The Luger P08 is a German semi-automatic pistol featured in Medal of Honor: Heroes and Medal of Honor: Heroes 2 as the German side-arm of choice, replacing the Walther P38 as the German sidearm of choice in the game series.
Medal of Honor: Rising Sun Edit
The P08 Luger makes a short appearance in Rising Sun. It was used by German Officers in the level: Singapore Sling at the Axis meeting. It was Kandler's sidearm of choice. They cannot be picked up and uses the same sound of the Nambu and deals the same amount of damage to the player.
Medal of Honor: HeroesEditThe P08 Luger is the official German sidearm in Heroes. It is only usable in the last mission. It is a good sidearm, doing medium damage and having 1 more round than the Colt M1911. The breach toggle pops up when firing, making rapid fire annoying, but still possible.
Medal of Honor: Heroes 2Edit
The P08 Luger is the Axis sidearm of choice and can be found in some missions. Ammo is rare as enemies (baring the rare) never use it, forcing the player to trade it off for another close quarters weapon not long after they have exhausted the limited ammunition supply. It is a good sidearm to have, it does mediocre damage per round, an average fire rate, but genuinely low recoil, but can get the player out of a sticky situation should they run out of ammo for their primary offensive weapon or don't have time to reload their primary weapon. Though the breach toggle pops up when firing, making aiming down sights annoying sometimes.
In Multiplayer, if the player chooses the Axis side, they will get a P08 sidearm for their class. It is a good weapon to get yourself out of a sticky situation with a sniper rifle, and on an SMG class it can be great to use when the SMG runs out.
- In the later half of the series the Luger replaces the P38 as the main side arm, this notably was exactly the opposite case in real life as the P38 was originally the intended Luger replacement.
- This handgun should not be confused with C96 "Broomhandle" Mauser handgun.
