HotShot is a simulant buddy that can appear in Perfect Dark's Co-op mode. He is unlocked by completing the mission Area 51: Infiltration on Special Agent in under 5:00. He is a CI soldier (he resembles the range master in Carrington Institute).
HotShot is, as his name implies, an exceptionally fast and accurate shot. He carries a DY357-LX in his right hand and a DY357 Magnum in his left hand; he doesn't often use the DY357 Magnum, as he tends to end most fights in one shot from the DY357-LX.
