Tactical Information

  • Having the Rounds Reload trait, you can keep the cylinder topped off without wasting ammo.
  • When no rounds are left in the cylinder a speedloader will be used which drastically reduces reload time so if you have a few rounds left in the chamber it is better to fire them all off then reload.
  • Due to the small amount of rounds in the cylinder, it's important to take some time to aim and make your shots count.
  • The One Handed trait means that the Senator can be used while holding items like the SSSD Hard Drive or while using the Ballistic Shield, and it will be automatically equipped in these cases if no other weapons with One Handed are equipped.



  • The Senator can destroy a Supply Hellpod in 2 shots
  • Your Helldiver will spin the revolver if the reload button is held.
