TAQ-56 AR Warzone 2Activison

The TAQ-56, known as the Scar to veterans of Call of Duty, is a solid AR that somewhat fell out of favor with the community, but a good meta TAQ-56 Warzone 2 loadout can make it shine, so here’s our suggestion.

Warzone 2’s Season 3 update has shaken up the meta and added a huge amount of new content.

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

Well, if you’re looking for raw firepower, manageable recoil control, and a solid amount of mobility, it’s time you picked up the classic TAQ-56, otherwise known as the Scar. With a 4.3% pick rate, the AR is one of the most popular guns in Warzone 2, and it’s easy to see why.

However, to push this AR to its limits, the TAQ-56 needs the best attachments equipped and luckily, we’ve got you covered.

  • Muzzle: Harbinger D20
  • Barrel: 17.5″ Tundra Pro Barrel

Kick off your build with the Harbinger D20 and the 17.5″ 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.
