The D50 is a handgun that appears in Far Cry 3.

Far Cry 3

"This hand cannon gives unmatched short-range power and can be used while on a Zipline. Strong hands are needed to deal with its massive recoil."

In-Game Handbook
Far Cry 3

"Hollywood made the D50 famous, and tucked into a shipment of pirated DVDs, it’s arrived at Rook Island. When it comes to large pistols, few handguns top this monstrosity. Its massive .50AE round is more than capable of bringing down large animals, humans and even honey badgers. Nearly all D50s on Rook Island were brought here by privateers."

Survival Guide
Far Cry 3

It is based upon the IMI Desert Eagle. The Desert Eagle is widely known for being a powerful mass-produced semi-automatic handgun. It has the highest damage stat of any handgun in the game.

This weapon becomes free after deactivating 12 Radio Towers. Since there are just 11 Radio Towers in North Rook Island, it can only be unlocked after reaching South Rook Island, specifically, after completing the mission Fly South, which would also make it available for purchase at the shops.


The D50 is without rival the strongest handgun in the game. Unlike the .44 Magnum, the D50 sports a larger magazine, and a much faster reload time. While the D50 is more powerful, the .44 is more accurate. The D50 is recommended for those who need something big taken down quickly, and is much more adept at killing larger game and enemies, being able to kill an Asian Black Bear in four shots to the body, and one clean headshot will neutralize a rushing Buffalo. It can accept a magazine upgrade and optical attachments helping make target acquisition easier.


The D50 in Far Cry 3 can be fitted with several sights and an extended magazine, increasing the capacity from eight rounds to ten, but can not be fitted with a suppressor.

Paint Jobs

The look of D50 can be customized with one of six available paint schemes. Each scheme costs $200 and does not affect weapon performance.



  • Although the D50 is very powerful, it should only be used at close range since firing any further will render it almost useless unless a sight is attached.
  • If the player has the Gunslinger Takedown skill, they will stab the enemy and pull out a D50 from their holster regardless of what the enemy has.
  • The D50 is ideal for clearing out squads of enemies, as most of them will be unarmored and can be killed with one shot.
