AK47 Gun Review: Best Class setups, Variants and Attachments for the AK47 in Advanced Warfare

The AK47 is a fully automatic assault rifle in Advanced Warfare. A returning fan favorite, anyone who remembers Call of Duty in it’s old days remembers using an AK47. COD4, Black Ops and MW2/3 all had AK47’s, our personal favorite being the Black Ops AK.. what a beast of a rifle, I mean it dominated in all situations, hands down.

Advanced Warfare’s AK47 is a high damage dealing assault rifle. It works best in medium range engagements and it’s fire rate and ADS time is just┬áto slow to use as a close quarter weapon. An important thing to note about the AK47 is that it kills in 4 shots from any distance even with a silencer.

Recommended attachments for the AK47 are Quickdraw to speed up the ADS time, Silencer to reduce mussle flash and the Foregrip to reduce some of that insane AK kick.
