Battlefield 4 pistols
The Battlefield 4 pistols are based on real world, modern firearms found in use across the world. Pistols in Battlefield 4 range from revolvers, to semi-automatic gun, to fully automatic ones as well. Some Battlefield 4 pistols are faction based, like the M9 for the US, and the MP443 for the Russian side, while most other guns are unlockable and can be used by both factions. All pistols in the game can be used by all classes.
Battlefield 4 pistols list
The pistols in Battlefield 4 are similar to the previous games, as BF4 is set in modern day. Battlefield 4 pistols range from small-arms 9mm to the heavy .44 Magnum. Pistols, like other weapons in the game, will have their own unlocks and attachments, such as silencers and flashlights.
Battlefield 4 pistols tips
Depending on the need and situation, there are a variety of Battlefield 4 pistols. The starter pistols such as the M9 and MP443 are great all-round guns, but a good step up is the M1911, which deals more damage and has better range. Since pistols aren’t used as main weapons, it’s best to equip a good all-round Battlefield 4 pistol that’s useful when you run out of ammo for your main weapon.
Keep in mind that all Battlefield 4 pistols (besides the .44 Magnum) have very limited range, so they’re only useful when your main weapon is out of ammo and in close quarters. Pistols can also be used as an alternative silenced weapon, in case you need stealth but your main weapon isn’t equipped with a silencer. it’s therefore a great idea to equip your sidearm with a silencer.
For even more range and damage, try the revolvers: the 44 Magnum and MP412 are very accurate and powerful. However, they are limited by only 6 bullets and very long reload times. In most cases, the best sidearms are the M1911 and the G17 (Glock 17), which offer great overall performance, accuracy, and range.
Battlefield 4 pistols unlocks
Like other weapon groups, Battlefield 4 pistols have their own unlocks. Since pistols are different, the range of unlocks is limited to silencers, flashlights, and laser sights. In order to unlock these, players must earn kills with a particular pistol.
