Gunsmith. Part 2 – Escape From Tarkov Guide

This is the second quest of the Gunsmith series for Escape From Tarkov, originally named “Gunsmith. Part 2”. Here we need to modify the Kalashnikov AKS-74U 5.45×39 caliber as per Mechanic’s instructions. Without further ado, let’s take a look at the official quest description and jump onto the modification.

Gunsmith. Part 2 Description

You have not failed with the shotgun, so you may know your way around tools. That didn’t save me much time though. All exchanges are on fire, hope it won’t start the panic. Nevertheless, the plan remains the same, I think it’s not for long. Okay, I need to work. And you, try to get hold of AKSU. With B-11 handguard, 60 round extended mag, and compact, 6 cells max. Ergonomics over 58, recoil sum less than 550, sighting range 100 or more. And of course, as light as possible, 3.5kg or less. Yes, Indexes here have nothing to do with that. I hope you’ve remembered everything. See you soon.

I am ANGE1K. I started playing video games a long time ago. In a blink of an eye, I became a hardcore gamer. A couple of years later, I traversed to the professional Counter-Strike 1.6 scene. After the competitive ERA, I managed to find the gaming industry amusing and started working on FGR. 8 years after founding FGR, my mission remains the same. That is to discover secrets within the gaming industry, create guides for all the games I play, and provide you with some important news. Oh, yeah, I post tons of patch notes too. At the time, I play everything that seems reasonable to play, make content about it and help gamers to the best of my abilities. P.S. Last time I counted how many hours I've spent in video games turned out to be 13+ years. And that was a long time ago too. Almost 24/7 in front of PC.
