CoD AW AK12 Assault Rifle Overview

The AK12 is another full-auto assault rifle found in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. This gun was also seen in the previous title, CoD: Ghosts, and was a player favorite in that game. It dishes out high damage for an AR, has low recoil, and a medium rate of fire. One of the major drawbacks of this weapon is its rather slow reloading speed.

CoD AW AK12 Assault Rifle
The AK12 is generally pretty accurate and you don’t notice recoil much at all when using it. Generally speaking, it typically takes 3 to 4 shots to take down an enemy with this gun. At longer range it may take as many as 5 shots. It definitely helps to aim for the head on enemies that are further away. Remember to burst fire to retain accuracy when aiming at enemies at range.
