The M1911 is a weapon featured in Battlefield 4.
It has moderately high damage, taking between 3 and 7 shots to kill. Its power makes it advantageous at close range, but its capacity is rather small, often taking the whole magazine to down an enemy at medium range.
Compared to the Compact 45, the M1911 is inferior when it comes to magazine size and rate of fire, but it has much higher accuracy, as well as lower recoil. Its recoil is mainly vertical, with little horizontal recoil. It may also be equipped with a 3x scope.
It is notable that the iron sights are misaligned, with the front sight being much lower than the actual point the bullet will impact. Using a Laser Sight, RDS, or scope will show the actual point of aim.
The M1911 is the only multiplayer firearm that has an achievement/trophy specifically linked to it. It is ".45 Old School", which requires 45 kills with the M1911 to unlock.

- The M1911 in Battlefield 4 is modeled after a custom Vickers Tactical 1911 which was specially designed for Medal of Honor: Warfighter, another EA game (its developers, Danger Close Games, later reformed into DICE LA). Compared to its model in Warfighter, the Vickers Tactical logo on the grip is removed, leaving behind an empty triangle.
- In Battlefield 4, the 3x scope was originally exclusive to employees of DICE. It was supposed to be released to anyone who logged into multiplayer on December 5, 2013, but was delayed due to issues with the game. It was then unlocked for all players following the delay.
