It is featured in all STALKER games but is usually quite rare, being used primarily by Duty Experts and Mercenaries. A .45 ACP handgun, the SIP-t M200 is a good all-round sidearm. It is relatively lightweight and durable, with good handling, accuracy and stopping power. One interesting detail is that the gun is equipped with night sights which dimly glow in low-light conditions, making it easier to aim.
The M200 can only be bought from Colonel Petrenko after attaining a friendly reputation with Duty. The weapon is commonly held by veteran and expert Duty, Freedom, Mercenary, and Monolith stalkers. The handgun performs exceptionally well with a fairly large magazine, superb accuracy and stopping power. This gun has similar stats to the UDP Compact, and choosing between the two is largely a matter of taste. The SIP-t M200 is cheaper, more accurate and has slightly better handling, but holds one less round in the magazine and is slightly less powerful in comparison to the UDP.
The M200 is exclusively used by Mercenaries, and cannot be found or bought anywhere else. The only place where it is likely to be found is by salvaging the bodies of killed mercenaries in the Dark Valley during Freedom's purge of them.
The weapon is a lightweight pistol which weighs less than 1.00kg loaded with a sizable magazine capacity of 10 rounds and fair performance, it's stats are similar to the UDP Compact although having a larger magazine. It can be upgraded by most technicians and is fairly durable.
This weapon also appears in Call of Pripyat. It is capable of three-round burst-fire with a 3rd tier upgrade. The SIP weighs less than 1.00kg loaded and boasts a balanced mix of accuracy, firepower and low recoil, although it only has a limited 7 round magazine.
One can find this pistol early in the game in a pile of boulders north of the fueling station, along with ammo, food and medical supplies and many Mercenaries use this as their sidearm. Nimble sells a unique variant; the Alpine.
