Deadlier than a [[Beretta]]. It has a greater damage ratio, but this is compensated with a slower firing rate. It also cannot be used in dual mode. The Desert Eagle is one of the most powerful weapons in the [[Max Payne (game)|first game]]. It is useful for scoring headshots due to its decent accuracy. One thing to note is that the bullet always travels lower than where it is aimed, so when going for a headshot, aim around an inch above the head depending on distance. Headshots aside, it is a powerful weapon that can down any enemy fairly quickly.

In [[Max Payne 2]], the Desert Eagle becomes dramatically more useful, having a higher firing rate and boasting pinpoint accuracy even along extreme distances, making it a good substitute for a sniper rifle should neither the sniper rifle nor the [[MP5]] be present. In fact in many circumstances the Desert Eagle is preferable over the MP5 due to its higher damage. The Desert Eagle is dual-wieldable in ''Max Payne 2''. Dual-wielded Desert Eagles have one of the highest damage per second ratings in the game along with dual [[Ingram|Ingrams]] and the [[Striker]]; however, it comes at the price of some loss in accuracy. Desert Eagles are more suitable for clean headshots over a medium to long distance. The weapon can kill a weaker enemy with two shots.
