The Makarov PM is a standard-capacity semi-automatic pistol. It is chambered in 9x18mm Makarov.
This is the most common gun in the entire game. Magazines spawn for it almost everywhere.
It is incredibly useful for shooting zombies as you are practically guaranteed to never run out of the easy to find magazines.
It is tied for weakest pistol with the PPK. It has one more round than the PPK, but is overall less accurate with shot groupings and has a much higher linear drop in velocity than the other pistols and revolvers. In fact, it's drop in velocity is at the same rate as a crossbow bolt, though the 9x18mm round has a much higher initial velocity. This results in lackluster damage even considering that it is a pistol.
The sights are simply average and are nothing to write about.
- A person who finds a Makarov and immediately dumps his entire magazine into a person with or without killing them has been termed a "MAK ATTACK!" You used to spawn with a Makarov in regular DayZ, which often led to fights on the coast between newspawns.
