This article describes a Pixel Gun 3D weapon. If you're looking for the same weapon in Pixel Gun World, see AK-48 (PGW).
The AK-48 is a Primary weapon introduced in the 2.0.0 update.
It is a black automatic assault rifle that features a scope, making it usable for long range. However, this weapon has little if any recoil and can be used at any range if the user can aim it accurately. It has a lower fire rate than many other primary weapons with a high fire rate, a good capacity and an okay mobility.
This weapon has a black, red, white, and grey body with a black skeleton stock, black handle, grey and white magazine, black and partly red scope, black and red barrel, and a grey under-barrel grenade launcher along with a laser sight that serves no use at the moment. It also has a 4X scope that can help you attack.
- Circle your target and aim for the head for the best kill time and maximize your damage.
- Use the scope in engaging enemies in long ranges.
- Aim for the head to maximize the damage.
- Try to burst fire when engaging the enemy head-on (while your moving).
- Whenever attacking at certain long-range areas, use the scope for more effective shots. This can be used to counter snipers.
- Try to run and jump as fast as you can to avoid the line of fire. If you circle the player, you will likely exhaust their ammo supply.
- Pick off its users from long ranges
- Area damage weapons easily distract and take out its users.
- Shotguns can beat its users in close range.
Have a long ranged weapon in your inventory, as well as a powerful melee.
- (Generally used in lower levels) This weapon provides its users with a decent fire rate, good capacity, and mobility, alongside average/moderate power in most situations. This weapon is universal, the scope allows this weapon to be used in most medium ranges and some long range situations. This weapon is a true primary and a weapon that would be your ideal choice for the most part of a match.
- Before the 8.0.0 update, it used to be in only Campaign, Deadly Games, and Arena with a damage stat of 3. Now it is purchasable for 110 and has various upgrades.
- The AK-48 was replaced by the AK Mini in Arena, Campaign and Deadly Games.
- This weapon is based on the real world Russian Kalashnikov AK-47 Assault Rifle.
- Strangely unlike the real world version, where it has a high rate of fire, it fires a bit slowly for an automatic.
- It is one of the few weapons that change it's model when upgraded.
- This, however, was removed and now, this weapon only have one form, and that is the Up2 form.
- In the Armory, it is placed between the Swat Rifle and the Combat Rifle, and considering the three guns are all based on well-known guns (AK-47, FAMAS F1, M16A3), it suggests a rivalry between the three, and gives a player a choice for which known weapon that they want, even though they have different statistics. As the AK-48 have a slow but strong DPS, Swat rifle has a fast and sneaky gameplay but low DPS, finally the Combat Rifle is a balanced between the two. But one thing they share for an automatic gun is that all have a 4x scope.
- Despite having a 4X scope (according to the armory), it only shows 2X scoping intensity.
