The AK-47 is a primary weapon in Far Cry 2.
The AK-47 (Avtomat Kalashnikova obraztsa 1947 goda) is the signature weapon of guerilla fighters worldwide, and is one of the most feared weapons on the planet. Since its introduction in 1947, the AK-47 has become the world's most popular assault rifle, with approximately 70 million AK-47s built and 100 million AK-type rifles. Mikhail Kalashnikov, the rifle's creator, designed the AK-47 to be reliable in the muddy, wet, and frozen conditions of the Soviet front line. Given the AK-47's reliability and ease of manufacture due to its simple design, it lends itself readily to mass production.
There are two ways to obtain the AK-47.
- The AK-47 is available after the second weapon shop mission in Act 1.
- The weapon is dominant among enemies during Act 1 until after the first faction mission of Act 2.
The AK-47 has decent accuracy and power, but it also has high recoil and a questionable range. The AK has the best reliability of all the assault rifles, and can be used for a very long time before it starts to rust, jam and eventually break apart. Until the FAL paratrooper or the AR-16 are available, the AK-47 can be a more powerful, reliable and still cheap alternative to the G3KA4. It's early advantages of firepower comes at a noticeable trade of greater recoil and more primitive iron sights.
Golden AK-47s Edit
- Main article: Golden AK-47
There are eight "Golden AK-47s" hidden throughout the game world. These weapons are just like the regular AK-47 except they have no stock and are gold plated. They degrade very slowly and rarely jam. It is wise to rotate one through the primary weapon crate.
The AK-47 is heavily used in all game modes, it beats the G3 in terms of reliability and damage. However it's no match against the AR-16's Damage but either way it's an okay firearm to have around.
