The Holdt R4 Pitbulls are weapons in Just Cause (1).
They are two handguns which are always carried by Rico, even after dying. They have infinite reserve ammunition, yet only 6 bullets in a cylinder, although because they are always dual wielded, they behave the same way as a single pistol with a magazine of 12. They are not hugely powerful compared to the other weapons available to Rico, although can be fired relatively rapidly. The Pitbulls are available from the start of the game.
The Pitbulls are small, silver coloured revolvers. Although they are small, they are much chunkier than most revolvers, as the body of the gun extends and gives the impression of a large barrel.
They are very similar to the Smith & Wesson Model 29, presumably modified by the Agency.
- Although not particularly powerful, the Pitbulls make good weapons in an emergency (out of other ammunition), or for providing suppressive fire.
- They are best used when dealing with small groups of enemes at low level Heat.
- They're replaced in Just Cause 2 by "Rico's Signature Gun", which is larger, more powerful and has an underbarrel grenade launcher, which is purely cosmetic and does not actually fire.
- If you fire one round from one gun and not the other, you can't reload, as the reloading animation depicts both guns being reloaded.
