- Increases pistol Aim by 10%. Upgrade applies to all pistols.
- This upgrade is bugged. The bonus is overridden by the soldier's primary weapon. It only works properly for Covert Operatives.
- Formerly glitched in vanilla EU, this has been fixed in Enemy Within-- in which case, you may want to get this by the time EXALT shows up, so your pistol-wielding Operative can benefit from it.
- Improved Pistol II schematic shows an optical sight added to the pistol; but there is no visible scope mounted to any of the pistols.
