If you want high amounts of firepower in each shot-down range, then it’s hard to beat the AK-47 in the XDefiant assault rifle class. This weapon has always been the main model of a slow fire rate with high damage, and in this loadout guide, I’ll go over all the attachments you need to make the AR a menace. Here’s the best AK-47 loadout in XDefiant.

XDefiant – Best AK-47 Build and Attachments

When you decide to use the AK-47, you want to prioritize mid-range fights where you can control the flow of the fight. That means using attachments with a bit of extra precision. But we want to maintain some of the base ADS speed as well. All of the necessary attachments can be found below.

AK-47 Loadout XDefiant:

  • Barrel: Recon
  • Front Rail: Hand Stop
  • Optics: Reflex
  • Magazine: Quick Mag
  • Rear Grip: Quick Draw

Our two main ADS attachments are the Recon Barrel and the Quick Draw. I highly recommend them so you can still remain competitive against ARs or SMGs that have far more mobility in general. It also doesn’t hurt that the barrel will help with red dots on the mini-map, leaving you with more stealth to utilize.

After the ADS attachments on the AK-47, I like to use the Hand Stop for the front rail. This rail piece is going to help with recoil control and Stability. Some movement speed is lost in the process, but that’s not the main priority on a heavy AR in XDefiant.

The last two attachments are the Quick Mag and the Reflex. Quick Mags are great for nearly every weapon due to the extra reload speed, ammo capacity, and the lack of negative. Then I add the Reflex for a more precise sight with low visual recoil.

Another great option for an AR on the opposite end of the class is the M4, and I have the best M4A1 loadout for you in XDefiant.
