The PM63 is used extensively by the Spetsnaz in the campaign level "Executive Order." The weapon is found specifically during the assault phase on the launch facility. It can be found with Extended Mags, Dual Wield, or with no attachments, but never with any camouflage pattern, unlike some of the AK-47s found on that level. In "Numbers", a PM63 with Dual Wield can be found in the first weapons cache, but nowhere else in the level. The PM63 also makes a brief appearance in the level "Crash Site" in the hands of the Soviet Spetsnaz, who exclusively use it in that mission.
The PM63 can be purchased at level 29.
The PM63 is a low damage per bullet submachine gun. In close quarters, the PM63 will deal 30 damage, necessitating a four shot kill, a one shot kill in Hardcore, or a three headshot kill. The PM63 will decrease in damage linearly to 20 damage, necessitating a five shot kill, a two shot kill in Hardcore, or a four headshot kill.
The PM63 only has a subset of attachments available. The weapon can not be suppressed, and there are no optical attachements available. Luckily, the PM63 offers user-friendly and clear iron sights.
Extended Mags will increase the capacity of the weapon from 20 rounds to 30. This attachment greatly benefits the weapon, as the short magazine of twenty rounds is one of the weapon's key weaknesses. However, the player will not receive increased starting ammunition unless paired with Scavenger Pro.
The Grip decreases the recoil of the PM63, making it more versatile weapon overall and allowing for a better medium range, and to some extend, long range performance. The Grip is probably the most versatile attachment for the weapon, as it's the only one with no direct downsides.
Dual Wield will grant you two PM63's, for double the close range power. However, the player will lose the ability to aim down the sights and the encounters must be limited to very close quarters only. This will greatly decrease the versatility of the weapon.
Rapid Fire increases the rate of fire of the PM63 from 937 rounds per minute to 1250, making for a more deadly weapon up close. This comes with a cost of increased ammo consumption and recoil, making Scavenger and Sleight of Hand almost essential for prolonged use.
The PM63 appears in Zombie Mode and is available from the wall for 1000 points. Its high rate of fire and decent power make it good for the early rounds, however its small magazine and low ammo reserve are liabilities, even in the early rounds, as it drains ammo quickly. Other SMGs, such as the MPL, AK-74u, MP-40 and the MP5K are generally more popular due to their larger ammo supply at the same cost, but the PM63's faster rate of fire makes it better for close range.
When Pack-a-Punched, it becomes "Tokyo and Rose". Tokyo and Rose is Dual Wielded, effectively doubling the magazine size. However, like every Dual Wielded weapon, the player can no longer ADS, and the large spread means that most shots will not hit the target, unless dangerously close, hence it is recommended to buy Deadshot Daiquiri if one plans to use these guns. Ammunition is drained at double the rate with these weapons, and due to its aforementioned weaknesses, is often ignored in the Zombies game mode, in hopes of obtaining more reliable weapons.
