Tactical – Stun Grenade
The stun grenade is a great addition to AK74u’s fast and ferocious gameplay. This weapon can do a lot of damage and its stun is really good given the movement speed of the AK74u.
C4 is a good choice to go with AK74u. However, if you are not a more strategic player then switching this type to a grenade will work just fine. Just be aware that throwing another grenade means you’ll have to spend most of your time pushing. This slot is slightly wider without affecting the best AK74u loadout.
