The AK-74u is a fully auto submachine gun in COD Black Ops Cold War. The weapon’s strong point is its bullet velocity. It has nearly double the bullet velocity of any other SMG in the game. This means the weapon can handle better in medium to long-range as well as up close.

The AK-74u’s biggest downfall is its ADS time. It literally has the ADS speeds of an Assault Rifle. This should be a priority when adding attachments to the weapon. Check out our best attachments section below. 

Weapon background

The AK74 is a Call of Duty classic and has been seen in many COD titles throughout the years. It has appeared in many Infinity Ward titles as well as Treyarch. 


  • Damage: 38
  • Rate of Fire: 697 RPM
  • Recoil: Moderate
  • Time to Kill: 258ms

Best Attachments

The best attachments for the AK-74u in Cold War are the Spetsnaz Grip and Serpent Wrap. The Spetsnaz Grip reduces both vertical and horizontal recoil. The AK-74u kicks up and to the right so this attachment is perfect. The Serpent Wrap makes your Aim Down Sight Time 25% faster which is a huge increase. If you don’t have this unlocked yet use the Speed Tape. In order to turn the AK-74u into a laser beam, we recommend adding a muzzle brake or compensator.
