The latest in the venerable AK series of weapons is this modern assault rifle, which uses a much lighter alloy-polymer construction and features several enhancements; such as ambidextrous controls, pic-rails, and improved recoil reduction during semi and full-auto fire. Full production of the rifle barely began in Russia just before the outbreak hit.
By unknown means, small numbers of this unique firearm have found their way into the Dead Zone.

Basically a high level version of the AK-74, this rifle deals incredible damage per shot, also possessing excellent accuracy and range. However, its poor rate of fire, combined with a long reload speed, means that a lone survivor can be overwhelmed quickly. It's best to group its wielder with other survivors, who can provide backup while reloading.
- Ammunition Pouches/Bandoliers speed up the reload time.
- Glasses extend the long range further, with some variants improving accuracy.
- Extended Mags extend the large magazine size.
- Ammunition Mods increase the damage dealt, theoretically reducing the shots needed to kill.
