An Obrez (Russian for "Sawed-Off") is a name commonly associated with extensively modified bolt-action rifles, cut down to a much shorter length. This practice, which usually involves removing all but the last 4-8 inches of the barrel, as well as much of the furniture, the front sights and the buttstock, results in a significantly lighter and more concealable weapon at the cost of accuracy and range, to be used in lieu of a handgun or purpose-built carbine. While the sawing-off of service rifles into improvised close-quarters weapons was observed on most fronts during World War I as the tactic of trench raiding became more common, the so-called Obrez is today perhaps most commonly associated with the Russian Civil War.
— In-game description
The Obrez Pistol is a weapon introduced in Battlefield 1: In the Name of the Tsar expansion for all infantry classes.
It is functionally similar to the Mosin-Nagant M91, but lacks its furniture, barrel, and ability to mount attachments. Due to its shortened barrel, it inflicts less damage, but may be able to kill in one shot within it's "mini-"sweetspot of 5 meters or with a close-range headshot.
Similar to the Mosin-Nagant, the Obrez has a different reload animation for all possible numbers of bullets the magazine has left.
- Reloading with four bullets in the magazine has the player character place one bullet in.
- With three, the character puts in two bullets with one swift motion.
- With two, the character puts in three bullets with one swift motion.
- Reloading with one bullet remaining shows the character ejecting the final round and performing a stripper clip reload.
- Reloading from empty is a standard stripper clip reload.
- When operating the bolt after firing, the player character may either position the gun vertically or sideways to pull the bolt, the two animations being played at random.
