COD MW2: BEST Kastov 762 Loadout [Expert’s Opinion]

The Kastov 762 is a hard-hitting assault rifle that shreds through enemies! Find the best loadout to go with it here!

The Kastov 762 is a great assault rifle (AR) in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. But to take it from great to outright exceptional, you need to pair it with the right attachments, perks, and equipment. Therefore, this guide will take you through the best loadout build and class setup for the Kastov 762 AR!

The Kastov 762 is a hard-hitting rifle based on the AK platform. Its large caliber rounds give it the highest damage in the class, making it capable of dropping players within three to four shots at any range. The trade-off here, though, is that it has the slowest fire rate and high recoil in the class along with the STB 556. This may make it unappealing to some players. For those, we recommend the Lachmann-556, the AR with a great rate of fire.

Key Takeaways
  • The Kastov 762 is unlocked at level 23, and can be equipped with custom attachments in the Gunsmith.
  • Leveling up the Kastov 762 and specific other weapons will unlock more attachments and modification slots.
  • The best Kastov 762 loadout attachments include the Cronen Mini Pro optic, the Kastovia DX90 muzzle, the FTAC Ripper 56 under barrel, the KSTV-RPK Factory stock, and the FSS OLE-V Laser.
  • The best Kastov 762 loadout perks and equipment include Scavenger, Battle Hardened, Hardline, and Ghost as the Perks, X13 Auto as the Secondary, Stun as the Tactical, Frag as the Lethal, and Dead Silence and Battle Rage as the Field Upgrades.

First and foremost, let’s check out a quick summary of all the picks you need to make for the best Kastov 762 loadout:

- Optic: Cronen Mini Pro
- Muzzle: Kastovia DX90
- Underbarrel: FTAC Ripper 56
- Stock: KSTV-RPK Factory
- Laser: FSS OLE-V Laser

Best Kastov 762 Loadout Attachments

When it comes to equipping modifications with the Kastov 762, seen above, players have up to five attachment options. These include modification slots for muzzles, laser sights, optics, rear grips, and more. For our setup, we have chosen these as the best attachment combination:

  • Optic: Cronen Mini Pro
  • Muzzle: Kastovia DX90
  • Underbarrel: FTAC Ripper 56
  • Stock: KSTV-RPK Factory
  • Laser: FSS OLE-V Laser

The main benefit of this class loadout build is controlling the excessive kick of the Kastov 762. For this, the attachments provide improvements to the recoil control, smoothness, and stabilization. This makes the weapon perform superbly at medium to long ranges where it can drop enemies in an instant. Improvements to the aiming stability and damage range also help here. It is still, however, no match for some of the best snipers in the game such as the Signal 50 and the SP-R 208 when it comes to engaging at range.

For taking on foes at closer distances, the setup gives players increased hip fire accuracy and quicker sprint to fire speed. This negates some of the aim down sight (ADS) speed nerfs since players can simply rely on getting their shots off quickly and firing from the hip. Mobility will also take a hit, but for players wanting a more mobile option, the M4 brings a lot to the table.

Below is a summary of the pros and cons that this loadout brings.

Optic: Cronen Mini Pro

We start with the Cronen Mini Pro as the optics, which can be seen above. This is one of the best optics players can go for in the game. It provides a clear view of the target thanks to sufficient sight space and a minimal reticle. Moreover, the housing is also very compact, providing an unobstructed view of your enemies.

Therefore, this greatly helps the weapon excel at longer ranges and lets players compensate for recoil easily, which we believe is a worthy exchange for some reduction in ADS speed.

Muzzle: Kastovia DX90

For our choice of the muzzle, we went with the Kastovia DX90, an excellent suppressor. As shown above, the sound suppression it provides means that players will be able to hide their flanks and make it difficult for enemies to pinpoint their location.

Moreover, the muzzle also helps in increasing ranged potency. It does so by increasing bullet velocity and recoil control and making it easier to land shots on distant targets. This further plays into the strengths of the Kastov, making it a beast in those long-distance engagements.

Underbarrel: FTAC Ripper 56

The FTAC Ripper 56 is a great choice for an underbarrel since it aids greatly in accuracy, which can be seen in the image. It does so by helping stabilize the weapon’s recoil, which again aids in taming the erratic kick of the Kastov 762.

What’s more, the underbarrel improves aiming stability, which can be critical when lining up distant shots. Lastly, it has the advantage of better hip fire accuracy. This will prove useful in intense close-quarter situations where aiming in is not an option and players can simply spray their opponents down.

Stock: KSTV-RPK Factory

For the weapon stock, the KSTV-RPK Factory is a competent attachment that further bolsters the Kastov’s ranged capabilities. An image of the attachment can be seen above.

Aside from recoil control, which again is essential in a weapon like the Kastov 762, the stock also provides an increase in aiming stability. Therefore, players will have an easier time holding angles and tracking opponents.

Laser: FSS OLE-V Laser

Lastly, we went with the FSS OLE-V Laser, pictured above. It aims mainly to bring back some mobility in our Kastov 762 AR class setup.

For one, it helps counter some of the ADS speed nerfs brought about by other attachments in this build. This means that overall, the ADS speed is still manageable, although hip firing will still be your go-to option in close quarters. Furthermore, it increases the sprint to fire speed, which again is a useful advantage when things get up close and personal.

Finally, the laser sight further increases aiming stability, reducing weapon sway and helping keep your sights steady for those snipes.

Kastov 762 Loadout Perks

Perks can make all the difference in a Call of Duty game. As such, it is important to make sure that players select the best perks that complement their weapons and playstyle. Here are the perks setup we recommend for our Kastov 762 loadout and class build:

  • Base Perk 1: Scavenger
  • Base Perk 2: Battle Hardened
  • Bonus Perk: Hardline
  • Ultimate Perk: Ghost

The image below shows the perk setup.

Our first Base Perk, Scavenger, is a must-have with this build. It lets players pick up ammo and throwing knives from dead players. Since the limited ammo reserves of the Kastov 762 mean that players will often find themselves in need of more bullets, this perk can be a godsend when going on extended sprees.

The next Base Perk is Battle Hardened. It makes players more resistant to Flash, Stun, EMP, Gas Grenades, and Shock Sticks, while also providing immunity to Snapshot Grenades. Since this build encourages players to play from a distance and hold angles, opponents will often try to flush them out with these grenades. As such, it helps to have this perk in your arsenal.

For the Bonus Perk, we recommend Hardline, which reduces the cost of each equipped Killstreak by 1, or of each equipped Scorestreak by 125. Hence, attaining those Killstreaks/Scorestreaks is made just a little easier, which can give players a massive leg-up in matches and help them get to the top of the scoreboard.

Finally, our Ultimate Perk of choice is Ghost. This makes players invisible to UAVs, Portable Radars, and Heartbeat Sensors. It makes players less likely to get detected as they hold down alleyways and flank along the outskirts, giving them the element of surprise.   

Kastov 762 Class Equipment

Like perks, the equipment players sport with their loadout also has a considerable impact on their success. Therefore, for the best results with the Kastov 762 AR setup, here is the equipment you should play with.

  • Secondary: X13 Auto
  • Tactical: Stun
  • Lethal: Frag
  • Field Upgrade: Dead Silence
  • Field Upgrade 2: Battle Rage

Secondary: X13 Auto

The X13, shown above, is an automatic pistol that fires 20 rounds per second. It is based on the Glock-18 pistol in real life. The sidearm can hold 17 rounds per magazine with 34 in reserve. Players can unlock it by leveling up the X12 pistol to level 10.

The automatic firing capabilities of the pistol make it excel in close quarters. Due to this, the X13 serves as a great sidearm with the Kastov 762. This is because players can use the AR as their primary and take on longer-ranged gunfights, but when enemies get too close for comfort, they can quickly switch to the X13 and mow them down.

Tactical: Stun

The Stun grenade, as seen in the image, is an excellent Tactical for players to use. Upon detonation, the grenade concusses enemies in the vicinity, which greatly slows down their movement and aiming. This leaves them vulnerable for a few seconds and makes it much easier to take them out.

Therefore, the Stun makes it easier to push into rooms, alleyways, and crowded spots on the map. This makes it a very reliable Tactical that can open up opportunities for many interesting plays.

Lethal: Frag

For the Lethal, we suggest going with the trusty ol’ Frag grenade, which can be seen in the picture. This is an explosive fragmentation grenade that detonates on a timed fuse. The grenade can be cooked before throwing as well.

The option to cook the grenade also makes it more versatile than something like the Semtex. If timed and thrown correctly, the enemy has very few options to counter your Frag. Therefore, the Frag grenade provides a good option for crowd control and flushing enemies from their hiding spots. 

Field Upgrade: Dead Silence

Dead Silence is the first Field Upgrade we recommend, shown in our image above. It lets players move without any footstep sounds for a set time, which renews after every kill.

This provides an excellent opportunity for players to go completely silent and pull off some amazing plays without the enemy being any the wiser.

Field Upgrade 2: Battle Rage

Players can unlock a second Field Upgrade slot upon reaching level 45.

Here, we have decided to go with the Battle Rage perk, shown in the picture. Upon activation, the player injects themselves with a stimulant that accelerates health regeneration, resists tactical equipment, and ends the cooldown on Tactical Sprints.

This allows the players to take on multiple enemies in quick succession while being less vulnerable to counter-attacks. Moreover, it enables quick movement and can help players remove themselves from intense situations.

How To Unlock Kastov 762 Custom Loadouts

When it comes to unlocking the weapon Kastov 762, players need to progress to level 23. At this point, they can customize their rifle by heading to the Gunsmith. Here, the Kastov can be equipped with different attachments to fine-tune its play style.

Furthermore, new attachments can be unlocked and modification slots can be opened up by leveling up weapons including the Kastov 762 as well as specific other weapons. For example, the Lachmann-762 needs to be leveled up to level 6 to unlock the FTAC Ripper 56 underbarrel on our list.


With that, we conclude our guide on the best loadout build and class setup for the Kastov 762 AR. The setup will help overcome a lot of the drawbacks of the Kastov, such as the recoil, and make it a stellar weapon all around. Let us know how the rifle performs for you!

The incredibly high damage also makes the weapon unwieldy in terms of recoil and mobility. As such, if you need something with less of a kick, the Taq 56 and M16 are some of the best guns in the game because of their recoil control and accuracy.

Conversely, if you feel like the lack of mobility and sluggish fire rate of the Kastov 762 is not for you, we suggest taking a look at the SMGs in Modern Warfare 2. They possess a much higher fire rate and can let players get around a lot quicker.

In this regard, players should consider some of the best SMGs in the game, such as the FSS Hurricane, the Vel 46, and the MX9. Alternatively, for engaging at extremely close distances, you cannot go wrong by trying out some of the best shotgun loadouts in Modern Warfare 2, such as that for the Expedite 12!
