  1. AKs can't compete with M4s: The AR platform weapons (M4, HK) etc. can be easily modified into literal laser beams at 800 RPM (M4) and 850 RPM (HK). It is relatively cheap and easy to make an M4 sit around 40 vertical recoil with max traders. Competitively viable ammo for the M4 is M855A1 or M995. M995 literally ignoring every armor, M855A1 having 43 penetration, being very effective against class 5 armor and relatively so against class 6. M855A1, a late game competitively viable ammo can be bought for 368₽ from level 4 Skier. All this makes the AK absolutely worthless to run due to the M4 platform being almost equally expensive while being strictly better in uses. Why the AK74 - 5.45x39, sucks late game: The AK although very cheap, at 600 RPM, best vertical recoil around 55 and a max bullet damage of 40 (51 pen) to be competitively viable (BS ammo) it is just strictly worse than the M4 and HK in every way. There is literally no reason to run an AK except on super budget runs, but then if you're running budget you have BT ammo which is almost useless except for head tapping at this point in wipe, and if you buy BS well at that point you might as well pick up an M4 and use M855A1 sold for 368₽ a round from the trader. As of right now BS ammo sits at 1,500₽ - 1,621₽ a round and trader sells it a little above 1,800₽. Strictly due to the price of running good ammo, the 200 lesser RPM, and the fact that you can significantly lower the recoil of an M4 compared to the AK, there is no reason to run AKs at all from a competitive stand point. Why the AKM - 7.62x39, sucks late game: Although the price for good ammunition is much better for the AKM (7.62 BP at ~1,100₽ market, 939₽ Prapor) the AKM recoil is absolutely trash. If you're running an AKM it's purely inefficient to run full auto unless you're within ~20 meters of your opponent, if that. The AKM is a bit better off compared to the AK74 due to the effectiveness of 7.62 BP and its cheaper price. The same issues fault it, ridiculously higher recoil compared to M4 platform, the price of BP being ~3x more expensive compared to M855A1, 200 RPM less than M4. Ways to make AKs viable while not manipulating real world values: Best option in my opinion: AK74 Bullet Price (5.45x39): If I can buy M855A1 for 368₽ at level 4 trader, there's no reason why I shouldn't be able to purchase BS ammo for no more than ~700₽, this alone, even if no other improvement would make it worth running the AK74. Why 700₽ and not less? Because I have to acknowledge the price of the AK74 being about 25,000₽ less than the M4. This roughly translates to one stock AK74 + 35 BS bullets = one stock M4. The AK should naturally be cheaper than the M4 being the setting of the game is in Russia and the AK is mass produced to much greater lengths in this regard compared to the M4. Secondary options: better recoil adjustment with attachments, cheaper meta attachments, better base recoil AKM Recoil Reduction (7.62x39): The price of the BP for AKMs is fair enough, although Prapor should sell a bit more, it could use a slight reduction in price though. The main thing however is the recoil. The base recoil on the AKM needs to be significantly lesser than what it is. I say the base recoil and not attachments because if the price for the AK74 BS ammo was lowered that would be sufficient, however, if you price was lowered and the attachments were given a bigger recoil adjustment it might be too good. Although a slight recoil reduction to the meta attachments would with the decreased price I think would still be balanced. Anyhow, The base recoil for AKMs in real life is actually very low, the compensators for AKMs can be so effective at siphoning the gas vertically that you can actually experience reverse recoil on an AKM when shooting full auto, meaning the muzzle of the gun actually fights you downwards and the shooter has to keep the muzzle up to be on target. Now, this would be awkward to implement in game and very broken, but I bring this up to make the point that not only is the ridiculously high recoil on AKMs absurd, it's also completely unrealistic. The AKMs in my opinion should be able to reach the mid 50s in recoil, like the current AK74s. An AKM should essentially be very similar to the AK74 in stats as regards to ergo and recoil, the primary difference should be the bullet price. 7.62 BP arguably being a better bullet option than 5.45 BS, should naturally be more expensive. The difference in the guns should mainly in price of ammunition. To summarize: If my primary suggestions come to light, the ideal scenario will be the the AK74 and AKM have similar recoil and ergo stats (being around the current AK74 recoil or preferably slightly lower), 5.45 BS should cost around 700₽ or a bit lower from level 4 Prapor, and 7.62 BP being around where it's at right now, perhaps slightly lower, with a slightly larger supply from Prapor before being sold out. Both ammunitions should be able to be bought at the same maximum quantity from the trader, whatever that may be.

    AK's reload animation

    I think ak's reload animation should be changed. I know that the devs have more important things to worry about now but i belive that this is worth mentioning. So current animation looks like the character would press the button at the side of the gun or something (like AR) to release the magazine. In real AK the release "button" is placed underneath the gun, between magazine and trigger cover. It is designed that way to actually instead of pressing it by your finger, snap it with the another magazine to make the reload faster. This is with fast reload of course.(Animation with tactical reload is fine.) Moreover you should pull the charging handle with your weaker arm, (in game your left arm now) and you should do it by swinging it under the gun. Currently, when reloading, your character supports the front gun grip by he's left arm and charges the handle with his right arm. This is very unproffesional since you should always have your hand on the pistol grip so you can take a shot at any time. *This is based on real military techniques* Hope you'll mind this
  3. In late game, there really isn't a place for using 7.62x39 weapons. They have too much recoil for the majority and with the low fire rate the weapons have BP sometimes doesn't cut it. Many people say that there isn't many AP 7.62x39 rounds but I still feel that to balance the ammo class there should be more. I mean, 5.45 has several ammo types filling in the gaps between while PS and BP are miles apart. I hope you could at least add another AP 7.62x39 round that is better than BP in pen but with lower damage for balance. Here are some examples that I found on the internet. Here is an example taken from the r/ak47 subreddit featuring two different AP ammos with one being the equivalent of M995. The one on the left is Lapua Tungsten Core and the one on the right is East German (DDR) Steel Core. Here is the OP's u/casualphilosopher1 words from the other post: "A while back I posted a pic of the old Soviet steel core BZ AP bullet. There have been more modern AP loadings in 7.62x39 but it's practically impossible to get any detailed information or even photos about them. Rarest of all is Lapua's 7.62x39 tungsten core ammo: they don't even advertise it in their military ammo catalog; it's only produced in limited quantities for the Finnish military. It's taken me weeks of searching to finally come across this pic. From the Cartridge Collectors site, Nammo's 7.62x39mm AP can penetrate 12mm RHA at 100m. This is equal to the NATO M995 5.56x45 AP round." All in all, I hope for the AKM series to be buffed in some way either it be recoil, price, ammo, etc. (From Reddit) EDIT: As a response to people saying there aren't many 7.62x39 bullets let me post some examples here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7jqfRlSoK60 AP Incediary bullets + 3 other types. Maybe we can have one of these bullets to fill the gap between PS and BP?https://modernarmsinternational.com/shop/110gr-ap/ This one is special because it is seemingly equivalent to m995 in terms of penetration. (Checked again. It is made of Tungsten) Thanks to user u/Penox for pointing this one out! https://modernarmsinternational.com/shop/110gr-ap/
  4. Title, it should fit but doesnt. Any help?
  5. Hi guys, Trying to figure out if I can put a hera arms cqr grip on the ak47n or akm. Google seems to support this theory, although I will admit I can't find an actual photo of a set up like this. Also, when you hover over the compatibility thing on the CQR grip, it tells me that there are a few 74n/akm in my stash that will accept the grip. I have 10 wcases full of guns so this was annoying to search for but I think it has something to do with the UFM handguard. But when I go to actually install the CQR on a ufm handguard, it gives me the error that you cannot install CQR and UFM at the same time. I'm trying to think what this means for the CQR on the ak or maybe it just is not possible. You get this error on the AS-VAL when you try to put the new pistol grip on (allows you to throw on MOE stock), you get a similar error, and all you have to do is remove some parts before trying to install things (you have to remove the regular stock before you can switch out the pistol grips) Let me know if you guys have any insight! PS: i attached a pic of me trying to install it Thanks, gfa3

    Lower AKM Handguard

    Hey everyone, Just wanted to give you guys an idea of handguard for AKMs that i got on mine and since i like it a lot and EFT is the best game about weapon modding right now, why not suggest it to the devs ? Its a lower handguard with 3 rails that leaves the gas tube out in the open. Tell me what you think : Tdi LHV-L Lower Handguard
  10. Since the Announcement that the AKM would be in the game I've been hoping to get myself an AKM in-game with a PSO and suppressor. However, I'm beginning to think that wont be possible since apparently even the military AKM doesn't have a dovetail mount. Is it possible to get a PSO on the AKM? is OP-SKS easiest/best way to get 4x with 7.62x39? I'm also curious what attachments others are running on the AKM or civilian variants.
  11. Hier gibts neue Screenshots der AKM (7.62mm) die bald in Escape from Tarkov erscheint! Erfreut euch auch an neuen Spots von Shoreline! Original englischer Beitrag von @Kleanuppguy hier Französische Übersetzung von @AGN_YuD kann man hier finden
  12. Cher habitants de Norvinsk , Voici pour vous l AKM dans les mains d un PMC très chanceux car il a droit à la seconde partie de Shoreline !
