Using the Compensator as Muzzle Attachment
It is true, AKM has one of the hardest recoils to control especially in auto mode. The muzzle attachments can help reduce the recoil considerably. A compensator is the most likely muzzle attachment choice for most pro players. A compensator tries to reduce the muzzle movement while the gun is bursting in Auto mode. Using a compensator is the first option if you are using the AKM for the first time or planning to use it during the game. It will considerably reduce the movement of the muzzle while you are trying to get the headshot on your enemy. A compensator works on a principle of redirecting the muzzle gas in a way that causes less pressure on the muzzle and prevents it from moving around during the fire.
This allows you to have denser spray shots on the enemy without the bullet missing the target while having an auto burst. It will also help in landing more shots on medium to long distance enemy one after the other without moving the muzzle that can disrupt the bullet path. An AR Compensator is designed to compensate the vertical and horizontal movement of the gun while in a burst mode or auto mode and allow for more controlled shooting. Using an AR compensator will reduce the vertical recoil by 15% and the horizontal recoil will be compensated by 10% making it easier to control the AKM in auto mode.
The Drag-Down Method
If you are serious about using AKM as your primary weapon in the game. It will be helpful to learn the Drag-Down technique to better control the AKM in auto mode.

AKM having higher damage makes it even more compelling to have full control over the auto mode firing to take down enemies wearing level 3 armor and helmet.
To master the technique start dragging your free look finger down while you are shooting. However, you need to use two finger firing for you to fire with one finger and drag down on the screen while shooting using the other finger. On the emulator, you have to drag the mouse down while firing. This ensures your gun compensates the vertical movement and allow you to land more shots on your enemy. It is not an easy technique to adapt it right away, but if you want to move higher up in the rankings this method can be the difference maker. Most, pro players do use this method already and this is not only applicable for AKM but a great way to control the recoil of any gun in the game. It will also be useful for you if you have not found the compensator to reduce the recoil at the beginning of the game. As this method is totally depended on your skills and practice, you are more likely to master it rather looking for a compensator.
Why AKM should be your Choice of AR
If you are willing to make the most out of AKM and control it on your will, using a compensator along with the drag-down approach will greatly improve your gameplay and kill ratio. This will ensure you land more of your shots on target and have more chance of killing your enemy. An AKM is a deadly weapon in short range with the highest damage rating with Groza.
