Improved Pistol III is a Foundry project in XCOM: Enemy Unknown.

In-Game Description[]

Having learned a great deal from the alien weapons recovered from the field, we think it should be possible to implement improvements across our entire range of side arms. At the very least, we can expect an increase in the maximum damage output of all our pistols.
