What is the best Warzone 2 TAQ-56 loadout? The TAQ-56, also known as the SCAR, is a slow-firing, heavy-hitting assault rifle that has a 3-shot kill potential at close to mid-range. These attachments serve to amplify the solid base weapon, increasing its viability over longer Warzone 2 engagements.

The Warzone 2 TAQ-56 already has an incredibly high damage output for an assault rifle, so this Warzone 2 loadout serves to reign in the recoil, ensuring that any shots you do fire will land where they’re supposed to. Whether you’re taking squads down in Al Mazrah, or enjoying the frenetic pace of Ashika Island, the TAQ-56 is a dependable primary that will serve you well in the free PC game.

The best Warzone 2 TAQ-56 loadout is:

  • Muzzle: Harbinger D20
  • Optic: Slimline Pro
  • Barrel: 17.5″ Tundra Pro Barrel
  • Laser: FSS OLE-V Laser
  • Ammunition: 5.56 High Velocity

The Harbinger D20 muzzle increases the TAQ-56’s bullet velocity and damage range to make your shots travel faster and further than ever before. It also includes recoil smoothness and sound suppression for added stability, and it’s always good to stay off the minimap with silenced shots. The stability when firing, combined with the clear sight picture of the Slimline Pro optic means you’ll find and hit your target a lot more often.

We’ve gone for the 17.5″ Tundra Pro Barrel which also upgrades the weapon’s damage range and bullet velocity. In addition to this, the barrel provides the assault rifle with some hip fire accuracy – it’s not something you want to rely on, but it’ll save your life in a pinch.

The advantages of the FSS OLE-V Laser are three-fold: faster ADS speed, increased aiming stability, and a snappier sprint to fire speed. The laser lightens the feel of the TAQ-56, letting you react to enemies faster, and with the increased aiming stability, dispatch them consistently.

Ensuring that your shots land where intended, the 5.56 High Velocity ammunition increases the bullet velocity, making the TAQ-56 possibly the best Warzone 2 assault rifle for damage range. Hitting difficult shots with consistency is key for long-range engagements in Warzone 2, and not having to factor in bullet travel time, or drop, will make you a more effective marksman.

This is a weapon that, when tinkered with in the Warzone 2 gunsmith, becomes a force to be reckoned with in the battle royale game, and one to consider including in your loadout.
