The MP 18 is a primary weapon for the Assault class in Battlefield 1.

History[edit | edit source]

Designed by the Theodor Bergmann Abteilung Waffenbau, Maschinenpistole MP 18 was the answer to the realities of trench warfare. After the Luger P08 and Mauser C96 were found to be unsuitable for trench warfare, the MP 18 was developed as a brutal, efficient answer to the problem. It came too late to save the Empire from defeat, but made its mark during the Kaiserschlacht, its last offensive. It made its mark after the war in the various localized conflicts from South America, through Spain, to China, demonstrating the power of automatic weapons in close quarters combat.

Part of its widespread deployment was due to its ruggedness. The MP 18, chambered in 9x19mm Parabellum, fired from an open bolt and used a 32 round detachable magazine, giving it excellent firepower. Its bulk and weight (over 5 kg or 11 lbs fully loaded) guaranteed excellent accuracy even in automatic fire modes, while robust internals made it a reliable companion. The design directly inspired later weapons, such as the Lanchester submachine gun in Great Britain and the Soviet PPD-40, which evolved into the iconic PPSh-41.
