* Guns in the hands of Gunners in TacticsOgre have a range of "So long as there's nothing between me and my target," regardless of whether you're using a pistol or a rifle - using one doesn't even highlight the target range, as is done with all other attacks. In the hands of non-gunners, [[ShortRangeLongRangeWeapon they're mere bludgeons]]. * FinalFantasyTactics: Guns (all of which are magic pistols) have a range of 8 squares (bows have 5) and can do elemental damage. Although they are only usuable by a few classes, they basically make you a sniper wizard. * In FinalFantasyTacticsAdvance and FinalFantasyTacticsA2, guns have huge range compared to any other weapon (save [[DeathDealer magical cards]]). Much like in [[FinalFantasyTactics FFT]], there are abilities that allow you to deal elemental damage and cause some [[StandardStatusEffects effects]] like Stop and Charm... and some abilities use the range of the weapon, allowing you to combine the range of guns with - say - ''Ultima Charge'' to turn your humble gun into a [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot sniper magic bazooka gun]].

* From [[MotherRussiaMakesYouStrong Mother Russia]] hails [=RSh=]-12,7, which ''actually fires a sniper rifle round'' - the [[HandCannon 12.7x55 mm]] for the [[HollywoodSilencer VKSS Vyklop]], and is a [[RevolversAreJustBetter Revolver]] to boot. The GunAccessories make it a good approximation of the page image - it can be fitted with a stock, a silencer, and has Picatinny rails for everything else.

It is not, however, actually a sniper pistol it was explicitly designed as a HandCannon for a [[DynamicEntry forced entry situations]], for the off case when the entrenched bad guys have something more than the simple body armor, or managed to find an armored car or such ''somewhere''.

** ''Warframe'' also has the Seer, a ''literal'' Sniper Pistol thanks to Vor adding in a custom zoom function. That said, the Seer's bullets aren't HitScan.

* ''VideoGame/{{Warframe}}'' has the Seer, a ''literal'' Sniper Pistol thanks to Vor adding in a custom zoom function. The Seer's bullets aren't HitScan, though; a more traditional example would be the [[HandCannon Lex]].

** The humble 45T pistol can shoot as far as the P417 rifle despite being listed with a range shorter than a shotgun.

In RealLife, accurately shooting a handgun, regardless which type of scope is used, is [[DontTryThisAtHome incredibly difficult]] and takes a lot of training to master, much more compared to a rifle or carbine. See also ImprobableAimingSkills.

* ''VideoGame/HaloCombatEvolved'', the pistol was very powerful for a pistol, leading to many complaints, and the pistol being nerfed in the sequels (although it was subsequently restored in Halo 4). In universe, it made perfect sense for the pistol in the first game to be as powerful as it was, since it was loaded with bullets that exploded upon impact and had a zoom scope attached to it. It wasn't so much an overpowered gun, as it was a very small tactical rifle, making [[ItMakesSenseInContext perfect sense]] in the game's sci-fi setting. It only bothered players because it was a pistol, and well, [[GunsDoNotWorkThatWay pistols don't do that]]. The sequels replaced with a battle rifle that did pretty much the exact same amount of damage and had the same scope, and nobody complained.
