The AKS-74U (Russian: Автомат Калашникова складной образца 1974 года укороченный, Avtomát Kaláshnikova skladnoy 1974 ukorochenniy; "Kalashnikov Automatic Rifle folded year 1974 model shortened") is a 5.45×39mm carbine featured in Insurgency and Insurgency: Modern Infantry Combat. Designed in the 1970s from the AKS-74 assault rifle (itself a variant of the AK-74 with a side-folding stock), the AKS-74U was intended to be used as a personal defense weapon for vehicles crews and special forces. With the same size and range of a submachine gun but with the ammunition and parts commonality of an assault rifle, the AKS-74U is still somewhat popular.

The AKS-74U is a hybrid between a sub-machine gun and an assault rifle, allowing it to have the fire rate and size of a SMG, while retaining the cartridge of an assault rifle. This allows the weapon to be highly effective in close and medium range firefights. When combined with a foregrip, the recoil is greatly reduced, even less than some SMGs. When compared to the AK-74, the AKS-74U has greater horizontal recoil, but less vertical recoil, a shorter length for the AKS-74U, however, both weapons share the same damage model.
- The AKS-74U is considered to be the Insurgent counterpart to the Security's Mk18.
- When optics are mounted on the AKS-74U, the scope view is much smaller than other weapons, due to the forward mounting position of optics on the AKS-74U.
- The Dry Canal update gave the AKS-74U animation updates, the player now does an underhand bolt pull when dry reloading.
