As one of the newer weapons in Call of Duty: Warzone, the AK74u is a menace on the field. Here is the best AK74 class in Warzone Season 3 Reloaded.

Once players get their hands on the AK74u, they can add it to their weapons arsenal. The SMG is perfect for medium-range gunfights. In some situations, it can be a terrific secondary weapon to switch to when in a pinch and its destructive capabilities can be crucial when caught off guard in close to mid-range fights.

Best AK74u Class in Warzone Season 3 Reloaded

Players can go a myriad of routes with what attachments they want to put on their AK74u. But what we found the best is a combination of these attachments:

  • Muzzle: GRU Suppressor
  • Barrel: 9.3” VDV Reinforced
  • Stock: KGB Skeletal Stock
  • Underbarrel: Spetsnaz Grip
  • Ammunition: VDV 50 Rnd Fast Mag

The GRU Suppressor boosts your max range at a 10% boost. One could also say the same with the 9.3” VDV Reinforced Barrel, as it increases Bullet Velocity as well. Although a slower setup, this nearly puts back the weapon to what it once was - pre-nerf. 

Add the typical selection of Stock, Underbarrel, and Ammunition and it’s all at the same level as other loadouts.

When it comes to Perks, secondaries, lethals and tacticals, here is what we found to be the best:

  • Perk 1: E.O.D.
  • Perk 2: Overkill
  • Perk 3: Amped
  • Secondary: CR-56 AMAX
  • Lethal: Semtex
  • Tactical: Heartbeat Sensor

These are all pretty straightforward and when it comes to the last three, can all be personal preference. But when it comes to the perks, we found that Overkill and Amped are terrific picks. As the AK74u is an SMG, carrying it with a secondary longer-range weapon can be key to close the distance gap. This also can be said for the weapon as a secondary. Amped adds to this with the ability to swap between the weapons faster as well.
