For the similarly named weapon, see RPK-12.

"The RPK-74M is an improved version of the original RPK developed in the 1950s. Essentially a heavy barreled AK-74, the RPK fires from a longer magazine and has been equipped with polymer grips to lighten the weapon. The RPK-74M also features the same scope mount as the AK-74M and is equipped with a bipod by default for supported shooting. "

— In-game description

The RPK is a weapon featured in Battlefield 4: China Rising and is issued to the Support class.

The RPK retains wooden furniture as seen in earlier Battlefield games. It has a low rate of fire which makes recoil low and accuracy high over a long period of shooting. The muzzle climb is more vertical, but settles quickly close to the point where the player aims making it a useful machine gun at range. Its higher damage gives it an advantage over similar weapons like the RPK-12 and QBB-95 although it has a smaller magazine which makes it more like an assault rifle.



  • Along with the other weapons of the first three expansions for Battlefield 4, the RPK actually has an in-game description, but it can only be viewed when the weapon is unlocked at the end of a round or if it is equipped in a gadget slot using external tools.
  • The RPK originally introduced with the China Rising DLC was indexed as "RPK-74M" and had the statistics of a 5.45 mm weapon, same as in Battlefield 3.
    • The Summer 2015 patch altered the magazine capacity and damage to correctly reflect the RPKs model, and the weapon was renamed to "RPK".
