  • Muzzle: Echoless-80
  • Barrel: ShortTac 330mm
  • Laser: Schlager PEQ Box IV
  • Stock: Spetsnaz S10 Stock
  • Magazine: 45 Round Mag

We’ve built the best Warzone 2 Kastov-74u loadout as a Sniper Support weapon, perfectly complementing a long-range Sniper Sniper. You won’t be beaming enemies across Al Mazrah, but it’ll be dominant in those close-mid-range fights.

We’ve kicked off the best Kastov-74u loadout with the Echoless-80 Muzzle and ShortTac 330mm Barrel. Combined, you’ll find the Kastov-74u has much more accuracy, range, and your shots will be hidden from the minimap.

Next, we’re improving the Kastov-74u’s mobility with the Schlager PEQ Box IV Laser which helps with ADS speed with no downside, and the Spetsnaz S10 Stock which improves both ADS speed and movement in speed in general at the cost of some accuracy.

Finally, the 45 Round Mag is vital for Warzone 2 as you’ll need enough ammo to take down multiple opponents without reloading.

Best Warzone 2 Kastov-74u Perks & Equipment

  • Perk Package: Warden
  • Tactical Equipment: Flash Grenade
  • Lethal Equipment: Drill Charge

For the best Perk Package, we recommend taking Warden for its Double Time and Fast Hands Perks. The extra movement speed and reload time will be a great help with the Kastov-74u, but you’ll need to either buy a Sniper Rifle such as the MCPR-300 from a Buy Station or find one on the ground.

The Flash Grenade is one of the best items in the game as its flash is incredibly strong, and the Drill Charge is a great piece of Lethal Equipment as it can easily root out campers.
