Best Warzone AK-74u Loadout

The AK-74u is a powerful Black Ops Cold War weapon in Warzone Season 6, so here are the attachments and perks you should use to create the best loadout for this understated SMG.

Season 6 of Warzone is well underway, and Raven Software made various weapon balance tweaks in the patch notes. The AK-74u submachine gun can be an extremely viable option in the Call of Duty battle royale and has not been affected greatly by any recent changes.

Taking it into battle will give you a powerful weapon that can vastly improve with the right attachments and perks.

Here are the attachments and perks to bring into Verdansk ’84 and Rebirth Island in Warzone Season 6 if you want to use the best Warzone AK-74u loadout.

Best Warzone AK-74u loadout Attachments

  • Muzzle: GRU Suppressor
  • Barrel: 9.3″ VDV Reinforced
  • Stock: KGB Skeletal Stock
  • Underbarrel: Spetsnaz Grip
  • Ammunition: 40 Rnd Drum

The best Warzone AK-74u loadout is built to dominate up close while also being useful in medium-range situations. You’ll be surprised at how fast this weapon can rip off plates and down enemies. Pair this with a Sniper Rifle, and your loadout will be effective no matter how far away your target is.

First, we’ve added the GRU Suppressor. This works the same as Modern Warfare’s Monolithic Suppressor, boosting the SMG’s damage at range while keeping you off the minimap. You can also try out the new Sound Suppressor muzzle for close-range encounters.

Next, you should equip the 9.3″ VDV Reinforced barrel to increase its damage range, making the weapon more versatile and effective over distance. The Spetsnaz Grip will reduce both vertical and horizontal recoil, granting more accuracy at medium range.

For ammunition, we picked the 40 Rnd Drum. With an SMG, you want to be as mobile as possible, and some of the mags reduce your ADS speed. This will only reduce your reload speed, which is a worthwhile tradeoff.

And finally, we’ll cap off the best Warzone AK-74u loadout with the KGB Skeletal Stock to increase your movement speed while shooting. Since you’ve improved your accuracy at medium-range, moving faster in the middle of an attack will help you secure kills.

Best perks to use with Warzone AK-74u class

best perks warzone ak-74u loadout class
  • Perk 1: E.O.D
  • Perk 2: Overkill/Ghost
  • Perk 3: Amped

Semtex and C4s are a favorite among Warzone players, so we recommend equipping the E.O.D perk to make you more resistant to explosive damage.

The best Warzone AK-74u loadout loses effectiveness over distance, so use Overkill to pair it with a long-range weapon like the HDR Sniper Rifle or Kilo 141. You can then switch to a Ghost class from a second loadout drop later in the match, letting you keep both weapons while ensuring you don’t pop up on enemy’s UAVs or Heartbeat Sensors.

Finally, we recommend going with Amped for your third perk in this loadout. This lets you switch faster between your guns, so you won’t stay vulnerable for too long as your enemies approach you.

Most recent AK-74u buffs and nerfs

Raven Software has not made any major changes to the AK-74u SMG in some time, but we will update this section with any changes made to this Black Ops Cold War SMG if they are announced.

How to unlock the AK-74u

Unlocking the AK-74u is fairly straightforward since you need to hit Level 19 while playing Warzone or Black Ops Cold War. Fortunately, this is easy enough to get done.

Simply play the game for a couple of hours, and you’ll quickly unlock it, especially if you play during a Double XP weekend or use some double XP tokens.

Best alternatives

If you’re looking for some great alternatives to the best Warzone AK-74u loadout, then you should pick some that are suited to close and medium-range combat. The Bullfrog is an excellent Cold War SMG with an insanely strong headshot multiplier, and the AS VAL has one of the fastest times-to-kill.

Using the best Warzone AK-74u loadout at close to medium range, and you’ll find yourself using an excellent accompaniment to Sniper Rifles in Verdansk ’84 and Rebirth Island.

Activision apologize for using artist’s design in now canceled Vanguard & Warzone skin

Activision have scrapped an unreleased Warzone and Vanguard skin after using an artist’s work without permission.

Published

on

Vanguard and Warzone Season 4 Reloaded skins

Activision admitted to the major misstep of using an artist’s work without permission. The original art was to feature in an upcoming Vanguard and Warzone skin that has since been axed.

Major content drops like new seasons or midseason updates deliver weapons, maps, and changes to Call of Duty games, but they also tend to bring brand-new skins to enjoy. Vanguard and Warzone have seen some noteworthy skins that certainly got players talking.

After all, who could forget the Armored Titan, or Godzilla and King Kong skins? At the start of Season 4 Reloaded, players also received a new Terminator crossover. However, teasers for Season 4 Reloaded also hinted at a mysterious wolf-like skin.

After the wolf skin was teased in an official Call of Duty blog post, it was later inexplicably removed and replaced from the very same post. It turns out, Activision used content that did not belong to them in order to create the aforementioned skin.

When the wolf skin was first teased, it certainly generated a ton of buzz, or rather raised a ton of eyebrows. The anthropomorphic Operator definitely sticks out in a WWII-era Call of Duty game. Nonetheless, fans were excited at the prospect of running around as a wolf in Warzone.

Unfortunately, that idea won’t come to fruition as Activision have confirmed that they completely removed the skin from their planned content drop for Season 4 Reloaded.

It seems Activision overstepping bounds is the reason behind the skin’s cancelation.

An artist claimed that the wolf skin, also known as Samoyed skin, was stolen without their permission. In a strange turn of events, Activision has issued an apology, seemingly confirming the artist’s claims.

In a statement, Activision admitted that they “regrettably erred in our process and have removed this imagery from the game,” apologizing for the misstep.

While fans may be disappointed to lose their chance at slaying in a furry wolf skin, most would agree that if the artist’s claims are legitimate, the greater injustice was corrected as nobody should have their work stolen without credit.

Best Armaguerra 43 loadout for Warzone Season 4 Reloaded

The Armaguerra 43 is an extremely effective SMG, and here’s the best loadout for it in Warzone Pacific Season 4 Reloaded.

Warzone Armaguerra 43

The Armaguerra 43 is an extremely effective SMG, and with the right attachments, Perks, and Equipment you can make the best loadout for it in Warzone Pacific Season 4 Reloaded.

The Warzone Pacific Season 4 Reloaded update brought some major changes to the game’s meta, and players are trying out different weapons following the buffs and nerfs to existing weapons.

SMGs are ideal weapons for close-range combat in Warzone, and the Armaguerra 43 continues to be a great choice even after the small nerf that it received in the Season 4 Reloaded update.

Here’s the best Armaguerra 43 loadout for Warzone Pacific Season 4 Reloaded.

Best Warzone Armaguerra 43 loadout attachments

Armaguerra 43 in Warzone
  • Muzzle: Recoil Booster
  • Barrel: Botti 315mm CII
  • Optic: Slate Reflector
  • Stock: Imerito SA Folding
  • Underbarrel: Mark VI Skeletal
  • Magazine: 9mm 60 Round Mags
  • Ammunition: Lengthened
  • Rear Grip: Polymer Grip
  • Perk 1: Vital
  • Perk 2: Quick

We’ll start off this Warzone loadout by equipping the Recoil Booster muzzle and Botti 315mm CII barrel to boost the weapon’s bullet velocity and recoil control.

The Polymer Grip will further improve the SMG’s accuracy and you can use the Slate Reflector for its unobtrusive sight. The Imerito SA Folding stock and Mark VI Skeletal underbarrel will improve the weapon’s ADS movement speed.

We picked the 9mm 60 Round Mags along with the Lengenthed ammo to ensure you have plenty of rounds to eliminate multiple enemies. The Vital perk will increase the size of the critical-hit area on targets, and Quick will allow you to sprint faster.

Best Warzone Armaguerra 43 Perks & Equipment

E.O.D Perk in Warzone Pacific
  • Perk 1: E.O.D
  • Perk 2: Overkill
  • Perk 3: Amped
  • Lethal Equipment: Throwing Knife
  • Tactical Equipment: Stim

Enemies will often toss grenades and thermite your way during close-quarters combat, so we recommend equipping the E.O.D Perk to make you more resistant to explosive damage.

You’ll want to pick Overkill so that you can pair this SMG with an option like the Cooper Carbine for long-range combat, and Amped to quickly switch between the two weapons.

This SMG forces you up close and personal with opponents, so a well-placed Throwing Knife is the perfect way to quickly remove an enemy from the equation, and a Stim will grant you a quick health boost.

How to unlock Armaguerra 43 in Warzone

Armaguerra 43 unlock challenge in Warzone

While normally the Armaguerra is unlocked via an in-game challenge that requires you to score 10 hip-fire kills in 15 separate matches, the weapon is available completely free in Season 4 Reloaded.

So you don’t have to worry about completing any challenge throughout the rest of the season, as the weapon will automatically be added to your inventory after logging into Warzone.

Most recent Armaguerra 43 buffs and nerfs in Warzone

The Season 4 Reloaded update brought balancing updates for numerous Warzone Pacific weapons, and the Armaguerra 43 received a slight nerf to one of its barrel attachments.

Here are the Armaguerra changes:

Armaguerra 43 (VG)

  • Botti 570mm Precisione 
    • Headshot Locational Damage Scalar decreased to 1.14, down from 1.2

Best alternatives to the Armaguerra 43 in Warzone

Warzone is brimming with great SMGs, if you’re looking for an alternative to the Armaguerra 43 then the Marco 5 is another viable pick for close-range combat encounters because of its mobility and fast TTK.

The H4 Blixen continues to be a powerful weapon choice even after the nerfs it received in Season 4 Reloaded, so be sure to give that a try as well.
