USP 45 (Stylized as USP .45) is a secondary weapon that is supplied to the player for free when he/she starts playing Dread.


  • Aim for the head when shooting, as it deals 50 damage and stuns the target.
  • For better accuracy, stand still while shooting.
    • However, you are a vulnerable target while standing still.
  • If you're good at aiming, this weapon will allow you to destroy your foes very easily.


  • This weapon replaced the Pistol as the starting weapon of Dread.
  • The USP 45 was replaced with the M1911, due to confusion, because the color scheme was looking similar to the Steyr M. Not only that but also because the gun didn't look like other Dread guns.
