, and do the following again.
