The Nykorev (pronounced 'knee-core-ref') is an Epic Ranged Weapon in Unturned 3. It is classified as a light machine gun. It uses the Nykorev Box, which holds 200 rounds. It includes the Nykorev Iron Sights pre-attached by default. The Nykorev takes up 10 slots in the inventory. The Nykorev was added to the game in version 220.127.116.11 along with two other Russian firearms.
Horde Beacon: Available as a reward.
The Nykorev fires relatively slowly when compared to other machine guns, but has good crowd control characteristics due to its high ammo capacity. Its high durability also makes it so the Player has to repair it less frequently than most other weapons.
Overall, the Nykorev is a long-lasting suppression weapon for short to medium ranges. Its inability to damage invulnerable structures limits its usefulness as a raiding tool.

- It was the first light machine gun added to the game.
- This gun is based on the PKM general-purpose machine gun. It is chambered for the 7.62x54mmR round, and was designed by Mikhail Kalashnikov, same as the Zubeknakov's real-life equivalent.
- Even though its round is significantly more powerful than that of the Zubeknakov in real life, it does very low damage in comparison.
Being a machine gun, the PKM and its respected magazine can be found at Evacuation Zone, dropped by military zombies, at crashed helicopters that spawn randomly around the map, at Ana's Lighthouse and in the crashed plane at the end of Farway Airport's runway. It can also be found on the mid platform of the Radio Tower.
