The Gold Desert Eagle (also known as the "Gold Deagle") is a handgun available only in Hitman: Contracts. It is a gold-plated version of the Desert Eagle, with a higher damage output, which equals that of the dual AMT Hardballers.

The very large, semi-automatic handgun commonly fires either the .50 Action Express, the .44 Magnum, or .357 Magnum cartridges. Its unique property lies in its superior stopping power, able to kill an enemy with just 1-2 shots to the body, with head shots always being lethal. It is very powerful for direct confrontations at close range. A variety of NPCs used this as their primary sidearm.
- Asylum Aftermath - A hidden dual wielded version can be found after obtaining Orthmeyer's Keycard on Lee Hong's desk in The Wang Fou Incident, and afterwards entering a secret room containing five clones of Agent 47, which is near the starting point.
