The AK-47 is right up there with the strongest assault rifles in XDefiant. While it might not be the strongest one overall, it certainly packs a punch and won’t put you at a disadvantage for using it by any means. Of course, with a few select attachments, the AK-47 can be one of the top weapons in the game. If you want to turn the AK-47 into the best AR in XDefiant, then you will need its strongest overall loadout.
Right now, the ACR 6.8 is the best assault rifle in XDefiant without much debate. It has the best stats out of any AR and can eliminate opponents in the blink of an eye. However, with some tuning, the AK-47 can match up with the ACR in most ways. Of course, to do that, players need the absolute best attachments for the AK.
Best AK-47 loadout in XDefiant
My loadout for the AK-47 is going to keep the rifle’s damage profile intact but give it some extra mobility and accuracy to make it a true jack of all trades.
- Barrel: Chrome-Lined
- Front Rail: Hand Stop
- Magazine: Quick Mag
- Rear Grip: Quick Draw
- Optic: Reflex
This loadout makes use of the Chrome-Lined barrel to add some extra damage while the Hand Stop and Padded attachments offer additional accuracy. The Quick Draw Rear Grip makes it so the AK-47 aims down sights faster, giving you a stronger chance of surviving close-range gunfights. Finally, the Quick Mag gives you five extra bullets in each magazine and a faster reload time.
I did opt for an optic with this loadout, as I feel the iron sights on the AK-47 sometimes don’t get the job done at long range. However, if you want to use the iron sights, I recommend swapping out the Reflex optic with the Padded stock.
