The Desert Eagle has limited appearances in the campaign. It is the starting weapon for two chapters, and it is low on ammo in both these chapters. In later chapters, elite 33rd soldiers will use Desert Eagles, as well as Zulu Squad snipers. It will also appear as a secondary weapon during the epilogue.
It is unlocked at Level 35.
- In real life, The Desert Eagle is considered to be impractical for combat by military soldiers, but has been featured in numerous films and video games (ex. Call of Duty) and as a favored weapon by various action heroes. As such, Walker's use of the weapon can be seen as a reflection of both his desire to be a glorious hero and his incresingly violent behavior later on in the story.
