Borschardt C-93 IRL.jpg

The Borchardt C-93 is a German semi-automatic pistol developed by Hugo Borchardt in 1893. It is one of the first mass-produced semi-automatic pistols, with 3000 being manufactured over a 9-year period, and was tested by various armed forces soon after its introduction, including the US Army, Navy and the Swiss Military.

Despite this, the weapon was never adopted as standard by any power due to its production costs and unwieldy design. Nevertheless, the weapon was influential; the 7.65x25mm round used by the weapon served as the basis of the cartridge developed for the C96 Mauser pistol, while Borchardt's protégé, Georg Luger, went on to design the more commercially successful Luger P08 pistol using the same toggle-lock mechanism used by the C-93.

C93 Pistol[]

This item has a Codex entry: C-93 Pistol
"The C93 was the first mass-produced semi-automatic pistol. The design of its toggle lock mechanism served as a precursor for the now legendary P08."

— In-game description

The C93 is a weapon featured in Battlefield 1. It was first seen during the Battlefield 1: Official Gamescom Gameplay Trailer.

It can be unlocked after reaching Support level 10. Among the handguns available to all standard infantry, it has the fastest muzzle velocity, a high rate of fire, a slightly larger magazine, and generally favorable recoil. However, it is somewhat less powerful, and less accurate while moving.

Compared to other low-damage, high-rate-of-fire pistols, it maintains a muzzle velocity and accuracy advantage whilst stationary, but has a lower fire rate and longer reload time.

Like the P08 Pistol, the C93's toggle lock mechanism may be slightly disturbing while hip-fired, but manages to stay out of the way while aiming down sight due to recoil.

C93 Carbine[]

This item has a Codex entry: C93 Carbine
"The carbine version of the C93 pistol, equipped with a shoulder stock and sound suppressor."

— In-game description

A carbine variant of the weapon, called the C93 Carbine, was added for the Tanker and Pilot kits in the Battlefield 1: In the Name of the Tsar expansion. Compared to the base weapon, the Carbine variant features a stock and a Suppressor.


  • The C93 Carbine was originally featured as a developer-only variant of the C93, which could only be accessed by hacking the game.
