Main article: VP91Z

A semi-automatic, civilian version of the Heckler & Koch Volkspostole 91,[1] the successor to the West German VP 70. Designed in 1991, its high capacity and good performance made it a staple sidearm of modern warfare. Although it's a West German design, enough units were imported into the United States to make it readily available. Desert Rangers in particular liked it enough to adopt it as a standard sidearm.


The weapon generates alerts enemies (generates noise) in a 18 unit radius.

A very basic, entry-level pistol. Outclassed by pretty much any subsequent pistol or revolver.


Starting weapon for Rangers with Handguns.


  • Manufactured by Heckler & Koch, the civilian VP91Z is a variation on the West German design (the VP70), with an 18 round magazine. It's the standard sidearm of the Desert Rangers along with the M1911A1 .45 Pistol.[2]
