The Tokarev TT-33 is the Soviets' pistol of choice in Call of Duty: United Offensive. It has eight rounds in its magazine with mediocre accuracy and average damage. It is best used as a last resort or backup weapon, as it can do relatively high damage at close range. However, it suffers at distance.
This weapon's multiplayer stats are identical to its singleplayer stats. It can be a decent last resort weapon at close range, although it is inadvisable to use this weapon at distance. It can be valuable for a bolt-action user who needs to get through a tight space, since bolt-action rifles can be difficult to use in close quarters combat. This pistol will give the player enough power and the fire rate he needs to get through struggles alive.
The Tokarev TT-33 is the standard sidearm in the Soviet campaign. It has a slightly slower reload than other pistols when reloaded mid-magazine, but it has a fast empty reload. This sidearm is used mainly in the Soviet Red Army campaign as a starting pistol for each mission. It can occasionally be seen used by Soviet soldiers. It is not necessarily a bad weapon to use and can be particularly effective in close quarters, but the player should consider switching it for another weapon, especially on harder difficulties.
The Tokarev TT-33 is unlocked at level 21. The pistol has the lowest visual recoil of all sidearms in the game, combined with decent damage (equal to the Colt M1911, Walther P38, and Nambu), making it a very effective sidearm. Although most players tend towards the .357 Magnum due to its higher damage if a Tokarev is used correctly it can squeeze off enough rounds to take down a player before the Magnum's recoil settles after its first shot. Since the Tokarev is the final pistol to be unlocked before the Magnum, some players tend to believe it is more powerful than the first three, but this is not the case, as all the pistols excluding the .357 Magnum in Call of Duty: World at War do exactly the same damage.
In the campaign, the Tokarev TT-33 appears only in two levels of the Russian campaign, "Wrecking Crew" and "Nuclear Secrets" as the secondary starting weapon. It has eight rounds per magazine, fast reload and high power, capable of killing an enemy in one or two shots at any range; however it has a somewhat high recoil and can be fired so quickly that a magazine can be emptied very quickly, though spare ammo is generous (160 rounds).
In multiplayer the Tokarev TT-33 is the standard sidearm of the Russian faction, featuring an eight round magazine, fast reload and medium recoil: the damage it is lower than in singleplayer but it's still deadly at both close and long ranges. It beats both the M1911 and the Webley in ammunition capacity, and when compared to the other eight-round magazine pistols, the Luger and the Nambu, the Tokarev TT-33 has the fastest reload.
The Tokarev TT-33, labeled "Tokarev" is used with a Flashlightattachment in the mission "Project Nova". The Tokarev's firecap is unnoticeable in this game, so it can be fired much faster than the one in Call of Duty: World at War's campaign. It can be obtained without the Flashlight attachment in "Project Nova" by downing a British Commando while escaping the ship; using the "give all" cheat will give both Tokarevs, one with and one without the flashlight, sharing their ammo. It's also used in the same mission by Lev Kravchenko to execute the German prisoners of war. It has the same model from Call of Duty: World at War, but seems more rusty and slightly covered in frost, like most weapons in the level.
