The '''9mm Pistol''' is the basic sidearm that every player spawns with at the beginning of a game. It is rather weak weapon due to its low damage and limited ammunition and is generally only used in the early waves to kill weak ZEDs such as [[Cyst|Clots]] or [[Stalker (Killing Floor 2)|Stalkers]], save ammunition or [[Mechanics (Killing Floor 2)#Gameplay - Dosh|Dosh]] for other weapons. As such, it is mostly only used as a last resort when a player has exhausted all other forms of ammunition.
+
It has a magazine size of 15 bullets. With a full supply of ammo, it can reload 5 times + its initial magazine.

A surprisingly powerful gun when used against lesser ZEDs like [[Crawler_(Killing_Floor_2)|Crawlers]], [[Cyst|all]] [[Alpha_Clot|Clot]] [[Slasher|variants]], and [[Stalker_(Killing_Floor_2)|Stalkers]]. Its damage is enough to decapitate them in one shot, and only a few bodyshots are needed to take them down if you miss. Medium ZEDs, besides Bloats, may prove a bit hardier with their heads. If the 9mm Pistol is your only choice when fighting a large ZED, you might as well consider yourself out of the fight.

In the first few waves, [[Berserker (Killing Floor 2)|Berserkers]], [[Demolitionist (Killing Floor 2)|Demolitionists]], and [[Field Medic (Killing Floor 2)|Field Medics]] may find themselves using the 9mm Pistol much more often than other perks due to the nature of their weapons. Usually, the problem is with Bloats and their high health: Berserkers may not want to risk being too close, the Demolitionists' explosiove do not affect the head, and the Field Medics' HMTech-101 Pistol deals very low damage.
  
Moderately weak against everything else, requiring a lot more headshots to decapitate medium ZEDs, and very ineffective against large ZEDs. This, however, can be resolved by upgrades.

The 9mm Pistol is the basic sidearm that every player spawns with at the beginning of a game. It is a 9mm handgun equipped with a flashlight.

It has a magazine size of 15 bullets. With a full supply of ammo, it can reload 5 times + its initial magazine.

Due to its limited ammunition, it is generally only used in early waves to thin out groups of weak ZEDs to save ammunition, or to deal with the few remaining handful in a wave. As such, it is mostly only used as a last resort when a player has exhausted all other forms of ammunition.

Can be dual wielded by buying a second 9mm Pistol at the Trader, or picking up another from the ground.

Strategy

A surprisingly powerful gun when used against lesser ZEDs like Crawlers, all Clot variants, and Stalkers. Its damage is enough to decapitate them in one shot, and only a few bodyshots are needed to take them down if you miss. Medium ZEDs, besides Bloats, may prove a bit hardier with their heads. If the 9mm Pistol is your only choice when fighting a large ZED, you might as well consider yourself out of the fight.

When used by a Gunslinger, SWAT, or Commando, especially with relevant skills, it becomes an effective sidearm that remains viable even in later waves.

In the first few waves, Berserkers, Demolitionists, and Field Medics may find themselves using the 9mm Pistol much more often than other perks due to the nature of their weapons. Usually, the problem is with Bloats and their high health: Berserkers may not want to risk being too close, the Demolitionists' explosiove do not affect the head, and the Field Medics' HMTech-101 Pistol deals very low damage.

Upgrade the pistol if you have the Dosh to spare. Inevitably, you're going to run out of ammo, and you don't want to be stuck with an unreliable gun.

Bonuses

The 9mm Pistol is notably affected by the following boosts:

  • All of the Gunslinger's and Sharpshooter's passives and skills.
  • The Commando's Passive bonus damage and reload time, the level 10 Fallback skill (x1.85 more damage (46 damage)), the level 15 skill Prepared (increases reserve ammo from 75 bullets to 90) and Machine Gunner skill (increases both damage and faster RoF in ZED Time).
  • SWAT's Close Combat Training skill (x1.85 more damage (46 damage)) and Rapid Assault (faster RoF in ZED Time).
  • Additional notes on how it interacts with perk's skill choices can be found here.

Trivia

  • The 9mm Pistol seems to be a mix between the Beretta 92fs Elite and the M9A1, with additional serrations at the front end and plain black sights, in opposite to the 3-dot sights.
  • The flashlight serves no purpose and can't be used, since all player characters are already equipped with body flashlights.
