The Glock Model 18 was manufactured from Glock GmbH, an Austrian arms manufacturer. Its design is similar to it's Glock 17 cousin, containing fixed pistol ironsights. However, it has a trigger-group consisting of full-auto, semi-automatic, and safety. It chambers the 9x19mm Parabellum cartridge, and can hold an 18 round or a 33 round box magazine, among others.
The Glock 18 seen in Mirror's Edge is not a standard Glock 18. It instead uses a 24 round box magazine (as opposed to the standard 18 round box magazine), and has a ported barrel (A barrel and slide modification designed to force gunblast upwards, reducing overall recall) however the actual flash is missing for the ported barrel; instead of coming out of both the muzzle and port, it only comes out the model. It is likely that this effect was never finished, since the gun was cut from its main role and only put in the game as an easter egg.
Mirror's Edge Usage Edit
The G 18 (shortened term) in this game is automatic when the trigger is held down. This is useful to react against more than one enemy. When the trigger is pulled once, it is burst fire, allowing three accurate bullets to be fired. This weapon is more useful than the Colt M1911 because of the stats above and its larger magazine size. It is found on a single, alone CPF officer whilst being pursued by pursuit cops on the rooftops, on the chapter Pirandello Kruger.
- There are no other places where you can find this pistol aside from the sole encounter mentioned above, making it one of the rarest firearms able to be picked up in the game.
- This is because the Glock 18 was originally going to be Faith's own personal firearm, hense the customisation on said weapon. This can be seen on some early concept art.
