With Battlefield 1 now playable on Xbox One and PC, it's been discovered that the World War I shooter features the tiny Kolibri pistol.

It's the smallest production pistol in the world, according to Popular Mechanics. Only about 1,000 of the weapons were made, produced between 1910 and the start of World War I in 1914. Kolibri is German for "hummingbird." Click play in the Jackfrags video below (via IGN) to see it in action in Battlefield 1.

The Kolibri pistol in real life fires an extremely small three-grain bullet, traveling 650 feet per second. It's not very powerful, but can still take down an enemy. Jackfrags doesn't take down an enemy with the weapon in the video, but inflicts enough damage for a teammate to easily scoop up the kill.

It's not immediately clear how to unlock the Kolibri pistol in Battlefield 1. What is clear is how strange the tiny pistol looks in your hand in Battlefield 1. The reloading animation sequences really stand out.
