Overview Far Cry 2 Far Cry 3 Far Cry 4 Far Cry 5 New Dawn

This article appeared in Far Cry 4

Appearing again in Far Cry 4, the 1911 returns as a sidearm-capable semi-automatic handgun.

"Standard-issue for the U.S. military for over 70 years, this dependable classic may look big and heavy, but it's got accuracy and power."

In-Game Description
Far Cry 4

The 1911 can be obtained by soldiers or rebels inside a vehicle by killing them or it can be bought in stores after the mission City of Pain. Oddly, Longinus gives it for free upon liberating 13 Bell Towers, while it can be obtained as early as the first encounter with vehicle enemies near the bell tower in the Prologue, and is rendered obsolete at the earliest point of free-giving (northern Kyrat).

It has the same stats as in Far Cry 3 but with a different appearance, and it becomes Ajay's weapon of choice during cutscenes from Shoot the Messenger onward. The 1911 is an effective pistol and one worth carrying early on, and unlike in Far Cry 3, it can mount an attachment, either being a Night Sight or an Extended Magazine. It is capable of killing a Royal Army Beheader in 2 shots up close and 3 at a distance.

"Take the 1911 and rig it for stealth with a suppressor, optics and reworked guts to land you this silent, accurate, and highly reliable sidearm."

In-Game Description
Far Cry 4

The Sandman is the signature version of the 1911 in Far Cry 4. It is unlocked only ownership of the game's season pass, at which point the weapon will be unlocked once the player can access the shops in the beginning of the game. It comes with a red dot sight and suppressor.

Trivia

  • The 1911 as it appears in Far Cry 4 is a Kimber Warrior.[1]
  • As in Far Cry 3 and Far Cry 5, the unused attachment rail appears during cutscenes when used by Ajay or NPCs, but at no point during actual gameplay.
  • Royal Army soldiers have this handgun in their holsters, they only use it while on vehicles however. Ajay still can use it through Gunslinger Takedown.
