What is Pistol Whip?

Film-inspired gunplay and blood-pumping beats collide in this action-rhythm game, updated for PlayStation VR 2.

Winner of VR GOTY at the 2020 DICE Awards, this physical first-person shooter is fuelled by dynamic tracks, dreamscape visuals and easy to learn, tough to master gunplay. Blast, duck, and dodge your way through fever dream scenarios, build unique rhythms in a ballet of bullets and claim glory on the leader boards. 

Inspired by iconic action cinema, the only thing that goes harder than this title’s soundtrack is you. Flow to the music with your own rhythmic patterns, or go all out as a dual-wielding deadeye with nothing to lose.
