We’ve kicked off the Kastov 545 loadout with the FTAC Castle Comp Muzzle and IG-K30 426mm Barrel as together, they’ll vastly improve the Kastov’s damage, range, and accuracy. But they’ll also slow the weapon down, so the Schlager PEQ Box IV Laser will improve the ADS speed without any drawbacks.

We’re further increasing the Kastov 545’s mobility with the True-Tac Grip at the cost of aiming stability, but we’re making up for that by including the popular FSS Sharkfin 90 Underbarrel.
