Around his waist is a utility belt with several pouches and two, holstered handguns on either side. For combat, Deadshot uses dual wrist-mounted gun.

He fired his rocket, but it was never meant to hit Harjavti. As Superman swooped in to stop the rocket, it veered off, leading Superman away from the scene. Miss Martian headed straight for Deadshot, but the rocket flew up behind her. Superman blocked it, but with both of them distracted, Deadshot let loose a shot from his wrist-mounted gun.[4]

After attempting to flee, Deadshot was pummeled by an enraged Superboy.

After seeing Sumaan Harjavti catch the shot as intended, Deadshot fled. But he didn't get far; Superboy blocked the way out. Deadshot tried to dispatch of his assailant with his gun, but Superboy was invulnerable. Enraged due to his Shield use, Superboy brutally beat Deadshot until Superman intervened.[2]
