The MP18 in real life.

The MP18 is a German submachine gun designed by Hugo Schmeisser and manufactured by Theodor Bergmann. It was among the first practical submachine guns used in combat. It was introduced to the German Army in 1918 during World War I. Although production ended in the 1920s, it was used as a basis for many future submachine guns and was in service all the way up to the end of World War II by Germany, Japan and China.

Battlefield 1942Edit

The Mp 18 is a weapon featured in Battlefield 1942, issued to the Imperial Japanese Navy and Red Army Medic kits. It has a 32 round magazine, a high rate of fire, medium damage, low recoil and low accuracy. It can kill in 5-8 shots. Although having low recoil, it has relatively bad accuracy can make it very difficult to use for longer ranges, although shooting in 2 round bursts can keep consistent fire on a far away target. It is essentially a close quarters weapon.

— In-game description

The MP 18 is a weapon featured in Battlefield 1. for the Assault kit. A very balanced weapon, it is very easy to get kills with this weapon in close quarters, and aiming down the sights is usually not necessary in these conditions.


The MP 18 appears in the hands of German infantry during the campaign opening, Storm of Steel. The variant utilized is the Factory variant, but lacks a bayonet.


The MP18 is a primary weapon for the Assault kit. Its great hipfire accuracy provides the user with a great advantage over non-assault players when gas is present, as the ability to hip fire the MP18 accurately results in much more consistent kills than with other classes' weapons. Its low rate of fire and low recoil makes it an easy weapon to handle out to middle ranges, but conversely makes its time to kill rather slow. Three variants of the MP 18 are featured in multiplayer: Trench, Optical and Experimental.

The MP18 Trench variant is equipped with a bayonet, and is the starting primary weapon of the Assault Kit.

The MP18 Artillery variant is equipped with a globe sight in addition to the bayonet. It offers a marginal increase in aimed accuracy at the cost of reduced hip-fire accuracy when compared to the Trench version.

The MP18 Experimental variant of the MP18 differs from the other two variants in that it features a three round burst as its only fire mode. This version grants increased accuracy and recoil control at the cost of reduced hip-fire accuracy. It is equipped with the same weapon modifications as the Artillery variant.
