- Weapon description


Desert Eagle-El Dorado is a dual-wield pistol VVIP variant of Desert Eagle featured in CrossFire.

Overview

This Desert Eagle VVIP weapon has a El Dorado-themed skin with silver-gold decoration similar to the Noble Gold skin, plus it comes equipped with a dagger mounted on the barrel. It also has a 10 rounds magazine (+3), enhanced draw, and reload speed.

Unique to all other weapons, Desert Eagle-El Dorado is dual wielded, but normally only one gun is used and fires in semi-automatic mode. However, if LMB is held down, players will raise their left hand and fire both guns in an automatic-like manner. This technique has the advantage of high damage dealing since both guns retain its single-wield quality, but at the same time increases recoil greatly.

Just like Desert Eagle-Born Beast, it also features melee attack, except players character will strike with both guns at the same time when clicking RMB. This technique is slightly slower than Desert Eagle-Born Beast's knife stab, but it has the advantage of a wider spread.

Trivia

  • "El Dorado" means 'The Golden' in Spanish, which partially describes this gun's main color scheme.
  • This is the first VVIP (Victor class) weapon that doesn't have animals or beast motif.
    • But overall, this is the second VVIP weapon that doesn't have that motif after M4A1-S Jewelry.
  • After a long wait, this gun marks the return of unique draw / reload animation set, plus it features a unique dual wield animation as well.
  • Unlike other dual-wielded weapons, DE-El Dorado does not have increased ammo when using dual wield - players will just fire off 10 rounds in succession and then only one gun is reloaded. While the ammo shortage is a drawback, this technique does have advantage of faster reload speed (Same with normal firing mode).
    • Although there is an animation showing the switch to dual wield, as soon as LMB is released, the left gun will instantly disappear and the right gun goes back to its original position right away.
  • DE-El Dorado marks the 4th VIP Weapon in the same weapon line (Desert Eagle), the 3rd one is Barrett M82A1, the 2nd one is AK-47 and the 1st one is M4A1.
  • This gun always show a Dual DE killmark, regardless of whether players use Dual Wield Mode or not.
  • Since this gun is only held in one hand all the time, the 3rd person view animation is shared with Colt Python, where the player's character point the gun forward with their right arm while their left arm (along with the back up gun) rest on their hips.
  • If released and re-hold LMB during reload animation, the player will be able to use Dual Mode immediately without having to fire a first round. This trick is useful when being chased by tough zombies / mutants, as they can spray away very fast after each reload.
  • In CrossFire Philippines, players will receive a 7-day FOX Undercover and Kukri-Immortal Dragon upon the purchase of Desert Eagle-El Dorado at a discounted price.
    • Two VIP Packages were also offered, one for AK47-Knife-Iron Beast and the other for M4A1-S-Iron Beast for 2600 eCoins each. Once bought either of the two packages, the player will receive a 14-day FOX Undercover and Kukri-Immortal Dragon and rebate of 400 eCoins. The VIP Packages offered are available on September 5 to 25 only.
  • This gun has an animation cancel glitch, if the player shoots then tap RMB then tap LMB rapidly, the firing speed will more faster than the Fast Draw perk, even the recoil is lower, this is the same with Mosin Nagant's Rapid Fire glitch.
  • In CF Europe, DE El Dorado's weapon icon in storage and item shop mistakenly uses Desert Eagle-El Dorado Noble Gold's icon.
    • With this small issue, the El Dorado's knife effect on both stances is missing.
  • In a Wave Mode / Super Soldiers (TDM) or using Nymphs's Bless, when this weapon reaches more than 30 bullets per magazine and the player using Fast Draw perk, after firing about 15-20 bullets, the character will stop the animation, hold both guns nearly the same as Dual Colt Model 2.0s and the firing speed with increase more faster than normal. This quirk can also be viewed when activating Nymph's Bless skill in Zombie Mode.
