"9mm AR platform PDW, customized to offer Full-Automatic fire. Equipped with Drum magazine."
— In-game description

The PDW9 is a submachine gun featured in Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege. It was introduced in the Operation Velvet Shell expansion pack and is available for use by the Operator Jackal.


The UDP9 is a 9mm personal defence weapon developed by Angstadt Arms.

In-game, the PDW9 behaves similarly to the MP5 in terms of damage and rate of fire. Major differences include its 50 round drum magazine, which allows engagement with multiple Defenders in a firefight, and its relatively high damage for a submachine gun. This proves the PDW9 to be very effective at close range engagements.


  • High magazine capacity.
  • Good damage even at highest damage drop-off.
  • Easy recoil control.


  • Slow reload.
  • Relatively low damage per shot.
