We kick off the best Warzone 2 Kastov-74u loadout by improving the weapon’s bullet velocity and damage range with the help of the KSTV-17 Barrel, which combined with the 5.45 High-Velocity Ammunition, further boosts the bullet velocity.

Then, we opted for the FSS OLE-V Laser, which improves both the sprint-to-fire speed and the ADS speed, making the gun suitable for fierce players. The Broadside FCT Stock enhances sprint and ADS speed and provides a more convenient way to disengage from challenging scenarios.

Lastly, we chose the Demo-X2 Rear Grip which helps with recoil control, allowing players to be more precise at mid to long fights.
