As part of our May 2019 STEADFAST RANGER v1.48  update, we've added a new tool: the Revolver.
The Revolver is a short range, defensive tool. It can hold 6 rounds, takes longer to reload than the Rifle, and generally does less damage.
As a defensive weapon, Wolves are more likely to flee from the Revolver than from other weapons when fired. The Revolver has a lower incidence of jamming than the Rifle.

The survivor is able to fire the Revolver from two modes: by Aiming, or using Hip Fire.
When aiming regularly with the Revolver, the survivor can crouch and stand, but is otherwise locked into place - they cannot walk, or sprint.
Aiming with the Revolver. Note the "no movement" icon displayed in the lower right corner.
The survivor can also fire the Revolver without pausing to aim. This allows the survivor to fire rapidly, but with low accuracy.

Survivors with a Revolver in their inventory will be able to select the Revolver from the Struggle weapon picker when being attacked by a Wolf. If the survivor has Revolver ammunition in their inventory during a Struggle, they are also able to try and shoot the wolf with the new "Take Shot!" option during more successful struggles.
During more successful Wolf struggles, a survivor equipped with a Revolver and Revolver Ammo will have the ability to take a shot.
Ammo for the Revolver can be found scattered throughout the world as single rounds, and in boxes of 10.
