AK-47 is a Primary Rifle weapon that can be purchased in Mexico. It can be sold to (but not purchased at) Big Al's Gun Shop.

The AK-47 was one of the items available at the launch of Torn on 15 November 2004, having been introduced during the Torn City Beta. Torn City Beta. [1]

The AK-47 has a base fire rate between four to eight rounds per turn and can fire 30 rounds (over four to eight turns) without reloading. It has a stealth rating of 2.7.


The AK-47 is most commonly obtained as a purchase from Mexico. It can also be found through city finds, received as a possible result from paying 75 job points to use the Private Security Firm 5* special, "Open Arsenal," [2] and purchased from the Mission reward shop for five to seven Mission reward credits. [3]

200 AK-47s will be restocked in Mexico after being sold out. [4] The amount of time before a restock occurs is half the time it took the item to sell out, rounded to the nearest 15 minutes.

AK-47s can be bought from other players through the Item Market, Bazaars, or Trades, but as Primary weapons do not stack they must be purchased one by one, making it time consuming to buy in bulk.

A high quality AK-47 with a Weapon Bonus can be obtained by opening a Medium Arms Cache.


Due to their relatively high stats, AK-47s with desirable Weapon Bonuses are sometimes used by players that can afford them for general attacking, Faction Warfare, Ranked Wars, and NPC looting.


Players can gain weapon experience on AK-47s once the "CBT3870 Bachelor of Military Arts and Science" Education course has been completed. AK-47s and all primary and secondary weapons gain a 20% damage boost from the "Firearms Expert" 10* special and an extra clip from the "Bandolier" 7* special at Gun Shops.

AK-47s, along with all primary and secondary weapons, receive a 20% and 5% bonus to Ammo conservation from the "MTH3330 Bachelor of Mathematics" and "MTH2310 Discrete Mathematics" courses respectively. The "CBT2850 Study of Rifles" course gives +1 accuracy to all rifles.
