"The good ol' pocket sniper, arguably better than the Dragunov for taking out zombies at long distance"


The Luger P08 is an infamous light, accurate and long ranged handgun. This was one of the first semi-automatic pistols in history.

Background Story

You may have noticed a pattern with many, many of the Weapon Manufacturer's latest releases.

They're mostly outdated. Weapons of old. Surely not the most efficient choices against zombies - there are far more modern and adaptable weapons to choose from. Yes, the Luger P08 does have its upsides. Like many other weapons of war, it was built to be accurate, reliable, easy to manufacture and clean. It's not all bad. In fact, it's a pocket sniper!

But, simply put... Most modern blueprints were destroyed in the wake of the apocalypse, and all that remains are the guns of old - preserved in hundreds of history books and museums alike.

So we're stuck with this, the Luger P08, R-Brain Hardwork hopes it will please.


  • You should try to aim for headshots with this weapon to get one-shot kills.
  • Use this secondary to pick off enemies from afar.
    • The Luger P08 can be great against Edgars trying to grab you from afar.
    • The Luger P08 is also useful against Leapers from afar.
    • Try to conserve ammo. It is unlikely you will use it to pick off a Brute from afar.
      • It is recommended to wear armors that grant magazines, such as the Bulldozer I, to increase ammo capacity.
  • The recoil is pretty high, even at hipfire. Take your time between each shot.
  • Do not treat the Luger P08 as a panic weapon. Spamming it will likely lead to you missing most of your shots.
  • This weapon pairs very well with the M249 using the Hipfire attachment, since it can take out those zombies just out of range of your M249.
    • It also fares well with any automatic, aside from the Minigun, due to their relative inaccuracy.
  • This weapon is great in Free For All because of the long range.
    • The Luger P08 pairs well with shotguns (such as the Shotty 12) to deal with out of range mobs.
