TAQ-56 AR Warzone 2Activison

The TAQ-56 or Scar is a deadly AR in MW2 and that’s no different in Warzone 2, but you’ll need a top-tier loadout to maximize its strength.

Warzone 2 is here and it’s introduced a new interrogation system, loadout drops, Strongholds, and of course the impressive Al Mazrah map.

Despite this, the main priority for players is choosing the perfect weapon and setup to dominate their opponents on the battlefield.

Well, if you’re looking for firepower, steady recoil control, and a solid amount of mobility, it’s time you picked up the classic TAQ-56, otherwise known as the Scar.

However, to achieve its full potential, the TAQ-56 needs the best attachments equipped and luckily, we’ve got you covered.

  • Muzzle: Echoless-80
  • Barrel: 14.5″ Tundra Pro Barrel
  • Rear Grip: FSS Combat Grip
  • Underbarrel: FSS Sharkfin 90
  • Magazine: 60 Round Mag

As Warzone 2 has only just arrived, it’s impossible to pin down the perfect meta build just yet. However, based on our experience, the TAQ-56 is best suited when a loadout boosts its bullet velocity damage and recoil control, so we’ve done exactly that.

Kick off your build with the Echoless-80 and the 14.5″ Tundra Pro Barrel, these will significantly increase the TAQ-56’s damage range and bullet velocity. As a result, you’ll be able to melt opponents at medium range with ease, and the added sound suppression from the muzzle is a huge bonus.

Following that, equip the FFS Combat Grip and the FSS Sharkfin 90, to increase the overall stability of the weapon. This enhanced recoil control will make landing all of your bullets on foes incredibly simple, especially when utilizing the TAQ-56’s clean iron sight.

Finally, round off the loadout with the 60 Round Mag to ensure you never run out of ammo and can wipe out an entire squad without having to reload.

Best TAQ-56 Warzone 2 class: Perks & equipment

Perk Package: Weapon Specialist

  • Base Perk 1: Overkill
  • Base Perk 2: Strong Arm
  • Bonus Perk: Spotter
  • Ultimate Perk: Survivor
  • Lethal: Grenade

While the correct attachments on a weapon are key, so is your choice of perk package as each bundle offers distinct advantages while navigating Al Mazrah.

We’ve opted for Weapon Specialist as it suits the TAQ-56 perfectly and is great for aggressive players. For starters, Overkill is solid in Warzone 2 as the ability to wield a second primary immediately adds more versatility to your loadout. Whether you run an aggressive SMG or a sniper to pick off opponents from afar, both would elevate your class to the next level.

Next, Strong Arm allows you to be more precise with your throwables and toss them longer distances. On top of that, Spotter ensures you’ll never be caught off guard by enemy equipment, killstreaks, or field upgrades.

For the Ultimate Perk, Weapon Specialist uses Survivor which pings any enemies you get downed by and allows allies to revive you quicker.

Finally round off the setup with Semtex for flushing opponents out of cover and Flash Grenades for clearing encloses spaces.
