Gameplay tips regarding the AK-74 assault rifle.
Shadow of Chernobyl Edit
In SHoC, the AK-74/2 is best used in Semi-Automatic with a PSO-1 scope, so headshots are easily achieved. If fired at full auto, aim at the lower torso so the recoil brings it up to a headshot. This weapon is semi-easily available throughout the entire game at the Military base in Agroprom. It is reccomended that you keep it over the Obakan, since it has higher handling, almost as high accuracy, and can use the GP-25 grenade launcher.
Clear Sky Edit
How to get an AK-74 without resorting to buy one, combat against stalkers in Clear Sky or installing patch 1.5.10 This tip is how to get an AK-74 after you exit the swamps. There is a corpse just after the Loner Base at the side of the road. To get to him follow the northern road that leads to the Garbage, do not approach the entrance as there is a Military Garrison there however you will find a corpse just beside the road, killed by Boars with an and a Fort-12Mk2 or Martha (Beretta 92F) pistol. Use your map to find him as a gray dot. However as of patch 1.5.10 you will automatically start with an AK-74 which pretty much eliminates this tip.
