The AK assault rifle is a primary weapon available in PAYDAY 2.

OverviewEdit

The AK is an assault rifle unlocked immediately upon reaching Level 1. It is an upgrade to the AMCAR that is the default assault rifle available to players, possessing better damage and accuracy, but lower base stability. Unmodified, the rifle can kill any basic enemy apart from Maximum Force Responders, yellow SWAT, and GenSec Elites in a single headshot. Its moderately high stability makes keeping the rifle on target at close to medium range fairly easy, although burst firing may be required for longer distances.

It is a very well-rounded assault rifle, providing a reasonable ammo capacity at the expense of lower damage. Regardless, much like the CAR-4 , the AK is still a very viable and flexible weapon, but only after having DLCs such as the Butcher's AK/CAR Mod Pack.

SummaryEdit

Pros:

  • Moderate damage.
  • Above average rate of fire and stability handling.
  • Available almost from the start and is cheap to buy.
  • One of the best holdout rifles.

Cons:

TipsEdit

  • Due to the higher ammo pool compared to the AK.762, it is recommended to use this rifle for most sustained engagements.

SkinsEdit

  • The AK is the only weapon to have a skin in every pre-Update #92 safe.
  • The Little Brother skin is a reference to Houston, whose mask is displayed on the skin, being Dallas' younger brother.
  • The Vlad's Rodina, according to an FBI File e-mail citing a blog named "Untold War Stories of Eastern Europe" by "Oleksandr Marchenko", was an AK with a bloody history, first in the hands of a Private who was court-martialed for killing two of his own squad with it, then given its name by a "Sergeant Zaytsev" after single-handedly fighting off an ambush with it in the Battle of Grozny (whether this refers to the 1994-1995 battle, 1996 battle, or 1999-2000 battle is unclear, though it's possible all three were merged into a single six-year battle in the PAYDAY universe), and finally finding its way into Vlad's hands while in a Russian mob. The rifle allegedly has an unquenchable thirst for blood.

AchievementsEdit

TriviaEdit

  • The AK is based on the Izhmash AKS-74. Equipping the Classic Stock turns it into a regular AK-74.
  • Like all other AK family variants in PAYDAY 2, this weapon mounts optical sights on an accessory rail between the front and rear iron sight, which is a highly unusual feature as mounting anything but the smallest and lightest weight form of optics would dramatically unbalance the firearm and make target acquisition more time consuming. Most real life AK variants can be equipped with an accessory rail attached via mounting bracket fitted to the left hand side of the weapon's lower receiver above the weapon's pistol grip, this puts the optical sight in a much more traditional location directly over the top of the rearmost portion of the upper receiver. This scope mount was added to the game with the introduction of The Butcher's AK/CAR Mod Pack.
  • Of all the AK-pattern firearms available in PAYDAY 2, the AK is unique in that only it has, and uses, Bakelite magazines instead of the common metallic ones featured on its many brethren.
  • Found in the game's texture folder is a mod icon for a scrapped knife bayonet attachment for the AK. Based on the texture image, it was apparently recycled into the Bayonet Knife.
