Upon completion of the game in Impossible mode you will see your unlocks at the end of the credits. One of the unlocks is the weapon the Hand Cannon. Although the weapon’s name implies a revolver, the gun itself is actually a foam finger that Isaac wears. It is a reference to the same weapon you could unlock in Dead Space 2.

An interesting aspect of this gun is that it has infinite ammo, but cannot be upgraded. It is a very powerful weapon that, when shot, causes enemies to be de-limbed immediately. Besides dealing high damage when shooting the Hand Cannon also deals high damage when meleeing.
