The AK-74u has long been a trusted weapon in Call of Duty games, and that’s no different in Black Ops Cold War. The submachine gun puts out decent firepower with fairly standard accuracy, control, and rate of fire. If you use the AK-74u, you need to level up 55 times to access all of the pistol’s accessories and see its full use. When you do, it’s time to consider your best course of action to get the most out of the weapon with the five limited accessory slots that you are allowed. Here’s the best loadout for the AK-74u in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War multiplayer.
10.3 ”working group
Our first accessory is for the AK-74u barrel, where we chose the 10.3 Task Force. This cannon gives us more firepower in exchange for a bit of initial ammo recoil control. However, don’t worry about the price; We will make up for it with our other attachments. The increased speed of the bullet and effective damage range will pay off.
Next, our bottom barrel is the Spetsnaz Speedgrip, which makes up for some of our recoil control that we lost to the Task Force. This also slightly increases running speed, but slows down your normal and firing speed. It’s not too big of a factor, so we can live with that sacrifice.
VDV 50 Rnd Fast Mag
While the Task Force took an initial magazine out of our AK-74u, the VDV 50 Rnd Fast Mag makes up for it by giving us an additional 20 rounds to equal 50 shots per reload in the magazine slot. The reload speed is also increased by 40%, so we have now taken into account everything that we abandoned earlier for the increase in power. You will see a 25% reduction in downward looking speed, but again, we’ll explain.
GRU stretch wrap
Our handle accessory for the AK-74u is the GRU Elastic Wrap which gives us a 30% increase for downward aiming sight speed and a massive 80% increase for recoil resistance. You’ll see another slight nerf in the speed of your shooting movements, but that doesn’t matter for how fast you see in other areas. Negative sprint to shot time will be addressed in our last attachment.
Our latest attachment is Out of Stock in Stock Section. Instead of wasting 15% sprint time to shoot with the GRU Elastic Wrap, we gained 30% for a total increase of 15% more in that area than we would normally see. There will be a slight impact on the accuracy of your hip shot, but the AK-74u is a relatively accurate weapon anyway, so you should be okay with this sacrifice.
