"Light machine gun, developed to replace the RPK machine gun with 7.62x39mm ammunition for low impulse round 5.45x39mm.  Adopted in 1974, along with an AK74 rifle."


The RPK-74 is a tier 2 light machine gun.  


The RPK is the first CR LMG available for purchase. However, for its rather hefty price tag comes a sub-par performing package, featuring below-average damage and penetration along with high recoil and a low rate-of-fire. Despite it's extremely low accuracy, the RPK-74 does not have access to a tactical device, which further detriments its capability. However, the high magazine capacity and good ranged performance can make the RPK a versatile weapon in short to mid-ranged combat with the right skill tree.


"Machinegun, equipped with collimator sight that allows to fire more accurate."


To acquire the W-Task for the RPK-74, one must achieve 4 stormkills with the weapon. The RPK-74 with the W-Task equipped is renamed to the RPK Rakurs, which will add a Rakurs sight attachment to the gun. This makes aiming over range easier.


The RPK-74 is customizable with silencers, holosights, scopes, collimators, muzzlebrakes and camos.
