In the assault rifle category of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, there are three different versions of the Kastov. There’s the Kastov 762, Kastov-74u, and the Kastov 545. All three of these weapons are modeled after a different version of the AK family of rifles. The 762 is closest to a classic AK-47 while the 74u resembles that of an AK-74u from previous COD titles. Then, there’s the Kastov 545, which actually looks like the AN-94 that was first seen in Black Ops 2. It’s not the exact same gun — it lines up more with a classic AK-47; but that’s what players recognize it as in multiplayer. Fortunately for fans of the AN-94, the Kastov 545 has a tremendous loadout in MW2, making it quite a useful assault rifle.
The 545 packs a relatively strong punch in MW2 in addition to having terrific recoil control and handling. While there are stronger overall weapons than the 545, few can match its accuracy and control in the AR category. That said, there are some attachments to maximize the Kastov 545’s already-strong accuracy while also boosting some of its weaker stats.
To see the full loadout for the Kastov 545 in Modern Warfare 2, keep reading below.
Best Kastov 545 loadout in MW2
For the Kastov 545’s loadout, I’ve gone with a mixture of attachments that aim to lower recoil and improve mobility. This way, players won’t be at a disadvantage if they decide to push enemies up close or fight them at a distance.
- Muzzle: Silentfire XG6
- Barrel: KAS-7 406mm
- Underbarrel: Schlager Tango
- Stock: Prolite TL3 Stock
- Rear Grip: Ivanov ST-70 Grip
The Silentfire XG6 muzzle and KAS-7 406mm barrel both aim to reduce the Kastov 545’s recoil while also boosting bullet velocity and not harming mobility too much. However, mobility is given an increase thanks to the Prolite TL3 Stock, making close-range gunfights more manageable.
Finally, the Ivanov ST-70 Grip increases flinch resistance so players can stay on target when being shot at from a distance and the Schlager Tango maximizes the gun’s accuracy.
As a final note, you can use the Kastov 545 in the new Modern Warfare 3 and use this same loadout to great effect. However, you will need to change most of the rest of the class, as the perks have been entirely changed in the new multiplayer title. You can still use the same lethal or tactical as well as a similar secondary weapon. Of course, I suggest using some of the new content first so you can experience some of the fresh items in MW3.
