Seth’Scump’ Abner, senior CoD expert at Chicago OpTic, shared his competitive AK-74u-type setup, as the powerful submachine gun continues to lead the Black Ops Cold War meta.
Treyarch’s latest “Call of Duty” installment has been several months old, and this metadata is also being consolidated as the second CDL season approaches.
Therefore, we are seeing what kind of weapons we can expect professionals to use, and unlike last year’s fairly predictable advantages of M4A1 and MP5, there seems to be some early changes in weapons. MP5 and AK-74u are SMG̵
As a historically significant SMG star, Scump has been using the AK-74u mainly in the early melee of OpTic Chicago. In a recent live broadcast, the King introduced us to his accessories for the game.
Black Ops Cold War inherits the Gunsmith system of Modern Warfare, so there are many options for accessories. Fortunately, professionals like Scump provide casual players with ideas for the best accessories.
Scump’s AK-74u loader used in the competitive “Black Ops” Cold War
- muzzle: Spetsnaz compensator
- barrel: 9.3 inch extension
- Bottom bucket: Spetsnaz Speedgrip
- stock: GRU elastic wrap
- deal with: KGB skeleton inventory
The Spetsnaz compensator improves vertical recoil control by 12%, but loses 8% in horizontal recoil. However, Spetsnaz Speedgrip offsets the loss of the muzzle’s horizontal recoil control to a certain extent, which also increases the sprint speed, so that Scump can move on the map as quickly as possible. In professional games, before the enemy can easily harden or harden himself, a certain glitch or strength position is reached first.
The 9.3-inch lengthened barrel increases the bullet speed by 40%, thereby enhancing the already impressive bullet speed of the AK-74u. In the next step, the GRU elastic wrapping layer essentially combines the advantages of Dropshot tape and Spetsnaz Field Grip, providing shrink-wing resistance, reducing ADS time and reducing droplet capacity. However, reducing shooting speed and sprint shooting time is a price to pay.
Finally, the KGB skeleton library has greatly improved the shooting time of the sprint (30%) and the speed of aiming and walking (40%). The only price to pay is to reduce the accuracy of hip shooting.
As you can see, Scump’s AK-74u has greatly improved many aspects of guns. One of the disadvantages is the capacity of 30 rounds of ammunition, which is not left in the attachment. Given that the reloading time of the gun is quite fast, the price to be paid is small.
We can expect to see Scump shake this AK-74u category on the scrim temporarily and start the CDL season in 2021. That is, unless Treyarch allows any serious nerd.
