The Schofield Pistol is Serious Sam's trusty sidearm. It's used because it never jams, is reliable and Sam magically always has ammo for it.
The Schofield Pistol is picked up at the very start of The Temple of Herkat Upper, the first level in the game.
- The Schofield Pistol is borderline worthless; it does a low amount of damage per hit, and the player needs to be close to the target in order for it to hit a target. The only real advantage is that it can be fired somewhat quickly by holding down the fire button. Stop using it as soon as a better weapon is found.
- Strafing with this weapon is essential because it's short range forces the player to get close to the target which puts the player at risk of being hit by an enemy's attacks.
