Best TAQ V Warzone 2 loadout: Class setup, attachments, Perks


Warzone 2’s TAQ-V battle rifle dominates Al Mazrah with its raw firepower and fully automatic output – but only with a top-tier loadout that maximizes the gun’s potential. So, here’s the best TAQ-V setup for Warzone 2 including the best attachments, perks, and equipment.

While Battle Rifles in Modern Warfare 2 still fail to leave a lasting impression on the multiplayer fanbase, the class still seems to shine in Warzone 2.

That’s likely due to the hard-hitting nature of the TAQ-V along with its fully automatic style, making it feel much like a heavier-hitting AR. Those properties are perfect for a game like Warzone 2 where a fast TTK is essential, especially at medium to long range.

The TAQ-V’s lethal 7.62mm rounds easily tear through squads, but its wobbly recoil makes it harder to approach than some other weapons. Fortunately for you, we have the perfect TAQ-V loadout to help carry your squad to victories on Al Mazrah and bolster its kickback.


Best TAQ-V Warzone 2 loadout


  • Muzzle: TY-LR8
  • Barrel: 18″ Precision-6 Barrel
  • Underbarrel: FTAC Ripper 56
  • Magazine: 30-Round Magazine
  • Stock: Tactique Brute Stock

Our loadout focuses on mitigating the weapon’s extreme recoil. Starting off with the TY-LR8 Muzzle, which improves horizontal recoil control at the cost of aiming stability and ADS speed. We recommend taking inspiration from Speros’ loadout by using the FTAC Ripper for added Hip Fire Accuracy and Recoil Stabilization to keep those shots true.

The 18″ Precision-6 Barrel increases the TAQ-V’s damage range and bullet velocity to get the most out of the rifle in medium or long-range engagements. Next up, the Tactique Brute Stock offers improved aiming stability and recoil control.

20 bullets per magazine won’t really cut it in Warzone 2, so we recommend bumping that up to a 30-round magazine. Our loadout does hinder mobility and handling, but increasing the weapon’s accuracy makes it far easier to use.


Best TAQ-V Warzone 2 class: Perks & equipment

Perk Package: Vanguard

  • Base Perk 1: Double Time
  • Base Perk 2: Bomb Squad
  • Bonus Perk: Resupply
  • Ultimate Perk: High Alert
  • Lethal: Grenade
  • Tactical Equipment: Stun Grenade

Al Mazrah is a very big map, so Double Time makes it easier to traverse freely, improving the duration of your tactical sprint. Nothing is worse than getting bombarded with Lethal grenades while holding down an angle in Warzone 2, but Bomb Squad reduces the damage taken from non-Killstreak explosives.

Resupply will come in handy over the duration of a long Warzone 2 match, as you start with an additional Lethal and equipment recharges over 30 seconds. Finally, High Alert may save your life on one or two occasions, as vision pulses alert you when an enemy spots you.

To round off the setup, we recommend using a Semtex for flushing opponents out of cover, and Flash Grenades for clearing enclosed spaces.

Best TAQ-V alternatives in Warzone 2

If the TAQ-V is a tad too bulky for your liking, but you still want a powerful fully automatic weapon, look no further than the TAQ-56.

The dominant AR falls under the same platform but provides a more mobile and nimble version of the hard-hitting SCAR. The TAQ-56 is currently being used by CDL pros and for good reason.

It’s perfect for laser-beaming foes from afar, especially if you kit out the weapon for maximum stability.
