Selective-fire assault rifle fed from a detachable magazine. Modernized variant with a lot of attachments available. Uses 7.62x39mm rounds.

The KA-M is a rifle in DayZ Standalone. It will spawn with a wooden stock and handguard by default.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

The KA-M is to be considered an excellent all-around weapon due to its considerable power coupled with its capacity for longer range engagements using the PSO-1 scope. However, the KA-M suffers from extreme recoil which results in a serious loss of accuracy and difficulty in leading a target even at medium ranges if fired in bursts or the fully automatic mode. Therefore it is recommended to only use the KA-M's fully automatic mode at close range.

Attachments[edit | edit source]

The KA-M has many attachments with various purposes, these parts may commonly be found in military installations and buildings.
