AMAX Warzone

The CR-56 AMAX is a great, nostalgic AR to utilize in Warzone, so here’s the best AMAX loadout you should be using in Warzone Season 6 to maximize your damage.

Despite receiving a nerf to its damage in Warzone Season 4 Reloaded, the CR-56 AMAX is still a decent choice in Warzone Season 6. Previously known as the Galil, this AR offers great damage and precision, allowing players to kill targets in a matter of seconds.

As a result, the CR-56 AMAX has become a good pick for those that want to wrack up high-kill games. In order to help you get the most out of the CR-56 AMAX, we’ve put together the best loadout that you can use after the nerfs. 


Best AMAX loadout in Warzone

Boost your ranged damage with these CR-56 AMAX attachments.


  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel: XRK Zodiac S440
  • Optic: VLK 3.0x Optic
  • Underbarrel: Commando Foregrip
  • Ammunition: 45 Round Mags

Unlike Modern Warfare’s standard multiplayer maps, the vast landscapes of Verdansk require players to test their medium- to long-range shooting. While the initial dash for loot results in plenty of close-quarters firefights, you’ll also need a weapon that can effectively deliver lethal rounds at a distance should you wish to keep your enemies at bay. 

First up is the Monolithic Suppressor and XRK Zodiac S440. These two attachments drastically increase your effective damage range, reduce the AMAX’s recoil, and speed up its bullet travel time.

The CR-56 AMAX still dishes out decent damage.

While these attachments may increase your ADS speed, we think this loss is worth it, especially when you need to land those all-important ranged head and body shots. Keep in mind, the AMAX’s Upper Torso Damage multiplier was decreased from 1.2 to 1.1 in Season 4, so it’s key you’re landing headshots to maximize your TTK.

The VLK 3.0x Optic is a must for achieving a higher zoom level, giving you a greater edge when attacking from a distance, at a slight sacrifice of ADS speed. Meanwhile, the Commando Foregrip keeps the gun stable when aiming down sights and firing, enabling you to effortlessly down opponents across all distances. 

Lastly, the 45 Round Mags supplies players with more than enough bullets to shred through even the most well-armored of foes. Having the extra rounds will also keep you from needing to reload every second, so if you wish to avoid any frustrating deaths, then make sure you equip this attachment. 

Best AMAX setup (Perks & equipment)

The AMAX is currently one of the most powerful weapons in the game.


  • Perk 1: EOD
  • Perk 2: Overkill
  • Perk 3: Amped


  • Lethal: Semtex
  • Tactical: Heartbeat Sensor
  • Secondary: OTs 9

This CR-56 AMAX loadout uses EOD to keep you safe from any explosives, while Amped enables you quickly swap to your OTs 9 in close-quarter scenarios. These perks are found on all of our meta loadouts, especially since they increase your overall survivability.

The Overkill perk enables the use of the OTs9 – which still remains the best SMG in Warzone. Not only does this enable you to remain competitive in late-game circles, but it also allows for some incredibly mobile plays. 

Lastly, both the Semtex and Heartbeat Sensor give you the tools needed to hunt enemy players and flush out pesky campers. 

How to unlock the AMAX in Warzone

The challenge for unlocking the AMAX is a little tricky.

In order to unlock the CR-56 AMAX in Modern Warfare and Warzone, you need to get 3 gunbutt kills while using an Assault Rifle in 15 different matches. Due to the melee nature of this challenge, we recommend loading up Modern Warfare’s multiplayer or joining a game of plunder. 

Equip the Double Time perk to increase the duration of your sprint and attach the Fast Melee perk to your chosen Assault Rifle. Not only will this speed up your melee hits, but it will also enable you to quickly chew through any enemy armor plates. 

Stun Grenades can also give you the edge needed to unleash a flurry of hits without getting gunned down in the process. Once you’ve done this challenge, you’ll be the proud owner of Warzone’s CR-56 AMAX.
