* Averted in ''VideoGame/HaloReach''. Only the first time you draw your weapon, be it a pistol, an assault rifle, or anything in between, does your character cock it. Every subsequent time, or until you drop the weapon and pick it up again, you'll simply heft it to its ready position; the most action you'll take is flipping the safety off if necessary.

Here comes the dramatic gun cock. The interrogator pulls back the hammer of the revolver or automatic, or racks the slide if the automatic has no hammer, then resumes pointing the gun to the subject's head. Usually, this is enough to thoroughly spook the subject into full disclosure. A pump-action shotgun may also be used for this purpose, often with a OneHandedShotgunPump, albeit it's overall not as popular as doing it with guns. Filmmakers who are aiming for dramatic effect over realism may even employ the dramatic gun cock with a gun that [[RayGun doesn't actually fire a projectile]].

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/ProjectZomboid'' will [[UnexpectedlyRealisticGameplay punish]] this trope if you opt for "Hardcore" reloading. One key ejects or inserts a magazine, while another works the action. Working the action while a round is already chambered will eject unspent rounds to the floor. Better not [[DamnYouMuscleMemory forget]] that you're using a semi-automatic pistol and not a pump shotgun.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheVentureBrothers'' parodies this in "The Devil's Grip". When surprised by rustling while camping out, Gary picks up a roughly gun-shaped branch as a bluff. Sgt. Hatred is not impressed, and proceeds to enlist Gary's help in rescuing Dr. Venture.
-->'''Gary:''' Yeah, I'm in. Let's bring him home. ''Chk-chk''.\\
'''Sgt. Hatred:''' Did you just cock your stick?\\
'''Gary:''' Yeah, whatever, I just—so what.
