Call of Duty: Modern Warfare: Mobilized
The AN-94 is featured as a common weapon throughout the entire game. It is available to pick up frequently in the USMC missions and the first and third SAS ones. It has very high accuracy and high power as well as the highest ammo capacity and reserve ammo of all assault rifles, though the sights are a bit obstructive. It is capable of taking out an enemy in one or two shots to the torso or higher, unless it's a headshot, which would result in a one-hit-kill. It is probably the most common weapon alongside the AK-74.
The AN-94 is unlocked for the Insurgents factions after the Skorpion with 150 kills. The AN-94 is favored by most players due to its controllable fire rate, high accuracy and high power, as well as more ammo capacity and larger magazine. However, the weapon's fire rate limits its effectiveness in close range if not aiming for the head or engaging the enemy by surprise or behind. Using a sidearm can be seen as a useful backup for close quarter engagements, but it is often less effective than the AN-94 itself.
Call of Duty: Black Ops II
- "Fully automatic assault rifle. The first 2 rounds of each burst are fired at a faster rate."
- — Description in Create-A-Class
The AN-94 is the last in the assault rifle category. It is fully automatic, with the first two rounds of each burst firing at a faster rate. Because of this ability, the Select Fire attachment is not necessary to fire in manual bursts. The AN-94 will kill in three bullets out to mid-long range and up to five at a distance (four if one is a headshot.), but lacks the stopping power to ensure a two-headshot-kill before the damage drop-off. With the Select Fire attachment, the AN-94 can be switched to a two-round burst weapon with extremely low recoil. The player can mimic this effect on fully automatic by lightly tapping the trigger, which may lessen the need for Select Fire in many circumstances (although Select Fire is still preferable for long range engagements). The Suppressor is another excellent attachment for this weapon as the muzzle flash is reduced aiding in accuracy, and the added stealth effect makes it well-suited for more close to mid range firefights. In addition, the faster rate of fire at the beginning means that the AN-94 is capable of outgunning most submachine guns with perfect accuracy. Depending on playstyle, the Adjustable Stock (long range, quick movement) and the Laser Sight (in case of close quarter skirmishes) go hand in hand with the Suppressor, much like many submachine guns.
Overall, the AN-94's unique two-round burst ability, low recoil, good range, and medium damage makes it a popular gun.
The AN-94 is available in Zombies. It is purchasable off the wall in Die Rise and Buried for 1200 points. In Die Rise, it is located in the upside down restaurant; while in Buried, its chalk outline is found in the Gunsmith shop and can be placed at any of six predetermined locations, For a weapon off the wall, it is a very effective weapon, more so than many weapons available from the Mystery Box. It does retain its high rate of fire for the first two rounds and has a high reserve ammunition capacity of 300 rounds. Even when it is not Pack-a-Punched, it is still effective in later rounds.
When Pack-a-Punched, it becomes the Actuated Neutralizer 94000. It has a 50-round magazine and 600 reserve ammo. Initially, it will come with a Reflex Sight attached, but is able to cycle through attachments by Pack-a-Punching it again for 2,000 points. These other attachments include the Target Finder, Foregrip and the Millimeter Scanner.
