This page contains information about the mod version of DayZ. Standalone information is available here.


The AKM is an effective close to medium range assault rifle which can be found in all military loot spawns. It is more powerful than any of the other AK variants, but is also much louder. It will kill a normal zombie with a single shot to the body, while "viral" zombies take several rounds to kill.

It is the only AK with zeroing capabilities, and can be zeroed up to 800m. By default, you can press Page Up and Page Down to adjust the zeroing on the AKM.

This things a beast, i love that its one of the only zero-able assault rifles in the game at the moment.

This gun is great for beginners and is also quite good for experienced players too. Just don't fire it in the middle of a big city.

This is an amazing gun. It's saved my life so many times. d:

Just edited... What idiot thought there was a burst fire mode on an AK?

I think the iron sight on this gun can be slightly difficult to use at night due to the small pin. Apart from that, great gun.

One of the best assault-weapons in the game ! 1 shot 1 kill !!!

Ugh... found two of these and two mags in a fire station in elektro, went down to the church to look for a new sidearm and saw a zombie right outside before the church after i were finished with the search. Thought; Let's try the new gun! 50 zombies later, and more incoming i realized it was time to flee to the hills when the entire zed population of cherno came after me and i had six rounds left :/

Brilliant first timers gun. This was my first ever gun find, found in a Deer Stand. Amazing 1 - 2 shot to body of Zeds, good mag size and good iron sights. Also, good audiable range.

Power and accuracy-wise, it's a great gun, but I can never get used to the bulky and cramped ironsights. Just because of that, I usually swap it out for an M16 or an M4.

If you can get past the horrid sights though, you won't find a more reliable gun without heading north.

My favorite gun ever! Is the beastest gun in the game for a CQB player like like to go into town to loot and fend from bandits. I killed so may people with this gun I even dream about it. I suck with snipers so this is the best thing for me and can take out snipers with the zeroing is just and awesom weapon. Ammo is very easy find also.

In case anyone didn't know, this is a modernized AK-47 hence the bigger bullet size

dont shoot these in barracks all you do is ring a dinner bell because zombies will funnel into the barracks and if you don't have al lot of ammo well...
