Mod stats

The AK5 assault rifle is a primary weapon available in PAYDAY 2.

Overview[]

The AK5's stats resemble the Lion's Roar, though it has slightly lower stability, a bit higher concealment (but far more potential concealment), and slightly lower damage.

Since it has a decent amount of total ammo (150 total), it also works fairly well in longer assaults. However, the AK5 cannot fire fast enough to be able to reliably take down the tougher law enforcers and special units.

The mods for this tend to allow the weapon to go one of two ways; lower recoil, higher accuracy; or more mobility with lower accuracy and greater recoil. This changes the AK5 to be either a long range fully automatic or a room clearing assault gun.

For a secondary weapon to pair it with, anything tends to work well. Since it is a versatile primary with decent ammo pickup, one should consider taking a specialized secondary, such as a Judge with HE rounds, or an HRL-7.

Summary[]

Pros:

  • Well-rounded stats
  • Serviceable concealment, though this can be greatly boosted with mods
  • Decent ammo reserve
  • Good ammo pickup rate
  • Decent base reload speed

Cons:

  • Average rate-of-fire
  • Mediocre base stability
  • Not many accuracy-boosting mods 
  • Relatively low base damage

While wearing the "Dolph" mask, kill 100 law enforcers using only the AK5 rifle.

Trivia[]

  • The AK5 is based on the real-life Saab Bofors Ak 5, which is the Swedish licensed copy of the FN FNC. Equipping the Bertil Stock is gives the AK5 the appearance of the Ak 5B but retains the weapon's stock iron sights, while the Caesar Stock, Karbin Ceres Handguard and CQB Barrel turns it into an Ak 5C, albeit one with the original pistol grip and lacking the C specification's duckbill-shaped flash hider.
    • When modified with the Belgian Heat Handguard, the AK5 gains an even more striking resemblance to the FN FNC and becomes a reference to the movie Heat, where it is the weapon of Lt. Vincent Hanna (Al Pacino).
      • The reference can also be seen in the name of the aforementioned attachment.
  • To date, PAYDAY 2 is the only videogame appearance of the baseline Ak 5.
  • The AK5's barcode serial is 1KTG40885.
