With Black Ops Cold War now fully integrated with Warzone, the new weapons in Verdansk are proving to be a big hit. Here, we’ve got the best loadout you can use for the popular AK74u SMG.

While Warzone is more often dominated by long-range assault rifles and snipers, the submachine guns are already proving to be super popular, especially the brand new Mac-10.

However, there are two other SMGs that are seriously impressive in the battle royale: the new BOCW MP5, and the AK74u, which many Cold War players will already be very familiar with.

Let’s take a look at the best AK-74u loadout to max out its potential in the game.

  • Muzzle: GRU Suppressor
  • Barrel: 9.3” Extended
  • Laser: Steady Aim Laser
  • Underbarrel: Spetsnaz Grip
  • Ammunition: 40 Rnd Drum

This loadout is all about maximizing the AK-74u’s already impressive accuracy and range (as far as SMGs are concerned), ensuring it is perfectly viable in close quarters firefights within Warzone.

The GRU Suppressor might become a staple of BOCW SMGs in the game, though you can just as easily swap this out for another Muzzle such as the Spetsnaz Compensator, or not have a Muzzle at all. The problem with these suppressors is that they don’t offer the improved bullet velocity that Modern Warfare’s Monolithic Suppressor does, so might make them less common as players figure out the best Warzone loadouts.

The AK74u is a seriously impressive SMG.

Alternatively, you could opt for a Handle such as the Spetsnaz Field Grip to improve your ADS and flinch resistance, at the expense of sprint to fire time.

This loadout does follow similarly to what your old Modern Warfare SMG loadouts will look like that you used in Warzone, and over time the meta may change, but we’ll be sure to update this page to reflect that. For now, though, it should see you going steady in the battlefield, and help you secure a few wins along the way.
