This AK-47 attachments loadout set-up turns the Russian Assault Rifle into a true force of nature.

Meanwhile, the Bruiser Grip and Spetsnaz Field Grip aim to claw back some Speed and Accuracy to make it more viable.

Maximum Accuracy Build

This is about as accurate as it gets with the AK-47. The Diamondback Reflex Optic makes use of the extra accuracy, but the AK-47 is far from the most accurate long-range AR. The GRU Elastic Wrap, though, should offer enough protection with its additional Flinch Resistance to allow this weapon to be viable in longer-range firefights.

Gunfighter Wild Card

The Gunfighter Wild Card is a class option which unlocks three additional attachment slots for your primary weapon. This means, you can have a fully loaded AK-47! Below, we’ve explored the best fully-equipped AK-47 loadout attachment set-up for you.

Personal Build

This AK-47 isn’t too dissimilar to the Maxiumum Accuracy AK-47 attachment loadout set-up; however, there are some key differences. For one, it uses the Iron Sights. The AK-47 has largely un-intrusive Iron Sights, meaning you can still spot enemies at quite a difference. The 18.2” VDV Reinforced Barrel adds an additional 100% Effective Damage Range with additional Bullet Velocity to make this an adaptable set-up. The 40 Rnd Speed Mag is a no-brainer when deciding on a final attachment. Aim Down Sight Time is reduced, but the additional Magazine Ammo Capacity and Reload Quickness is beyond useful.
