Trivia

  • The proper name for the weapon is actually AKS-74U, with the S meaning Skladnoy to denote folding stock model.
  • The model shows the weapon's fire selector is on safety position, which means the gun wouldn't be able to fire in real-life. This mistake also can be found in AKM, AKM Gold, AK-47 HQ and AKM Red.
  • The reloading action is similar to SG552.
  • Before the Free Update patch, this weapon used to have level restriction. The players must achieve level 15 (11 for Taiwan/Hong Kong) or higher to purchase it.
