The Webley MK IV revolver is the British Army's sidearm of choice in Call of Duty: United Offensive. It has six rounds in its cylinder, has mediocre accuracy, and does average damage. Like all handguns, it is best used as a last resort or as a secondary weapon for a player using a bolt-action rifle when he must fight at a close range. It is the only starting weapon in "Train Bridge" and is used by Major Ingram when on the bike in the mission "Sicily 2".
This revolver is almost unique in that it does more damage in multiplayer than in the campaign. It has the slowest reload time and smallest ammunition capacity of the sidearms, but has a higher stopping power. However, it is still best used as a last resort, or if a bolt-action user needs to get through a tight space, as its damage suffers over long distance.
The Webley returns in Call of Duty 2; superficially, it is exactly the same as it is in Call of Duty: United Offensive. However, it is far more powerful in the campaign than the one in Call of Duty: United Offensive's campaign. It only appears once in the campaign. In the mission called "The Crossroads," the Webley can be only found at the beginning of the level on a table to the right of the player. Much more accurate than the Call of Duty: United Offensive version, it can kill in one-two shots, and is usually a one shot kill to the head. The only drawbacks are the obscure iron sights, and the long reload time, very limited ammo as well as recoil.
The Webley is still the standard-issue sidearm for the British Army's team in multiplayer. It is weaker than its earlier counterpart, but is still effective as a last-resort or a close-range handgun. It is equal in power to the other sidearms, whereas the Webley in the earlier game was more powerful than the other handguns, effectively negating the advantage of power.
The Webley reappears as the Mark 6 Webley Pistol, and is the main sidearm for the British faction. It is quite a powerful pistol, and can deal a one-shot kill at close range and a two-three shot kill at long range. However, it has less ammo than other sidearms, holding only six rounds in its cylinder with 120 spare rounds. Since the iron sights are a bit obstructive and unclear, many players prefer to hipfire with it.
