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 the weakest cartridge currently in the game taking numerous bodyshots to take down an infected. Hunting animals is also not recommended as the .22 LR rounds are too weak for killing an animal in a reasonable amount of time (except for chickens as these are always 1 hit). With a 10 round mag and the weakest cartridge in the game the MK II is one of the worst pistols for PVP which makes it 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)
