This page contains information about the mod version of DayZ. Standalone information is available here.


The M9 is one of the rarer sidearms in DayZ, but is useful for raiding towns and cities thanks to its low noise level and good iron sights. Due to its low damage and rare ammunition, the M9 is one of the least desirable sidearms in DayZ. Its silenced variant, the M9 SD, is much more desirable thanks to its silent killing ability.

What I think this comes down to is how efficient you are. People are saying Magazine size (G17) over accuracy (M9) Basically, If you know you can hit something, and get around 10 kills with a 15 round mag, then you would take the M9, as the accuracy is better for you. If you plain don't give a damn on what you hit with whatever gun, and you spray and suck with aiming, take the G17, as ammo is everywhere, and there is bang for your buck. So, If you are optic no-scope l337 shot with guns, M9. If you just like pumping some guy with lead, G17

(Don't even think I dislike the G17, it's a great sidearm to have, But yet, the M9 is great too. But M1911 is king)

So, It's not a matter of "M9 Sucks, G17 Sucks..." it's do you suck?

I don't understand why this pistol is even an option. It has nothing to offer. Use the G17 for a bigger magazine and a flashlight. Use the revolver for more damage. This pistol is useless.

This sidearm, in my eyes, is defenitley the worst, you can take this if you have nothing else but it's low damage is reason anough to NOT pick it up!

this is a nice looking gun, it reminds me of james bond's p99, so its fun parachuting out of helis and taking out everything with this or its silenced version

While alot of people hate on this gun, and i agree the sd is better. Heres the thing, ammo for it may be somewhat uncommon - but if you have a vehicle and do alot of looting, you will come by more then enough ammo for this gun. The g17 may have more rounds, however the m9 is more accurate in general, because the iron sights are smaller. So in a pvp situation id trust this gun over the g17.

Only M9 that is good is the SD and even that is not my first choice for a sidearm. Only for being stealthy.

When I have a choice, I always pick the m9 over a g17. The sights (for me at least) are so much more accurate than the g17 sights, and the fewer shots you miss, the better. The way I look at it is it's like choosing the revolver over the m1911, you sacrifice mag size for accuracy. The flashlight function on the g17 is nice if you play at night, but for everything else, m9 is superior.
