How to unlock the RPK-47 LMG in XDefiant

Be prepared to deal some major damage, because to unlock the RPK-47 light machine gun, you will need to deal 10,000 damage with LMGs. Now, this will mostly depend on your skill and how many enemy players you can shoot down and kill, but you can pick game modes such as Zone Control or Escort that will have you either defend or attack positions across the map. This will allow you to pinpoint possible enemy paths, enabling your LMG to rain fire upon any enemies that dare to come after you.

Given that the RPK-74 is more optimized for covering fire due to its size, weight, and rate of fire, then you will want to make every single bullet count, which means that you need to keep your recoil under control. Leveling up your weapon will allow you to equip the following attachments:

First off, the Muzzle Booster will increase your Rate of Fire slightly, and its recoil debuffs will be countered by the Heavy Grip, Precision Stock, and Stabilizing Barrel. The Superlight Front Rail increases your ADS and Movement Speed, which is very important for slower weapons like LMGs. Finally, Quick Mag will decrease your reload times and will give you five extra bullets to shoot.

During the pre-season period, the only skins available for the RPK-74 are the Mastery skins, meaning that you will probably end up spending a lot of time with this LMG if you want to unlock its Gold skin. Make use of Weapon XP Boosters so that the journey shortens and your attachments unlock faster. That way, you will have a gun that will pack quite a severe and powerful punch while also conserving stability.
