AK5C - the workhorse of BF4?

lately I've been playing a lot of SA conquest and rush, trying to unlock the SA weapons (it's not easy on xbox 360 ok?!). Most of the time I've been running engineer with the AK5C, Compact 45, rockets and repair tool. This has been my go to "workhorse loadout" for capping and holding objectives and moving around the battlefield for quite some time now. Recently I've noticed how effective I am at taking out enemies at long range with the AK5C.

When I started playing I thought that it was just a mediocre weapon, but now I've realized what a power house it actualy is when it comes to taking out enemies at all ranges due to its low recoil. I started experimenting with different attachments and situations to use it in, and it seems to work well in any circumstance.

I think it comes down to the fact that everything about this gun is very well balanced. The incredibly easy to control recoil pattern which is basically straight up, the slight hipfire advantage of being a carbine, the 700 rpm ROF; low enough to allow for accuracy but still high enough to not be outgunned by every enemy you face; it's just a very allround weapon. It doesn't really outperform any other weapon; ARs are better for ADS accuracy, there are many guns that outperform it both in rpm and hipfire as well as damage. But it seems to be the greatest at being good overall.

Straight from Gamescom: "The AK 5C is a weapon that any player can pick up and learn to use easily."

In other words, it's designed to be easy to use. From the get go it was designed as a jack of all trades, master of none. Their wording had given me concern that this would be the M16A3 of Battlefield 4 because they described it exactly the same way the M16A3 was. A good all-rounder.

With this, I'll rid MGO3 of infestation. Sans bad gameplay MGO3 will be torn asunder. And then it shall be free. People will suffer, of course - a phantom pain.

Reddit and Konami will rewrite the records... And I will be demonized in human memory. But... The thirst for good gameplay that I have planted will infest MGO3. No one can stop it now. The Rebalance Mod will unleash that thirst unto the future.

If that is the case though, it makes me wonder the point of the ACE 23 being balanced as it is (I know it is not the M16A3, but it is by far the easiest AR to use).

With the AK5C as "that gun" it would seem like class specialty weapons should have avoided the middle ground as much as possible.

I will just add this chart (that I made for another thread) here:

Most-Used Weapons by Time




It's the most-used weapon in the game (by time equipped).

I cannot for the life of me understand what the SAR is popular for.

LevelCap made a video about how good the SAR is at long range, so the average player now believes it better than the AK-12 in every way. That's the only reason I've personally heard people state when I ask why they use it.

The G36 with the recent mega buff it got is easier than the Ak5c, the 50 rpm difference is not horrible yet 650rpm is slow.


am I the only person who enjoys rush?

Surprised to see the SG553 so low and the CZ-805 and 3A1 not even on it.

Guess only if some putz makes a video telling you something is good is the only way they will use it.

It's popular among console players, due to the recoil.

That and your average Battlefield scrub treats LevelCrap's videos like gospel, so ofc errybody gotta be like "UH LVLCAP SES IS GUD, MUST USE HUR HUR HUR HUR HURRRR" :thumbdown:
