Modern Warfare 2 Kastov-74U: How To Unlock & Best Attachments

Nov 15, 2022 · 19


Quick Links

The Kastov 762 Weapon Platform has a long list of guns, including the RPK (an S-tier LMG) and the Kastov 545 - a gun that provides good range, recoil control, and increased mobility. However, the Kastov-74U, being an assault rifle that performs almost like an SMG, takes it one step further. This gun is remarkably fast, being remarked as an A-tier Assault Rifle in Modern Warfare 2.

The Kastov-74U has stats remarkably like the Kastov-545 but trades off range for mobility and the ability to aim down sights much quicker. This gun shines in close-quarters gunfights because of its lightweight and fast performance. However, this weapon's manageable recoil and slower-fire rate still make it a good choice for medium-range engagements.

Unlock The Kastov-74U In Modern Warfare 2

To unlock the Kastov-7U, players must jump over a few hurdles by leveling up a few weapons within the Kastov 762 Weapon Tree. First and foremost, you will need to reach Level 23 in order to gain access to the Kastov 762 and then progress this gun to Weapon Level 10 to unlock the Kastov 545 Assault Rifle. Now that you have the Kastov 545, you will then need to level it up to Weapon Level 13, and by doing so, you will unlock the Kastov-74U. Leveling up your weapons in Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is a fairly straightforward task. It can be done by simply playing the game passively. However, the most surefire way to level up your desired weapon is by gaining eliminations with it.

Kastov-74U Best Attachments

Modern Warfare 2 Kastov-74U: How To Unlock & Best Attachments

The attachments we have chosen for the Kastov-74U will play into the weapon's ability to perform well in close-to-medium ranged engagements whilst also keeping the gun fast, accurate and reliable at the cost of a bit of damage range. We have chosen attachments like the RF CROWN 50 to make the recoil much more manageable. The BR209 BARREL, TRUE-TAC GRIP, and the SPETSBAZ S10 STOCK will shorten the sprint to fire and aim-down sights speed, making this gun super quick for high-tense gunplay. The key with this class setup is speed and control, making the Kastov-74U a truly powerful gun when put in the right hands. Below you can find the full list of attachments:

Attachments Pros Cons
RF CROWN 50 (Muzzle)
  • Horizontal Recoil Control
  • Vertical Recoil Control
  • Aim Down Sight Speed
  • Aiming Stability
BR209 BARREL (Barrel)
  • Movement Speed
  • Aim Down Sight Speed
  • Bullet Velocity
  • Recoil Control
5.45 HIGH VELOCITY (Ammunition)
  • Bullet Velocity
  • Damage Range
TRUE-TAC GRIP (Rear Grip)
  • Sprint to Fire Speed
  • Aim Down Sight Speed
  • Recoil Control
SPETSBAZ S10 STOCK (Stock)
  • Aiming Stability
  • Crouch Movement Speed
  • Aim Down Sight Speed
  • Sprint Speed
  • Aim Walking Speed
  • Recoil Control

For all of you who want to equip an optic, go ahead and switch out the 5.45 HIGH VELOCITY rounds for one of the first optics (SLIMLINE PRO, SZ MINI, CRONEN MINI PRO) you unlock for this gun. Doing so will reduce your weapon's ADS speed, but the numerous other attachments will more than make up for that. Swapping the high-velocity rounds will also mean that you cannot make use of the increased bullet velocity, but you are given back just a little more damage range.

Secondary Recommendations

For this class setup, a reliable secondary weapon isn't exactly needed, especially since you will be running Scavenger as one of your perks. Therefore, go ahead and equip either the PILA or the JOKR. These two launchers are great for keeping the airspace clear, taking down those pesky UAVs and higher-end killstreaks like Gunships and VTOL Jets.

Perks

Modern Warfare 2 Kastov-74U: How To Unlock & Best Attachments

This class is not exactly stealthy, eliminating the need for Tracker. Mobility is also covered with the attachments we have provided, meaning that Double Time is not entirely necessary either. Therefore, you are given quite a lot of freedom to try out other perk options. Firstly, we recommend you take Scavenger as one of your base perks. Doing so will allow you to resupply ammo from eliminated players. This ensures you never run out of rounds in your primary. Your second option gives you room for experimentation, but a good perk to choose from is Battle Hardened. This handy perk will reduce the effectiveness of enemy Stun, Flash, Gas, and EMP Grenades, allowing you to recover and get back into the fight quickly.

Your third option should almost always be Fast Hands, especially for weapons that do not already possess a fast reload time. Finally, go ahead and choose Quick Fix. We have decided to drop Ghost because you will not be running a suppressor on this gun, meaning that you will show up on the mini-map whilst shooting regardless of whether there is an active enemy UAV. Quick Fix will allow you to regenerate quickly from incoming damage, so long as you get kills or capture objectives.
