Best Modern Warfare 2 Kastov 74u attachments

Thanks to the extensive range of attachments available for all weapons in the Modern Warfare 2 arsenal, there are plenty of ways to modify the Kastov 74u to suit any style of play. Here are the best attachments to use on the rifle.

  • Muzzle: Echoline GS-X Suppressor
  • Optic: Cronen Mini Red Dot
  • Laser: 1mW Laser Box
  • Underbarrel: FSS Sharkfin 90
  • Rear Grip: True Tac Grip

This particular attachment combination fills all five available slots as the beta only contains a handful of attachments to use. However, the additions of the Sharkfin underbarrel and the 4mW laser box significantly improve accuracy which is hugely important in close-quarters and mid-range gunfights.

Laser sights are rarely seen in an attachment list but thanks to the compact map design in Modern Warfare 2, the extra hip-fire accuracy comes in handy in situations where there's no time to aim down sights.

For our bonus perk, Fast Hands enables you to use equipment quickly and switch to your secondary weapon as fast as possible which is great in scenarios where there's no time to reload.

Equipment

  • Tactical: Flash Grenade
  • Field Upgrade: Dead Silence

The trusty combination of flash and frag grenades continues to dominate in Modern Warfare 2. Cook a frag to perfection for an additional kill and utilise the flash grenade to dazzle any nearby opponents to guarantee another elimination.
