Best Kastov-74u Loadout For Warzone 2 Season 1 Reloaded

The Warzone 2 weapon loadout meta continues to evolve with the release of the Season 1 Reloaded update, introducing plenty of gun adjustments. As a result, many weapons, including Kastov-74u, got nerfed and buffed after the latest Warzone 2 update, affecting their loadout simultaneously.

Accordingly, prominent Call of Duty content creator "Espresso" on YouTube went through the current attachments list and found a game-breaking weapon loadout for the popular Kastov-74u rifle. With that said, here's a detailed breakdown of Espresso's overpowered Kastov-74u loadout so you can use it to dominate your Warzone 2 battles.

The best Kastov-74u loadout in Warzone 2 Season 1 Reloaded is:

  • Barrel: Shorttac 330MM
  • Muzzle: Echoless-80
  • Underbarrel: True Tac Grip
  • Magazine: 40-Round Mag
  • Stock: Markeev R7

For the Barrel slot, Espresso has suggested equipping the Shorttac 330MM, which is a heavy short barrel built by Sakin Arms to improve weapon speed. The attachment enhances the recoil control, bullet velocity, and hip recoil control at the cost of movement speed, damage range, and hip fire accuracy. To get Shorttac 330MM Barrel, you need to raise the Kastov-74u to Level 16.

The Echoless-80 is the next recommended attachment, offering an increased range, damage, and bullet velocity in a silent package. In addition, the attachment provides recoil smoothness, which makes the Kastov-74u a perfect pick for mid-range battles. The Polarfire-S muzzle can be unlocked by raising the TAQ-56 to Level 14.

The True Tac Grip, a smooth rubber grip designed for speed and faster aiming, is essential for the underbarrel slot. The attachment improves the Aim Down Sight and sprint to fire speed while diminishing the recoil control at the same time. Get the Vaznev-9K to Level 10 to unlock this attachment.

Finally, the 40-Round Mag is all you need to complete this overpowered Kastov-74u loadout. As it's clear from the name, the attachment increases the bullet capacity of the magazine to avoid undesired reloads during breathtaking moments. To unlock this attachment, you need to get the Lachmann-556 to Level 13, TAQ-56 to Level 7, and the Kastov-74u to Level 14.

So that's everything you need to know about the crazy Warzone 2 Kastov-74u loadout after the Season 1 Reloaded update.
