In ''Shadow of Chernobyl'', a Black Kite can be found on [[Gordon Freeman|Gordon Freeman's]] body in the [[Wild Territory]], however it probably won't be in perfect condition. Depending on the game version, it also may be possible to buy one from [[Duty]]. The Black Kite sold by Duty presumably belonged to a [[Mercenaries|mercenary]] named [[Hog]], who appeared in ''Clear Sky''.

The Black Kite has a powerful damage per bullet and uses the .45 ACP cartridge making it the most powerful sidearm of the game. This, however, is offset by its mediocre fire rate, high recoil and poor handling.

The player can also fit a [[silencer]], although this will decrease the weapon's power slightly – then again it will ''still'' have the most power of any pistol, aside from the [[Big Ben]].

It seems that the Black Kite is much more powerful than in other games, since the Black Kite can kill even stalkers wearing [[exoskeleton]]s with one headshot – impossible in other games. Additionally, the Black Kite also possesses a unique recoil kick-back that noticeably displaces the user's view per shot in a vertical manner, making accurate, follow-up shots quite challenging to do.

The Black Kite is a more exclusive and rare weapon in ''Clear Sky''. The experts group of [[Bandits]] in [[Limansk-13|Limansk]] mostly use a Black Kite as a sidearm. [[Kostyan]] and [[Hog]] are known to carry one of these pistols. Alternatively, one can either join the [[Bandits]] and buy it from [[Tooth]] or do enough jobs for the [[Bandits]] and wait for the job that requires the "Modified shooter", a fully modified Desert Eagle with its initial stats boosted. One other way to get it is to kill all [[Bandits]] at their base until the base door opens, and kill their leader, [[Yoga]], or [[Senka]], as they both carry the weapon. The Black Kite may also be found in the Garbage but this is rare. The Black Kite maybe found in the hands of a dead Bandit member in the Depot, but it is rare to the side-arm in the hands of one of the Bandits in the Depot.

Unlike in Shadow of Chernobyl, the recoil of the gun is lesser in comparison as the kick-back has been removed and instead replaced with the generic, circular recoil pattern inherent of all pistols, although at the most noticeable case. However, the gun's handling is still compromised by rapid firing, making it very easy to lose aim of a distant target if firing in that manner.

[[Aydar]] and [[Thunderov]] are the only ones who can fully upgrade the Black Kite, though the player will need to get 2 USB flash disks containing upgrade schematics for Aydar in order to fully upgrade it. [[Limpid]] and [[Garin]] can also upgrade the Black Kite but cannot install the final upgrades. A [[Silencer|silencer]] cannot be attached to this weapon.

**One can also assume it would be almost impossible to find the correct cartridges for the Black Kite in the Zone thus anyone with the right senses could convert a pistol to fire rounds that are more common.

*A silenced Black Kite can be seen behind [[Nimble]] in ''Call of Pripyat''. However, it is not obtainable and none of the Black Kites in the game can accept a silencer.

*"Black [[wikipedia:Kite|Kite]]" and "Steppe [[wikipedia:Eagle|Eagle]]" are the real non-scientific names for two actual raptor (bird of prey) species. Somewhat ironically, the weapon's actual name, "Desert Eagle," however, does ''not ''refer to an actual raptor species.
