Verdun Wiki

The Pistole Parabellum 1908 is a toggle-locked recoil-operated semi-automatic pistol. One of the first semi-automatic pistols, the Luger was designed to use a toggle-lock action, which uses a jointed arm to lock, as opposed to the slide actions of almost every other semi-automatic pistol.

The Luger, or Pistole Parabellum 1908 "Luger", is a German semiautomatic pistol with an internal eight round magazine. is the main secondary weapon for the many of German squads in-game, though many Germans may be armed with the C96 or Reichsrevolver. In the Frontlines game mode, it is only available to Central Powers squads, but in the Attrition mode, it is useable by non-Central Powers players.


In game, the weapon has a somewhat large sway, making it ineffective at long range, and takes some time getting used to. It is quite effective, and compares well to its French counterpart, the Ruby in short range firefights. Compared to other handguns, like the Webley, it fires significantly faster, though it makes up for this in doing less damage and having a wider spread.

Artillery Luger[]

The Artillery Luger was an adaptation of the popular and iconic Luger P08 for use by German artillery personnel for defence. With a longer barrel, wooden stock and 32 round magazine, the artillery luger would become an image among the trenches of the great war, a favourite among trench raiding parties.

The Artillery Luger is effectively the same thing as the normal Luger, with the major difference that it has a significantly larger magazine which is capable of much longer fire without any major need to reload. It can be quite devastating, with a constant stream of aimed bullets and the gun having a smaller sway than the normal Luger pistol.

These advantages make it very popular, especially on short-range engagements common on maps like Champagne.
