You’ll find our AK47 loadout for Black Ops Cold War below, which will make use of the Gunfighter Wildcard to pop eight attachments into its slots. Set your rifle up right to reduce recoil and the AK will carry you through most firefights thanks to its massive damage.

  • Optic: Microflex LED
  • Muzzle: KGB Eliminator
  • Barrel: 18.2” VDV Reinforced
  • Body: Mounted Flashlight
  • Underbarrel: Spetsnaz Grip
  • Magazine: 40 RND
  • Handle: GRU Elastic Wrap
  • Stock: KGB Skeletal Stock

The AK’s base bullet velocity is pretty low, which is why we’re compensating for that with the 18.2” VDV Reinforced Barrel, which also handily bumps up your damage range. We’re also aiming to tone down that recoil with both the KGB Eliminator and the Spetsnaz Grip. The KGB Skeletal Stock will take some time to unlock, but the time is worth it for the benefits it provides to sprint to aiming time.

That’s everything from our best AK47 loadout for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War. If you’re also looking to start sniping, we’ve got a great loadout for the Pelington 703 to get you killing form afar, or if another assault rifle is what you want, we also have an M16 loadout.
