The AKU-12 is an unlockable all classcarbine in Battlefield 4. It acts very similarly to the AK-12 assault rifle, having less range and accuracy, but greater hip fire accuracy. It also has a unique feature in which burst fire yields a higher RPM. The recoil is also extremely low, with only a slight upward pull. Due to its moderate fire rate and low recoil, it is a balanced choice for mid-range engagements, and the player will not run out of ammo as quickly as with some rapid-firing weapons.
