The Best KASTOV-74u Loadout in Modern Warfare 2

The Kastov-74u also referred to as the AK-74u, is an Assault Rifle in Modern Warfare 2 that offers decent Damage output and high stats in Fire Rate, Accuracy, Mobility, and Handling. However, it falls short in its Range and Recoil Control, making it challenging to use in far- to mid-range combat. Nevertheless, it still is substantially effective when engaging in a close-quarters battle. Therefore, if Kastov-74u users are under enemy gunfire in Modern Warfare 2, a practical strategy would be to lure opponents into smaller spaces or narrow hallways for an ambush.


An optimal Secondary weapon for the Kastov-74u's Loadout in Modern Warfare 2 would be the Side Impact, serving as an excellent automatic firearm for emergencies or quick takedowns when low on Primary ammo. In addition, Shock Stick is a solid Tactical for extra CC when pinned down, and Thermite can be used to cut off a pursuer's route or block enemies from escaping an enclosed space. The Perks will generally depend on player preference, but a safe Custom Package for solo combatants would include Tracker, Scavenger, Quick Fix, and Ghost. As for the Field Package, Portable Radar is a must-have utility for better enemy visibility.

As noted above, a wise approach to use the Kastov-74u in Modern Warfare 2 would be to stay within enclosed areas, preferably indoors, where enemies cannot flank players with surprise gunfire. Knowing how to rotate one's position properly is significantly essential compared to most weapons since this rifle is most effective for those who are always on the move. Additionally, staying in one area leaves players vulnerable to getting flushed out with grenades and explosives.
