Braun 9mm Parabellum (more commonly know as the Luger) is a weapon available to you in The Operative: No One Lives Forever. It features a 10 round magazine and a variety of ammunition. It can be fitted with a silencer.
It is chambered for 9x19mm ammunition, has a 10 round magazine capacity, and is the preferred weapon of many H.A.R.M. operatives in the later chapters. Like the Walther P38, it can be fitted with a silencer, but it is slightly louder (even when suppressed), has a lower rate of fire and takes a bit longer to reload. On the other hand, it can use FMJ, Dum-Dum, incendiary, and cyanide-tipped ammunition, the last of which the Walther P38 cannot use.
The Parabellum (or Luger) was designed by Georg J. Luger in 1898. It was the sidearm of the German officers of the German armed forces during both WWI and WWII. Among Allied forces, the Luger was one of the most prized and coveted spoils of war. Unlike in the game, the Luger originally features a magazine of only 8 rounds (compared to 10 in the game).
The Parabellum boasts the following assortment of available ammunition:
- 9mm Full Metal Jacket (FMJ) with a maximum of 480 rounds (48 clips)
- 9mm Dum-dum with a maximum of 240 rounds (24 clips), causes critical damage.
- 9mm Phosphorus with a maximum of 240 rounds (24 clips), does burn damage.
- 9mm Cyanide with a maximum of 240 rounds (24 clips), does poison damage and decreases accuracy when hit.
