The PP-19 is a weapon introduced in the Back to Karkand expansion. It has a 54 + 1 round magazine despite the game saying otherwise. The PP-19 is unlocked after completing the Familiar Territory assignment.
It has a fairly long reload time for a PDW, and due to its very low damage at range, is highly ineffective at longer ranges when used without a zoom sight. However, Its high rate of fire, large magazine and low recoil makes it highly effective at shorter ranges. However even at close quarters combat, the PP-19 is still outperformed by a lot of assault rifles, carbines and PDWs in terms of the time it takes to kill, as it deals the absolute lowest amount of damage of any firearm at close range, requiring minimum of 6 body shots to kill a target.
As of the December Soldier Upgrade, players will be able to equip on the PP-19 the Digital Woodland Camo by default and can also equip the Desert Stripe Camo once the PP-19 Specialist assignment is completed.
- In Battlefield 2, the PP-19 has identical iron sights with most other Kalashnikov weapons аpart from the AK-101 and a few others.
- The PP-19 deals the least damage at close range of any PDW but also has the largest magazine of any PDW, even with some other PDWs having Extended Magazines.
