The Type 14 "Nambu" is the third version of the Japanese Nambu pistol series, first designed by Kijiro Nambu in 1902. It saw mass production before and during World War II. It was standard-issue to non-commissioned officers of the Japanese military, and was also commonly purchased by officers.

Battlefield 1943[]

In Battlefield 1943, the Type 14 pistol is the sidearm issued to the IJN Scout kit. It is a very weak weapon, requiring around 5-6 body shots to kill someone, has a high rate of fire and has a relatively long reload whilst only having a capacity of seven rounds, and that means the player can only afford to miss one shot. Therefore, it should only be used as a last resort weapon. A strategy to use with the pistol is to shoot an enemy with the Type 98 and, if the hit does not kill the enemy, pull out the Type 14 and use the cross hair dot to finish off the player.


Battlefield: Bad Company 2[]

In Battlefield: Bad Company 2, the Nambu makes a brief appearance in the opening mission, Operation Aurora. It is only seen in the hands of Watanabe, and IJN soldiers in the Type 95 Kuroganes during the car chase segment. It is not usable by the player.
