- Fed with a 10-round clip the large magazine and effectiveness made this handgun a favorite amongst soldiers. It saw military service by German half way WW1 and were also carried by officers from other nations as private purchases

The Mauser C96 Broomhandle is a semiautomatic clip-fed handgun used by various German units, including the Landser machine gunner and various members of the Stosstruppen. The C96 has a distinguished look for a pistol (some would rather say elegant). It was introduced alongside the free Horrors of War DLC.
The C96 has about the same damage as the Luger pistol. But is has a slightly higher rate of fire and doesnt block the users aim everytime it a bullet is triggered. It has also the largest magazine of all pistols ingame (excluding the artillery luger). the main disadvantage of the weapon is that it has to be empty before reloading, being fed with a 10-round stripper clip rather than a detachable magazine.
- The C96 was the first weapon introduced in the "Weapon Wednesday" teasers
- It is the only pistol that hasn't got the magazine in the handle, as it is the only pistol that is fed with a stripper clip instead of a box magazine.
