The AKM is the improved version of the AK-47. It was first introduced in 1959 and served the Soviet Army until it was replaced by the AK-74. Nowadays, the AKM is still in service with the former Soviet states and many third world countries and is also widely used by the Terrorists. It is one of the most common weapons in the battlefield.

- The in-game model isn't that of a true AKM, but actually an AK-47 modernized with furnitures of the AK-103, along with the AKM's compensator.
- This weapon used to be an alternate skin for the AK-47 before it was officially released.
- The texture is actually wrong: the selector switch is still on safe mode, so the gun cannot fire. This mistake also can be found in AKM Gold, AK-47 HQ, AKM Red and AK-74U.
- The reload animation is similar to AK-47, with some few fixes.
- The system names of AK-47 Gold, AK-47 Red Edition and AK-47 HQ are g_ak47, ak47red and ak47hq. However, the textures show that those weapons are based on AKM, not AK-47.
- For Counter-Strike Nexon: Zombies, the Gold version is still named AKM Gold.
- Curiously, the AK-47 10th Anniversary has the system name akmgs, but is still treated as an AK-47 variant.
- When firing the weapon, a bullet model can be seen clearly in the ejection port. Oddly when firing the last round, the bullet is still attached in there instead of going out. This also happens to its counterpart, the HK416.
- Before the Free Update patch, this weapon used to have a level restriction. The players must achieve the required level (depending on each region) or higher to purchase it.
- For Taiwan/Hong Kong region, this weapon now becomes default after the Free Update.
