Steady and reliable, the Vasto revolver combines speed and power for a classic gunslinger feel.

The Vasto is a powerful and effective sidearm that strikes a balance between the Lato and the Lex. Whilst it has less base damage than the Lex, it is exceedingly accurate, and features a rate of fire on par with the Lato. It also has a high crit rate.

High materials cost, low ammo capacity, and moderate recoil stand out as its major weak points.

This weapon can be sold for Credits645,000, it is also a requisite ingredient for Akvasto (x2) and Redeemer.

Weapon LoadoutsEdit

TipsEdit

  • Due to the semi-auto nature of the Vasto, for longer ranged targets fire more slowly, as the recoil will fire bullets higher the faster you pull the trigger.
  • When focusing on a build based on speed (Fire rate and reload speed) you can run out of ammo quickly. On defense this isn't much of a problem as pistol ammo pickups are more clustered and easier to replenish your ammo, but for other missions consider taking a pistol ammo box along just in case.
  • Consider using a mod slot to fit a high-level Pistol Gambit - this can bring the crit chance up to around 30%. Combined with the weapon's high rate of fire, it can easily tear through tougher opponents.
  • The recoil can be decreased by the Steady Hands mod, making this a more viable long-range weapon.
  • The Vasto has a high chance of cutting corpses into pieces, similar to Slash b Slash-focused melee weapons. This makes the Vasto a prime candidate for a Desecrating Nekros to bring along, as the game considers the cut corpses as separate entities, essentially giving multiple corpses to desecrate from a single enemy and thus yielding more chances to create more drops.

NotesEdit

  • The Vasto was added in Update 9.3.
  • Although shown as being mostly silver colored, the pistol's default color is actually black.

TriviaEdit

  • Vasto is a Latin verb, meaning "I destroy / I lay waste / I ravage."
  • The Vasto's cylinder revolves with every shot and upon reload, making it the fourth weapon with a non-static model.
  • The Vasto appears to be a double-action revolver of intermediate caliber, rather than a high caliber single action akin to those used in the 19th century West, like the Colt Single Action Army. The handle/grip is flush with the rest of the weapon, leaving no exposed hammer to manually cock. However, there appears to be a rocker on the rear of the Vasto that could be a hammer lever.
    • Unlike real revolvers, however, the Vasto ejects cartridges after each shot.
  • Thanks to its high Slash b Slash damage, the Vasto has a high chance of cutting corpses into pieces.

    • A single forma essentially negates the advantage of a single vasto though. And dual vastos have less recoil ironically.
