The AK in Rust, actually titled the Assault Rifle is the most popular gun in the game, and for good reason. The Rust Assault Rifle deals 50 damage per hit up to 188 metres, which makes it one of the most powerful guns in the game. Unlike the MP5, the Assault Rifle is best used at medium to long ranges due to it being an Assault Rifle and not an SMG. While it’s magazine can’t be extended, the AK holds 30 damage, which is enough to drop 4-5 people if your accuracy is good enough.
