The Weapons of Max Payne 3: 1911 Semi-Automatic Pistol (New Video, Screens & 360-Degree Renders)

Posted on April 26 2012, 11:55am | Author: R* Q | Filed Under: Games

An American classic, the 1911 semi-automatic pistol is one of the most versatile weapons in Max Payne's arsenal. Max is able to dual wield this reliable and hard-hitting .45 handgun, keeping him as lethal and agile as possible.

Extremely light-weight, yet packing enough force to punch holes in any enemy brazen enough to cross Max's path - grabbing a couple of these as you dash and Shootdodge™ through crossfire will make you a dangerous target.

Explore the video above to see the raw power, impressive range and precise accuracy of the 1911 in action, along with detailed 360-degree renders that show off all of its individually modeled components and a selection of all-new screenshots.

*updated to reflect a correction from the earlier version of the video - Max's original go-to dual wielding pistols were of course the Berettas. We apologize for the error and thanks to all the fans (and our lead designer) who caught this in the original video!

        @di0nislaw Oh right! What was I thinking haha.
        Anyway, the blurry pic makes it look like some bloody mess, it doesn't even look like a bandana anymore. And notice that his head looks like it is being wrapped with a plastic bag.
        I think it's best to wait until the game comes out. Crazy and distubed things happens inside the Max Payne universe everyday.

                    Nice, the dual-wielding of pistols has always been a trademark of Max Payne, can't wait to keep the tradition up by shoot-dodging and shooting some guys with dual pistols when playing Max Payne 3!

                      lol, bet the off-topic guys were talking about GTA V
