M-5 Phalanx is a Heavy Pistol Weapon in Mass Effect 2.  M-5 Phalanx is manufactured by Systems Alliance. Heavy Pistols are all-purpose Weapons that are effective even at long range. They are the most accurate and powerful Weapons outside of Sniper RiflesHeavy pistol's clips are small, though, and need to be reloaded often.


Highly accurate and lethal sidearm. Effective against armor; weak against shields and biotic barriers. Upgrades the Predator heavy pistol.

The M5 Phalanx is the product of the Alliance's Offensive Handgun Project that developed a close-in weapon to be used on armored or shielded targets with no loss of stopping power in comparison to the soldier's assault rifle. The Phalanx enjoys a ballistics advantage even over most "hand cannons" and features an integral laser sight which is highly visible even in bright lighting conditions. Civilian variants are often purchased by colonists on planets that have particularly dangerous big game animals.
