The M1911A1 is a semi-automatic pistol. It offers excellent battle characteristics such as high damage, good range and a decent rate of fire. The weapon does have a small magazine capacity of just 7 rounds, however it makes up with an extremely short reload duration.
The weapon has an increased damage multiplier to the head, arms, and legs, making it effective in nearly any situation.
The weapon has a strange mix of extremely high damage drop but high damage minimum, making it less effective than competitors at medium range, but more effective at very long range.
