The AK-74U is a carbine version of the AK-47, firing the 5.45x39mm round.
The AK-74U has two points higher fire rate than its cousin, the AK-47, but it also has five points less power per shot due to the smaller caliber. It is a common weapon among newer players and is well suited for smaller maps. It is also highly accurate, which causes the first two to three shots of automatic fire to land with relative precision.
The AK-74U is one of three assault rifles available to new players who just joined Combat Arms. The AK-74U is a the GP standard, carbine version of its NX standard counterpart, the AK-74M. It performs well in close, medium, and long ranges assuming the user can handle the recoil and spread. The weapon is a weak three shot kill, leaning more towards a strong 4 shot kill for medium vest users. It will more often three shot kill light vest users.
The rate of fire is slower then average for assault rifles, but due to it's ability to land 3 shot kills,it can deal with anyone who surprises the user in close quarters combat. It is not able to spray as well as other assault rifles,as the weapon's maximum spread is higher then most assault rifles.
The minimum spread is slightly more accurate then most assault rifles,but it is not as accurate as some. It's spread will increase faster then most other assault rifles,and due to the fact that the weapon has a higher then average maximum spread, bursts should be shortened to keep the weapon accurate.
The recoil will cause the weapon to kick left and right diagonally,alternating direction every 8 shots after the initial. This allows shorter bursts to be more predictable,but it is still discouraged to hold down the trigger,as this pattern may make longer range more difficult to handle.
It is often discouraged to fire this weapon full auto as the spread and recoil will go out of control after the fourth or fifth bullet. Full auto should really be used if the enemy is in your face or if covering fire is necessary. The best general strategy to using this rifle is to fire aimed and controlled bursts close range, and tap fire for medium and long range targets.
Extended magazines can help users go for longer streaks without having to reload so some may prefer those in exchange for a slower reload speed. Suppressors are not recommended as they reduce the damage down to a weaker 4 shot kill to medium vest user and mess up the recoil pattern with little benefit to stealth.
This weapon can be forged into the STG-44.

- The AK-74U was on sale for permanent duration in Combat Arms Brazil on 17/10/2012 for 100,000 GP.
- In Combat Arms Russia, this weapon is a default weapon, replacing the M16A3 and its default upgrades. It is also nerfed to make it similar to the M16A3 as a weaker default weapon.
- One notable feature about the AK-74U is that its spread increases when crouching, unlike most other guns which usually have decreased spread while crouching. Accuracy remains the same no matter what position your character is in.
