Warzone Season 3 has brought many changes to guns across many classes, and of course, we have a brand new Verdanks '84 map along with three new weapons added.
With this many updates, it is safe to say that meta has completely changed and things you were used to are now no longer working as they did in previous seasons.
Players will need to adapt even to the weapons that didn't receive any new changes, and this includes AK-74u.
And while this Modern Warfare weapon is quite strong on its own, we think that currently, it's best used as a secondary weapon, alongside some of the more powerful guns in Warzone Season 3.
This SMG is perfect for medium-range engagements, in situations where you need to quickly pull it out and finish off your opponents.
In those intense moments, you will need a steady hand and that's where AK-74u jumps in perfectly, as it has almost no recoil.
If you are planning on using AK-74u in Warzone Season 3, check out what we think is the best AK74U loadout.
The best AK-74u loadout for Warzone Season 3
We recommend these attachments for the best AK-74u class setup
- Muzzle: GRU Suppressor
Improves vertical recoil, bullet velocity, and range.
- Barrel: 18.2″ VDV Reinforced
100% bonus on the effective damage range and bullet velocity, exactly what we need to feel more deadly in mid-range encounters.
- Stock: KGB Skeletal
It helps in situations when you need to dodge fire while quickly pulling it out to finish off enemies.
- Underbarrel: Spetsnaz Speedgrip
Additional horizontal recoil control and sprinting speed.
- Ammo: Bakelite 60 Rnd Mag
Not much to say here, 60 bullets is what we think is needed for this build.
And that's it. Keep in mind that while this build can work well even as a primary weapon, it is best used as your secondary, as you can swap it quickly when the situation requires it.
It is perfect for players who like to quickly change their style amidst matches, and jump from long range to mid and close combat.
