- "Half the size, all the power, double the recoil: there's no riskier way to say "I'm compensating for something"."
- ―Ammu-Nation Description
The compact Rifle is largely based on the AKMSU, although the shortened handguard and the lack of a stock suggest it was based on other similar versions, such as the Draco Pistol or the AK-47 Micro. The weapon is modeled after a variant with a tactical rail, except moved to the rear and having a flash muzzle.
The Compact Rifle is a small but strong assault rifle, dealing more damage than the original AK-47 in exchange for more recoil. It shares a similar fire rate like the AK-47 and has the same range as it as well. It also has a higher damage profile than the Carbine Rifle, Special Carbine and Bullpup Rifle, and is tied with the Advanced Rifle in terms of damage. This is also the first assault rifle in the series to have the ability to be used on a motorcycle or bicycle. Overall, the Compact Rifle is a good weapon to use in medium range combat but is not a wise choice when dealing in short and long range combat due to its huge recoil and low fire rate.
