"The time-tested Pistolet Makarova is still used by Russian special forces due to its widespread availability, exceptional reliability, moderate weight, compact size and no shortage of 9?19mm PM rounds. Dealing low damage is its only drawback."


The PM is a tier 1 handgun. Every player starts with the PM when they first join Contract Wars.


The PM is a decent early game pistol for new players. It features very high accuracy, medium firerate, relatively low recoil and an outstanding mobility for a free pistol. However, it has very low damage, range, reload speed and magazine size, making it tricky to be used effectively by new players. The PM serves as a very cheap and effective tool for mobility advantage in early levels, allowing users to cover large distance while carrying primary weapons with no mobility skill. However, it is greatly underwhelming in later games as more powerful pistols with higher mobility supersede it like Glock 17 and Glock 18.


"Makarov pistol equiped with a laser pointer and PBS for easier targetting. More balanced version of a pistol with the necessary properties for the quiet special operations."


Achieving 20 HeadShots with the PM will unlock the W-Task. The PM with its W-Task equipped is renamed to the PM SpetsNaz, which has a silencer and laser pointer attachment. However, currently, all new players who join Contract Wars will also receive the W-Task for free. It is not recommended to use to W-Task version of the PM, since it will significantly hinders mobility while providing virtually no tactical advantage.
