A member of the CS dual-wielding

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 PayneEdit

Max Payne allows the protagonist to dual-wield two Berretas and two Ingrams.

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

Wielding a revolver and a silenced pistol

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.

Also Max can dual-wield two Sawn-Off shotguns only in chapter seven.

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:
