The K-28 is a straightforward pistol available at the Quick Shop.


The K-28 can have 5 different Attachments installed on it, one for each slot. The type of attachment must be compatible with the weapon's type, so only attachments that have Pistol or Light Ammo as a category can be installed onto a K-28.


A standard semi-automatic pistol. An effective sidearm for any Prospector.


With a design that's seen no change in over two centuries, the CoTEC K-28 is one of the most popular weapons throughout known space, as are its many knock offs.
