The AK-47 is a classic gun. Even someone who’s never seen an action movie or played a first-person shooter knows what it is.

That’s why it should come as no surprise that the AK-47 is included in the opening roster of weapons in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War.

Sadly, the AK-47 isn’t that great of an option at the outset without attachments, so the process of ranking it up might be a bit of a pain. But once you can load it up with some equipment, it quickly becomes a powerful assault rifle and one of the better options in the game.

Using the game’s Gunsmith feature, the AK-47 and any other gun can be equipped with attachments that suit a number of playstyles. Whether you like to run and gun or sit back and pick off enemies from a distance, you can customize the weapon to your liking.

Here are just a few of the best AK-47 loadouts in Black Ops Cold War.
