The AK-12C has very low TTK for a carbine, being the lowest in its class, due to being the only carbine able to achieve a 2SK to the head at close range and the only carbine to have a 4SK bodyshot at long range, which makes it viable for long range tap firing and close-up engagements. However, that comes at cost of harsh recoil. This is similar to the AK-47, which possesses the same STK (Shots to Kill) and harsh recoil. However, the AK-12C fires significantly faster at 700 RPM vs the 600 RPM of the AK-47. It also has a good reload time, being similar to the AK-12's.
Usage & Tactics
This weapon should be used similarly to the AK-47, seeing how they deal similar damage and have high recoil. This entails using attachments like muzzle brake/compensator or grips like the stubby grip to help reduce recoil to increase the usability of the gun at longer ranges to fully utilize the high minimum damage of this carbine. With good aim, tap-firing, along with an optic of the user's choice (a low-zoom optic is recommended if the user is to adopt a CQC-centric playstyle, which is common when using carbines, while higher-zoom optics can be used if the user can handle the magnified recoil and prefers using a playstyle more commonly seen with long-range assault rifles like the aforementioned AK-47), the AK-12C wreak havoc at any range with its high damage and good RoF.
The high damage and moderate to high RoF essentially makes it a fusion between the AK-47 and AK-12 more than anything, having the AK-12's automatic RoF and the AK-47's high damage.
Pro & Cons
- Very high damage, especially for a carbine.
- Good reload speed.
- Usable at both long and close range.
- Good RoF for weapon with this level of damage
- High recoil.
- Ammo is somewhat rare, drawing only from 7.62×39mm rifles.
- In real life, no such "AK-12C" exists.
- The weapon is somewhat based on the AK-104, which fires the same cartridge and is a carbine.
- The 'C' likely stands for carbine, although it could stand for commando or compact.
- However, the correct designation for a 'carbine' in Russian is U, Ukorochenniy, or "shortened".
- The AK-12C was added to main game on Halloween Update (3.1.0).
