Escape From Tarkov Wipe and Update 12.11 have arrived, and again we wonder which AK build is best for early and mid-wipe? The answer is simple: the free one.

This is what we show: In this guide, we will show you how you can get an AK 74 almost free of charge over and over again. Of course, this also includes properly modifying them. So which AK 74 builds are the best for the early and mid-wipe of Escape From Tarkov?

The best AK-74 builds for early & mid-wipe

Secure free AK: In order to secure an almost free AK 74, you have to have expanded your hideout a little. To be specific, you will need a workbench. Now all that’s left is a VPO, which you can often loot from Scavs. You can optionally buy them at Skier or Fence.

You now have to disassemble this VPO in your workbench to get 2x weapon parts. Then you buy from Prapor:

  • Wood AK-74 handguard (6P20)
  • Izhmash AK-74 wooden shoulder rest

So for every VPO that you dismantle, you will get two AK-74 assault rifles. To repeat this, you only need the two parts mentioned above once. But now on to our first AK build for Tarkov 11/12.
