First, what's different about the AK105?
  • Slightly more sway
  • More recoil, but less variability than the M4
  • More damage, but it falls off sooner and more severely
  • Slower ROF (600 rpm vs 700 rpm for the M4)


Graphs!
Beyond mid-range, the AK105 is inferior to the M4. It fires more slowly and requires more hits.

Beyond ~17 meters, the M4 will kill a full-health opponent faster than the AK105.

Conclusions
  • For long ranges, stick to the M4.
  • If you're fighting mostly revived enemies, they'll have 30 HP. The AK105 is a one-hit upper torso kill on them out to 24 meters. At ranges beyond 24 meters, both weapons are two-hit kills.
  • For ranges below 17 meters, the AK105 is a better choice.

    How'd you go about getting the data to get these numbers? Interesting stuff! I'll take note to start picking up the AK105 when I see it for those times I'm rushing about.

    It's possible to get the info out of the game's .u files.
