The Pytaek is one of two guns in the Advanced Warfare heavy weapons category that resembles an LMG (light machine gun). This gun, in our opinion, looks and fires a lot like the LSAT found in Call of Duty: Black Ops 2. It deals a decent amount of damage, has low recoil, and a huge ammo reserve to fire off.

CoD AW Pytaek Heavy Weapon
The Pytaek is fully-automatic and quite accurate at medium to long range. One of its biggest issues is the stock sight on it. It features a doubled-circle and a very obstructive numeric range-finder that can especially block your peripheral vision while ADS (aiming down sights). And, as with most heavy weapons, mobility is quite low while carrying it. Other than that it’s a solid weapon.

Most variants are acquired through supply drops but one or two may be obtainable by completing a weapon challenge with the Pytaek.
