The Operative: No One Lives ForeverEdit
In The Operative: No One Lives Forever the AK-47 referred, the AKM appears in the game. Note the ribbing on the receiver. It is the most powerful automatic weapon in the game and is used by most of the East German STASI guards in the chapter Berlin By Night and also by many H.A.R.M. henchmen in the later chapters. It can also be used by the player itself.
Due to it's rapid fire and relatively high damage, it's a very effective weapon for close quarters fighting. However, because of the tremendous noise of the AK-47, it's less suitable for a stealthy approach.
As mentioned before, the AK-47 can be fitted with a 2x magnification scope, but due to the huge recoil of the weapon the scope is only of use when shooting very large objects, like helicopters, from a long range.
