Semi-automatic, integrally-suppressed pistol, fed from a detachable magazine. Stealthy and lethal at short range. Uses .22 LR rounds. — In-game description

The MK II, is a semi-automatic integrally-suppressed handgun, chambered in .22 LR Rounds.


The MK II is one of the weakest pistols in the game, as the .22 LR is not the strongest cartridge. Taking at least 2 headshots to kill an infected and numerous bodyshots to take one down. Against animals for hunting is also not recommended as the .22 LR rounds are to weak for killing an animal reliably, except for chickens (as these are a 1 hit). As for other survivors, the MK II is one of the worst pistols in the game for PVP, with a 10 round mag and the worst cartridge makes it's a hard weapon to use effectively. The only upside being that every shot you fire has a great potential of applying the bleed effect. This means you can mortally wound a survivor and make him bleed out, as they can't bandage fast enough to stop the bleeding if you hit at least 5-7 shots.
(NOTE: This is against a player without armor, as armor gives you more protection)
