|«||The AK-12 is a modern assault rifle designed to replace the legendary AK-74 as the general issue weapon for the Russian army. The weapon introduces many improvements over its predecessors: better recoil control, suitable for various ammunition types, compatibility with several accessories, and better ergonomics. This particular version is chambered in 7.62x39 mm, so it trades a bit of accuracy for a bigger punch and better penetration.||»|
The AK-12 can safely be called the best standard assault rifle in the game, with all of its stats on par with or better than similar weapons and only the unique Type 115 being a better assault rifle overall. It has the highest damage of any assault rifle, making quick work of armored infantry, while its high accuracy and low recoil make it easy to keep shots on target. It has three fire modes: semi-automatic, two-round burst and full auto. The two-round burst has a significantly higher rate of fire than its automatic mode and will almost always kill in close quarters if both shots hit.
The AK-12 GL variant adds an underslung 40mm grenade launcher.
The AK-12 is fed by a 30-round 7.62x39mm magazine. Compatible accessories are optics, rail attachments, suppressors, and bipods. The AK-12 GL cannot accept a bipod.
