"This rugged .45 caliber pistol is a classic, but fitted with a custom grip."
— In-game description

The 1911 TACOPS is a handgun featured in Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege. It was introduced in the Operation Grim Sky expansion pack and is available for use by the GSUTR Operator Maverick and Garda ERU Operator Thorn.


The 1911 TACOPS has a slightly weaker baseline damage than its Marine Corps counterpart and is more comparable to the .44 Mag Semi-Auto in terms of damage. As a handgun of above-average power, it can take down Light Armored Operators in 2 shots at its optimum range, with an additional bullet (3 shots) to kill Medium and Heavy Armored operators. Even after damage drop-off, this pistol can still kill both Light Armored and Medium Armored Operators in 3 shots, with Heavy Armored Operators requiring 4 in total.

The above-average damage and superior damage dropoff however, come at the price of a small magazine capacity and a higher-than-average recoil similar to that of the Q-929. The use of a Muzzle Brake is recommended.


  • Above-average damage per shot
  • Mild damage dropoff
