The Welrod is a suppressed, bolt-action, magazine-fed pistol developed by the British and used during World War II. The pistol was intended for use by clandestine or partisan forces as a silent assassination weapon, and was designed at the request of the Special Operations Executive by Station XI in Welwyn Garden City, who also developed the Welgun. Chambered in either .32 ACP or 9mm, the weapon had a very short range but was exceptionally quiet due to a 73 dB muzzle report and a manually operated bolt. It could also be disassembled into sections to aid in concealment. Between 2,800 and 14,000 units were built, with the weapon still in service with British special forces during the Falklands and the Gulf War.The Welrod was often described as the quietest weapon of WWII but its silencing system was most effective for the first 15 shots.
The Welrod is a weapon set to be featured in Battlefield V. It first appeared in the Battlefield V - Chapter 4: Defying the Odds Trailer.
