Day of Defeat Wiki

The PIAT is an anti-tank weapon in the original Day of Defeat. It is only usable by the British.


The Projector, Infantry, Anti Tank (PIAT) Mk I was a British man-portable anti-tank weapon developed during the Second World War. The PIAT was designed in 1942 in response to the British Army's need for a more effective infantry anti-tank weapon and entered service in 1943.

The PIAT looks almost like a real-life PIAT used by British forces during WWII. Like the Bazooka and Panzerschreck, the PIAT will instantly kill on a direct hit on any part of the body. It deals a maximum of 127 damage, which is less than an explosive grenade, which deals a maximum of 138 damage.

The PIAT needs to be shouldered first before firing.



  • Unlike the Bazooka and Panzerschreck, real life PIAT is actually spring powered and not rocket powered.
