With a good magazine, fire rate and powerful 7.62 rounds, the classic remake of the legendary AK-47 packs one heck of a punch against both armoured and unarmoured players.
The only downside is the recoil, which greatly decreases the effectiveness. And with no option for a foregrip, it can barely be changed. This weapon is better suited for close range firefights.
The AKM is a very common drop, it's so common that you may sometimes find the AKM more then you find 7.62 ammo needed to fire said gun.
- Early Access Month 2 Update: Increased bullet damage slightly.; Modified recoil.
