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

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

  • 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.

Warzone players want Raven to switch two POIs on Caldera

A Warzone player has rearranged the POIs on Caldera after the community has expressed their discontent with the map design.

Published

on

Warzone’s new map hasn’t exactly been received very well by players and now the community is suggesting that Raven should switch around two of the POI’s.

Warzone‘s new map Caldera hasn’t exactly been getting positive reviews since it was introduced. As well as bugs and glitches on the map, players have also not been happy with the layout, with many missing Verdansk.

With that being said, one player decided to come up with a way to make the map better by rearranging the POIs.

Reddit user ARES_GOD put a post up in the Warzone subreddit of the Caldera map. The post is captioned: “Hey @RavenSoftware just a thought about Caldera think this would feel better… (Changing POI location).”

Upon inspection, players will notice that the map of Caldera in the post is slightly different from the actual layout of the map. In fact, two of the most popular POIs have switched positions with each other, which the player feels would make Caldera “feel better.”

The two POIs in question are Peak and Capital, which have been switched in this version of the Caldera map. Peak is usually right in the center of the map, which many players aren’t too fond of, as one of the comments states: “Yeah i just dont like peak in the middle.”

The massive mountain directly in the middle of Caldera makes it hard to rotate, as traversing up rocky terrain is notoriously difficult in Warzone.

The idea is to switch this massive height with Capital, a more level POI that would likely make it easier for players to rotate through. Players seem to like the idea, as the post has over three hundred upvotes, with comments expressing their fondness of the change: “The way you edited the map like this is incredible…more buildings at the center for strategizing.”

However, one comment has pointed out that the logistics of the change won’t make much sense: “But whos going to go to an island resort NOT on the beach. And the capital needs a water way for trade. Not very feasible. Though I agree, peak dead center, not my favorite.”

This probably won’t be the way in which Raven updates Caldera, however, they have confirmed that changes are coming.

Thanks to the Raven Software Trello board, we know that there will be a few Double XP events upcoming:

  • Double XP, 2x Weapon XP, and 2x Battle Pass XP from Feb 18 – 21

These special Double XP events usually occur during a weekend, as it naturally gives players the most time as it’s away from school hours and generally when people are off work.
