The HVM 001 pistol is the weakest non Z-Arm Tech weapon, manufactured by HVM, in SAS: Zombie Assault 4. It is the only non-Z-Arm Tech starter weapon. It is the weakest pistol in the game and is normally sold out for any other pistol. It also struggles with the penalties of a normal pistol, being the how much damage it does and the damage type. It also has 1 pierce and normally doesn't stand a chance when crowds or shielders come.
The HVM 001 is considered the weakest pistol by many players, as the version deals less damage than the standard Ronson 45 or CM 225. Its usefulness only last a few starting levels or maybe a few later levels if wisely augmented.
This gun has decent accuracy with relatively cheap ammo. The version of this gun is also nice when you are about level 15.
If you choose to use this pistol, recommended augments would be the following:
Deadly: The most useful augment for this gun, making it kill faster.
Capacity/Race Modded: The capacity is nice, though having it with a huge clip with the fast reload will make it more effective in pinches. Having an almost instant reload would also help in those pinches that you need a weapon for a quick kill.
Adaptive/Piercing: Adaptive will help a lot for shielders and Chitinous Hide zombies, and will make it overall better then most augments for the gun. Piercing will make it better for crowd control, though it is normally a waste.
HVM 001 is a futuristic pistol that features its magazine placed under the barrel kinda like Mauser C96, an integrated flashlight / laser pointer, a slightly large muzzle for a pistol, and an unused top rail.
