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 and bad 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 in long ranges.



  • Circle your target and aim for the head for the best kill time and maximize your damage.
  • Try to burst fire when engaging the enemy head-on (while your moving).
  • Use this rifle to either weaken or finish off opponents.
  • Whenever attacking at certain long-range areas, use the scope for more effective shots. This can be used to counter snipers.
    • Because this rifle produce recoil when firing, it is recommended to equip Turbo Charger.


  • Try to run and jump as fast as you can to avoid the line of fire. If you circle him/her, you will likely exhaust their ammo supply.
  • Pick off its users from long ranges.
  • Take advantage of hit indicator to hunt and kill the gunner.
  • Area damage weapons can easily distract and take out its users.
  • Shotguns can beat its users in close range.

—Weapon description in Gallery


  • 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 Coin 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.
