Call of Duty: Modern Warfare RemasteredEdit
- "Fully automatic with high power. Effective at medium to long range."
- — Weapon description
The PKM features a 100-round belt, similarly to the other belt-fed light machine guns available in the game. Like the M60E4 and the Bered MK8, its damage drops off over range, making it a 3-4 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 one. The range is very high, so most engagements on a majority of maps should fall within effective range for the typical player. Reload speeds are also slightly faster than that of other belt-fed LMGs at 8 seconds instead of 10, though 8 seconds is still very slow. The rate of fire, however, is fairly low.
