In this guide, I reveal the three best builds for the AKM in Escape From Tarkov (as of 2023). As part of our "Best Weapon Series", you'll find the best weapons & builds -- freshly updated.

"AKM is rubbish!": The AKM has long been considered the black sheep of the Escape From Tarkov weapon market and is hardly ever played. I disagree and claim: With the right builds, the AKM in Tarkov is one of the best weapons in the game. That's why I built and tested three different models. In this guide, I'll tell you all the parts, costs and the most important statistics for each AK build!

 

The 3 best AKM Builds in Escape From Tarkov 2023

Key Facts about the AKM: The basic price of an AK-M on the Fleamarket is around 40,000 rubles. We'll add that to the total price later. We will also withdraw the resold parts from it. In its standard version, the AK-M has the following stats:

  • Recoil: 194
  • Ergonomics: 38

Best AK Alternative: MK 47 Mutant Build in 2023

Addition to the meta-build: Usually different handguard than the 5.45 design "Aggressor" is used here. The VLTOR CMRD handguard is actually slightly better, but together with the additional rails it would cost you 11,000 rub more.
