The PPD-40 is an early Soviet submachine gun. It is almost a direct copy of the German MP 28. It fires the 7.62x25mm Tokarev cartridge giving it a controllable recoil and is a useful weapon at close ranges.
- The PPD is the most inaccurate SMG in the game, so it's recommended to use the badge Pointer Quick Fire to engage enemies in close quarters.
- It may be advisable to buy the P-41 ammo type, as it increases the accuracy and stability in exchange for your ability to kill in 4 shots at close range.
- Don't underestimate this gun, with 71 rounds in the magazine can provide suppressive fire to keep the enemies in cover while you or your team mates get closer to finish them.
- As with all the other SMG's, you should never engage in long distance combat. Only engage the enemy if they are in range.
