| "A pistol developed by Colt, the Python is a revolver known for its rapid rate of fire."|
- in-game description
Python is a magnum revolver featured in CrossFire.
The Colt Python is a six shot double action revolver chambered for the .357 Magnum cartridge. It is one of the few handguns wielded with one hand in CF.
It has high accuracy, very fast firing speed, fast draw speed, and fast reloading speed. It deals high damage to the enemy (2-3 hit kills to the body at close range) and it also has very low recoil, allowing for accurate rapid fire.
As a downside, the Python is less effective than the Desert Eagle at long range, due to quicker damage drop as the distance increases.

- The Python has one of the fastest firing speed of all semi-automatic handguns in CF, capable of emptying its six round cylinder within one second (Actually the fastest was Anaconda-Ghetto in it's Fast Draw mode, but didn't count because of how the player using the Fast Draw - holding LMB like an automatic pistol), only behind PMR 30, COP 357 Derringer and Dual Colt Hellfire.
- Even if the spent casings can be seen falling from the gun when reloading, players can notice the cylinder is still fully loaded.
- Originally, the Python is wielded by two hands in both 1st person and 3rd person, but later it was changed to wielded by one hand (see screenshots below).
- During beta test, the Python shares firing sound with Desert Eagle, but by the time it was released, it was given its own unique firing sound.
- In real life, few shooters can rapid fire the Python loaded with .357 Magnum rounds with one hand while suffering very little recoil, as seen in-game. This is because .357 Mag produces a lot of recoil, noise, and muzzle flash.
- The Python is known as the finest revolver the Colt Manufacturing Company has ever produced; boasting high accuracy, smooth trigger pull, and slick action. (not known for a high rate of fire like the in-game description says)
- The Walking Dead TV series prominently features a nickel-plated Python as the main weapon of the protagonist Rick Grimes.
- In CF Philippines, it can be obtained temporarily through the prizes of the Mini Lotto capsules (3 days best).
- In CF Vietnam, Python is available in the Item Shop (cash) while CF China sells this gun as a GP item. In CF NA, it is available in the Black Market together with the Colt SAA.
