The PKP Pecheneg is found wielded by Russian soldiers and Africa Militia members. It is one of Price’s starting weapons in “Dust to Dust”, and is equipped with a Red Dot Sight.
The PKP Pecheneg is the main weapon for Juggernauts both in the Campaign and Special Ops.
The PKP Pecheneg is unlocked at level 18 in Multiplayer. The weapon has medium recoil and damage. Its iron sights are open but rather small, making the optical attachments somewhat favorable. Still, it is manageable to fire fully automatically at close range targets, but burst firing is essential for long ranges unless the Kick proficiency or Grip is used, in which case it can be used full-auto at medium ranges fairly easily; if choosing optics, choices that do not zoom in a lot, like the Red Dot Sight, are better with the recoil. If the player is more comfortable with an ACOG sight, though, that can sometimes be helpful as well, especially at mid-range. The Rapid Fire attachment used with the Grip makes the PKP extremely deadly at close-mid range, but 3-5 round bursts are recommended for longer ranges.
The PKP Pecheneg is one of the two LMGs (the other LMG is the M60E4) that cannot be used with the Heartbeat Sensor.
