If there’s one weapon to be found in every League Play killfeed, it’s the AK74u submachine gun. Since the release of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, the AK74u has been among the best weapons in the game and the one constant in the Call of Duty League.
Professional players have never changed SMGs in the meta and, as such, fans have continued to use the weapon as well. Fans that are looking to copy professional players, or simply get the most out of their AK74u in League Play, can continue reading below.
Best AK74u loadout in League Play
The contrasts between the recommended loadout for casual and competitive are few and far between when it comes to the AK74u. Most of the weapon’s best attachments allow an easy transition for fans looking to get into League Play after playing multiplayer.
However, the one big difference is that most competitive players utilize attachments that aren’t considered “overpowered.” League Play has even banned some of these attachments. Therefore, the choices are more limited as compared to casual play. For this reason, there are some extra attachments to consider when designing a loadout.
- Muzzle: Spetsnaz Compensator
- Barrel: 9.3″ Extended
- Underbarrel: Spetsnaz Speedgrip
- Handle: GRU Elastic Wrap
- Stock: KGB Skeletal Stock
The biggest surprise from this loadout is likely the 9.3″ Extended barrel. Most players would think that a barrel that increases damage range would be in use. However, the Extended barrel is in place to increase bullet velocity. Additionally, it is utilized because some of the AK74u’s barrels are banned.
The rest of the loadout is fairly straightforward. Recoil is lowered with the Spetsnaz Compensator and Speedgrip. Also, mobility is buffed with the GRU Elastic Wrap and KGB Skeletal Stock.
Players will likely find others running this exact loadout in League Play. However, it’s up to the individual player to make the most out of it.
