As a staple of the Black Ops series, the quick-firing sub-machine gun is one of the perfect tools to deal maximum damage and rack up an insane number of kills on the alpha build of the game.

In 1973, a design competition was started for the adoption of a fully automatic carbine, inspired by the US experience in Vietnam and the XM177, which ultimately led to the AKS-74U.

With such a wide range of attachments and plenty of extra components to consider, what exactly is the best loadout for the AK74u?

For those wanting to get in amongst the action, the AK74u is the ideal weapon to get your hands on.

The Diamatti is a great pistol and one you should consider with running an aggressive class like the AK74u, due to its ability to fire three bullets at once

Lethal

  • Frag Grenade

With aggression being the name of the game, the frag grenade is the lethal equipment of choice. Launch a hail Mary into a congested area of the map for maximum impact.

Tactical

  • Stun Grenade

Your stun grenade is going to do a great job at slowing down enemies and disrupting them from running behind cover or firing back.

The Best Ways To Play

When it comes to making an impact with the AK-74u, the best way to play is with plenty of aggression and speed.

By getting up close and personal with the opposition, they have minimal chance to counter your superior speed combined with the immensely powerful SMG in your hands.

Either trap the enemies into a specific area of the map to create an unbreakable spawn trap or head straight towards them, cleaning up anyone attempting to halt your rampage.
