The Desert Eagle is a weapon in the Pistols class featured in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. The design of the Desert Eagle in GTA San Andreas is based on a real life IMI Desert Eagle.

This weapon also appears in Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto IV.

Desert Eagle Description:

An extremely powerful handgun, the Desert Eagle provides strong fire power, but also great recoil. Increasing the skill level of the weapon will help with its disadvantages, allowing for deadly shots even from very far away.

This weapon has three Skill Levels you can progress through: Poor, Gangster and Hitman. Reaching the Hitman level allows you to fire while moving and improves lock-on range, accuracy, rate of fire, and strafe speed when using the weapon.

How to get the Desert Eagle in GTA San Andreas:

The Desert Eagle can be purchased from Ammu-Nation for a price of $1,200 (or 20% higher in Las Venturas).

It becomes available after completing the mission Black Project and You've Had Your Chips in Story Mode.

The Desert Eagle can be found and picked up around the San Andreas map (see the spawn locations in the "Appearances" section below).
