@marksmanmax “Tbh thank god the M45 and M1911 have way higher damage. They were completely pointless in Ins2014 with AP ammo.”
See I don’t view it like that because to me it was just a use what ever gun you love best which was one of the things I loved best about Insurgency 2014 lol.
Well, everything's viable since every gun had high lethality, but some guns were better than others still. I still often run an M45 / M1911 if I'm not planning on using AP ammo on it, and occasionally just to dick around I'd run an M45 / M1911 with HP lol.
Just one more side note one of my absolute favourite things about Insurgency 2014 was the fact that I never felt I was even slightly at a disadvantage because of the weapon I chose (even if that was only thanks to AP rounds)...
Yeah, but that's because AP was broken. A Makarov /w AP did more damage to the chest than a FAL without AP. No joke.

^ Is just being ridiculous about the M45 to be honest.
I'm a nerd, so I love knowing the numbers lol. I still wouldn't call it being "ridiculous". I want every gun to have a purpose.
The M9 had 16 rounds in the magazine, the M45 hit much harder.
76 damage as opposed to 60. Not that much of an increase. Not only that, but most of the damage in Ins2014 comes from damage multipliers, not raw damage. If both an M9 and an M45 had AP, the M9 actually does more torso damage than the M45.
Granted, putting AP in the M9 made it beastly which wasn't a good gameplay choice.
AP in anything was good lmao. Definitely an overpowered attachment, though.
However, how often do people spend four points on their sidearm?
There's a lot of people in Ins2014 who did exactly this. Hell, as an Ambush player, pistol-only was a pretty large meta.
...the choice between the M45 and M9 is a very close one.
Not really, though. Of course, you don't have to be a stickler and you can just use whatever the fuck you want, but from a raw gameplay perspective:
-> Take the M45 if you don't plan on buying AP ammo. It's better when using FMJ / HP.
-> Take the M9 if you're buying AP.
I still use both (as well as the Makarov and even the Model 10) but the M45/1911 still was underpowered.
