Story and Terrorist Hunt
The 6P41 is the only light machine gun used by the White Masks. The weapon is only seen being used by Bombers during Article 5 and the last wave of a Protect Hostage mission in Terrorist Hunt, as well as the introductory video to Article 5.
The PKP "Pecheneg" is a general-purpose machine gun manufactured by TsNIITochMash. 6P41 is the designation of the weapon given by the GRAU Index. It currently exists in two variants, with the second one being a bullpup conversion manufactured by Zenit. The bullpup variant offers less weight, a new compensator, an improved trigger, and a Picatinny rail on top to attach tactical modules.
In-game, 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.
- Previously, the 6P41 in-game held one in the chamber, when in reality, it fires in an open bolt configuration, meaning that one in the chamber would be impossible. This has since been patched.
