Is the AK-47 the best assault rifle in XDefiant?

It’s often a debate between the ACR 6.8 and the AK-47. These two assault rifles have the best stats, meaning they hit the hardest and fastest.

The biggest complaint about the AK-47 is its recoil. The recoil can heavily impact your ability to use this weapon at further distances. Luckily, this can be corrected with the right loadout.
