Standard issue Xenonauts pistol. These and other types of pistols give a large bonus to a soldier's chance at reaction fire.
The ballistic pistol is a semi-automatic sidearm that has been in common military use for some years. It is light and accurate over short ranges, and also much faster to aim and fire than other Xenonaut weapons – making it an ideal secondary weapon for snipers or soldiers equipped with heavy weaponry. However, although it can deal out a lot of damage at close quarters due it its high fire rate, the pistol lacks any appreciable armour penetration and is inaccurate over range.
This is balanced against the fact it only takes a single hand to fire, allowing pistol-equipped soldier can carry a variety of objects in his other hand, such as grenades, medipacks or even a combat shield. It is therefore also an invaluable tool for soldiers in close support roles.

- Appears to be a Beretta M9, which is extremely anachronistic, as the M9 was designed in the mid-to-late eighties. A better choice would be it's predecessor, the Beretta 92SB.
