This sidearm is normally one of the first ones to be found after the HVM 001 you start with. A decent sidearm, with damage almost double the HVM's pistol and good clip size, it still struggles with the problems of a normal pistol with pierce, and the damage type. Now the CM 202, while powerful in the right hands, is not recommended past level 15 and shouldn't be used as a main weapon when in multiplayer. The weapon also has the drawback of having only an 18-round clip ( version fixes that a little), making it prone to reloads, and while it reloads as fast as normal pistols, it can still irritate people.
This pistol is also considered weaker than its brothers, the CM 205 and CM 225, as both are full auto, and the 225 does more damage. This weapon is normally replaced with anything other than the normal HVM 001 pistol, unless that pistol has better augments than this pistol.
It is also one of the few weapons that has a change in stats other than damage and ammo cost, with the CM 202's case being that capacity is increased.
Its under-barrel magazine fed design is similar to the Mauser C96 and the TEC-9.
Some parts from the PC version isn't colored red that was colored in the mobile version.
