AK-97 is a tier 5 assault rifle in Wasteland 2.


The grandchild of the venerable AK-47, this weapon has seen more global conflict than any other rifle in history. Reliable, deadly, and cool looking - the perfect combination.

Created in the image of the legendary AK-47, the AK-97 is the latest in the assault rifle line. It was created for the Comintern Combine nations of Europe and Africa, but saw large distribution throughout the world before the war. It is chambered for 7.62mm ammo and fires from a 30-bullet magazine. This highly-respected weapon is fairly commonplace.[1]


The weapon alerts enemies (generates noise) in a 52 unit radius.

The AK-97 is one of the top tier assault rifles in the game. If you can get it, keep it.
