Best Kastov-74u loadout attachments

The best Modern Warfare 2 Kastov-74u loadout is:

  • Muzzle: Echoline GS-X Suppressor
  • Underbarrel: Lockgrip Precision-40
  • Laser: 4MW Laser Box
  • Optic: Cronen Mini Red Dot

Drastically improve the Kastov-74u’s recoil smoothness and add sound suppression to the weapon by equipping the Bruen Echoline GS-X Suppressor. This attachment hurts the weapon’s damage range slightly, though the trade-off is worth it as your shots become significantly easier to land.

Aiming down sights is the preferred way to fire your weapon, but sometimes you simply don’t have that option on the battlefield. We highly recommend going for the Lockgrip Precision-40 underbarrel which enhances the hip fire accuracy, gun kick control, and aim walking steadiness. This does negatively impact your aim down sight speed, but you won’t feel the difference in-game.

The 4MW Laser Box works great with the Kastov-74u by improving the weapon’s hip fire accuracy and hip recoil control without introducing any negative effects. Finally, slap on the Cronen Mini Red Dot to give yourself the perfect view for taking down enemies.

The Kastov-74u should have no problems giving the enemy team a lot of hassle no matter what mode you pick.
