Mauser C96 side view BOII

The Mauser C96 is the starting pistol in the Origins zombies map included with the Apocalypse downloadable content for Call of Duty: Black Ops II.

The Mauser C96 performs nearly identically to the M1911. It has very weak damage (taking multiple bullets to kill a single zombie even on the first rounds, though it seems to be slightly stronger than the M1911 as it kills in two magazines rather than three at round 3), medium firecap, a magazine of eight rounds and slight recoil.

When Pack-a-Punched via the Pack-a-Punch Machine, it becomes the Boomhilda. It fires laser bolts with extremely high damage, and it gains an increased magazine, an ACOG Scope and a Suppressor.

  • "Boomhilda" is a reference to the Germanic mythological story of Brynhildr. However, it may also be a reference to the Mauser C96's nickname "broomhandle".
  • It is possible to carry a Boomhilda, and a Mauser that has been dug up. However when the second Mauser is Pack-a-Punched, the Boomhilda carried by the player will only receive more ammo, and the player loses their secondary weapon.
