The 4-five is a .45 handgun used in limited numbers by NATO forces in ArmA 3.

Overview Edit

The 4-five is a polymer framed, semi-automatic handgun chambered to fire the .45 ACP round.

It loads from 11 round magazines and can attain a fire rate of up to 600 rounds per minute, with a muzzle velocity of 380 m/s. The 4-five supports the MRD red dot sight designed exclusively for it, and can be mounted onto the nub just above the hammer. Along with muzzle attachments, the 4-five also has an underbarrel rail that supports being fitted with a flashlight.

The 4-five is classed as a heavy pistol and is often favoured for use by NATO officers and special forces due to the higher stopping power of its .45 ACP cartridge compared to NATO's standard-issue sidearm, which fires less hard-hitting 9 mm ammunition.

The primary downsides to the 4-five stem from its usage of the .45 ACP round, which has a lower velocity compared to the 9 mm cartridge used by the P07. This also means that the 4-five is heavier to carry while also having a much smaller magazine capacity (11 rounds versus the P07's 16 or 30 round magazines).

Trivia Edit

  • The 4-five is based on the real-world "FNX-45" handgun designed by FNH USA, an American division of the Belgium-based arms company FN Herstal.
    • Oddly enough, the in-game counterpart is only capable of using 11 round magazines despite its real-world version being capable of loading from either 15 or 10 round magazines.
  • The model itself appears to also have been ported for use in "DayZ", another title designed by Bohemia Interactive where it is called by its real-life manufacturer name as the "FNX45".
  • The 4-five was not initially included on ArmA 3's release. It would only be added with the release of the campaign's first episode as part of Game Update 1.04.
