Yeah, I did a lot of editing, as I tried to write that after a 14 hour shift, so my brain is a little scrambled. But everything in my edited post is correct.
I hope...

Dude, doing anything for 14 hours straight, even sleeping, leaves me addled. I salute you for spelling "Chiappa" correctly.

Ultimately, it doesn't matter that much. Even if it were supposed to be a .357, doing more damage than the M60 at any range would still be ridiculous.

also called the "buttcheek" due to what the name means when translated.
"I'm just a loot whore."

It's a Chippa Rhino 40DS chambered in .357 Magnum. Here is the info blub:

Are you sure the in-game version, titled, suggestively, "SW40", isn't meant to be the version chambered in .40 S&W?


I think that would make it have the damage of the CZ-75 which would be completely useless.

I realize that the .40 S&W is not the most powerful cartridge ever to be fired from a revolver (I understand that it's known as the ".40 Short & Weak" in some circles).


That's just idiots being idiots, repeating what people who wanted the 10mm to take off said. The 40S&W has been becoming quite the popular round in law enforcement as of late.

The World Champion
would like to see a 10mm pistol but concedes the fact that such a gun would be the most powerful handgun in the game. just imagine having a 15 round G20 that does more damage than the Rex because the 10mm out preforms the 357.

Again, though, we all know that real-life bullet performance is only vaguely related to in-game statistics, if at all. The .40 S&W version of the CZ-75 should outperform the 9x19s, but it doesn't.

I didn't say it was wimpy (I think I went on to compare it favorably to another popular cartridge), I just meant that it's not as powerful, as, say, a .357 or a .44.

IN ANY CASE (and I'm looking at you, @FreddBoy), when I click on the SW40 in the loadout screen in Battlelog, the information pane reads, "AMMO TYPE: .357 MAGNUM". So, you're right! The choice of in-game name for this pistol is still totally mystifying. They should have gone the Brink route and called it "The Hippo" or something.

It does at long range, by quite a bit actually. That's where the CZ-75 really shines :)

The in-game name isn't mystifying at all, it has already been answered.

It's the SW40 because the Rhino it is modeled after is the 40DS.

40 comes from the barrel length, and the DS was changed to SW for copyright compliance. The fact that it even resembles .40S&W at all is purely coincidental.

Many of the weapons in the game have slightly altered names for the sake of copyright compliance, speculating on why they changed the name is rather pointless. Just call it artistic freedom.


FN57 = FN Five-seveN
SW40 = Chiappa Rhino 40DS
Compact 45 = H&K HK45 Compact
G18 = Glock 18
44 Mag = Taurus 44SS6
ACW-R = Remington/Bushmaster ACR (what the W is supposed to stand for is anyone's guess)
338-Recon = DTA SRS (Desert Tactical Arms (now "Desert-Tech") Stealth Recon Scout)
SRR-61 = CheyTac M200 Intervention.
PDW-R = Magpul PDR (Again with the W?)
AR160 = Beretta ARX-160

Those are all the ones I know off the top of my head. Some are slightly altered, some are generalized, some have letters added, and in the case of the SRR-61 is completely based on an abstract account. I think SRR-61 was the designation of a Jordanian regiment that used the M200...


Just be happy they can use a lot of the actual names and can get most of them pretty damn close in BF4. It's better than the old James Bond games where you are running around with a "DD44 Dostovei" but it's actually supposed to be a "Tokarev TT-33" or a "Klobb" instead of a "VZ-61 Skorpion".
All bike, all the time!

I don't know why I can't read the stats. I feel like an idiot; for some reason I thought the CZ-75 was 22-12.1 like the QSZ and the 57.

I know, I know. The SW40/40DS/.40S&W just seems like a weird set of mixed messages.

Quoted

PDW-R = Magpul PDR (Again with the W?)

My guess about the spurious Ws that crept in back in BF3 was that the PDR is intended to fill the PDW role, while technically firing a regular intermediate rifle round (and in Battlefield, it definitely falls into the PDW category), hence "Personal Defense Weapon--Rifle". I think the W in the ACR name followed suit because of the similar nomenclature on a weapon from a similar designer (wasn't the ACR originally developed by Magpul?): "Adaptive Combat Weapon--Rifle"; the pattern had already been established.
