"A handgun with high accuracy. It uses 9mm parabellum rounds."
— Item description
The Handgun HP (ハンドガンHP handogan HP ) is a weapon that appears in Resident Evil Outbreak File #2. It was meant to appear at some point in the first Outbreak, but it was removed from the game and added to its expansion. The surviving Outbreak icon is seen on the Infobox.
The Handgun HP is found in the Desperate Times scenario as the standard weapon, and it is also found in certain minigames, depending on the difficulty.
Boasting great accuracy, the Handgun HP is slightly more powerful than the standard handgun, but it carries only 13 rounds, identical to the more powerful HANDGUN SG. It uses special HP Magazines, different from standard Handgun Magazines.
- Kevin Ryman's Potshot ability comes in handy with this gun.
- This handgun deals 150 HP of damage with each shot at any range as opposed to other handguns, which could lose as much as 50% of their stopping power at longer distances. This makes the HP handgun the weapon of choice for veteran players during the zombies siege of Desperate Times and the Elimination modes it appears on.
