"If this triple-barreled revolver's materials weren't fully infused with Chi, firing it would tear your arm off. It's not exactly civilized. But then again, neither are you."
—In-game description.

The Triad is a revolver appearing in Shadow Warrior 2.

Overview[edit | edit source]

A reward for the first part of side mission Flirty Fishing. The weapon bonus increases fire rate by 25% for 10s on weakspot kill.

Usage[edit | edit source]

This revolver exemplifies the archetype of hand cannon. It`s base damage per shot is already quite respectable, and it can be boosted to ridiculous extremes by taking advantage of a tri-barreled nature of this revolver and equipping a mod that discharges all three at once. Doing so will make fire rate very sluggish, but in the same time give this sidearm a one-shot damage capacity on par with gauss rifles and shotguns.

Good pick for players with good aim and reflexes, but it does require a playstyle where each bullet counts.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The name references to the first person shooter Rise of the Triad.
  • Upon switching to The Triad from another weapon, it briefly emits a sound of teleporter from Quake I.
