The PKM is a light machine gun featured in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered

"Fully automatic with high power. Effective at medium to long range."
— Weapon description


The PKM was added on March 14th, 2017 with Operation Lion Strike. It becomes available at all levels once unlocked via the completion of the PKM Bounty.

The PKM features a 100-round belt, same as the other belt-fed LMGs available in the game. Like the M60E4 and the Bered MK8, its damage drops off over range, making it a 3-4 shot kill depending on distance. Equipping Stopping Power increases this to a 2-3 hit kill. At long ranges, scoring a headshot reduces the amount of bullets needed by 1. Its range is very long, so most engagements on a majority of maps should fall within effective range for typical players. Reload speed is also slightly faster than that of other belt-fed LMGs at 8 seconds instead of 10, though 8 seconds is still very slow, so Sleight of Hand is useful. The rate of fire, however, is fairly low, but faster than M60E4 and the STG-44. On paper, PKM has the best accuracy of light machine guns, it is more stable than M60E4 and RPD when firing.

The PKM has standard attachments of light machine guns, the gun works fine no matter the attachments are equipped or not.

Overall, the PKM is an attractive and versatile weapon that is worthy to buy if players are willing to spend extra money.
