Overview Far Cry 2 Far Cry 3 Far Cry 4 Far Cry 5 New Dawn

The AK-47 appears in Far Cry 5, with a different appearance more closely based on the AKM, instead of the AK-103-style of the predecessors.

"The inventor of this dependable assault rifle believed it to be "a weapon of defense and not a weapon of offense.""

In-Game Description
Far Cry 5

The tried-and-true base model assault rifle of armies and militia worldwide, the AK-47 appears once again in Far Cry 5.

This time, as compared to Far Cry 3 and Far Cry 4, the AK-47 has the ability to be modified to fit the user's liking. The ability to mount scopes gives it a variable range based on the user's choice of optical sights, and the ability to attach a suppressor gives it stealth capability.

It can be fitted with one of several different optical sights, a suppressor, an extended magazine, and one of several paint schemes.

Statistically identical to the AK-47 and AK-M, The Whitetailer appears as a Prestige Variant of the base model AK-M painted in a Whitetail Militia livery.

In-Game Description
Far Cry 5

The only variant of the AK series in Far Cry 5 to have a stat change, the Warrior features a bright green base with black and white areas of striping over the gun.

Although from the same series as the AK-47 and AK-M, Warrior appears as a Prestige Variant of the base model AK-M, trading the stock (and by extension, a point of Accuracy), for an extra point in the Handling stat.

The Warrior has the possibility to make it the best close-range AK in Far Cry 5, as the extra point in handling gives it an edge in reload speed and general handling speeds, allowing the user to make faster shots at critical ranges that may give them the upper hand.

It can be fitted with one of several different optical sights, a suppressor, an extended magazine, but due to the nature of it being a prestige weapon, it has no skin options.

Trivia

  • The Far Cry 5 version of the AK-47 is actually an AKM, while the in-game AK-M is an AK equipped with various after-market rail mounts and accessories.
  • In Far Cry 5, the AK-M is one of the only weapons to have its mods sorted differently, as the Red Dot sight is first in the list, while the Reflex sight is second, and the square suppressor being first in line over the cylinder.
    • The SVD has a similar issue, having the suppressors also be out of the usual sorting order.
  • The "Whitetailer" variant incorrectly labels the weapon as an "AKM-S" in the description, while the name of the weapon and the other variants shows the otherwise used "AK-M" styling.
  • At launch, the Warrior had identical stats to the other variants. In a post-launch update the Warrior was changed from 5 to 4 Accuracy, while being buffed from 5 to 6 Handling instead, similar to the change made to the 45/70-T in the same update.
  • Several trailers depict both the Cult and Resistance wielding AK-47s. But in the final game they are replaced by the more appropriate AR-C
  • However, in the game's opening cutscene, several Cult VIPs hold the AK-47, albiet the Far Cry 4 model.
