Type 14 Nambu

Paul McNally

The gun with the highest mobility rating in the game, the Type 14 Nambu hails from the Land of the Rising Sun and offers unprecedented amounts of movement and control in it;s small form-factor.

This Japanese handgun has unmatched mobility.

Type 14 Nambu Pros and Cons

For all its great points, we feel the Japanese made Type-14 Nambu lets you down when you need it most - its stopping power. Its very weak damage means it is a risk to carry, ven if wielding it is a joy.


  • Quiet semi-auto
  • Faster movement


  • Weak damage

Audible Range

At 65m audible range this is still a fairly noisy weapon, especially when you factor in that it is pretty weak as well. It’s not scoring points for stealth around these parts unfortunately.


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

Even though it is a super-light weight pistol, the Nambu still manages to fit in a magazine carrying eight cartridges which is no mean feat. However, due to its lack of stopping power you will definitely need more than one to get the job done, unless you hit the bullseye first time.
