Two Variants of the Howdah Pistol are featured in Battlefield 1.
Unusually, the Howdah Pistol has a higher rate of fire than the Gasser M1870, mostly because of the extremely long reload for that pistol. The Howdah Pistol fills the role of medium-damage, medium rate-of-fire pistol for the Assault kit.
The Howdah Pistol Sweeper variant appears in both the singleplayer and multiplayer of Battlefield 1. It differs from the normal variant in that it essentially functions as a miniature shotgun due to its higher spread and circle aim sights. Visually the Sweeper only slightly difference from its counterpart.
The Howdah Pistol Sweeper briefly appears in the singleplayer campaign chapter The Runner of the mission The Runner. It can be found outside a house below the castle in a weapon crate on the far western side of the map when heading to the palace to get the frontline report. It one of two only available sidearms in the mission and can be used to unlock the Drip Gun (Codex Entry).
The Standard variant appears in Multiplayer
The Sweeper variant was available in the Alpha trial of the game for the Assault kit. For unknown reasons, it was cut from the final version of the game, though oddly there is a legendary skin for it in Battlepack Revision 5.
