Ask any Counter-Strike aficionado what the most important round in a match is and they will surely tell you - the Eco-round. Often the economy boost that you get from winning an eco-round can mean winning the next two rounds as well. But with limited resources at your disposal, rifles are usually not an option so deciding what to do in such a situation is a difficult task. Buying the right pistols during an Eco-round can help turn the tide of a match that may be slipping out of your team's hands. Here is a list of all the pistols currently available in CS:GO. Rank them from best to worst taking into account the effectiveness and price of the pistols!

The Desert Eagle, commonly nicknamed "Deagle" or "Hand Cannon", is a powerful semi-automatic pistol for highly skilled players. It is available to both teams. It is loaded with 7 rounds of .50 Action Express which makes it able to inflict high amounts of damage. The Desert Eagle is usually one of the most popular and widely used sidearms in the Counter-Strike games. Currently, in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, it costs $700 as opposed to $650 for the previous versions. The Desert Eagle is the only weapon in the pistol class with high penetration, making it possible to score double kills in one shot if opponents are lined up. The movement speed of this weapon is 250 units per second, meaning users will not suffer any speed reduction. However, in Global Offensive, it has a movement speed of 230 units per second, which is a moderate speed reduction. As such, the Desert Eagle has the second slowest movement speed of all pistols, with a faster movement speed over the R8 Revolver. Advantages: - High damage pistol - High penetration - High accuracy at long range (compared to its counterparts) in CS:GO - High DPS (damage per second) due to its instant kill from a headshot even if a helmet is worn by the target Disadvantages: - Small magazine size compared to other pistols - Low rate of fire - High spread and recoil - The second heaviest pistol in Global Offensive (beaten by R8 Revolver) The most expensive pistol in Global Offensive (tied with the R8 Revolver at $700) - Damage noticeably drops off at long range
