Semi-automatic pistol, fed from a detachable magazine. Made in tactical variant. Uses .45 ACP rounds. — In-game description


The FX-45 is a semi-automatic handgun chambered in .45 ACP. A rare military issue pistol, the FX-45 can only be found in military camps and is usually a late-game addition to a survivors arsenal.

Overview

In DayZ Standalone, the FX-45 is a medium-sized pistol based on the tactical variant of the FN FNX. A late-game defensive weapon, the FX-45 is chambered in .45 ACP which is fed from a 15-round detachable box magazine. The FX-45's .45 ACP cartridge provides the most stopping power of any of the pistol cartridges, packing a serious punch. The trade-off, however, is a slightly stronger recoil when fired. Even with the slightly stronger recoil, the increased firepower, 15 round magazine capacity and variety of attachments still make the FX-45 the primary choice for a defensive weapon among survivors.

Fully Customized FX-45


A high-end military-issue firearm, the FX-45 includes an integrated Picatinny rail; allowing for an attached Pistol Flashlight and allows for an attached Pistol Suppressor. The addition of a Pistol Suppressor makes the FX-45 near inaudible.

Like most pistols, the FX-45 is best used as a close range defensive weapon. The light-weight tactical design gives the FX-45 one of the highest dexterity values, allowing it to be swung left and right rapidly while raised, in DayZ Standalone. With its stopping power, magazine capacity and high dexterity, the FX-45 can be an extremely effective weapon in close quarters combat. This effectiveness quickly evaporates, however, as distance between the user and the target increases. Although the .45 ACP cartridge provides the FX-45 with admirable stopping power, the poor accuracy of pistols beyond 50m means that switching to another firearm is almost always a better option.

  • Before 1.0, the FX-45 was named the FNX45.
