Medal of Honor (2010)Edit
The AKS-74u has decent power and medium magazine capacity, but high recoil. It is fairly common amongst enemies, and is only second to the AK-47 in terms of common-ness.
This weapon is the first weapon given to the Opfor Special Ops class. It has a 30-round magazine and a high rate of fire. It has identical statistics as its opposite, the M4A1. The weapon is often used with a Red Dot Sight, by those who have unlocked the sight, as the sight is clearer than the iron sights and thus easier to use at longer ranges.
Medal of Honor: WarfighterEdit
The AKS-74U can be seen in the Battlelog section for Medal of Honor: Warfighter. It can also be seen in early gameplay trailers under the name Suchka.
Many AKS-74u can be collected from enemies. In the campaign, AKS has a much less strong recoil than in multiplayer, good accuracy and is a good weapon at medium ranges.
In "Through the Eyes of Evil", Argyrus uses an AKS-74u equipped with a Specter DR sight (which is strange for two reasons: first, AKS cannot equip the Specter DR in multiplayer; second, Specter's iron sights, on the top of the scope, can be used, while normally the alternative mode of the Specter DR is simply an unzoomed view from the standard scope).
In "Finding Faraz" Preacher uses an AKS-74u modified with Extended Magazines (40 rounds) and the double low power optic Trijicon TA11H-308 with an RMR sight attached.
It's interesting to notice that all the three attachments of the default AKS-74Us in these missions are not available in multiplayer. Possibly the highest number of unused attachments for a single weapon.
It is available for the Demolitions class.
Just like the AK5C, the AKS-74u Suchka comes in a single version at the start of the unlockables progression for the Demolitions class. You won't find different pre-made versions of this weapon.
The AKS appears to have a good firepower (unlike most of the Demolitions' weapons), but also has a tremendous recoil, that forces the player to fire very short bursts (2-3 shorts) in order not to lose control of the gun. Inaccurate and with poor range, the AKS packs a very interesting punch, which, unfortunately, is quite hard to use properly. It doesn't have a very high rate of fire, but it's certainly higher than the AK-103's.
- In the Single Player the AKS-74u was based on the AKMSU which fires 7.62mm x 39mm where the AKS-74u in Multiplayer is the correct variant that fires 5.45x39mm
- The AKS74U was named Suchka in pre-release gameplay of Medal of Honor: Warfighter.
- The AKS-74U in Warfighter is actually the AKMSU, evidenced by the magazine being identical to the AK-103's.
- Battlelog states that the UDT use this weapon, when they actually use the AA12 in game.
