The subject of this article appears in the Metro Exodus video game.


The pinnacle of the Kalash family, this assault rifle boasts massive improvements compared to its prececessors in terms of firepower, accuracy, ergonomics and weight. It also has a lower rate of fire, making it easier to control in burst mode. The weapon's advanced design makes it hard to maintain in the postnuclear world, degrading its reliability.

— In-game description


The Bulldog (Russian: Бульдог) is an assault rifle first introduced in Metro Exodus and essentially a bullpup configuration of the Kalash. The origins of the Bulldog likely predate the Great War, but the look of the weapon suggests it was modified or extensively repaired with whatever spare parts were available after the war. Nevertheless, it is an advanced weapon design, similar in some ways to Kalash 2012.

Overview[]

Although at first glance its design might seem to be based on that of the Kalash, the Bulldog is significantly better than its elder brother in the amount of damage it deals, how easily it handles, how much lighter it is, and how accurate its shots are - all in part due to its bullpup configuration. Furthermore, with a lower rate of fire, each burst from the rifle is more controllable than shooting from a Kalash.

The Bulldog's downside is that it is much rarer than its more traditional brethren from the Kalashnikov family, making it more difficult to find spare parts (not to mention the complex mechanics that require skillful maintenance to keep running). This usually makes the older Kalash more popular among survivors of World War III.

Variants and Customization[]

The Bulldog shares all three of its upgradable stocks with the Kalash and Shambler, All three of its upgradable barrels, its 30-Round Magazine and its 45-Round Extended Magazine with the Kalash, but it can equip a 60-round High Capacity Magazine, unique to this weapon. The Bulldog is able to equip all three laser gadgets. The Bulldog is able equip the Reflex Sight, NV Scope, and x6 Scope.

Trivia[]

  • Some similarities between the Kalash 2012 from Metro 2033 and Metro: Last Light with the Bulldog can be seen, such as the fact that both firearms are bullpup assault rifles which build on top of the previous Kalashnikov designs. Additionally, one of the possible configurations for the Bulldog is called the "2012", in a fairly obvious reference.
  • The Bulldog seem to have been a pre-war prototype that was fully assembled following the war, as evident by its jury-rigged appearance and lack of fine machining on its parts, its frame having been apparently crudely braised together. Similarly, Tokarev concludes after examining the weapon that it must be custom-made, while Artyom's journal calls it a prototype weapon that only saw use after the end of the war. However, considering that the gas block and barrel appears to be taken directly from the AK-series of assault rifles, or the gas block appears to be too tall (and due to this needs a bent or curved gas tube), it also might have been assembled from spare or scavenged parts from two or more different rifles.
  • Oddly, despite being described as the pinnacle of the Kalash family, the Bulldog doesn't actually appear to be based on the traditional Kalash/AK design.
    • Most of its design features seem to have come from the Vepr, a Ukrainian bullpup rifle that is based on the Kalashnikov action, but deviates heavily from it design-wise.
    • The receiver of the weapon also appears to be that of an SVU, which is a bullpup SVD. This can be seen by the side scope mount on the left side of the weapon above the pistol grip along side the lack of a scope mount further back on the receiver like on a traditional SVD. In that case, the rifle would be rechambered from it's original 7,62x54mmR cartridge to use 5,45x39mm rounds from AK-74 pattern of magazines instead.
    • The Weapons Trailer calls the long-range configuration of the weapon the Vychlop, and refers to the Bulldog designation as a nickname.
  • The Bulldog's mismatched gas block and bent tube from the block to the receiver hints at the weapon being converted either to use a direct impingement gas system, or at a radical modification of its short stroke gas piston.
