Alien Pistol is a weapon in Saints Row IV.

A hefty punch in a small package.
— Weapon Description[1]

OverviewEdit

The Z9 Handcannon is the only costume for the Alien Pistol

Damage, Overheat Level, Rate of Fire and Recoil can all be upgraded 5 levels each, with a separate Cool Kills "ultimate upgrade".[2]

The Alien Pistol performs similar to the Heavy Pistol, as both Pistols have superior damage over the Quickshot Pistol in exchange for a slower rate of fire, which makes ammo conservation much more manageable. The main differences between the 3 Pistols is that the Alien Pistol does not use magazines and can overheat instead. With the Cool Kills upgrade, the Alien Pistol is less likely to overheat and allows the player to continue fighting for extended periods of time.

AvailabilityEdit

  • Zin soldiers at low notoriety levels often equip the Z9.

AnalysisEdit

Pros
  • No reload required
  • Takes a while to overheat and can be cooled down even if it hasn't overheated.
  • Ultimate Upgrade helps to keep weapon from overheating
  • Consumes ammo at a slower rate than the Quickshot Pistol
Cons
  • Slower rate of fire than the Quickshot Pistol
  • Heavy recoil without Recoil upgrades
