In 2010’s Call of Duty: Black Ops, the AK-74u was the best SMG in the game by a long shot.

It’s back 10 years later in Black Ops Cold War, and it’s almost just as good. And so the pro players who make the big bucks by slaying out in CoD are using it often.

Since the early going of scrimmages, the AK-74u has been popular among pros. It offers strong range and firepower for an SMG and it’s looking like it’ll be a dominant pick in objective game modes in the CDL season.

Metas change and players switch up their loadouts often, so make sure to check back to see what’s new and what’s different every now and then.

Here are some of the loadouts that Call of Duty League pros are using for the AK-74u and some options you can use in League Play.
