- Vin carries a pistol for self-defense but has terrible aim.
- Jinx, Grim and Mog each carry their own pistol when being escorted through the Sewers by Jak.

While the pistol is terrible for power, it is great for alerting Jak to Jinx, Grim and Mog since hearing the pistol firing is a sure sign that they are under attack by the Metal Heads. It is probably widely used because it is the cheapest and easiest gun to get a hold of in Haven, where it will still do considerable damage to the average citizen.
