AK-47: The main rifle used by terrorists

The AK-47 is the most commonly used weapon in CS2, often making up most of the terrorist team’s firepower. The AK-47 is known for its one-tap potential and it’s effectiveness at both short at long range. Its high damage and armor penetration make the rifle a popular choice for players looking to take down enemies quickly.

Despite its effectiveness, mastering the mechanics can be a challenging task. However, taking the time to become familiar with controlling the spray is time well spent. With practice and patience, mastering the AK-47 can reward you with more kills.
