Tips

Regular Damage – Regular Damage. Good for unarmored targets (100% damage), but totally useless for armored (0%). This type of damage is common among pistols (5 of 15).

Energy Damage – Energy Damage. Good for unarmored targets (100% damage) and useful for armored (50%). This type of damage is also common for pistols (7 of 15).

Incendiary Damage – Incendiary Damage. Excellent for unarmored targets (130% damage), but totally useless for armored (0%). This type of damage have only two Dragon pistols. No need to waste Skill Points on improvement of its first version, because by the time the Dragon-1 appears, everywhere are a lot of armored enemies, against which it is useless.

Acid Damage – Acid Damage. Good for unarmored targets (100% damage) and just brilliant for armored (130%). This type of damage also has only one pistol (Acid). The most versatile and definitely “must have pistol” at the first part of the game! However, almost the very slow fire-rate of all.

Notes:

The DPS also known as Damage per Second (and not Damage per Shot) formula credits are entirely for ScaryCherry.

The DPS value takes into account the Reload Time.

The Improvement value is  just a straight calculation that compares damage from previous and next pistols.

All the calculations are not taking into account any researching from Reconnaissance Center, Critical Shot update or additional damage from acid or incendiary post-effect.
