The RPK-74 (Russian: Ручной пулемёт Калашникова or "Kalashnikov hand-held machine gun") is a light machine gun, first presented in 1974. It is a modernized variant of the AK-74 rifle and the modifications implemented mirror those made to the AKM. The RPK-74 uses 5.45x39 mm cartridges similar to the AK-74 and can handle AK-74 magazines in addition to its own 75-round magazine.

The RPK-74 is the most widely used squad automatic weapon in the game, with the majority of the factions having their Automatic Rifleman class equipped by it. It provides the same function as the American SAW, XM8 SAW or the German MG36. Like the previously-mentioned weapons, the RPK is less accurate than rifles of the same caliber but compensated for it by having several times more rounds. Similarly, the RPK can take the 30-round AK-74 magazines should the situation demands it.

Compared to other light machine guns in the game, the RPK's main disadvantage is that its magazine only has 75 rounds as opposed to 200 rounds for SAW and 100 rounds for XM8 SAW and MG36 while taking the same equipment slots. This may be offset by the fact that since the RPK is widely used by all sides and that it can take the even more widely used AK-74 magazines, the gunner should not have too much of a problem getting ammunition as opposed to the more restricted 5.56 mm NATO rounds for the other weapons.
