The Nykorev (pronounced 'knee-core-ref') is an Epic Ranged Weapon in Unturned 3. It is classified as a light machine gun. It uses the Nykorev Box, which holds 200 rounds. It includes the Nykorev Iron Sights pre-attached by default. The Nykorev takes up 10 slots in the inventory. The Nykorev was added to the game in version along with two other Russian firearms.


Horde Beacon: Available as a reward.

Germany: Can be found at Syndicate locations.

Hawaii: Can be found at unmarked Ranger Locations.

PEI: The Nykorev is found in the Bunker on Holman Island, the airport tower, the sunken submarine, the lighthouse at Caperock, farm sheds, the bank at Alberton, and on Radio Towers.

Russia: It can spawn at the Oil Rig, and Silo 22.

Washington: It can be found as drops from zombies and on the ground at Heritage Valley, Seattle's Bank vault, and on the Radio Towers all around the map.


The Nykorev fires very fast when fully automatic. The Nykorev Box, which the gun uses, can ensure the Player that they won't run out of ammo as quickly since it holds 200 rounds, the second highest ammo capacity of all guns. Its high durability also makes it so the Player would have to repair it less frequently, although it is recommended to repair the gun for every box emptied due to the high ammo capacity.

Compared to the Dragonfang, it has a slightly worse horizontal recoil. However, its overall stats and the availability of attachments helps to counter most negative stats.

Overall, the Nykorev is a long-lasting weapon with moderate combat usability at short-medium range but poor efficiency at longer ranges.



  • The Nykorev is able to hold a huge amount of rounds, even more than any assault rifles or the PDW with the Military Drum.
  • Very fast rate of fire.
  • It allows every type of attachment.
  • Very durable.
  • Has the ability to damage invulnerable structures and barricades.


  • The Nykorev has a noticeable horizontal recoil.
  • It is very loud.
  • There is no semi-automatic firing mode for the Nykorev, making ammo conservation a problem.
  • When in the inventory, it takes up a large amount of space.
  • It is very slow to equip.
  • Slow reload time.
  • Slightly inaccurate.

  • Even though its round is significantly more powerful than that of the Zubeknakov in real life, it does very low damage in comparison.
