Gameplay of the AKS-74U


Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six: Vegas 2

  • The AKS-74U in-game is clearly a shortened model of the AK-47, but altered slightly to differ the two. These changes are a shorter barrel, a flash hider, folding stock, and relocated sights. This firearm actually has the unique stamped receiver of the Type I AK-47 model in-game too.
  • In the "New Weapons" trailer for the game, it claimed that the AKS-74U chambered 7.62x39mm. This is incorrect because the AKS-74U actually chambers the 5.45x39mm round instead. This may have been fixed, because the AKS-74U does not share the same ammo as the AK-47 in-game.
