PKP Pecheneg IRL.jpeg

The PKP Pecheneg (Russian: ПКП Печенег) is a modernized version of the PKM machine gun designed by TsNIITochMash to be more accurate with the use of a non-interchangeable air-cooled barrel while firing the same 7.62×54mmR round of the PKM. Named after a tribe of Turkic nomads who previously inhabited the steppes, as well as Moldavia and Wallachia, the Pecheneg is capable of mounting telescopic sights to further improve its accuracy over range. Unlike the PKM, the weapon's barrel is not detachable but can still use the same box magazines that can hold 100, 200, or even 250 rounds of ammunition.

The PKP is featured in several installments of the Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Franchise and is designated as the 6P41.

Siege[]

"Spetsnaz LMG, accurate in short to medium range. Capable of long range controlled fire."
— In-game description

The 6P41 is a light machine gun featured in Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege. It is available for use by Fuze and Finka.

Overview[]

The 6P41 is an ideal weapon for laying down suppressive fire with its high magazine. With a decent damage model and relatively controllable recoil pattern, this LMG can easily create choke points for enemies. The most significant downside of this weapon is the reload speed - it is the slowest of any weapon in the game, and leaves you exposed for 8.5 seconds.

Pros[]

  • High damage per shot
  • Negligible suppressor damage penalty
  • High magazine capacity

Cons[]

  • Slow rate of fire
  • Slow ADS time
  • Slow reload time

Learning Area[]

The 6P41 was the only light machine gun used by the White Masks. The weapon was only seen being used by Bombers during Article 5, Disarm Bomb and Protect Hostage missions in Terrorist Hunt, as well as the introductory video to Article 5.

"Spetsnaz LMG, accurate in short to medium range. Capable of long range controlled fire."
— In-game description

The 6P41 is a light machine gun featured in Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Extraction. It is available for use as the default weapon for Fuze and is unlocked for Finka at Operator level 6.

Overview[]

The 6P41 functions in the same maner as it's counterpart in Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege. It is ideal for defending mission objectives such as Triangulation or Sabotage. It is also useful for dealing rapid damage to rushing enemies or Tier 3 enemies and above who have larger pools of health. It features a decent damage model and relatively controllable recoil pattern.

Pros[]

  • High damage per shot
  • High magazine capacity

Cons[]

  • Slow rate of fire
  • Slow ADS time
  • Slow reload time

Trivia[]

  • Previously in Siege, the 6P41 in-game held bullet in the chamber. This has since been patched.
    • However, the mechanism of a PK machine gun actually works differently from other open bolt machine guns due to its rimmed cartridge. When the bolt reciprocates backwards, it extracts a cartridge out of the belt via its rim, and stores it in an intermediate position. As a result, when the machine gun is at rest with the bolt in the rear, there is still a cartridge stored independently from the belt. So in theory, the 6P41 should still have a +1 capacity, despite being an open bolt firearm.
    • Due to this, the reload animation for the 6P41 is also incorrect, as the operator works the charging handle before and after replacing the bolt. This would mean that the bolt would be moved to the rear before a new belt is loaded, and thus be unable to feed a round. Pulling the charging handle again would do nothing, since the bolt is already in the rear and the only way to send it forward is by pulling the trigger.
  • The 6P41 is incorrectly modelled with rimless cartridges, while the real machine gun would be chambered for the rimmed 7.62×54mmR cartridge.
