How Strong is the Revolver in Sons of the Forest?

Where to Find Ammo for the Revolver in Sons of the Forest
9mm ammo is extremely common in Sons of the Forest.
Thankfully, in Sons of the Forest, the revolver shares ammo with the pistol. Both use 9mm bullets that are extremely easy to find and are scattered all around the map. They are especially easy to find near security/military camps, inside briefcases, or nearby deceased soldiers.
The revolver only holds six bullets, so it is essential to be careful with your shots to prevent reloading during an uncomfortable situation.
Even though 9mm ammo is standard, remember that this is a survival game where managing resources and ammunition plays a key role. You must constantly look for valuable materials, ammo, and food.
Always be mindful and balance your offensive and defensive capabilities so that you don’t run out of resources in the middle of dangerous situations.
Can the Revolver Use Attachments?
The Revolver is the only gun in the game that doesn’t take any attachments.
Unfortunately, the Revolver can’t be used with any attachments, but it doesn’t need them. This gun is powerful by itself; however, having the ability to attach a laser sight or flashlight would be a great addition.
Remember that the game is still in early access, so the developers might add attachments for this weapon or, who knows, even a more powerful gun.
