Rudd, 60, was due to stand trial on Tuesday at the Tauranga District Court in New Zealand but he changed his plea to guilty before the trial began.
Rudd was arrested in November and charged over an incident on September 26 in which, according to a police summary of facts, Rudd rang a man he knew and threatened to kill both him and his daughter.
He was also charged with possession of methamphetamine and cannabis.
The drugs charges were laid after police executed a search warrant at Rudd's home on November 6.
Police say Rudd had 0.71g of methamphetamine and 130g of cannabis in his possession.
He was also charged with attempting to procure a murder when he appeared in court in November, but the charge was dropped the following day.
AC/DC in February announced it had replaced Rudd with former drummer Chris Slade ahead of its world Rock or Bust tour.
Rudd played on recording sessions for the album by the same name, but was unable to promote the album late last year while dealing with the charges.
