The Desert Eagle is a Pistol Duke uses as a basic weapon in Duke Nukem Advance. It is also used in Duke Nukem: Time to Kill, Duke Nukem: Land of the Babes, Duke Nukem: Critical Mass, and Duke Nukem: Manhattan Project as well as in the comic book Duke Nukem: Glorious Bastard. The 2001 DNF trailer shows Duke's Pistol as a gold Desert Eagle. Marketing material from that period also show Duke wielding a Desert Eagle. This pistol also appeared in a promo picture released for the current version of DNF in 2007. While it was removed in favor of the M1911, the Desert Eagle can be found wielded by the statue the Pig Cops are toppling in the 2011 reveal trailer.
