Desert Eagle

The .50 Action Express Desert Eagle

The Desert Eagle is a weapon that appears in Duke Nukem Advance, Duke Nukem: Time to Kill, Duke Nukem: Critical Mass, and Duke Nukem: Manhattan Project, as well as in the comic book Duke Nukem: Glorious Bastard. The weapon also appeared in early images of Duke Nukem Forever but was scrapped from the final game.

Scrapped from Duke Nukem Forever[]

The 2001 Duke Nukem Forever trailer shows Duke's Pistol as a gold Desert Eagle. Marketing material from that period also show Duke wielding a Desert Eagle. It appeared in another promotional image from 2007. While it was ultimately scrapped in favor of the M1911, the Desert Eagle can still be found wielded by the statue the Pig Cops are toppling in the 2011 reveal trailer.
