The PM-9mm serves as the standard pistol for Nathan Drake in the first half of Drake's Fortune. The PM's magazine holds 8 rounds, and the player can carry up to 40 rounds.
It is used as the starting weapon in the game, being used in the first chapter, "Ambushed", by Nathan Drake and his NPC ally Elena Fisher. It appears as Nate's only weapon if the player chooses a level from the chapter select menu, though there are exceptions, such as if the plot has Drake wielding something else at that point. Elena carries a PM-9mm in "Ambushed" and "A Surprising Find".
The pistol becomes rare to find after "Sanctuary?", and its role as Nate's main sidearm is replaced in favor of the much powerful 92FS-9mm. The 92FS-9mm also replaces the PM-9mm as the enemies' sidearm, with the role taken by Atoq Navarro's mercenaries.
The gun does not appear in Among Thieves, but does appear on the cover art for the game (not the Japanese cover). It depicts Nate hanging off the train and dropping the gun in the process. However in the game, the gun Drake has at this point is actually the 92FS-9mm.
Charlie Cutter uses the PM-9mm as principal weapon, but only in the single-player campaign.
This is the first weapon the player will ever pick up in the Uncharted series. It is reliable, but lacking in power, taking three shots to kill a basic pirate. Its ammo count also leaves much to be desired, but it has a very quick reloading time. Headshots are easy to score with this, but on Crushing difficulty, it is soon outclassed and should only be used as a last resort, taking nearly six shots to kill a mercenary. Of course, at this point, the player should not be encountering it.
