Review: P99 Handgun

P99 Handgun


First off, the P99 is amazing. At short range, it is a carnage machine, simply because of a relatively large magazine and a obscenely high rate of fire. It is less effective at longer ranges, but this goes for all the other pistols as well, excluding the Desert Eagle. It is very compact in size, with a sleek appearance thus, it doesn't take up much of the screen. It has good accuracy for a handgun, low damage (all though that is compensated by high firing rate), pretty good range, and amazing mobility (you have a move speed of 100% with this weapon).


  • The P99 has the highest rate of fire in the game, at 1200 rpm. 
  • It has a damage value of 49-17 depending on location of shot and range. Because of this, it's a 6-3 shot kill, which is extremely fast. With headshots it is a 2 shot kill. 
  • It is a medium range handgun. 
  • Its magazine size is 12 rounds with an 18 round magazine if you put extended mags on it as an attachment. This is very high for a pistol. 
  • The reload time is 1.23 seconds, which is also very fast.
  • The raise time is 0.53 seconds and the drop time is 0.56 seconds. 
  • It has average recoil.

I use this as my sidearm consistently with a primary as an L118a. This gun has never failed me I don't think it will fail me in the future. The downside of this weapon is the range. It is extremely effective in short to medium ranges but long range reduces it's damage. It is most effective in maps that have many tight gaps, corridors, and hallways such as Arkaden, Seatown, Hardhat, and Dome. It is somewhat ineffective in maps such as Resistance and Interchange.


Accuracy: 7/10
Range: 5/10
Damage: 2/10
Fire Rate: 10/10
Mobility: 10/10
Effectiveness: 8/10

Overall: 7/10

Pistols in MW3

The following is a list of the Pistols in Modern Warfare 3. For more accurate and detailed reviews, click on the weapon names. (Work in progress).


USP .45

The USP .45 is the first pistol that you have in your MW3 Pistol armory, and it is unlocked from the start.This is a great all around pistol, and is the default pistol for all "Regular" difficulty Spec Ops maps. 

The P99 is the fastest firing gun in the game. It can shoot as fast as you can pull the trigger. This gun is not unlocked from the start, it's unlocked at Level 11. Personally, this is my favorite sidearm.


The MP412 is one of the stronger pistols in the game. It kills quicker than it's predecessors, and has a decent ammo capacity for a pistol. I consider this weapon a mix between the .44 Magnum and the USP. 45. It is unlocked at Level 30.

.44 Magnum

The .44 Magnum is very similar to the MP412 in that they both are high power revolvers. The Magnum in MW3 is actually silver with a black handle, but I chose this picture to maintain the consistency of the post. This weapon is unlocked at Level 46.

Five Seven


The Five Seven is a very nice all-around handgun. With minimal recoil and a good rate of fire, this weapon kills very quickly. It is best known for it's fastest draw time, which beats any other handgun. It is unlocked at Level 58.

Desert Eagle


The Desert Eagle is the most powerful handgun/pistol in the game. It however, also has an obnoxiously high recoil level. As a result of this, It can only be effectively used with a slow rate of fire. This gun is best used in akimbo. It is unlocked at Level 76.


Hello, welcome to my blog. All right, so I have been playing Modern Warfare 3 for quite a while now, since i got it on its release date. And, I've been hearing lots of questions from various MW3 fans to provide walk-throughs, tutorials, information on how to level up faster, and other tips and tricks. So as a result, I decided to make this blog to provide all this information. I will be providing information about weaponry, reviews of every weapon in the game, maps, map strategies, special ops strategies, Juggernaut and Helicopter strategies, effective class loadouts etc. I know there is a popular modern warfare 3 blog already at http://my-call-of-duty-mw3.blogspot.com/ however that blog is primarily for information, whereas this blog will be for strategies.Thank you for reading, and feel free to post your own ideas as well.
