The Desert Eagle is the best handgun that can be used in The Getaway: Black Monday. It is a pretty rare gun to find, but when found it deals a great amount of damage to enemies at both long and close range. Members of the Thieves in Law use this gun as well as members of the Yardies, including Tyler. Even Viktor himself shoots at Eddie with two of these in the final mission. It is a large-framed gas-operated semi-automatic pistol designed by Magnum Research in the U.S. and manufactured primarily in Israel by IMI (Israel Military Industries, now Israel Weapon Industries). Manufacturing was moved to Saco Defense in the state of Maine from 1996 to 2000 which carried the XIX designation, but shifted back to Israel when Saco was acquired by General Dynamics. The Desert Eagle has been featured in roughly 500 motion pictures and TV films, considerably increasing it's popularity and boosting sales. A full clip is 9 rounds, which would make it a .357 caliber handgun, not a .50 AE.
