— In-game description.

The AKM is an assault rifle that has been added in 0.45 update of DayZ. [2]


The AKM comes with a detachable handguard, buttstock and factory made thirty round magazine. The buttstock can be painted black or switched out for a folding variant which is found in barracks and other areas containing military loot such as prisons and police stations, you can also find an aftermarket 30 round magazine (which can be painted both black and green), 75 round Drum magazine and a PSO-1 Scope (effective up to 1000 meters). The AKM uses the 7.62×39mm cartridge (same as SKS rifle).

The rifle is effective by default to around 300 - 500 meters (effective only further in the hands of a skilled shooter or with the PSO-1 scope attached) and does fair damage to players with and without body armor.

Real life

The AKM is a 7.62mm assault rifle designed by Mikhail Kalashnikov. It is an upgraded version of the AK-47 rifle developed in the 1950s. It was officially replaced in Soviet frontline service by the AK-74 in the late 1970s, but remains in use worldwide.[3]
