Modern Warfare 2 brings back the most popular and deadly AK-74u, now named Kastov-74u. It is now categorized as an assault rifle instead of the lethal SMG it was known as back in the day.

In MW2, Kastov-74u can bag you many games due to its mobility and higher output damage. Additionally, the gun resembles the older version of the AK-74u SMG that was available in the previous installments of the franchise.

It is crucial to understand the gun’s mechanics and have in-depth knowledge of the options in terms of loadouts, class setup, and attachments associated with the weapon.

To unlock Kastov 74U, you must progress through the Kastovia weapon platform. First, reach level 23, which will unlock Kastov 762 and the Kastovia platform.

Continue playing with Kastove 762 until the platform is at level 10. This will unlock Kastov 545. Once that is available, start progressing through its weapon tree.

Reaching Level 13 with Kastov 545 will finally unlock Kastov 74U in Modern Warfare 2.

This guide will clear all your confusion, ensuring you come out as a beast, providing cover to your rushers, and taking the peaks essential to winning the games.

Best Kastov-74u loadout


  • Barrel: BR209 Barrel
  • Muzzle: Echoline GS-X
  • Stock: FT Tac-Elite Stock
  • Magazine: 45 Round Mag
  • Rear Grip: Demo-X2 Grip

With a decent Aim Down Sight Speed alongside Movement Speed, the best choice for this loadout is the BR209 Barrel.

Pairing this Barrel with the Echoline GS-X Muzzle, you can go into a completely silent mode and kill your enemies with good Sound Suppression with Recoil Smoothness.

Using the Demo-X2 Grip.45 Round Magazine will be the most suitable choice for this loadout since you’ll be engaging in gunfights quite often.

Best secondary weapon

FTAC Recon will be your second choice of weapon for this loadout. It is the best Battle Rifle in the game. It allows for safe play regardless of what your position is on the map. It is capable of killing any opponent with just three shots.

Best perks and equipment

Overkill is a good perk for this loadout. This perk allows you to wield two primary weapons for more damage. Double Time and Fast Hands will provide an increase in your mobility and weapon handling.

For an ultimate perk, use Ghost to be invisible to UAVs and out of the radar. For a better chance of survival, use Stim.
