The AK-47 (Avtomat Kalashnikova Model 1947, Автомат Калашникова in Russian), also known as CV-47, is an assault rifle exclusive to the Terrorist in the Counter-Strike series and in Counter-Strike Online.

Overview

AK-47 can hold up to 30 rounds of 7.62 NATO. This assault rifle is the trademark of the Terrorists although it is also used by the Russian government. It does high damage per hit but comes with high recoil so spraying with this rifle makes the user lose their accuracy tremendously thus it is not recommended to spray unless the player is skilled. It is also the most popular assault rifle among the Terrorists due to its high damage and deadly accuracy.

After the Free Update patch, this weapon becomes a free default weapon in all player's inventories.

Advantages

  • High damage for an assault rifle
  • Short reload time
  • High rate of fire
  • Cheaper than its counterpart, the M4A1
  • Accurate in long range

Disadvantages

  • Loses accuracy in just several shots
  • Very loud, reveals position
  • Purchasable only for the Terrorists in Original mode
  • Very high recoil
  • Wild spray pattern
  • Quite expensive ammunition cost

The AK is only purchasable by the Terrorists, making it the most commonly used weapon among the Terrorists. The AK-47 can be fired in full automatic, does high damage and has cheaper purchase price when compared to its counterpart, the M4A1. It has high recoil which makes the user lose accuracy in just several shots and it also has loud firing sounds, which is not suitable for assassination attempts and will attract enemies.

Tactics

  • Fire in burst or one-by-one in long range.
  • In close range, fire continuously and aim for the stomach. The bullets will spread to the head. The first two shots will mostly land near upper torso.
  • Missing few shots in close range can result loss of accuracy if continuously fired, use tap firing instead.
  • The first 2-4 shots have the best accuracy with proper spraying control, making this weapon is lethal for certain users.
  • Stay stationary while firing AK-47 to get an accurate result. However, squat (press shift) can be done to avoid the recoil from becoming too wild.
  • Use the AK-47's loud sound as an advantage as it will bring your opponents to you and you can ambush them. However, this tactic needs skill or should come with many teammates.
  • Recoil control is totally different. Since Basic mode decreased the recoil greatly, an adaptation in modes where recoil is not having modifications is surely advised to be trained.
  • Beware that any experienced CTs can take over the weapon and vice versa for its counterpart.
  • In far or middle range, when the recoil is too high, perform a quick switch (default: Q) so that the crosshair will become normal again (do not do this in close range as you will give the enemy a chance to kill you).

Trivia

  • The model lacks the Cyrillic alphabet "ОД " and "АВ" which is engraved on the receiver.
  • A dragon print can be seen on the receiver of the golden AK-47.
  • Because the weapon is originally modeled with a right-hand weapon and a left-hand grip, the ejection port is incorrectly mirrored as a result. This happens with most of the initial weapons in-game.
  • The gold, red and HQ variants of AK-47 in game are actually based on AKM, not the AK-47.
    • However, the HUD icon for gold, red and HQ variants use the original AK-47's HUD icon instead of the AKM's one.
  • Since the implementation of the Paint system, the default model has been remodeled. It should be noted that now it resembles more to Counter-Strike: Condition Zero's and the HQ version. However, the glove texture for males remains as is.
    • It should also be noted that the shop preview remains unchanged.
