A Swiss SIG-Sauer 14mm handgun rechambered for 12.7mm ammunition, likely designed for long-range pistol hunting or target shooting. It was imported to the United States from the European Commonwealth before the war. They were decently common early on in the survivor era, but the number of working units has swiftly declined.
Big News is a unique variant of the 12.7mm pistol. It does greater damage, fires faster, has a greater chance of critical damage, has a lower AP cost, and is more accurate. The barrel is golden and it has a black wooden hand grip. While it is still weaker than the Li'l Devil by raw damage, it possesses a higher critical multiplier and critical damage than the previously mentioned. Like most unique weapons, modifications cannot be applied.
While drawing the gun the sound of turning on a radio will play, while holstering will trigger the sound of turning off a radio.
Big News can fire a total of about 595 standard rounds, the equivalent of 85 reloads, from full condition before breaking.
