The RPK-74 variant yields more damage and portability than the original RPK.
The RPK-74 also features the AK-style design, with a 100-round drum Magazine to fit into the Machine Gun category.
It is decent at medium range, but its full potential is realized in close encounters.
The RPK-74 somewhat bridges the gap between the M60 and the MK.48, with firepower the same as the AK-47 and with the modest fire rate that most AK-series weapons have. The reload rate, portability and draw speed of this weapon is actually slightly faster than the other Shop-bought machine guns.
In addition, the RPK-74 has an advantage as it is slightly more accurate than most other MG's in the game. Note that the front of the gun has a black color on it instead of the regular wood of the RPK.
