Gameplay articles:

A scaled-down M72 Gauss rifle, the PPK-12 is a German weapon. Although it is used without the stock and features just three conductive stages, the pistol is nevertheless extremely powerful, retaining its big brother's range and penetrative power, at the expense of sheer damage. It is still a respectable weapon in the hands of a competent shooter, capable of defeating any armor.[1][2]
