The Vulture in Modern Combat 2: Black Pegasus is not a different pistol than the Desert Eagle. Rather, when players are on the Resistance team, the Desert eagle gains a new paint scheme, consisting of a blue and black Digital-type camouflage and a black barrel, as well as a set of blue-tinted iron sights. These changes are merely cosmetic, and have no effect on the pistol's stats.

The Vulture is very similar to its predecessor, the Desert Eagle, but features a few notable differences. The gun now has a 10 round magazine, rather than the old 7 round one. In addition, the iron sights are no longer laced with tritium, making them slightly harder to see. As well, the Vulture now has new reflective textures, which often lend the gun a brown or tan color in darker areas.
The Vulture is a relatively uncommon weapon in the campaign. It is the preferred weapon of many of the KPR commanders, such as Dobrynya Popovich and Kim-Il Sung. The Vulture is awarded to the player as a starting secondary in a few missions, notably 01: Operation Blockbuster, making it the first pistol seen in Modern Combat 3.
Unlocked at rank 12, the Vulture is the second pistol available to the player. With the larger magazine size, slightly higher rate of fire and lower recoil, the Vulture is a more balanced weapon than the Desert Eagle. Like the MK45, the Vulture can serve very well as a "finishing" weapon, thanks to its higher damage per shot than the MK45. Among the three pistols in Modern Combat 3, the Vulture is the easiest to use as a primary, and unlike the .44 Revolver or the MK45, the Vulture doesn't have any apparent downsides. It is widely considered to be a "jack of all trades" handgun, filling the role in between the .44 Revolver and the MK45.
Optional weapon attachments Edit
