The AK-47 Machine Gun, or simply AK-47, is a Fortitude-based Machine Gun in 7 Days to Die.

Description[ | ]

The AK-47 is a short- to medium-ranged automatic weapon, affected by the Machine Gunner perk. Similar to other machine guns and rifles, the AK-47 uses 7.62mm Rounds as Ammunition. Previously named the AK-47 Assault Rifle and classified as a rifle, the AK-47 is now considered a machine gun in terms of Perks. It has the highest damage output potential out of all the conventional firearms, that lends the AK 47 well to being the player's backup gun to defend against surprise threats while scavenging or collecting resources.

Combat[ | ]

Due to the AK-47 having a lower head shot multiplier than other 7.62mm rifles, it is less effective in situations where time-to-kill is not as important as conservation of ammunition, such as in base defense. It takes two shots to the head to kill a normal Zombie, three shots to kill a bloated Zombie, or several shots to the body or limbs.

Repair[ | ]

The condition of an AK-47 deteriorates with each use until it will eventually stop working and will need to be repaired. This can be done using a Repair Kit.

History[ | ]

Patch version Changes
Alpha 13 Overhauled player animations for the AK-47. Added the AK-47Schematic.
Alpha 16 Improved and reworked iron sights for accurate aiming.
Alpha 17 Removed AK-47 schematic, now requiring Advanced Engineering 3 to craft. The AK now also uses a single-fire sound when fired.
Alpha 18 Added new AK-47 schematic. The AK-47 is now considered a machine gun, effected by Fortitude and the Machine Gunner perk. It now also scraps into Machine Gun Parts.

Notes[ | ]

  • An AK-47, like all weapons, can destroy blocks and other structures.
  • In real life, the AK-47 is chambered in 7.62x39mm ammunition, however, the game strongly implies 7.62x51mm NATO ammunition is being used.
  • While the rifle is termed as AK-47, the model actually resembles an AKMS, a modernized version of the AK-47 with folding stock. As this folding stock seems to be absent in the game model, the AK-47 assault rifle is the only rifle in the game that doesn’t have a stock.
