Hand Gun (ハンドガン handogan?) is weapon in Resident Evil 3: Nemesis. It is a gameplay representation of Jill's Samurai Edge in lore.


The Hand Gun starts as part of Jill Valentine's inventory on the Hard Mode. In Easy Mode, it is in the Item Box.

The weapon has a magazine capacity of 15 H. Gun Bullets. It is a preferred choice when fighting lesser enemies such as zombies and Zombie Dogs. However, due to the limited power of its bullets, it tends to be rather useless against stronger enemies such as the Hunters.

The gun is also able to chamber enhanced ammunition, which increases its firepower.

M92F Enhanced

"Enhanced M92F Custom. It is loaded with enhanced 9mm parabellum rounds."

The M92F Enhanced is created by loading H.G. Bullets E into the Hand Gun.

While the enhanced ammunition does not change the Hand Gun's appearance or its magazine capacity, the weapon has a noticeably different "boom" when firing.

In performance, the M92F gains stronger firepower. The gun also gains stronger recoil, but unlike the M3S Enhanced, it doesn't cause Jill to move back significantly.

With the Hand Gun's enhanced power, it often knocks back a zombie with one shot and requires less rounds to kill it. It is also now ideal for fighting stronger enemies, even Nemesis.

  • The bullet counter of this weapon in the inventory screen changes to red to denote that it is loaded with Enhanced Hand Gun Bullets. The ejected shells have a darker color as well.
  • When the Hand Gun is loaded with normal bullets, enhanced ammo cannot be uploaded until the weapon is empty. Combining the enhanced ammo with the weapon must be made in the status screen.
  • When the player wants to change the type of ammunition from enhanced to normal, he/she must follow the same rules.
