"A modern modification of the classic Makarov pistol. It comes with a polymer grip, a chrome slider, a silencer and a magazine holding 12 special 9x21mm SP-10 armor piercing rounds."
- — Description.
The PMM-12 is a pistol with good accuracy, low recoil, very high damage, below-average penetration, a moderately fast fire-rate, high mobility, a moderately fast reload speed, moderate damage fall-off, a good effective distance, a standard magazine size of 12 rounds, and a standard amount of reserve ammunition.
The PMM-12 features a built-in silencer which muffles the shot, conceals the muzzle-flash, and hides the player from the mini-map. Cosmetically, the PMM-12 also features a polished metal slide.
Despite the fact that the PMM-12's description says that the weapon has armor-piercing rounds, its ammunition actually has one of the lowest penetrations of any pistol in the game (though the penetration is still decent). The PMM-12 perhaps only has high penetration in comparison to the PM and the APS, which are both also from Set 1.
Because the PMM-12 is non-customizable, players who prefer using pistols with collimators (or optics) tend to dislike this pistol. However, the PMM-12 is one of the hardest-hitting pistols in the game, disregarding penetration. In fact, it has the second-highest damage-per-shot of any semi-automatic pistol (disregarding the TIS Desert Eagle), tied with the GSh-18 and behind the TT. Both of those pistols have more than double the penetration of the PMM-12, though.
The PMM-12 is currently unable to equip collimators (or optics). It is also unable to unequip its built-in silencer. Hence, the PMM-12 is notorious for being difficult to aim-to-sights with, due to its obstructive silencer getting in the way, a downside which cannot be alleviated by any means other than simply firing without aiming-to-sights.
Similarly to the Glock 17 DEVGRU, the PMM-12 is affected by silencer-related Gunsmith Skills, despite the fact that its silencer doesn't affect its statistics. The silencer doesn't affect the weapon's statistics due to the state of being pre-attached on a weapon without access to Weapon Customization or a W-Task.
The PMM-12 currently only has a dummy W-Task of 5 ProKills with no reward upon completion.
