Battlefield 4 AK-12


Battlefield 4 AK-12The Battlefield 4 AK-12 is an assault rifle used by the Russian faction in multiplayer. The AK-12 in Battlefield 4 is one of the new weapons introduced in the game, and can be unlocked and used by the assault class. The Battlefield 4 AK-12 is modernized version of the AK-74M, which is also available in the game.

The AK-12 is the newest rifle in the Russian military, and is currently undergoing testing. It’s expected to replace the AK-74M and other AK rifles as the main rifle in the Russian military. Like other assault rifles, the Battlefield 4 AK-12 can be equipped with attachments such as silencers, scopes, and more.

There are two other rifles based on the AK-12 in the game. The RPK-12 light machine gun, and the AKU-12 carbine.

    Actually it is 600 rpm (auto) and the firing modes are semi, burst and full auto. burst firing will allow the AK-12 to shoot 1000 rpm.

    AUTO: 600 rpm
    BURST: 1000 rpm

      680 full auto and they patched it to 750 at burst

    I cant wait for this weapon. I know some people are going to whine about their AK47s not being in the game but this beast is going to perform epically. With a fire rate like that in the hands of a skilled player would be able to beat faster ROF weapons and with a muzzle velocity of 700 m/s it’ll be easy to take down those long range targets.

      Actually the best AK variant is still the AEK. Yet the AEK was still never adopted by the Russian military. The AK12 actually has a horrible design flaw of an open bolt. Which basically means this rifle (in real life) is going to have a lot less accuracy than any other AK design. Open Bolts are generally only used in Light and Heavy machine guns for cooling reasons.

    Well it shoots 7.62 rounds so it should be effective. Dunno which it uses in game…7.62x51mm nato’s or 7.62x39mm. At least it shouldnt use 5.56’s cause those are useless…although it can use a variety of carts in real life

      Actually it is proven that the 5.56 is better than the 7.62 in (effective) range, accuracy, and stopping power. The 5.56 is a very good bullet.

    When I played the beta this was the gun that was default for the US Assault for me. It even had the US flag on the side of the rifle. I was confused yet intrigued.

    It shoots at 680 rpm at full auto. It also shoots at 750 rpm at burst. It is very versatile if you are willing to try and master the burst. Recoil is noticeable, but manageable. Pretty good in my opinion

    the ak 12’s standard round is actually “the poison bullet” which is a 5.45x39mm round. which is of no concern for battlefield 4. anyway it was created to have more velocity, lower recoil and have interchangeable ammunition with the ak74u. carbine version of the ak47 Automatic Kalashnikov model 1947.

    There are a lot of people who like and love ak-12 but (no offence) the gun is a little bad. In bf4 it is for newbies and has a terrible ROF otherwise realoding time and other abilities are OK.
