The .38 Auto is the default gun in True Crime: New York City. It is based on the Walther PK380 pistol, which chambers .380ACP.
The .38 Auto has very low damage, though it can be fired unbelievably fast with an effective trigger finger. Despite its very low damage, it can still take down enemies with a single shot to the arm or leg with precision aim.
The .38 Auto has infinite ammo, and holds ten rounds per magazine.
