Description
As a former sicario, Sangres is careful when it comes to weapons of choice. The job must get done, there's no other option. Two trusty revolvers are always by his side - the Castigo .44 revolvers - that Sangres keeps in perfect condition.

The Akimbo Castigo .44 revolvers are Sangres' signature pistols and a primary weapon in PAYDAY 2.

OverviewEdit

Two Castigo .44 revolvers can be dual-wielded as the player's primary weapon. This greatly increases their damage output at the cost of impaired precision aiming, Stability reduction and quite obviously, the lack of a more capable primary.

All akimbo weapon modifications cost 40% more than their normal price.

SummaryEdit

Pros:

  • Very high damage, can kill most enemies in one click; easily shreds through any enemy, including SWAT Turrets
  • High Concealment
  • Twin guns provides a higher damage per second and rate-of-fire overall
  • Available early on
  • Higher ammo pickup than single revolvers
  • Compared to other akimbo weapons, aiming holds the guns much closer to the center of the screen

Cons:

  • Very high recoil; Akimbo's natural Stability reduction causes it to have a base Stability of 0
  • Slow reload
  • One trigger pull fires both guns, potentially leading to ammo wastage
  • Incredibly limited mod options
  • Expensive relative to unlock level
  • Slightly above-par accuracy
  • Takes up the primary slot

TipsEdit

  • As with the weapon's secondary counterpart, it is capable of reaching 204 damage with the help of the Fast and Furious perk and One Handed Talent Aced. Combined with Helmet Popping it will do enough damage to kill most enemies in a single shot to the head on Overkill, though aiming for headshots is difficult at range due to the inability to aim down the ironsights. However the incredible damage per second of this weapon allows it to be used to quickly kill Bulldozers at close range.
  • Taking Akimbo and/or Ambidexterity can help to control the strong recoil of this weapon.
  • As with all akimbo weapons, the ammunition capacity is deceptivly low as two bullets are fired per click, this means you essentially have only 6 shots.
  • Keep track of the number of rounds left in the cylinders, as the reload process is a somewhat slow 3.5 seconds.
    • Taking Desperado aced will speed up the slow reload time.
  • The high concealment of this weapon makes it viable for dodge builds or for as a plan B primary for stealth heists in Crime Spree.

SkinsEdit

  • The Monterrey revolvers were commissioned by a cartel boss to master gunsmith Pablo "El Gato" ("the cat"), but the boss was assassinated shortly before the revolvers were ready to deliver. Unpaid, he put the guns up for sale in his store window and for months they remained there as no one could afford them, but one day a retired policeman visited and offered to clean the city of crime in exchange for the guns, to which El Gato agreed. In the following weeks, the city's crime bosses fell one by one and following the death of the last boss, the policeman claimed the reward and drove away from the city, never seen by the gunsmith again.

TriviaEdit

  • Luckypunk

    Sangres' revolver case.

    The Castigo .44 is based on the Smith & Wesson Model 29, with a 6.5 inch barrel. The in-game iteration is an older model as evident by the lack of internal lock.
  • The name of the weapon "castigo" means "punishment" in Spanish.
  • Despite being exclusivly fired double action in game, the hammer is always cocked back as if it is being fired single action.
  • The Akimbo Castigo .44 is the first dual-wieldable revolver in PAYDAY 2. The Peacemaker .45, however, was seen dual-wielded by the Sheriff Cloaker in The Butcher's Western Pack's trailer but not usable akimbo in-game.
  • The Akimbo Castigo .44 can be seen in Sangres' room in the Safe House. At first, they are simply lying on a stack of boxes, but at tier 2 they are contained within an interactable weapon case.
