Description[edit source]

The distinctive look and feel of the P08 Parabellum tells of its high precision and superior German craftsmanship. While an old design, it is a very effective weapon, and while very easy to sight, the recoil is the only downside.

History

The Luger P-08, designed in 1898, is a unique sidearm using a toggle-lock action, and has come to be known as an icon of the German military throughout World Wars I and II. This sidearm was the first to use the now immensely popular 9x19mm Parabellum (or "9x19mm Luger") cartridge, and is recognizable by the "jumping" effect of the rear toggle assembly and sights when fired.

Gameplay

The P-08 Parabellum has decent damage and fire rate but little ammo and low bullet velocity. Its greatest advantage is its weight; it uses only 2 equipment points. So it's an excellent complement for snipers and light machine gunners. It has a very high hip-fire accuracy. For Tank Crewmen, the P-08 is a good complement to the Adjustable Wrench, though SMGs are better, headshots and surprising the enemy gives you an advantage. The sights on the P-08 are fixed at 25m so you may have to aim high if the enemy is even a short distance away, while the C96's are set to 50m and can be adjusted up to 450m (unrealistic range for pistol usage). The P-08 also has a much fatter sight pin, which may impair your vision of the target at longer ranges.

Due to the P-08's low rate of fire compared to an SMG, it is advisable to aim for the head.

The P-08 has a loud firing sound compared to other weapons that are very distinguishable and may reveal your location.

The P-08 reloads the fastest of the pistols and also empties the magazine faster than all pistols by default, making it a good sidearm.
