Fans can finally jump into Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2's multiplayer and those wanting to rack up wins with the powerful Kastov-74U can read our guide on how to unlock it below.

The Kastov-74U was introduced in the beta for Modern Warfare 2 and quickly became a must-have weapon during matches. This assault rifle is ideal for short-to-mid combat scenarios as it carries a strong damage and fire rate output. Its emphasis on this range of combat also makes it a weapon with fantastic maneuverability.

A great reference point for the Kastov-74U would be the popular AK-74u SMG. As players know, the AK-74u has been an extremely viable option that provides a superb amount of versatility for any combat scenario that players could find on the battlefield. It has even been featured on our own Warzone Weapon Tier List.

Modern Warfare 2 boasts an impressive armory filled with exciting new and classic weapons for players to enjoy. While some will be available from the get-go, many will require players to level up both their Military Rank and weapons.

To get your hands on the Kastov-74U, you will first have to complete the following steps.

  1. Reach Rank 23 to unlock the Kastov 762
  2. Reach level 13 with the Kastov 762 to unlock the Kastov 545
  3. Reach level 13 with the Kastov 545 to unlock the Kastov-74U

The new weapon progression system is one that's likely an acquired taste considering how straightforward progression was in previous COD titles. At least now, you can unlock attachments for future weapons along the way.
