Top Call of Duty pro Seth ‘Scump’ Abner has been dominating Modern Warfare 2’s multiplayer, using a Kastov-74u loadout that’s been banned from competitive play to drop back-to-back nukes.

As Call of Duty pros prepare for the CDL to start in December, they’ve been bringing their skills to Modern Warfare 2 public lobbies and dominating. As the pros get familiar with the game, certain weapons and items are being GA’d (banned) ahead of the season because of their immense power.

One such weapon is the Kastov-74u, an Assault Rifle that acts more like a heavy SMG that excels at close-range. It’s so powerful that it’s already been banned from competitive play, and OpTic Scump showed exactly why, dropping back-to-back nukes in multiplayer.

After trying out the Kastov-74u, Scump was singing the weapon’s praises, calling it “actually OP” and a “f**king glitch.” Using the Kastov-74u on Al Baghra Fortress Domination and then El Asilo Hardpoint, Scump dropped back-to-back MGB Tactical Nukes, dominating both lobbies.

Here’s the loadout Scump used to easily drop back-to-back nukes in Modern Warfare 2’s multiplayer.

OpTic Scump Kastov-74u loadout for Modern Warfare 2

  • Muzzle: Corvus Slash Gen. 2
  • Underbarrel: VX Pineapple
  • Rear Grip: Ivanov ST-70 Grip

Scump was only rocking three attachments on his Kastov-74u, but given how much MW2 attachments hurt your ADS speed, three can be the perfect number.

The VX Pineapple underbarrel is a great choice for close-range, helping with the Kastov-74u’s hip-fire accuracy and recoil steadiness, while the Corvus Slash Gen. 2 further helps to control the recoil.

Finally, he had the Ivanov ST-70 Grip attached to reduce flinch, keeping the Kastov-74u accurate while trading blows.

While the Call of Duty League doesn’t start properly until December, November 16’s Season 1 update will bring the CDL Moshpit playlist to tide players over until 2023’s Ranked Play.
