Not to be confused with the A-91

The 9A-91 is a Russian made carbine currently in use with Russian police forces. It is a very advanced carbine, designed to accept 9x39mm rounds. It has an effective range of only 100 meters, but at this range the 9x39mm round is clearly superior to both the 9x19mm Parabellum, 5.45x39mm M74 and 5.56x45mm NATO rounds in terms of penetration and stopping power. It can fit optics via a special rail mount fitted on the left of the receiver, and can also fit a large suppressor.

Battlefield: Bad Company[]

"Russian compact assault rifle chambered for special high caliber ammunition. The steep trajectory and short sight base make the rifle ineffective at long ranges, but up close it packs more stopping power than any other 9 millimeter. "

— In game description

The 9A91 is a weapon featured in Battlefield: Bad Company.


The 9A91 can be found on certain dead MEC enemies in the final mission, Ghost Town. It is very common amongst the MEC troops, but not as common as the AUG.


The 9A91 is the default compact assault rifle for the MEC Specialist kit. Like all compact assault rifles in the game, it has a 60-round magazine with 180 in reserve. The 9A91 can kill enemy infantry in around 15-20 shots. The player cannot use its sights (as with all compact assault rifles and shotguns); aiming only zooms in slightly and increases accuracy.


Battlefield: Bad Company 2[]

"This compact Russian assault rifle is designed for high caliber ammunition inflicting lethal damage in close quarters. High mobility and sound suppressing capabilities make it popular among Russian police forces."

— In-game description

The 9A-91 Avtomat is a weapon featured in Battlefield: Bad Company 2. It is the first Submachine gun issued to the Engineer kit, requiring no experience points to unlock. It has a 20-round magazine, low recoil, a medium rate of fire and high damage.

Despite having the highest damage of all the SMGs in-game, the 9A-91's small magazine and scarcity of spare ammunition can be a nuisance in battle, though using the AMMO specialization can help in this case. As well, several of the other SMGs outperform it at close range. However, its high accuracy and damage make it a good weapon to use at longer distances when firing in 1-2 shot bursts.

Another weak point of the 9A-91 are its iron sights, which consist of a small front post aligned between two larger pieces. Although not necessarily obstructive, there is no protruding element to them, and only a small distinction between the front post and the other pieces. Hence, some players may want to use the Red Dot Sight or the 4X Rifle Scope.


Battlefield Play4Free[]

The 9A-91 is a weapon featured in Battlefield Play4Free. It fires a special 9mm round which allows it to excel in close quarters combat. Its lower rate of fire allows it to be easier to control during full-auto firing, and it's high damage output allows it to take down enemies quickly.



  • In Battlefield: Bad Company's multiplayer, the 9A-91 has exactly the same stats as the American SCAR-L and the Russian AKS-74u.
  • The word "Avtomat" (Russian: Автомат) in the name of the weapon in Bad Company 2 means "automatic" (as in automatic weapons) in Russian.
