―GTA V description on the Rockstar Games Social Club.

The Hawk & Little Pistol .50 is a weapon in Grand Theft Auto V, and takes the form of a Desert Eagle (like the Combat Pistol from the previous games, but without its famous "Beaver Tail").


The weapon is a bonus to those who purchased either the Special or Collector's Edition and is available for free in game at Ammu-Nation. It will also be available to buy with in-game currency in the enhanced version of the game from any Ammu-Nation store. However, the players who bought the Special/Collector's edition of the original game will still get it for free.

The Pistol .50 has the highest damage per shot of pistols, and a standard semi-automatic rate of fire. Capacity is lower than that of the Pistol but it can be freely improved to be on par with it. It is available at level 1 in GTA Online and is free, making it a powerful weapon to begin with. The main weakness of the Pistol .50 is its accuracy, which makes it ineffective for drive-by shooting and of a limited efficiency while on foot. However this handgun remains effective against NPCs in close quarters. This is a good weapon for quickly finishing the first waves of a survival as a single shot to the chest is able to kill enemies at lower survival waves.

  • Like the GTA IV rendition, the Pistol .50 carries 9 rounds in a single magazine. Though this seems incorrect because of it being a .50AE pistol. In real life, the .50AE Desert Eagle would only hold 7 rounds while the .357 correctly holds 9 rounds.
  • The Pistol .50 is notable for having a very high recoil; when fired, it will blow Michael, Trevor, or Franklin's hands upwards heavily.
  • The extended magazine is far larger than it should be. It is rougly twice as long, while holding only +33% bullets than the regular one. The size would have been correct if the regular clip had only 7 bullets. 
  • Even though it is based on the Combat Pistol seen in previous games, the Pistol .50 actually lacks the long beaver-tail of an actual Desert Eagle and has a trigger guard that bears more resemblance to that of the PT92.
  • The Pistol .50's beta model much more resembles its real life counterpart than the final product. It was possibly changed to avoid copyright issues.
  • Its sound is similiar to GTA IV's Pistol .44. Additionally, both weapons work in a similiar way, having similiar magazine capacity's (9 for the Pistol .50, 8 for the Pistol .44), both have a high recoil, both have the name of their caliber in the name and both share the record for being the most powerful pistols in the games they appear.
  • The Pistol .50 on the Xbox 360/Playstation 3 platforms had an error where the reload sound effect would be almost completely silent. On the Xbox One/PS4 and PC platforms, this has been fixed.
