This guide will show you the basics and know-how about the AK-47. This guide was requested by most of my clan members so be it. Lol

[AK-47: A little history and background check]

The AK-47 is a selective-fire, gas-operated 7.62×39mm assault rifle, first developed in the Soviet Union by Mikhail Kalashnikov. It is officially known as Avtomat Kalashnikova. It is also known as a Kalashnikov, an "AK", or, in Russian slang, Kalash.

The standard AK-47 or akm fires the 7.62x39mm cartridge with a muzzle velocity of 710 metres per second (2,300 ft/s). Muzzle energy is 2,010 joules (1,480 ft·lbf). Projectile weight is normally 7.8 grams (120 gr). The AK-47 and akm, with the 7.62×39mm cartridge, have a maximum effective range of around 400 metres (1,300 ft).

Design background
During World War II, the Germans first pioneered the assault rifle concept, based upon research that showed that most firefights happen at close range, within approximately 300 meters.[citation needed] The power and range of contemporary rifle cartridges was excessive for most small arms firefights. As a result, armies sought a cartridge and rifle combining submachine gun features (large-capacity magazine, selective-fire) with an intermediate-power cartridge effective to 300 meters. To reduce manufacturing costs, the 7.92x57mm Mauser cartridge case was shortened, the result of which was the lighter 7.92x33mm Kurz.
The resultant rifle was the Sturmgewehr 44 (StG44). An earlier firearm, the Italian Cei-Rigotti combined similar features but suffered poor reliability and ejection mechanism, as well as inferior magazine capacity. Towards the end of the war, the Germans fielded the StG44 against the Soviets; the experience deeply influenced Soviet military doctrine in the post-war years.[citation needed]
Mikhail Kalashnikov began his career as a weapon designer while in a hospital after he was shot in the shoulder during the Battle of Bryansk.[10] After tinkering with a sub-machine gun design, he entered a competition for a new weapon that would chamber the 7.62x41mm cartridge developed by Elisarov and Semin in 1943 (the 7.62x41mm cartridge predated the current 7.62x39mm M1943). A particular requirement of the competition was the reliability of the firearm in the muddy, wet, and frozen conditions of the Soviet front line. Kalashnikov designed a carbine, strongly influenced by the American M1 Garand, that lost out to the Simonov design that later became the sks semi-automatic carbine. At the same time, the Soviet Army was interested in developing a true assault rifle employing a shortened M1943 round. The first such weapon was presented by Sudayev in 1944, but trials found it to be too heavy. A new design competition was held two years later where Kalashnikov and his design team submitted an entry. It was a gas-operated rifle which had a breech-block mechanism similar to his 1944 carbine, and a curved 30-round magazine.
Kalashnikov's rifles (codenamed AK-1 and −2) proved to be reliable and the weapon was accepted to second round of competition along with designs by A.A Demetev and F. Bulkin. In late 1946, as the rifles were being tested, one of Kalashnikov's assistants, Aleksandr Zaytsev, suggested a major redesign of AK-1, particularly to improve reliability. At first, Kalashnikov was reluctant, given that their rifle had already fared better than its competitors. Eventually, however, Zaytsev managed to persuade Kalashnikov. The new rifle was produced for a second round of firing tests and field trials. There, Kalashnikov assault rifle model 1947 proved to be simple and reliable under a wide range of conditions with convenient handling characteristics. In 1949 it was therefore adopted by the Soviet Army as '7.62mm Kalashnikov assault rifle (AK)'.

[The Ws and Hs of the AK-47]

The AK-47 is typically the most powerful rifle in CrossFire's line of Rifles. Second is the AR-70, Third is the Scar-H, 4th is the QBZ-95 and 5th is the~ you guessed it. Scar(fag) light(gay).

Moving on. The 5 Ws of the AK-47
-What is the use of this gun
-Who can use this gun
-Where to use this gun
-When to use this gun
-Why use this gun.

*Let's start with the Ws:

-What is the use of this gun? IMO, this gun is designed for all kinds of rifle users. If you are a rusher type, you can basically use the spray tactic. For mid/long range players, the high damage is good for long range death. But the problem is that you need to tame the beastly recoil of this gun. Once you do, you can become a deadly AK handler.

-Who can use this gun? Just like in the what, the AK is designed for everybody, which means all can use it. Whether you are a rusher type, burst type, or any other kinds of rifle handlers out there. The AK is definitely for you. But because of the high recoil, you may regret buying one. (Note: after reading this guide and you understand everything, you can now stick to your AK-47 and do some badass kills.)

-Where to use this gun? For beginners, it's good you start off in small maps. Prolly Destruction mode maps like Mexico and Eagle eye. Then if you improved your skills in controlling recoil and bursting in mid ranges, you can move in to medium sized maps like Factory, Sub Base and Castle.

-When to use this gun? The AK is best used in times you hate your current gun. I can't think of any good reason. I'm not good at guides, okay? =.=

-Why use this gun? Uhh because it makes you look like a pro? No. It makes you one.

The H of the AK-47

How to use it.

Now this is the tricky part. You would certainly require these to practice.
1.) AK-47 (regular variant)
2.) A comfortable mouse (any dpi rate will do)
3.) Low mouse sensitivity (but you can adjust how low it is for you to feel comfortable)
4.) A buddy
5.) dm bw map. (could be ffa or TD, as long it's Black Widow.)

1. Empty one mag of AK-47 on the wall. Spray it without moving your mouse. Just hold lmb.

-An AK-47 spray pattern usually looks like a "7" sign, Sometimes it's inverted, sometimes it looks like a "T"

2. Now after spraying one mag. Reload (duh) then try to control the recoil by maintaining all bullets to form one small circle.

It should look something like this.

3. Spraying while moving is one of the hardest tactics to do in the AK-47. In short, you will kill multiple targets in a wide area by spraying.

To do this, strafe left. (For those who don't know what strafe is, press A to go left and/or press D to go right [you idiots, You don't play counterstrike? xDD]) While strafing left, put in your mind the spray pattern on screenshot # 1 (or anything that comes out.) Then drag your mouse to the right side. It will make a jagged horizontal pattern. Then strafe to the right (press D) then drag your mouse while spraying.

4. For shooting at mid and long range, (you're still in L A) go to the terrace, but don't go inside it. See the crate on your right side (Bomb Site A)? It should serve as your target dummy. Have a friend to watch over the crate. Simply tap 6 shots to the box. All bullets should hit the center of the "X". If you don't know what I mean, you should hit the center of the box. Like in this pic

5. If you can't control the beastly recoil of this gun, crouching is okay as long as you do the tapcrouch method. Simply do some bursts then tap ctrl, then tap lmb 2-3 times (it's better if you have the x2 function in your mouse.) Keep doing this until the spray pattern in figure #2 will appear (not)

[AK-47: Comparison with Weapons]

Comparison with the world's most popular gun, the Scar(fag) Light(gay)
Yeah, AK lacks accuracy and RoF against scar, but I can tell you one thing: The Power (Damage) is off the hook!
Now what do those scarfags have to say to their beloved gun? :p

Why I compared it to a Dragunov? Duhh~ they're like brothahs But I w0wed when I compared these tow. AK-47 really has teh powah! It even has moar powah than a snipah! Kapow!

[AK-47: Statistics]
Now, for the stats in my experience of using this gun, is kinda weird. SO bear with me.

Draw Time/Bolt Pull: 1-1.4 secs.
Firing Speed: 2.77-3.12 secs.
Reload Speed: 2.92 secs.

Power at varying distances at varying body parts:


Head: Instant Kill
Arm: 33
Body: 37
Leg: 22

Mid Range:

Head: Instant Kill
Arm: 31
Body: 32
Leg: 29

Long Range:

Head: Instant Kill
Arm: 30
Body: 31
Leg: 18

*sorry for some miscalculations. I'm not good with numbers >.<

[AK-47: Pros and Cons]


1. The AK-47 is good at cqc for beginners.

2. It's a CS gun. For CS veterans (like me), this is one of the guns I am fond of using besides
the M4A1, AUG, SG552, and AWM.

3. The sleek design of this gun is perfect for those who want to look good in the battlefield.
Best suited with omoh and spop.

4. It's 35k GP.

5. The power brings maximum lulz.

6. It comes in any variants: Elite (Scope), Gold, Silver (Gayest version in the PH version), Assault (camo),
Red Dragon (Elite version only), Sampaguita (Jasmine in JP and CH version) and the Knife (has knife attachment: Press rmb to pierce)


1. It's high recoil is hard to control, especially if your style is using low recoil weapons
2. The rank requirement: Staff Sgt 1st class (wtf? I have to stick with the lowbie version, which is the 74.)
3. The reload time is Sloooooooooooooooow. 2.9 seconds? It's like unlocking a padlock.
4. Weight sucks. It's like carrying an M700 (make that 2 M700s).
5. Sometimes not good for spraying bullets at fags with armor.

[AK-47: Guide Generalization]

The AK-47 is a good gun for those who are into the spray and pray tactics, sharpshooting and any kind of style you can think of.
It's high damage and recoil plus that low accuracy and auto may give you an advantage, but mastering this gun will give you a hell of a ride. You may be the next Bin Laden (which will be shot by the us army then your body will be thrown on the sea).

Lol. Just a small tip for you. Practice and Practice until you master, the icebuko48 way.

Now, imma show you what my tactics can do. (Also know as achievements. lool)

P.S. Armor from mega jackpot
