The Makarov appears often during the campaign as the main sidearm of the Red Army, being one of the main weapons in Vorkuta.
The Makarov is one of the three handguns unlocked when Create-a-Class is unlocked. It has the same damage as all other handguns except the Python, and has an eight-round magazine, which can be increased to 12 with the extended magazines attachment. In Gun Game, it is found with the Dual Wield attachment in the second tier. It is statistically identical to the M1911, except for an extra bullet in each magazine. However, the M1911 with extended mags has two more bullets in its magazine than the Makarov with extended mags.
