Dual-wielding is the ability to handle two single-handed weapons at the same time. It enables to inflict more damage at the cost of more rapidly spent ammunition and longer reloading times.
Max Payne 2Edit
The second game, alongside the Berretas and Ingrams, introduces the ability to dual wield two Desert Eagles. Although these more potent handguns were also featured in the first game, Max Payne could only hold one of them.
Max Payne 3Edit
Max Payne 3 improves the ability of dual-wielding: now, not only two identical but any two single-handed weapons will be possible to dual wield. However, doing it while carrying a two handed weapon will auto-drop that weapon.
The player can also dual-wields any two single handed weapons in multiplayer.
Use by enemiesEdit
In addition to Max Payne, some of his adversaries carry two weapons in both hands as well:
