Battlefield 4[]

The AK 5C is a weapon featured in Battlefield 4.


The AK 5C is found as a collectible in Suez near a fire north of the broken V-22 Osprey on the deck. It is equipped with a Holo (1x), Magnifier (2x) and Heavy Barrel. It sports an Atomic Naval finish.


The AK 5C is the first Carbine weapon to be obtained; requiring 15,000 points while playing as the Engineer kit for it to become unlocked. It is a very solid starting weapon for the carbines, having a 700 RPM fire rate and manageable recoil, although adding a Muzzle Brake will further reduce the recoil. Damage is average among the carbines, usually being 2-3 shot kill at closer ranges, and 4-5 at longer ranges. The AK 5C also has a very fast reload speed, even among the carbines, allowing the user to quickly get back into action upon a reload. The recoil pattern softly travels in a near-perfect right diagonal line, and as such, it is one of the easier guns to get used to and recoil correct. A Stubby Grip suits the AK 5C very well, allowing for accurate bursts at longer ranges, while a Ergo Grip or Laser Sight are better for more agressive, close-quarters oriented players. Overall, the AK 5C is a well-rounded choice for new and experienced players alike, not being too weak or powerful in any one category, allowing itself to fill many roles.

The Iron Sights are sharp, although an optic will give a less-obstructed view. Additionally, it has by far the highest bullet velocity among carbines (one of the highest velocities of all weapons), making it more suited to mid-range, and a good choice for using a Suppressor. As such, higher power optics may be a good pick for the AK 5C, granted the player can control the recoil with said optics.


Battlefield 2042[]

"Average rate of fire and stopping power, but its great handling, versatility and good accuracy allows it to punch above its weight consistently."

— In-game description

The AK 5C is a weapon featured in Battlefield 2042, introduced in Turning Point season. It is unlocked by reaching tier 19 in the Battle Pass.

Among all assault rifles, The AK 5C possess superb ranged accuracy and control, Making it a powerful ranged assault rifles that can compete against the myriad of ranged assault rifles, DMR and even sniper rifles if one dares so. However, Its average damage leaves much to be desired when under pressure.

The AK 5C possesses a consistent damage model of 22 until 100 meters (75 meters for Close Combat ammo type) - This makes the AK 5C an amazing answer to ranged fights when combined with its accuracy and control, But however. It will easily lose out to the closer ranged orientated weapons such as submachine guns, assault rifles and shotguns.

High-Power on the other end will give it a similar damage model to the SFAR-M GL. Possessing a 50 meters 4 hit kill range will make it slightly more usable at closer range and slightly worse at longer ranges making its use completely up to the users preference. However, It has one advantage in that one can freely swap between underbarrel grips which may be an attractive option to the average player.

Close Combat which has been mentioned decreases its damage range by 25 meters over Standard Issue but boosts the rate of fire to 720 RPM making it slightly more forgiving at closer range. This may be used for the majority of situations but the decrease in velocity and minor increase in horizontal shake may annoy some users.

Attachment wise the AK 5C is basic amongst assault rifles save for its unique attachment; Its unique access to the Heavy Barrel attachment. Which makes it even better at ranged engagements by decreasing its aim down sight spread and improving its velocity, With the caveat of decreasing its fire rate by 50 RPM and increasing its vertical recoil.

  • The AK 5C has 4 different sound effects for dropping an old magazine, inserting a new magazine, and tapping the bolt catch.
  • The AK 5C has a unique firing sound that has a faint metallic "ping" noise, and it is much more noticeable when using a Suppressor, similar to the Bulldog, which also has a metallic clanking sound when firing.

  • "MILITARY PROPERTY" is faintly written on the upper receiver.
