The Akimbo Parabellum pistols are a primary weapon available in PAYDAY 2 that was added in Update #178.

Overview[edit | edit source]

Parabellum pistols can be dual-wielded in the primary weapon slot for their greatly increased damage output at the cost of precise aiming, stability and the opportunity cost of being unable to use other primaries.

All akimbo weapon modifications cost 40% extra than their normal price.

Summary[edit | edit source]

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • With a +1 Concealment Boost along with the Short Barrel would give the Akimbo Parabellum a staggering 32 concealment, ideal for making a dodge build with high concealment Grenade Launchers such as the Compact 40mm or China Puff 40mm

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Parabellum is based on the Luger P08 pistol, with its in-game name being derived from either the P08's alternate name (Pistole Parabellum), the name of the ammo type it fires (9x19mm Parabellum), or the Latin quote after which the 9x19mm cartridge was named ("Si vis pacem, para bellum" lit. "If you seek peace, prepare for war"). Incidentally, the Latin quote was also used as the motto of DWM, the manufacturer of the Luger in real life.
    • This also means the Parabellum is one of the few weapons in game to use a real life designation.
  • The Parabellum's damage is unrealistically high for a 9x19mm pistol, as it is on par with a .44 Magnum revolver, which is far more powerful in real life.
  • The Parabellum is the first pistol to be used entirely one handed and the second to be used with a technique other than the Weaver Stance, the first being the Peacemaker .45.
  • The Parabellum is the only non-revolver pistol that cannot be silenced, nor can it have any barrel extention attached in general.
