"The OTs-33 Pernach is an automatic pistol designed to replace the APS within Russian special forces and paramilitary units. The Pernach was developed in 1995 by Igor Stechkin and later went into limited production at the KBP Instrument Design Bureau."


The OTs-33 Pernach is a premium tier 3 handgun.


The Pernach is one of few sidearms to have selective fire, meaning you can shoot with either semi-automatic or full-automatic modes. Its base stats are almost identical to the Enforcer, save for the reload speed and ammo capacity. Because of the faster reload, many prefer the Enforcer over the Pernach.

Compared to the Glock 18, another premium full-auto sidearm, its damage per second falls behind because of the sheer firerate that the Glock 18 sports. Another huge advantage the Glock has over the Pernach is that the Glock has the highest mobility in the game. Players, especially higher-leveled ones who aim for the head more often, use the Glock 18 the most.

Overall, the Pernach is a good choice for its role. The combination of full-auto and high magazine size makes makes it a choice as an emergency side-arm at close range or for pushing out to short-mid range once the main weapon runs out of ammo. The damage drop-off is punishing, and its range is limited as well, which is still standard for most sidearms.

There is currently no W-Task available for the OTs-33 Pernarch.
