The SIG Sauer P226 is a sidearm featured only in the single player of Medal of Honor (2010) and featured in Medal of Honor: Warfighter. The P226 is a full-sized, service-type pistol made by SIG Sauer. It is chambered for the 9x19mm Parabellum, .40 S&W, .357 SIG and .45 ACP. The P226 and its variants are in service with numerous law enforcement and military organizations worldwide. The Navy SEALs chose to adopt the P226 after a repetition of catastrophic slide failures with some issued Beretta M9s.
The P226 is Rabbit's sidearm of choice, operating it with and without a suppressor. In-game it is shown as having an 18+1 round capacity due to Mec-Gar's flush fit magazines. It has the highest magazine capacity of all the available handguns in-game.
This weapon is only available in campaign.

The SIG Sauer P226 serves to be Preacher's sidearm of choice, appearing both silenced and unsilenced. It is the only handgun to have the silencer or any attachment for that matter. It is the last weapon used in the campaign to kill the Cleric in Shut it Down. In Preacher's part of Bump in the Night, a silenced P226 must be taken from enemies to continue the mission. It becomes the first weapon for Preacher to escape and hunt down Sad Al Din, who killed Mother with a Glock 17. Strangely, when Preacher is fighting Sad Al Din, its suppressor disappears for unknown reason.
The SIG Sauer P226 is available in multiplayer as the standard sidearm for the Assaulter Class. It has the second largest magazine of the pistols, behind the Glock 18, and moderate damage. As a sidearm in multiplayer, the P226 is without any attachment and unable to be customized.
