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. The Luger was developed by Georg Luger in 1898 and became the service pistol of the German Empire in 1904 and later for the Nazi Germany in 1933. The Luger was replaced by the Walther P38 due to it's simple design and cheaper to manufacture. Even after it's replacement the Luger was still used by officers and soldiers alike. The Luger was well known amongst allied soldiers whom liked to take Lugers as souvenirs.
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.
