Longest damn codex. Took all week of the grindiest play in bf1. Round after round of domination but I finally have it. It comes with some great ww1 m1911 stories. I hope to God there isn't another elite codex for a handgun. Don't punish me DICE

    Well done, I'm nowhere near any of the new elite codices.

    This one will take me some time .. I maybe have 1000 kills with ALL handguns combined and more than 1000 hours played ..

    Some tips, besides playing Domination?

    Pistol only server maybe?

    Gewehr 95 Scout, body shot with the rifle then quick switch to pistol. I've had 20+ sidearm kills in CQ matches on a number of occasions using that setup :)

    Sorry did all codexes but I’m not going to torture myself for this 1. Maybe I’ll put it on scout setup and get it by the time bf6 comes out

    500 kills with a sidearm is indeed kind of sadistic by Dice.

    Especially since your previous kills from before the patch don't count.

    I just hope there are still pistol only servers around.

    At the moment I'm trying to get all the dog tags with the Tanker/Pilot weapons which works well with the M1911 since some of them behave similarly to the M1911.

    500 is a good level I would say. It’s an all kit sidearm and playing pistol finnisher get you tons of sidearms kills.

    I got around 16.000 kills with sidearms and I never play Scout... they are extreamly powerful

    500 with MP18 or any other SMG/LMG/Rifle is much easier .. I am on 400 plus with MP18 without even trying since the patch, but not even at 50 with M1911 .. I never need a sidearm, all enemies are already dead before I empty my clip with main weapon ..

    I think 200 kills with a sidearm would have been enough for elite codex, if you compare it too the 500 with the other weapons.

    But I will get there, will just take some time .. just have to think about best strategy to get them, like pistol only server or maybe play some more small game modes, I seem to use a sidearm more on those games.

    Funny how people demanded such things to be added, we got the first bunch and that was it. Now suddenly mp18 and m1911 outta nowhere?

    It'd be fine if the hitreg wasn't pure trash

    I must say that is also a thing that makes 500 kills with a sidearm a lot more difficult ..

    I fix this by playing OOR, I have a perfect higher ping on North America servers, where the Netcode doesn't compensate for my very low local ping and I have double the number of hit regs.

    I already had 500 kills with the M1911 before they added the codex. Too bad it doesn't work retroactively, but I don't think I'll bother to be honest. Won't have time before BFV arrives

    500 pistol kills take around 2 weeks to get just playing normal and lay 20% focus on those 1911 kills. No need for pistol servers or Scouting.

    I keep pushing instead of waiting for reloads. Id you are agressive it get u tons of pistol kills.

    If you like the assault class maybe pick a low ammo capacity primary like a shotgun or the RSC SMG, you'd be surprised how fast your sidearm kill will go up when you need to finish off a opponent. You will still be able to storm the trenches and blow up tanks whilst continue to use your go to class and working towards unlocking the codex.

    Sounds like a plan to do after I have those last 100 MP18 kills for that Elite codex, will give it a try, thanks :)

    This is a great method it’s what I do with the obrez course I also use that thing as a primary

    Same here. I finally unlocked this one yesterday, and unlocked my 311th (final) one today with the 10 Shock Operations. The M1911 kills took several days for me of playing mostly pistol-only. But, at least that was the best sidearm if you have to go that route. I found the peacekeeper 25 headshots hidden codex to be more annoying than 500 MP1911 kills though.

    Yes. They added it with the SHock Operation update last month. Same issue here, I had 15 services stars on my Doughboy M1911 and several on the other 3 variants, as well. Of course they don't make those retroactive, so had to get 5 more. :(

    The M1900 shotgun is a lot of fun, if you like salt try the slug and watch the hate mail come in as you snipe people with a shotgun.

    I can verify that the m1900 slug causes salt. 150m kill with it as well as taking down two planes with it
