FN P90

The P90 in reality.

The P90 is a Personal Defense Weapon made by FN Herstal, a Belgian military small arms producer. Introduced in 1990, it was sold to Saudi Arabia. Soon after, the weapon became popular with defense forces in over 40 countries, such as the United States Secret Service. The PS90 is a variant available for civilian purchase and use.

Battlefield 2Edit

"The P90 was developed specifically as a PDW for vehicle crew such as tank drivers. The P90 has very good power for its size and uses an SS190 round. It features a polymer stock with downward ejection of spent cases"
— In-game description

The P90 is the Tier Two unlock for the Anti-Tank Kit in Battlefield 2. The same weapon is also available to the EU Anti-Tank class in Euro Force. Although it was underwhelming when first introduced, a later patch greatly increased the rate of fire. It has slightly greater stopping power than the other SMGs thanks to the 5.7x 28mm cartridge it uses. It has a 50 round magazine, which is slightly more than the MEC's PP-19.


Battlefield Play4FreeEdit

The P90 is a weapon featured in Battlefield Play4Free and is available through the in-game store for the Engineer Kit upon reaching level 3. It features a longer range than the PP-2000 and the best accuracy for an SMG, as well as a 50-round magazine that makes the weapon a life-saver in close quarters where the weapon really shines. Only one spare magazine is given to the player, however, which makes Extra Magazines almost a must-have when using it.

Having more rounds than most weapons as well as better accuracy allows a user to spray bullets and still hit their target at close range. Despite having a longer range than the PP-2000, the weapon's intrusive iron sights make it better for close range engagements. Long range kills are not completely out of the question, however, but the player will need to use short bursts to control where their shots hit.

Once a player reaches level 3, the P90 can be bought for 150 PF4 Credits for a day or 17,500 PF4 Credits to have forever. It can also be bought with 39 P4F Funds for a day, 99 P4F Funds for a week, 289 P4F Funds for a month, or 749 P4F Funds to have forever.


Battlefield 3Edit

"Developed in Belgium as a Personal Defense Weapon for vehicle crews, Special Forces and Counter-Terrorist groups the P90 is a compact and capable weapon system. The three forward rails allow an operator to mount a wide variety accessories and the 5.7x28mm special armor piercing ammunition is fired at nearly rifle velocity. Standard with a 50 round magazine the P90 is capable as an offensive CQB weapon for highly mobile personnel."
— Weapon description

The P90 is an all-kit weapon featured in Battlefield 3.


The P90 is seen in the hands of GIGN squads during the mission Comrades.


The P90 appears in the two missions, Drop 'Em Like Liquid and The Eleventh Hour used by GIGN forces. It is only obtainable by the player in The Eleventh Hour.


The P90 is unlocked at level 40, with 50+1 rounds per magazine. The P90 has a high rate of fire and moderate recoil, and shares similar iron sights to the PDW-R and the Mk11 Mod 0. The P90, PP-19 and UMP-45 are the only PDW's that do not unlock the Extended Mag attachment, but instead gain the Flash Suppressor.

While the P90 draws advantage of a high magazine capacity, a rate of fire of 900 RPM, and a low hipfire spread, the damage of each individual bullet is low compared to other weapons, especially it's minimum damage which, along with the MP7, is the lowest of any weapon in the game, requiring 9 shots to the torso to kill a player at long range. However, the low damage is effectively countered with the high rate of fire, stellar controllability, and moderate accuracy.


Battlefield 4Edit

The P90 is a weapon featured in Battlefield 4.


The P90 is Hannah's primary weapon, and is carried by her throughout the campaign. The P90 can be found in South China Sea by the player as a Collectible, to the West of hatch G-46 in the red-lit room. It is equipped with a HOLO, Heavy Barrel and Tri Beam Laser. It sports an Atomic Urban finish.

Completion of the Peace Maker assignment in the singleplayer campaign will unlock the weapon for use in multiplayer.


Compared to its counterpart from Battlefield 3, the P90 performs almost identically but with a higher recoil, which limits it use to medium range, if the player is unable to control the weapon's high firerate along with the muzzle climb.

In the hands of a skilled user however, the P90 is a versatile weapon, ideal for close quarters combat or when combating hostiles when repairing a friendly vehicle.

"The P90 is a compact but powerful firearm designed for special forces and counter-terrorist groups. The 5.7x28mm cartridge is smaller than other rounds, allowing more in one magazine."
— In-game description

The P90 is a weapon featured in Battlefield Hardline. It is a purchasable weapon for the Criminal Mechanic, and is equipped by default with a laser sight and Heavy Barrel.




  • When the P90 is equipped with a Heavy Barrel in either Battlefield 4 or Battlefield Hardline, its appearance changes to that of the longer barreled civilian PS90.
  • The P90 has used a different iron sight in each of its appearances excluding Battlefield 2, where the stock red dot sight is used instead.

Battlefield 2Edit

  • Battlefield 2 is the only game in the Battlefield series to feature the P90's integrated red-dot sight.

Battlefield 3Edit

Battlefield 4Edit

BF4 P90 accesory

  • The P90 is featured on Virgo dogtag, used by Hannah.

Battlefield HardlineEdit
