The KF5 is a fully automatic Sub Machine Gun in Call of Duty Advanced Warfare. It is a very viable and competitive SMG in close medium range combat.
The Iron Sights is usable in close quarter combat but gets very annoying at long range and can hinder the players view. An Optical Attachment like the Red Dot Sight is recommended if using the KF5 for longer range engagements. Recommended attachments for the KF5 are Advanced Rifling for added Range, Quickdraw, Red Dot Sight and the Foregrip.
The real fun begins with the Breakneck variant which adds 3 points to Fire Rate, this is one of the best variants in the game and count yourself lucky if you have it!
The best KF5 variants are the Breakneck, Spanner (Both Elite) and the Genuine(Professional). The Breakneck adds 3 to Fire Rate and takes 1 from Accuracy. The Spanner adds 3 to Range and takes 2 from Fire Rate and 1 from Handling. Rapid Fire is recommended with this Variant. The Genuine adds 1 to Damage and Accuracy and takes 1 from Range. This variant does not allow Optical attachments.
