The AK is probably the most popular weapon in video games, particularly PUBG Mobile. They are included in pretty much all modern shooters, and Battlegrounds Mobile India is not an exception. The AKM in BGMI is the modern version of the AK-47... however, it has the same weaknesses of high recoil.

In this article, we are going to showcase a complete guide on how to use the AKM in Battlegrounds Mobile India.

1 - Strength & Weakness of AKM in BGMI

  • Reload Duration: 2.90s
  • Rate of fire: 0.1s
  • Ammo: 7.62mm
  • Damage: 47

AKM is one of the most popular though not the best ARs in BGMI. It uses 7.62 mm ammo and can be found across all maps in the game. Overall, it is considered one of the harder weapons to use and master, mainly due to the challenging recoil pattern. The AKM has top-tier damage and a good headshot modifier, along with a large magazine of 30 bullets. It is best used in short to mid-range fights.

The weaknesses of the AKM are its slow fire rate, slightly shorter range, and high recoil. While you probably can do short bursts in close to mid-range, it is best to tap-fire in long snipes.

With suitable attachments, this gun can become a makeshift sniper rifle, as its headshot damage is the highest out of all ARs.

2 - What attachment to equip on the AKM?

The AKM has only 3 attachment slots: magazine, sight and muzzle. The most important attachment you should get on this gun is probably a compensator. It reduces recoil and increases stability, making shots more stable, the weapon more controllable, especially when being continuously fired.

About sight, it is best to get the longest scope you can, as the AKM's sniping ability is fairly decent. Quickdraw is probably the best magazine on this gun, as you need the reload speed.

3 - How to control the recoil of AKM 

The AKM's vertical recoil is the main problem. You can deal with that using the drag-down method - dragging the free-look finger down slightly while shooting. However, you can also fire in short bursts and fix your aim in between the shots.

Set a proper sensitivity setting and get a scope – 4x and 6x for middle/long range and Red Dot for close-range fights.

The AKM is an improved version of the legendary AK47.

Sensitivity settings for the AKM: 

  • No Scope: 80%,
  • Red Dot/Holo/Aim Assist/2x: 60%,
  • 3x: 36%, 4x: 20%, 6x: 18%, 8x: 8%. 

The easiest way to get the most out of the AKM is by playing in a way that complements the more aggressive, close-range style. If you’re not playing in an aggressive way in close range, you might want to consider swapping to a gun that complements your own playing style. Aggressive and in-your-face styles are mostly used by assaulters who often get into aim duels.
