The ACP-C2 is equipped with self-illuminating sights that provide a tactical advantage in low light conditions.

The ACP-C2 is a .45 handgun used by both the AAF and Altian government loyalists, as well as in limited numbers with the FIA in ArmA 3.


The ACP-C2 is a semi-automatic handgun chambered to fire the .45 ACP round.

It loads from 9 round magazines and can attain a fire rate of up to 400 rounds per minute, with a muzzle velocity of 280 m/s. The ACP-C2 cannot mount optical sights, but supports muzzle attachments and has a compact underbarrel rail that can be fitted with a flashlight.


While it might not be the hardest hitting sidearm, the .45 ACP round is nothing to scoff at in close quarters.

Serving as the standard-issue sidearm of all AAF troopers and some FIA guerillas, the ACP-C2 is primarily used as a backup weapon for close quarters combat and, like most other pistols has an effective range of just 50 metres and no more.

Though it's classified as a light pistol, it fires the same .45 ACP round shared by its heavy NATO counterpart.

Compared to both its heavy and light counterparts used by NATO forces, the ACP-C2 has a lower muzzle velocity as opposed to the former while also having the smallest magazine size compared to the latter. In fact, it has the smallest magazine capacity out of all the semi-automatic pistols aside from CSAT's Zubr revolver.

Altogether, these drawbacks essentially make the ACP-C2 the least useful semi-automatic sidearm of all, with its only upside being that it is slightly more accurate than the 4-five. However, even this is somewhat redundant given that sidearms are utilised at very close ranges in almost every situation to begin with, which renders this advantage null.


  • The ACP-C2 is based on a mixture of several real-world variants of the "Custom" series of handguns designed by Kimber Manufacturing (more specifically both the "Custom Covert II" and "Desert Warrior" models).
    • In addition, it shares some elements from the "Rail Gun" handgun designed by Colt, another arms manufacturer also based in the United States.
    • All of these real-world handguns are in-turn based on the "M1911" handgun (also originally designed by Colt) that was featured in previous games in the series.
