Max Payne 3 Trailer Introduces Us to the 1911 Pistol

Posted on April 27, 2012 AT 06:45am

THE BUZZ: Rockstar has released another weapon based trailer for Max Payne 3, this one looking at the 1911 pistol.

EGM’s TAKE: There’s actually been a lot more anger over this trailer than expected. In it the narrator names the 1911 as Max’s favorite gun, however in previous games he’s never even used one, his weapon of choice was the M9. Obviously Rockstar knows its own character, and there are a few explanations. First the M9 and 1911 are basically the same type of gun. Another is that Max was always forced to use the M9, as it was police issue, now he can actually pick his own gun so the 1911 may actually be his favorite. This just goes to show that you don’t mess with hardcore fans, because they know every little detail and will jump on anything that doesn’t make sense.

Which weapon will you be using most in the game? Let us know in the comments below.
