The Kuda is a fully automatic weapon and one of the first SMGs available to players in Black Ops 3. It doesn’t require a specific weapon to use and can be equipped to your loadout immediately. It is an all-around decent submachine gun that deals a moderate amount of damage, has decent range, a medium-paced firing rate, and okay accuracy.
The Kuda doesn’t have a ton of recoil which makes it ideal for players that appreciate stability in their weapons. The average firing rate on the gun also helps players tag opponents with more bullets. Many players have compared the look and feel of this weapon to the classic MP5 from titles such as Modern Warfare.
Below are the statistics of this gun.
Damage Output: ~ 20-30 HP per bullet
Magazine Size: 30 rounds (42 with Extended Mags equipped)
Fire Rate: Medium
Here are the attachments that can be equipped to the Kuda SMG:
- Reflex Sight
- Recon Sight
- Varix 3
- Extended Mags
- Laser Sight
- Fast Mags
- Long Barrel
- Rapid Fire
Recommended Weapon Setup
The Kuda is a pretty decent gun, but it does have a few flaws. The iron sights on this SMG are actually pretty good – it’s not obstructive and it’s relatively easy to tell where your fire is being focused. For that reason, we don’t suggest using any optics for an attachment slot.
Because the gun does deal a somewhat low amount of damage it can burn through a lot of ammo quite quickly when engaging more than one opponent at a time. This is why the Extended Mags attachment is helpful. It effectively brings the gun’s bullet count up to 42 rounds per magazine as compared to the default 30. Those extra 12 bullets make a world of difference.
The Kuda is a decent choice for players that like to rush objectives or high foot-traffic areas. If you want to improve your speed a bit you may want to throw on the Quickdraw attachment which slightly decreases your ADS time so you can snap up your gun a bit faster.
Outside of those choices you can also opt for a laser sight which gives you the ability to have more focused fire when firing from the hip. Or, if you like to sneak up on your enemies (flanking), another good option is a suppressor. Yes, it reduces your effective range a bit, but it also allows you to stay off radar and pick off enemies without alerting as many nearby opponents. Overall, it’s one of the most balanced weapons in Black Ops 3.
