The PM-9mm is a standard handgun weapon featured in Uncharted: Drake's Fortune and Uncharted: Golden Abyss. It also makes several appearances throughout the Uncharted comic book series.


Uncharted: Drake's Fortune

The PM-9mm serves as the standard pistol for Nathan Drake in Uncharted: Drake's Fortune for the first half of the game. The PM's magazine holds 8 rounds, and the player can carry up to 40 rounds.

It is used as the starting weapon in the game, being used in the first chapter, "Ambushed," by Nathan Drake and his NPC ally, Elena Fisher. It appears as the Nate's only weapon if the player chooses a level from the chapter select menu (there are exceptions; such as if the plot has Drake wielding something else at that point). Elena carries a PM-9mm in her first two appearances in the game, Chapter 1 and Chapter 3.

The PM also serves as a main sidearm for Eddy Raja's pirates, the main enemies for the game's first half, using it along with Micro-9mms, Moss-12s and AK-47s.

The pistol becomes rare to find after Chapter 13, and its role as Nate's main sidearm is replaced in favor of the much powerful 92FS-9mm. The 92FS-9mm also replaces the PM-9mm as the sidearm of the game's enemies, with the role taken by Atoq Navarro's mercenaries.

Uncharted: Golden Abyss

The PM-9mm returns in Golden Abyss as a standard weapon. It is first found in Chapter 2: "No Prison Tats". It is used by several members of Roberto Guerro's army.


This is the first weapon you will ever pick up in the Uncharted series; it is reliable, but lacking in power, taking three shots to kill your basic pirate. It's ammo count also leaves much to be desired, but it has a very quick reloading time, making this a mere annoyance. Headshots are easy to score with this, but on crushing, it is soon outclassed and should only be used as a last resort, taking nearly six shots to kill a mercenary. Of course, at this point, you shouldn't be encountering it.


  • The Makarov PM uses a Warsaw Pact variant of 9mm ammo, 9x18mm rounds, as opposed to the more common round in the west, the 9x19 parabellum rounds. The 9x18mm is generally considered less powerful due to a smaller gunpowder charge, and indeed, the gun in Uncharted is less powerful than the 92FS-9mm.
  • The gun does not appear in Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, but it does appear on the cover art for the game (not the Japanese cover), which depicts Drake hanging off the train and dropping the gun in the process. However in the game, the gun Drake has at this point is actually the 92FS-9mm.
