Acid Pistol

The Acid is one of the many Pistols in the Evolution: Battle for Utopia game.

My scientists have studied the remains of the creature called Overlord and constructed an acid-shooting pistol. Its bullets can erode the strongest armor!

It`s the Overlord, the most hideous creature on Utopia!


I would add that among all the life forms we ever met here this is one of the most both difficult and interesting for the research.

We are facing a creature with the unique physiology being able to produce dangerous parasites at an amazing rate and then to control them!

Figuratively speaking, the Overlord use the parasites as its soldiers being itself a kind of headquarters and the army training center at the same time.

There is nothing equal on Earth. We are dealing with the evolution peak of similar biological systems.


Now this creature being so unique, maybe we can make a profit of studying it.


I`ve carried out a visual study and got promising preliminary results.

I think when I`m through, we`ll be able to use the study data for the creation of a pioneering organic acid-shooting weapon.

    Is this pistols damage the same as regular pistol’s damage? Or 28 of acid damage is more than 28 of regular damage?

    • avatar s_e_s_h ( Lieutenant General Lieutenant General Player's Rank 527 ) Admin

      Damage from the single hit is the same!

      • avatar HelloShitty ( Lieutenant Colonel Lieutenant Colonel Player's Rank 294 )

        So what is the advantage of having such a pistol (or any other like Dragon, for example) if the damage is the same and they are way more expensive?

      • avatar s_e_s_h ( Lieutenant General Lieutenant General Player's Rank 527 ) Admin

        The advantage is in the delayed extra damage for Armored targets

        Other advantages also maybe in fire-rate and/or reload speed and ultimately in total dealing damage (in a minute)

        But not in this case – the Acid Pistol is very slow by all terms

      • avatar HelloShitty ( Lieutenant Colonel Lieutenant Colonel Player's Rank 294 )

        Sorry to reply here but I don’t know if it’s possible to send you a private message.

        I have made a video fighting Maximus turret Boss in Black Legion Base. If I send you the video (youtube), can it be posted in the Maximus Boss Walthrough??? As the other that is already there?

      • avatar Гудвин ( Captain Captain Player's Rank 198 )

        Too bad that you don’t read your e-mail )

  2. avatar Raladur ( Private Private Player's Rank 4 )

    ONLY good reason is the fact that it can attack armored targets for full (actually 130%) damage, whereas bulldog and “normal” pistols cannot damage armored targets at all exept for aimed shots.

    that makes it great for taking out turrets and armored enemies, and a must have weapon for early game. equip it for fights against turrets, and when i know armored target is coming in next battle

  3. avatar HelloShitty ( Lieutenant Colonel Lieutenant Colonel Player's Rank 294 )

    But also in early stages of the game it’s not easy to get crystallite to fully upgrade the acid pistol

    • avatar Raladur ( Private Private Player's Rank 4 )

      suprisingly.. i have made enough to max the damage and have 3/5 ammo upgrades in less than 24 hours… just need to pick crystal as mission rewards and hack the dominators…
      i am level 14 atm…. did most of the farming at 13 though– level 13 only “armored” enemy from the terror missions is L4 terror shield guy. i could clear all of them out without using single healing and for most part only with pistol.

      • avatar HelloShitty ( Lieutenant Colonel Lieutenant Colonel Player's Rank 294 )

        I’ve also fully upgraded already 2 weapons. Buldog Pistol that I used a lot and also Storm AR which is the most powerful weapon I have so far. I’m now upgrading Dragon Pistol (already did the 1st upgrade till max damage) and I’m doing now the critical chance after have done 1 upgrade to have 8 shots in a row. After I have completed critical damage I’ll finish the magazine upgrade. But it’s also hard to get the skill points.

      • avatar HelloShitty ( Lieutenant Colonel Lieutenant Colonel Player's Rank 294 )

        Ok, I’ve just finished to fully upgrade my Acid Pistol but I still can’t take down Hydras using it and U2 medpacks and G2-Frags… I think I need a lot more of practice!

        Or better, I can take them down, the problem is the rest of the units that comes along after the turret!

      • avatar Гудвин ( Captain Captain Player's Rank 198 )

        I’ve answered your other comment. Also, are you planning to take Rico? He might be usefull against armored enemies.

  4. avatar HelloShitty ( Lieutenant Colonel Lieutenant Colonel Player's Rank 294 )

    I’ve not researched Rico yet! I was trying to make some stock of resources to finishing to build my 6 Black Hydras and I was trying to keep me as low level as I can until they are all built (only 2 Black Hydras are missing).

    I also have enough skill points to research Maximus turrets but those will be built later because I think my Storage Depot is not still big enough to build Maximus Turrets (missing a few hours to finish researching level 10 of Storage Depot).

    • avatar Гудвин ( Captain Captain Player's Rank 198 )

      Well, it’s your choice what turret to use in defense )
      Many people think that turrets helps attacking player to prepair for the final commandor coming out.

      What about me, I have only 5 Hephestus and 1 Hydra.
      And, having a Moloh machine gun, I see that my demage in defense is about equal when opponent meets my Hydra, or when he meets me from the start oh the battle.

      I’m planning to build Black Hydras and I think it’ll be enouth. Maximus is a very powerfull turret, but it has a weackness to born three bombers after death.
      I use this moment to wait for all my abilities to be ready and enemy’s Commandor usually has no chances.
      I think Black Hydra is much better in this way.

      • avatar HelloShitty ( Lieutenant Colonel Lieutenant Colonel Player's Rank 294 )

        I think I didn’t understood what weaknesses you said Maximus turrets has!

        And you think that Black Hydras are enough until, let’s say, from here to (not until the very end) a long time forward in the game ?

      • avatar Гудвин ( Captain Captain Player's Rank 198 )

        I’ll answer you in the PVP theme, OK?

  5. avatar HelloShitty ( Lieutenant Colonel Lieutenant Colonel Player's Rank 294 )

    Sure! Let me look where’s PvP theme! :)

  6. avatar hello93 ( Staff Sergeant Staff Sergeant Player's Rank 38 )

    It will be more logics if acid pistol is created by bomber queen !

  7. avatar François caline ( Private Private Player's Rank 3 )

    Ou peut on trouver le pistolet acide dans quelle zone car j ai un fusil à pompe acide en attente de trouver le pistolet acide

    • avatar SunSidTDM ( Lieutenant-Commander Lieutenant-Commander Player's Rank 166 )

      Il faut tuer le Maitre (overlord) en face à face quand il attaque ta base, il ne faut surtout pas utiliser le missile phénix.

  8. avatar Percy ( Private First Class Private First Class Player's Rank 8 )

    Cool gun, used it and it’s amazing! It’s a one of its kind pistol,
    Again you can use the acid shotgun and acid MG, but it’s better to use acid pistol because you can get it easily by defeating/nuking it

  9. avatar Salvator ( Sergeant Sergeant Player's Rank 24 )

    Another must have weapon. Do not throw it away until you get UFO

  10. avatar Shawn ( Private Private Player's Rank 1 )

    Does anyone know how to get the acid pistol?
    For some reason I have the acid shotgun and it says I can’t research it until I get the acid pistol, but I haven’t been able to get that pistol for some reason.

    • avatar Domi ( Private First Class Private First Class Player's Rank 10 )

      The Only way to get the acid pistol research is by killing the Overlord boss which sometimes appears at your base, if you kill it in face to face combat (not with a missile) you will be awarded the acid pistol research

    SAMz, of course, coz Оverlord will come back
