RPK Stats

  • Rate of Fire: 540RPM
  • Shots to Kill:

With the stats above we can see that the RPK is very similar to the AK47. It will take out enemies with 3 shots. With the addition of the longer LMG barrel. The RPK has amazing range and still manages to hold its 3 shot kill range.

Best strategy for the RPK

The RPK is a long-range beast. Being an LMG it excels in long-range combat. It is best used in objective-based game modes when holding down areas of the map. It especially works well in Groundwar because of the large and open lines of sights these maps provide. You essentially get the AK47 with lowered recoil and an increase in bullet velocity. In addition, the added drum mag makes it very easy and quick to reload.
