How to unlock the AK-47 SMG in XDefiant

Similar to the RPK-74 light machine gun, unlocking the AK-47 will require you to deal a total of 4,000 damage, but with assault rifles. Also similarly to the LMG, you can choose modes such as Zone Control where enemies will focus their attention in specific areas to shoot them. In the case of the AK-47, using assault rifles in Hot Shot is also a great way to deal damage given the power and fire rate of assault rifles and the frequency in which you will encounter enemy players.

Best AK-47 loadout in XDefiant

Iconic is perhaps the word I would use to define the AK-47, which is perhaps the most popular gun in recent history. Since it provides a great covering fire but can also be used to head first into the enemy lines, we will want to prioritize ADS speed and spread. Level up your AK-47 once you unlock it and equip the following attachments to get the best out of it:

Let’s give our AK-47 a fire rate bonus with the Brake Muzzle and pick up the Recon Barrel to gain some ADS speed, also improved by the Rear Grip. The Pistol Front Rail will greatly improve your minimum and maximum spread accuracy and the Padded Stock will recover some of your ADS Stability, ADS Flinch Control, and Recoil Recovery. Finally, the Fast Mag will give you a great Reload Speed bonus and five more bullets in your magazine.

You will probably need to use some Weapon XP Boosters since the AK-47 only features Master skins at the moment. This could change whenever Season 1 comes to XDefiant, so I would suggest sticking to your attachments and learning the different modes in the game. That way, you will be able to use the AK-47 in an elegant yet deadly manner.
