Usage & Description
Unkempt Harold is a deadly pistol which can be used in close and medium range encounters. Shots fired from this pistol split slowly (follows 3-5-7 pattern) into seven after traveling a certain distance. If the bullet hits the enemy whilst still in one piece, it does a total of 7x explosive damage as if it had split. A "Double Penetrating" Unkempt Harold will fire two spreads with one shot costing 6 ammo.
- Notable among the Unkempt Harold is its exceptional ability to kill Crystalisks, since when fired at a Crystalisk's legs, the splash damage from the explosions can easily result in all three legs being hit.
- The time the shots split is actually dependent on the accuracy of this gun. The more accurate it is, the later the shots will split.
- Unlike other guns with a double shot barrel whom fire dual projectiles in a random pattern, the 2nd volley of a Double penetrating Unkempt Harold will travel directly below the aimed shot in parallel fashion.
- When used with an Amplify Shield, only the middle shot in the spread will receive the full damage bonus, while the other six shots in the spread will play the Amplify damage sound, they will not receive the bonus.
- Both the name of the gun and the flavor text are references to the first "Dirty Harry" movie, starring Clint Eastwood. After the film's first shootout scene, Eastwood's character, Dirty Harry, holds his gun on a bank robber and says, "Now I know what you're thinking. Did he fire six shots? Or only five?"
- The gun's spread pattern (3-5-7) is a reference to the .357 S&W Magnum cartridge whose introduction began the "Magnum" era of handgun ammunition.
- The name 'Unkempt Harold' is just a classier way of saying 'Dirty Harry'.
