The Red Hand is a unique Weapon in Pillars of Eternity 2.


The young brigand who once wielded this arquebus had not intended to become a murderer. Those he threatened down the twin barrels had a simple choice. All they had to do was hand over their valuables and go on their way. The gun was intimidating enough. No one was supposed to get hurt. When an old aumaua priest decided to fight back, the brigand acted on instinct and pulled the trigger. It took two shots to put the fool down.


The killing got easier after that. In fact, it became the rule rather than the exception. Searching corpses was simpler than robbery and just as lucrative. He kept the gun with him at all times, even while he slept. His dreams were filled with a morbid parade of those he had killed. Over the years he found his heart hardened. He could feel nothing, not even regret. Unable to reconcile the young man he had been with the jaded monster he had become, the brigand - numb and resigned - used the gun to take his own life.
