The Rak is a Polish submachine select-fire weapon that fires from an open bolt. Unlike Most SMGs firing from an open bolt position, the RAK features a reciprocating external breech bolt. — In-game description

The PM73 RAK is a sub-machine gun in DayZ Standalone.


It features a relatively unusual bolt design, the bolt being its pistol-like slide which is locked to the rear position when cocked, and moves forward when the trigger is pulled. While this design makes the recoil somewhat more controllable, it makes it harder to maintain a decent sight picture.


  • The PM73 RAK has been removed somewhere prior to 1.0 stable and has not been re-introduced as of 1.10.
  • The PM73 RAK was added to the game files in 0.47, first spawning in 0.48 at the Static Helicopter Crash Sites.
  • The PM73 RAK is the second sub-machine gun added in DayZ Standalone.


Weapon attachments are any accessories or devices that attach to a firearm in order to add, improve or modify the weapon's functionality or performance. In DayZ Standalone these attachments take the form of sights/optics, handguards, buttstocks, muzzle devices, barrel and handguard attachments and gun wraps.
