The 5.45x39mm round is a Russian assault rifle round developed in the 1970’s. It was first used in the AK-74 assault rifle.


The 5.45x39mm type of ammunition was developed in the early 1970’s for use with the new AK-74 assault rifle. The round and rifle were adopted by the Russian Ground Forces when the development of the rifle was completed. There are also weapons other than the AK-74 that use this round, such as the AEK-971, AN-94, and RPK-74[1].


The 5.45x39mm round is a mediocre round overall. It has low damage, and it has a shorter range than most rifle rounds, making most of the weapons that use this round a poor choice for bandits and most other survivors that depend on high damage amounts in their weapons in order to kill other players. However, the magazines that use this ammo are very common, so it is a recommended round for dispatching zombies and non-helmeted military zombies.


  • This rifle round has the lowest damage and effective range of all the rifle rounds currently in the game.
