The AK-47 is an assault rifle commonly featured in the Uncharted series. It is an average rifle, typically used as an early to mid-game weapon by the enemy forces encountered during that time. It is not particularly strong in any way, with only middling stopping power, but will prove effective at medium range engagements, or point-blank firing if so needed. Its accuracy drops off sharply after a few seconds of continuous fire.
The first AK-47 used by Nate in Drake's Fortune was taken from a mercenary in "A Surprising Find" in the Amazon, and in the following chapter from pirates in "Plane-wrecked" on the hidden island. He proceeded to use the rifle repeatedly, as it was readily available due to how often the pirates used it, up until "Sanctuary?", after which they were entirely replaced with the M4 rifles used by the mercenaries. The AK-47 appeared for the last time in "The Heart of the Vault", in the namesake treasure vault, where Nate found a large group of AK-47s and Moss-12s that were left behind by pirates that got killed by descendants.
In the multiplayer component of Among Thieves, this weapon is the starting primary weapon in standard-rules online multiplayer matches, thus making it the most used weapon in multiplayer. It is found on all maps in various locations. It has high damage power but low range and accuracy. The recoil is high, therefore it is best suited to close range engagements.
The recoil has been lowered slightly from Among Thieves. It is one of the first weapons unlocked and available from the start, the other being the G-MAL. The AK-47 comes with mods in online multiplayer, with a total of seven: Call Out, Scope Zoom, Reload Speed, Clip Size, Blind fire Accuracy, Accuracy, and Max Ammo.

In the beta for Drake's Deception, a modification could be attached to the gun that increased the rate of fire. This feature was removed from the final release.
