The AK74u is a Russian submachine gun that appears in Call of Duty Black Ops.


The AK74u appears in "Crash Site", "Rebirth", and "Redemption". It's seen attached with Grenade Launchers and Extended Mags.


One of the most commonly seen weapons, the AK-74u is a very versatile weapon. It's exceptional at close range, while holding its own at long range. It ranks third in damage in the SMG category, dealing 35 damage per shot and dropping off to 20 at long range.

Unlike its Call of Duty: 4 counterpart, the AK74u does not have a stock attached. This change is merely visual, and has no noticeable effect on gameplay.

Its clear ironsights negate the need for sights. Many players prefer to use Warlord with the AK74u and attach Grip and Rapid Fire, essentially giving the weapon high stopping power without giving up any long range capability. It is the only submachine gun that is capable of attaching a Grenade Launcher.

I never understand why people sometimes refer to this as a "noob" weapon.  The simple matter is that it is easy to use, and very effective.  One note, in my experience (and I'm not claiming to be an expert), the Warlord combination of grip and rapid fire is not worth it.  Choosing one or the other and going with Sleight of Hand is a much better choice.  If you want to use warlord, perhaps for the increased grenade count of Warlord pro, then try rapid fire and dual magazines, because you will BURN through ammunition, and Flak Jacket is a much better choice for a close assault SMG class than Scavenger.
