4. Cattleman


Price: $50
Unlock level: You’ll be given a Cattleman during the prologue

4% of players rely on this revolver. It deals slightly higher damage than the Double-Action revolver. It’s a fairly okay revolver for PvE but you shouldn’t compete in PvP matches wielding one or a couple of these. If you choose to use the Cattleman revolver, you should always dual wield. The reload time becomes relatively low when you dual wield.


  • Damage - 30.9
  • Fire rate - 0.43s (single), 0.35s (dual-wield)

3. Schofield

Ebony and Ivory!

Unlock level: 9

The Schofield gets 12% votes on average. It deals a moderate amount of damage. Its rate of fire and reload speed are slower than the Cattleman.

2. LeMat


Price: $317
Unlock level: 1

The LeMat is an extremely versatile revolver even though it got 24% votes on average. Both the LeMat and the Navy revolver deserve the top rank on this list. The best part about this gun is that it has an under-barrel shotgun attachment. It has the slowest reload time but the increased ammo capacity makes up for it. It holds 9 bullets whereas other revolvers only hold 6. Even if you run out of bullets, you can always use shotgun shells that the under-barrel attachment holds. It can only hold one shell at a time. It’s good for both PvP and PvE but we recommend you use it, especially for PvE.


  • Damage - 38.8
  • Fire rate - 0.62s (single), 0.40s (dual-wield)
  • Reload time - 6s (single), 10.70 (dual-wield)

1. Navy revolver

A capitan!

Unlock level: 1

Well, The community announces this beast as the top revolver in RDO. So, how can we not put this in the number one position? It earns about 58% of votes on average.
