The Bodeo M1889 was an double-action revolver and the main service handgun of the Royal Italian Army from 1891 to 1910. In Italian service, the weapon was chambered in 10.35x22mm, and held six shots in the chamber. It was produced in two distinct variants - a model with an octagonal barrel and a folding trigger, for issue to enlisted men, and another manufactured in smaller numbers for the officers and NCOs, featuring a round barrel and a solid trigger guard.
Although the weapon was supplanted by more modern, semi-automatic handguns such as the Beretta M1915 during World War I, the Bodeo was not declared obsolete until the end of World War II. Additionally, the Bodeo was produced for the Spanish Army during The Great War, and utilized in the subsequent conflict by the Wehrmacht.
— In-game description
The Bodeo 1889 is a weapon featured in Battlefield 1. This revolver shares a special trait with the Assault's Gasser M1870 and the Support's Bull Dog Revolver for having an individual ejection and reload for each round. During reload, an ejection pin is pushed against empty casings, their slot to be refilled with a whole cartridge.
The Bodeo 1889 fills the role of high-damage, low rate-of-fire pistol for the Scout kit. The Bodeo 1889 is somewhat similar to its other gate-loading counterparts, but is much quicker to reload.
