The AKM is a powerful assault rifle that uses the 7.62 class of ammunition. This rifle does more damage than the 5.56 ARs and comes with a kick to match. In regards to attachments, the AKM is identical to the M16A4 in that it can only accept a muzzle, magazine and sight attachment. It is best used in single shot mode unless you are breaching buildings with it.
It is notable in that even if a target is wearing a military vest and/or Spetsnaz helmet, it only takes a maximum of five shots to kill. It is also capable of killing a Spetsnaz helmet wearer in two shots by landing a shot on the head, then finishing them off with another shot to any other part of their body. Thus, when used in conjunction with a telescopic sight, despite its strong recoil, its potential as a sharpshooting rifle is not to be underestimated.
