# What is the best weapon in Escape from Tarkov, 2021?

What is the best weapon in Escape from Tarkov? Many players will have this question, but in my opinion, there is no best weapon, only the best weapon for the player. If I had to choose the best weapon, then I would choose these three weapons. For convenience, this article will be divided into 3 parts: 1-AK-74M series assault rifles, 2-M4A1/HK-416, and 3-SVD-S/M1A. If you have enough Tarkov Roubles, you can buy these weapons and experience them.

# AK-74M Assault Rifle

I would like to start with the AK-74-M assault rifle. This assembly has the following characteristics: ergonomics-67.5, vertical recoil-50, horizontal recoil-139, initial speed-910 m/s.

**This assembly includes:**

The approximate cost of this assembly is 273.289 rubles + 25.000 rubles for the pk-2 tactical grip, sold by the skier merchant at loyalty level 4.

**Then we have the AK-74N assault rifle**

This assembly has the following characteristics: ergonomics-63.5, vertical recoil-47, horizontal recoil-124, initial speed-910 m/s.

**This assembly includes:**

The approximate cost of this assembly is 309.961 rubles + 25.000 rubles for the pk-2 tactical grip, sold by the skier merchant at the 4th level of loyalty.

In conclusion, I would like to say that I personally would choose the AK-74-M because, although it has more modest recoil characteristics, they are not worth an overpayment of 36,000 rubles and, moreover, the M version has higher ergonomics.

**M4A1 and NK-416**

Now we will disassemble the M4A1 and NK-416 assault rifles.

**Let’s start with the M4A1:**

This assembly has the following characteristics: ergonomics-76, vertical recoil-32, horizontal recoil-89, initial speed-889 m/s.

**This assembly includes:**

The approximate cost of this assembly is 407.551 rubles + 25.000 rubles for the pk-2 tactical grip, sold by a skier at the 4th level of loyalty.

**Next, we have NK-416, and this is the assembly I got:**

This assembly has the following characteristics: ergonomics-63, vertical recoil-37, horizontal recoil-99, initial speed-961 m / s.

**This assembly includes:**

The approximate cost of this assembly is 344,669 rubles + pk-06 for 34,000 rubles + 25,000 rubles for the pk-2 tactical grip, sold by a skier at the 4th level of loyalty.

Summing up, I can say that of these two assault rifles I would choose the NK-416 because, although it has more modest characteristics, unlike the M4A1, it costs 28,000 cheaper + you get a muffled barrel, which means that the flash from your shot will not blind you, unlike the email, and it will also be more comfortable for you to shoot at long distances due to the higher bullet speed.

# SVD-S and M1A

In the final paragraph, we will analyze the SVD-S and M1A marksman rifles

**Let’s start with SVD-S:**

This assembly has the following characteristics: ergonomics-33, vertical recoil-153, horizontal recoil-338, initial speed-825 m/s.

**This assembly includes:**

The approximate cost of this assembly is 223.641 rubles + 25.000 rubles for the pk-2 tactical grip, sold by the skier merchant at the 4th level of loyalty.

**Now let’s move on to M1A:**

This assembly has the following characteristics: ergonomics-50, vertical recoil-43, horizontal recoil-77, initial speed-776 m/s.

**This assembly includes:**

Attention, the approximate cost of this assembly, taking into account the 4th loyalty level of the peacekeeper, is 196.995 rubles + 25,000 rubles for the pk-2 tactical grip sold by the skier merchant at the 4th loyalty level.

In this case, with a probability of 1000%, I would choose the M1A, since it is cheaper, has much better characteristics than the SVD-S, and has more powerful ammunition.
