"Formally known as Pistol, Semiautomatic, 9mm, M9, the M9 was selected as the primary sidearm of the entire United States military in 1985. Developed in Italy, the M9 was selected in a series of often disputed trials, only narrowly beating out other contenders, because of its high quality and low price. The M9 is the primary sidearm of the USMC."

— Battlelog description

The M9 is a weapon featured in Battlefield 3.


The M9 is first seen in the first mission of the singleplayer campaign, Semper Fidelis. Blackburn obtains it by kicking a PLR operative armed with the weapon. For tutorial purposes, the M9 can eventually kill an enemy with a single shot in the mission. It is also used in The Great Destroyer, being identical in stopping power to the first level.


In Co-op the M9 is the starting secondary weapon for both players in Exfiltration, Hit and Run, and Drop 'Em Like Liquid with suppressors attached. Also, both players can use the M9, unsilenced or silenced, in the man-down state in every mission. It can kill an enemy in two to three hits.


The M9 is issued to the United States Marine Corps as their standard sidearm. It has a 15-round magazine and a quick reload time, with a moderate rate of fire. Although it is versatile enough for mid-range use, the M9 is most effective at close range, and is incredibly useful to any player, especially Recon players who are encountered by opposing players at close range. There are three variants of the M9 pistol - first, the standard no-attachment M9, the M9 TACT. sporting a Tactical flashlight underneath the barrel, and the M9 SUPP. which has a Suppressor attached.



  • The M9 and 93R may lose its hammer when equipped with certain weapons.
  • The M9 in "The Great Destroyer" fired from the Police Car has no reserve ammunition (although it can be reloaded infinitely), a glitched hammer, and aiming simply zooms the screen rather than using the iron sights.
