RPK-Gold is a machine gun in CrossFire. It's an advanced variant of the normal RPK. It's available only in Black Market in Z8 CF, CF Europe and CF Vietnam. It has an increased ammo capacity to 120/120 rounds, slightly higher damage dealing, faster firing rate and better accuracy than the original RPK, and a much lighter weight comparing to other machine guns, making it a very good weapon in Mutation Mode, Hero Mode, and Hero Mode X. In fact, many players choose this gun for playing those modes because of its versality; it's not too heavy to move around with and hasgood accuracy allowing for aiming at mid and long ranges. Furthermore, it has a decent firing rate allowing for better accuracy, and it's shorter reload time is more suitable for modes such as Mutation Mode than weapons such as the M249 SAW. All in all this is a perfect gun for hunting Mutants.
