cold war best ak-47 class

In Black Ops Cold War, the AK-47 is the second Assault Rifle you unlock. Here’s the best AK-47 class to run if you’re looking to make the most out of this iconic weapon.

The iconic AK-47 is once again in Call of Duty. The Black Ops Cold War AK-47 is a powerful and accurate weapon, that can be enhanced greatly by the eight attachments allowed under the gunfighter wildcard. This weapon will be a mainstay in Call of Duty this year, expect it in public matches, Warzone, competitive play and zombies. It is a serviceable weapon that can be helped by attachments.

The optic part is a completely personal preference in my opinion. The micro flex was chosen as it doesn’t take up too much of your screen and looks clean in low visibility. The 18.2 Takedown was chosen because it increased the damage range by a lot while only taking sprinting move speed down 5%. Having the steady aim laser is good for pinch situations where your first or second shot is hip fire.

What the foregrip does is classic and a benchmark around many ARs. It increased horizontal recoil control while not suffocating any other statistic. This can be huge as some of the other underbarrel options take too much away from your gun. The 40 RND magazine just makes it so you can fire more shots, and it does help with multikills. That’s an important part of the Cold War Best AK-47 Class.

The field tape is where this class might get some flak, the flinch resistance is very high, as headshots can doom you in any gunfight usually. There is no drawback to this field tape, like how every tape after it increases sprint to fire time. If you want a good sprint to fire time, you can go for Field Tape over Spetsnaz, Serpent or Gru wraps.


For the stock, the KGB skeletal stock is great because it increases that sprint to fire time while increasing aim walking speed. The only drawback to it is the decreased hip fire, which isn’t accurate anyways on an AR.
