The Walther P38 is a German handgun featured in Medal of Honor, Medal of Honor: Underground, Medal of Honor: Frontline and Medal of Honor: Allied Assault. In Heroes and Heroes 2 the P38 is replaced by the Luger and in Airborne it is replaced by the Mauser C96. The Walther P38 developed as a replacement for the Luger PO8 and it is entered service in 1938. After the war the P38 entered service in the West-German armed forces as the P1. From an engineering perspective the P38 was a semi-automatic pistol design that introduced technical features that are found in other semi-automatic pistols like the Beretta 92.

Medal of Honor and UndergroundEdit

In Medal of Honor, the Walther P38 is used during three levels, The Rooftops of Dachsmag, The Hunter's Den  and Dive!. It has short recoil and is a very accurate gun overall. It comes with a silencer in the mission Destroy the Mighty Railgun Greta, and in the level Escape the Wolfram. The Walther makes gradually less noise then the Colt .45, and when equipped with a silencer, makes little to no noise at all.

 It is the very first side-arm the player starts out with in the Underground, supplied by Manon's brother, Jacques. Silenced version can be used during missions Hunting the Desert Fox and Undercover in Crete. It holds a capacity of 8 rounds, 1 more than the M1911, and it has the much greater power and fire rate, making the M1911 essentially inferior.

Medal of Honor: Allied AssaultEdit

The Walther P-38 makes it's return in Allied Assault. It is the standard side-arm of the German forces in both singleplayer and multiplayer.

Single PlayerEdit

In Single player, the Walther P-38 is found in use with German Tanker crew men, German maintenance crews, Scientist and Army officers. It can be used by Powell but only through hacking.


In Multiplayer, the P-38 is the sidearm of every class in the German team's selection menu. It is a potent sidearm, carrying 1 more round than the Colt, though doing less damage than it due to the weaker 9mm cartridge.

Medal of Honor: FrontlineEdit

The Walther P38 is featured once again and the last time in series as the official German sidearm. It is used by very large number of German soldiers, from harbor workers to MG operators. It is first usable in the level Riding Out the Storm where the player picks one up upon boarding Sturmgeist's train. It is good for getting the player out of a bad reloading situation, though it will perform poorly outside of close range.
