- Description

The gold-plated AKMS is a tier 2 assault rifle.


Considered the pinnacle of Soviet engineering forged from the minds of countless brilliant physicists on drugs, this weapon is obviously an AKMS, but with the exception that it's gold plated. This makes a difference, because gold's atomic structure is made of a plethora of protons, making the element heavier than usual gun alloys.This feature makes such a major difference because of the following benefits. One being, that the weight of a golden AKMS allows the gun to become highly more accurate than the originial AKMS. This is because the weight creates an equilibrium between the recoil and the gun itself, allowing for deadly accuracy, but that's not the only benefit that comes with the weight.

In addition to the equilibrium ratio between the recoil, the gun's accuracy is improved even more through weight distribution, since guns with heavier weights lower the recoil of the weapon, when you are hit by enemy firepower the gun's shaking feature is somewhat lower than most guns since the weight of the gun stops rapid spasms because it requires more strength similar to a Siberian brown bear to operate.

This is a gun all freedom fighters love, a brilliant combination of true all-Russian not-safe-for-kids 7.62mm round far more hardcore than the vastly inferior 5.56mm American counterpart, chambered inside gold-plated forged steel and plywood. It doesn't break, jam or overheat. It will shoot whether when covered in mud or filled with sand. It's so easy even children can use it, and they do. Ever since the dissolution of the Soviet Union, the golden AKMS had become the Russian people' greatest export. After that comes vodka, caviar, Communist Manifesto and suicidal novelists. One thing is for sure though: ain't nobody is lining up to buy their cars.

Sarcasm aside, the Gold AKMS is a heavy variant of the AKMS with a number of difference in statistic. Probably due to the plated gold, the Gold AKMS is significantly heavier than its regular steel version, which leads to a mobility borderline to be considered a heavy weapon (less than 45 mobility). However, the Gold AKMS boasts an impressively higher accuracy, considerably lower recoil and longer range capability. Complemented with a much lower visual recoil, and the excellent 47 damage and 42 penetration of the regular AKMS, the Gold AKMS is much more potent at mid-range combat comparing to the base steel variant. However, the biggest drawbacks of the Gold AKMS are the lack of attachment which put it in a significant disadvantage comparing to the regular AKMS in the long run, and a glitchy aiming animation that will trouble many users.

Interestingly, the Gold AKMS, alongside with the Raging Judge revolver were re-added back into the game, while the TKPD Sniper and EBR CQB were not.


Currently, the Gold AKMS doesn't have a W-Task.
