- — In-game description
The M9 has an all-black finish, no attachments and non-adjustable iron sights.
The M9's cartridges deliver moderately-low damage of 889 blood and produce a small amount of recoil. The audible range to zombies is up to 52.8 meters from the shooter's position. The effective range of the M9 is up to 75 meters.
Although considerably weaker than the M1911 and Revolver, the M9 has a significantly larger magazine capacity, making it one of the best sidearms for raiding cities and small towns. The M9 will take up five slots in a backpack, as do all sidearms.
The M9's real life counterpart is the Beretta M9 - a semi-automatic pistol manufactured by Fabbrica d'Armi Pietro Beretta in Italy. The Beretta M9 fires 9×19mm Parabellum cartridges, has a fifteen round capacity magazine and has been in service with the United States Armed Forces since 1985.
