The AK74u has been integrated into Warzone for several months but has yet to make an impact in the battle royale despite regular doses of weapon balancing from Raven Software.
This compact sub-machine gun causes havoc in Black Ops Cold War multiplayer, but how does it fare in the Battle Royale? Season 4 Reloaded is underway and thanks to Raven Software's frequent changes to the weapon balance, there are a number of weapons that are viable, including the AK74u submachine gun.
Here are the best attachments for the AK74u in Warzone.
Arguably one of the strongest SMGs that has been added to Warzone, the AK-74u is incredibly easy to control thanks to its steady rate of fire and moderate levels of recoil.
With no attachments equipped, the damage drop-off at long distances is profound, but with a clever combination of attachments, the damage range can be improved exponentially, making the AK a solid weapon of choice in close and mid-range gunfights.
It’s very easy to get confused as to what attachments you should choose in the Gunsmith, so we’ve spent some time finding the perfect combination.
Ak-74u Warzone Best Attachments
- Sound Suppressor (Muzzle)
- 10.3” Rifled (Barrel)
- KGB Skeletal Stock (Stock)
- KGB Target Designator (Laser)
- VDV 50 Rnd Fast Mag (Ammunition)
This particular attachment combination bolsters damage and range in order to improve the AK-74u's performance in mid-range combat. The skeletal stock provides additional mobility, making it very easy to outmanoeuvre any opposition in close-quarters scenarios.
The selection of a large magazine is a no-brainer. With more bullets, you spend less time reloading and more time scoring kills!
- Compensator (Muzzle)
- XRK V Extended (Barrel)
- Sleight of Hand (Perk)
- Stippled Grip Tape (Rear Grip)
- Lightweight Trigger (Trigger Action)
An SMG/pistol combination is a strange one to go with in Warzone, but with several buildings in Verdansk and Rebirth Island, it is very easy to acquire a weapon that performs better at range.
By selecting the M19, it will be very tricky for an opponent to take you down in a close-range duel so move through the buildings and clear them out.
- Semtex (Lethal)
- Heartbeat Sensor (Tactical)
With a lack of range, utilising the Semtex is the ideal choice to deal extra damage. Throw it in the vicinity of an opponent and if you get a hit-marker, rush them and slay them with the AK-74u.
Breaching a building without knowing what could be on the other side of the door is an extremely risky tactic. Use the heartbeat sensor before entering to determine what could be awaiting your entrance.
- EOD (Perk 1)
- Hardline (Perk 2)
- Spotter (Perk 3)
EOD increases your resistance to any enemy lethal equipment that heads your way while Hardline gives you a 25% discount on killstreaks, field upgrades, and armour plates. Who doesn’t love a discount?!
The last Perk we selected is Spotter. This Perk gives you the ability to see any enemy equipment, field upgrades, and killstreaks through walls. This should prevent you from being caught out by a proximity mine or a claymore.
