"The PMC is a standard issue military assault rifle. Its high accuracy at mid range makes this weapon a good choice for most combat situations. When charged, it fires a special purpose clip of 100 bullets in one concentrated blast, which completely obliterates multiple enemies in a single shot."The Peacemaker Carbine (PMC) is a basic weapon the player is given at the start of the game. This is the only weapon you can't swap out — you will always have the Peacemaker Carbine with you. The PMC appears to act like your standard assault rifle, but actually has the ability to be charged via the R2/Right Bumper/"C" key (PC), joining 100 bullets to fire a single lance of energy, which instantly burns the target's flesh, leaving them a charred skeleton. It is unknown where the mag for the charged shot is loaded. It also was suggested that the PMC could be equipped with attachments.
When a boss/miniboss is present, pressing R after reloading will grant the player 50 ammo, until the max ammo limit.
The following are known skillshots unique to the Peacemaker Carbine weapon.
|Headshot||25||Kill an enemy with a shot to the head.|
|Bullet Kick||25||Kill an enemy with bullets after kicking him.|
|Bullet Slide||25||Kill an enemy with bullets after sliding into him.|
|Gag Reflex||50||Kill an enemy with a shot to the throat.|
|Rear Entry||50||Kill an enemy by shooting him in the ass.|
|Trip Wire||50||While an enemy is running, shoot their legs or feet to trip them, then quickly finish them off.|
|Mercy||100||Shoot an enemy in the balls, then shoot or kick their head off while they scream in pain.|
|Boned||25||Kill an enemy with a charge shot from a Peacemaker Carbine.|
|Overkill||50||Shoot an enemy in the head with a charged PMC.|
|X-Ray||100||Kill two or more enemies with a single overcharged PMC shot.|
Note that most of the uncharged skillshots can be achieved with other weapons as well.

- The PMC may be a reference to the unfinished "Peacemaker" weapon from the original Unreal, a game also published by Epic Games.
