Pistole 08

Paul McNally

The Pistole 08 is probably our favourite pistol in Sniper Elite 5. If you are looking for a gun with decent stopping power, and the ability to hit a target from more than a few feet away with a decent amount of stopping power, then look no further.

The Pistole 08 is the marksman's choice of sidearm.

Pistole 08 Pros and Cons

Slightly resembling the German Luger, the Pistole 08 is a fantastic little handgun and one that you should definitely try to get your hands on in the game. With fabulous range and a very low bullet drop it really is the gun you want if you want to take out an enemy at range with a smaller weapon.


  • Low bullet drop
  • Great for ranged shots


  • Long time to aim

Audible Range

As with the Model D, the audible range of the Pistole 08 comes in at 70m unsuppressed which isn’t ideal, however its greater range means it is more forgiving when it comes to putting a little extra distance between you and your targets.


1x - All the pistols here are only coming with 1x zoom so it really isn’t a factor. The way you are using them, you probably want to be shooting from the hip rather than looking down the sight anyway.

Magazine size

A magazine size of eight is not too shabby either and when all the pros are rolling into one, combined with not having to reload too often, it’s hard not to love the Pistole 08.
