Sturmpistole IRL

A Sturmpistole in reality

The Sturmpistole, alternatively known as the Kampfpistole (German: Assault/Combat Pistol), was a handheld anti-tank grenade launcher developed by Nazi Germany during World War II. The weapon used Flare Gun components, modified with a shoulder stock and provision to use shaped-charge anti-tank grenades. The weapon did not see mass production, and its intended niche was filled mid war by the Panzerschreck and Panzerfaust series of launchers.[1]

Battlefield V[]

In Battlefield V, two variants of the Sturmpistole are available to the Support kit - the AT Grenade Pistol and the Kampfpistole.

AT Grenade Pistol[]

"The Sturmpistole fires Anti-Tank shaped charges indirectly at long distances."

— In-game description

The AT Grenade Pistol is a gadget featured in Battlefield V. It is issued to the Support kit, being unlocked at class rank 6. Compared to the Panzerfaust, the Grenade Pistol fires a much lower velocity projectile which travels in a ballistic arc similar to the Grenade Rifle, dealing less damage on impact. Its blast effect is also mild against infantry, as even a direct hit deals 98 damage. But however, A single hit versus buildings portions and fortifications will often bring them down. Opening up flanking routes. 



"The Kampfpistole fires heavy Anti-Personal charges indirectly at medium and short distances."

— In-game Description

The Kampfpistole is a variant of the AT Grenade Pistol added in the Summer Update. It fires timed fuse high-explosive charges that are effective against infantry and is generally comparable to the Frag Grenade Rifle available to the Assault. However, the projectiles launched by the Kampfpistole have a longer fuse time of around 3 seconds, giving enemies a greater chance of throwing them back.
