Selective-fire assault rifle fed from a detachable magazine. Shortened version of KA-74 with some compatible attachments. Uses 5.45x39mm rounds. — In-game description

The KA-101/Temporary is a short assault rifle in DayZ Standalone. It is chambered in 5.45x39mm Rounds.


Weapon attachments are any accessories or devices that attach to a firearm in order to add, improve or modify the weapon's functionality or performance. In DayZ Standalone these attachments take the form of sights/optics, handguards, buttstocks, muzzle devices, barrel and handguard attachments and gun wraps.


Sights and Optics







  • Until Beta, the weapon was called the AKM, but was renamed for legal reasons.
  • The AKM was added in the 0.45.123906 Experimental version.
  • The model of the KA-M is made by @artguyharry.
  • The KA-101/Temporary is the only Kalashnikov in DayZ Standalone which can use multiple types of magazines.
  • In order to attach the bipod to the KA-M, one must first spray paint the handguard rail black.

This is the carbine version of the AK-74, the successor to the AKM. It uses the smaller 5.45x39mm. The shorter length makes it better for close quarters or indoor combat.

The sights are arguably better at quick target acquisition than the full size AK-74, however this rifle is also far less accurate, mostly owed to the shortened barrel and much reduced sight radius. The dispersion of the KA-101/Temporary is significantly higher than most other automatic weapons. Both stock and naked its dispersion is twice that of the AK74, and three times fully equipped - before a bipod. This does not make the KA-101/Temporary a poor weapon, but unless used as a secondary weapon to a Mosin, SKS, et cetera it is recommended to switch to another assault rifle when possible.

The KA-101/Temporary is one of only three automatic weapons without a replaceable hand guard, PM73 RAK, and Steyr AUG are the other two.
