Where to find the Kalash AK-47 in Atomic Heart

In Atomic Heart, you can’t just pick up weapons from the ground or purchase them from some in-game merchant. Instead, you need to first find the blueprints for a weapon and then craft it using NORA, the station that allows you to upgrade your weapons and add cartridges to them. As for the Kalash AK-47, you won’t be able to acquire it at the very beginning of the game as you will first need to make your way into the Vavilov Complex.

During your time in the Vavilov Complex, you will be assigned the task to find four canisters scattered across the complex. While searching for one of them, you will enter a room called the Cold Lab. This is the room where you’ll find the Kalash AK-47. Before you can get your hands on it, you will first need to fill the canisters with plants. Afterward, you’ll gain access to a chest that will have the blueprint for the weapon inside it.
