The 5 Best Weapons for WWI Warfare in Tannenberg

5 of 6

Mauser C96 Pistol

  • Type: Semi-automatic Pistol
  • Magazine: 10
  • Ammo: 7.63×25mm Mauser
  • Attachments: NA

Mauser, mostly known for its series of rifles, produced an alternative to the Luger pistol to fill the gap in the massive demand for this specific type of weapon in the German army during WWI.

It was nicknamed the “Broomhandle” due to its unusual grip shaped like the handle of a broom, which gives it more stability during fire. Its long barrel and high-velocity cartridge allow for a much superior range and better penetration than most other pistols in Tannenberg.
