The Type 14 "Nambu" is an improved version of the Japanese-made Nambu pistol designed in 1925. The original pistol was designed by Kijiro Nambu in 1902. It saw mass production but was not standard issue to Japanese forces during Japan's Indo-China invasion and during World War II, but was a common private purchase for Japanese army officers.

5-6 shots to kill

In Battlefield 1943, the Type 14 pistol is the sidearm issued to the IJN Scout kit. It is a very weak weapon, requiring around 5-6 body shots to kill someone, has a high rate of fire and has a relatively long reload whilst only having a capacity of seven rounds, and that means the player can only afford to miss one shot. Therefore, it should only be used as a last resort weapon. A strategy to use with the pistol is to shoot an enemy with the Type 98 and, if the hit does not kill the enemy, pull out the Type 14 and use the cross hair dot to finish off the player.
Battlefield: Bad Company 2Edit
In Battlefield: Bad Company 2, the Nambu makes a brief appearance in the opening mission, Operation Aurora. It is only seen in the hands of Watanabe, and IJN soldiers in the Type 95 Kuroganes during the car chase segment. It is not usable by the player.
