Rupture on Pistols

Can't seem to find this anywhere. Does rupture work with pistols? Thanks.

What do you mean exactly?

- Do they get extra damage from the target being ruptured? Yes. So do most damage dealing skills and items. Even DoTs.
- Do Plasma pistols apply rupture? Yes. I'm pretty sure Fan Fire applies only one instance of rupture tho. But using Lightning Hands then Quickdraw then pistol shot will apply 3 instances.

I got rupture from the AWC on a sharpshooter that also has pistol perks and carries a pistol. I never really had rupture before and don't know how it works at all. So I thought it might make regular pistols apply rupture like plasma I guess... But not, turns out that perk just gives a rupture special shot to the sniper rifle.

While we're at it though, does shredder apply to pistols?? Looks like not... Just shot a fanfire at a hunter drone, not only didn't kill it, but its 3 armor points are still there... Don't know if it makes a difference that the shooter was using an enhanced shadowkeeper...

Edit: Just read actually about shredder, it says only your primary weapon shreds armor.

I think if you carry shredder rounds, then the pistol will shred armor. The perk just applies to the primary.

True, that might be.
