"The AKS-74U offers high damage, but sacrifices some accuracy in return."
― -in-game description.[1]

The AKS-74U, a shortened variant of the AK-74, is a fully-automatic carbine, meant to be both a submachine gun and assault rifle. The weapon is light but uses 5.45mm rifle ammunition, it has good stopping power but the accuracy is hampered by its immense recoil.


The AKS-74U is designed to take both features from an assault rifle and a submachine gun, into one compact rifle. With a compact feature, the AKS-74U can be used for mid-range combat, all the while having the compact design of engaging close-range targets; the high damage output of the AKS-74U, however, reduces, the accuracy of the weapon.

Splinter Cell: ConvictionEdit

The AKS-74U is available for use by the player after playing the cooperative campaign mode. It is very common among enemies in the cooperative campaign and zone 2 to zone 4 in Deniable Ops, and you can find them in Iraq flashback mission in solo campaign. Notable for its powerful damage property but rather low range and moderate accuracy.
