The AK-74 is an assault rifle featured in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare: Mobilized and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3: Defiance. It also has a brief cameo appearance in Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered

Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare & Modern Warfare RemasteredEdit

In the intro cutscene of The Coup, the AK-74 is seen strapped to the back of the two OpFor soldiers dragging President Al-Fulani. It is not available during gameplay, where it is replaced by the AK-47.

The AK-74 appears as the modernized version of the AK-47 found in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, with a black finish and a metal handguard. The AK-74 is found throughout the entire campaign and is seen being used frequently by enemy infantry (probably the most used, in fact). The in-game model features a sawed-off butt-stock, a grip attachment and a high rate of fire. It also uses a 30-round magazine and is one of the pre-unlocked weapons of the Insurgency factions in Multiplayer. Thanks to the high rate of fire, high power, fast reload and clear iron-sights it is one of the most used and effective weapons in the game.


Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3: DefianceEdit

The AK-74 returns in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3: Defiance. It's the same as the one the one in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare: Mobilized except now it has recoil.


The Russian forces return along with this weapon and use them against the player. Encountered somewhat often during the campaign, as Russians often used the more mass produced AK-47. It is encountered more frequently during the last few missions in Defiance along with the SKS. The AK-74 is only obtainable from dead enemies and never seen used by any friendly forces.


The AK-74 appears in multiplayer as an unlockable assault rifle. It can be unlocked with 700 kills with any assault rifle.



  • Though the iron sights are fairly accurate, they are misaligned in both games. Shots go slightly to the right of the center of the iron sight.
  • The HUD icon in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3: Defiance lacks the front and rear sights.
