Description
The AK17 is reliable and accurate and comes with several mods so that you can adjust it to your liking. Fits both mid to close-distance combat.

The AK17 is an assault rifle in PAYDAY 2, added with the release of the Gage Russian Weapon Pack.

Overview[]

The AK17 is a very manageable weapon, combining the high stopping power and accuracy of the AK.762 with the high rate of fire and stability of the AK. Its moderately high damage lets it eliminate most non-special enemies with a single headshot on Overkill and below, and it has greater accuracy at long ranges than several of its competitors.

One of the AK17's main disadvantages against its cousins is a lack of unique and shared mods, meaning it doesn't have very many concealment-boosting mods. As such, it is very hard to use with Sneaky Bastard and/or Low Blow. Its high fire#rate also burns down ammo quite quickly, and you don't pick up that much ammo, making it hard to sustain ammo.

Overall, this gun is very good at dealing with enemies in close range due to the fire-rate and damage.

Summary[]

Pros

  • Great base Damage
  • High base Accuracy and Stability
  • Reasonably fast fire rate
  • Reasonably deep ammo pool
  • Does not require the Scope Mount in order to mount optics properly, unlike most other AK assault rifles
  • Highest ammo pickup of all 99 base damage assault rifles

Cons

  • No unique mods and limited mod pool
  • Sub-par Concealment

Builds[]

Battle Rifle[]

This build optimizes all combat-related stats with very high damage (101), high Accuracy (84) and good Stability (72). This puts the AK17 on par with other high powered rifles and gives the AK17 a clear lead in ammo pool and ammo pickup rate with the trade-off being the loss of selective fire modes.

Holdout Battle Rifle[]

The AK17 can also be made into a decent backup weapon boasting a concealment of 20 with very high Damage (100), low but moderate Accuracy (64) and high Stability (88) giving you a powerful Plan B weapon.

Skins[]

  • The Cloaked ([✓] AK17 | Cloaked) skin originally had an orange color scheme before being changed to neon-green. Due to this accidental resemblance to the color palette of Cloakers, the creator named the skin after them as per the input of a friend.
  • The Bloodline (AK17 Rifle | Bloodline) skin was designed after Sangres, with an engraving of his mask on the magazine, and the skins in his respective safe.
    • The rifle allegedly belongs to an infamous criminal family and has been passed down to those worthy over generations, despite the weapon the skin is for being less than a year old at the time of writing.

Achievements[]

Russian Arsenal.png Russian Arsenal
Complete any heist from start, using only weapons from the Gage Russian Weapon Pack on the OVERKILL difficulty or above. Unlocks the "Red Machine" mask, "Tricolor" material and "Russian Gamble" pattern.
Have Nice Day!.png Have Nice Day!

Sneaky Beaky Like.png Sneaky Beaky Like

Trivia[]

  • The AK17 is based on the AK-400 pattern Izhmash AK-12.
    • In-game model has its caliber and GRAU designation stamped on the left side of the receiver, namely, above the magazine well.
    • The AK17 does as much damage as the AK.762, despite firing the smaller 5.45x39mm cartridge. Equally strange is its doubled damage compared to the AK, despite both rifles sharing the same ammo type. A more appropriate representation of this would have been the AK-15, a variant of the AK-12 chambered in the classic 7.62×39mm caliber.
    • The AK17's magazine incorrectly holds 35 rounds despite being a 30-rounder in real life.
  • Despite being advertised as having a large amount of modifications, the AK17 has no unique attachments to its name. If anything, it has considerably less in total compared to its older counterparts.
