Wow I didnt realise how awful the AK is?!
Why arent M16's flooding the planet instead!!
The AK doesn't break, over-heat, it shoots whether cover in mud, or filled with sand.
The AK-47 is on the coin of the Russian Federation, it is on the flag of Mozambique.
The AK is un-deniably the best weapon in the world when it comes to simplicity and reliability.
Who needs accuracy when you can spray?
Newsflash: With the exception of the military, special police divisions, gun clubs, and the criminal underground, guns are flat-out absent in Britain.
Realistically, the guns being used should fall into one of two criteria IMO:
1) Already in the British arsenal (and thus salvageable)
2) Cheap/reliable/easy to obtain
The Trader obviously operates on the black market. The AK-47 is hands down the most popular and numerous assault rifle in the world, and an ambitious gal like herself would have no problem acquiring some of them if she can get her hands on something like a friggin' ANTI-TANK ROCKET LAUNCHER.
Debating whether or not a gun is "British" enough makes no sense considering things like the flamethrower.
As for the AK-47, well.. which would prefer: an accurate gun of decent reliability, or a less accurate gun with insanely good reliability?
I'll take an AK over an M-series gun any day because of how hardy those things are.
Also just to add to the convo. In an urban environment where penetration is key, the AK wins hands down!
Americans love range wars, hence their weaponry. While the AK was designed for getting up close n personal!
Frankly, I'd rather have a lower-recoiling, more accurate, lighter round with better soft-tissue wounding capability than a heavy one that can go through walls. I'm guessing China and the former USSR was thinking the same thing when they both dropped 7.62x39 in favour of faster, lighter cartridges that more closely resemble 5.56x45.
Hmm last time I checked China and Russia werent fighting us in Iraq & Afghan... get your head out of the cold war man and get with the times!
I wonder what all the G.Is are complaining about out there if their m16 rifles are doing such a sterling job haha
*Sigh* This has turned from a legit "Will said weapon(s) unbalance the game and overshine other weapons" discussion to a lame "AK-47 is GOD" vs "AK-47 SUXXORZ" thread...
Oooh, do I see another finnish player here? Fan-f***ing-tastic. I thought I was all alone here.
Your point is pretty much what I have been trying to put across here, but sadly, people seem to have problem with "commie" weapons and forgetting that they serve the same purpose. To defeat the enemy. I have gotten weary to the weapon stereotypes and gun porn as well, but I seem to find the Автомат Калашникова quite aesthetically pleasing because of the wooden parts and the rugged, durable design. This beauty has character. Unlike its western plastic counterparts.
The reason why so many people have this impression that AK is inaccurate is because of the Hollywood movies where the American hero can just idly stroll towards hundreds of Kalashnikov-brandishing "evil commie insurgents that are threat to apple pie and the American dream" (not meant to be a derogatory comment about anyones home country, so forgive me, just using colours to add emphasis) and kill every single one of them without missing a shot using "the superior American assault rifle" without even bothering to aim. And does not take a scratch in the process. It is called the "Hollywood Effect".
Hmm? Would this be a good time to assume you are finnish too?
If this is so, then YAY! \o/
You have to agree how good the ak47 is for being made after ww2
does this zeptorem guy have a life?
