In many ways, the B3 Wingman is the RE-45 Autopistol's polar opposite. It is very capable at long-range, but sacrifices short-range capabilities for that. It has high damage, and requires precision aiming as opposed to firing rapidly at short range.
The B3 Wingman is noticeably stronger than the other sidearms. This sidearm deals a lot of damage and has great accuracy and incredible range. The only weaknesses to this weapon are its small magazine and slower rate of fire. Consider equipping this sidearm when carrying a short-range primary weapon like a submachine gun or shotgun—you’ll appreciate the range and accuracy of the Wingman even more.
The B3 Wingman only takes two shots to the body or one to head to kill an enemy Pilot. The other sidearms take at least four shots to the body or three to the head. If you can become accurate with this weapon, it is a beastly sidearm. Use this weapon only if your primary is running low or out of ammo. It’s a great one to catch a Pilot off guard in close quarters.
Against enemy minions this weapon is powerful, but gives away your position on the minimap. Keep your distance and pick off the minions at a longer range. All minions can be killed with a single shot, but you’ll need to aim for the head to one-shot a Spectre.
The B3 Wingman returns as a Pilot double-action revolver in Titanfall 2. It retains its stopping power, with increased ammunition capacity of 8 when extended mags are equipped.
The B3 Wingman Elite was added to the game in the Angel City's Most Wanted DLC. It is described as a high caliber revolver with a custom ergonomic grip to mitigate heavy recoil in heavy-G to low-G environments. It has been outfitted with a match trigger group bringing its pull weight down to 1.5 lbs. Other modifications are a black parkerized finish, forward rail plates, and a rear mounted Iron-Dot reflex sight.
The Wingman has very long range in its listed stats, outright surpassing the R-101C Carbine in that area.
Earlier in development, the Wingman held 8 rounds. This was likely changed for balance reasons.
It has a rather bizarre reload that can best be described as the revolver taking itself apart to reload. Not only does it involve the replacement of the entire hexagonal cylinders, but the entire front end of the weapon appears to slide forwards and the top rail moves vertically upward.
