Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six

Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six 3: Raven Shield
The AK-47 is a weapon featured in Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six 3: Raven Shield. For the first time in the series, the weapon is usable by the player. It can be modified with a Suppressor, an ACOG Scope, or High-Capacity Mags.
Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six 3: Black Arrow

Its accuracy after the first round is questionable, but the first shot is reasonably accurate. By single and double tapping hostiles, you are sure to come out on top. Aim for the chest, and double tap. This gun is superior to most every other gun at medium-to-long ranges.
Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six: Vegas
The AK-47 is a weapon featured in Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six: Vegas.
Story and Terrorist Hunt
The AK-47 is not available by default in both Story Mode or Terrorist Hunt. The AK-47 appears as the standard issue terrorist rifle in-game. The AK-47 is unlocked by picking it up from a dead terrorist in the Story Mode. This won't be hard at all due to it being in the enemy arsenal in the very first mission of the game. The weapon performs extremely well in both modes, due to it being a powerful but inaccurate weapon. Sights for the weapon are good, but players may prefer a ACOG or 6X Scope. A Laser Sight could be recommended too, since this will slightly increase the accuracy of the weapon. Even though accuracy is slightly above average, the weapon is favored at long ranges. Ammunition for the weapon is very prevalent in both story mode and terrorist hunt, due to it being a prominent terrorist weapon.
The AK-47 is unlocked upon a player reaching the Master Sergeant rank in Multiplayer.
Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six: Vegas 2
The AK-47 is a weapon featured in Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six: Vegas 2. Since Vegas 1 and 2 share the same models and engine, it appears in the same configuration as its Vegas 1 counterpart.

- The AK-47 is modeled uniquely after the original type 1 AK-47 that had a unique stamped receiver that is not present on the later variants of the rifle.
- The AK-47 incorrectly shows the weapon loading the lesser curved 5.45x39mm magazines rather than the correct curved 7.62x39mm magazines.
- If a player reloads an AK-47, one can see that the character reloads the weapon incorrectly by putting an empty magazine in, instead of actually having a loaded magazine.
