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

Warzone 2 is here and it has introduced a new interrogation system, gear 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, constant recoil control, and a solid amount of mobility, it’s about time you pick up the classic TAQ-56, otherwise known as the Scar.

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

  • End of a loop: Echoless-80
  • Walk: 14.5″ Tundra Pro barrel
  • Back grip: FSS combat grip
  • underflow: FSS Shark Fin 90
  • magazine: 60 Round Mag

Since 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 increases bullet speed damage and recoil control, so we’ve done just that.

Start building with the Echoless-80 and the 14.5″ Tundra Pro barrel, these will greatly increase the damage range and bullet speed of the TAQ-56. As a result, you can melt opponents at medium range with ease, and the added noise suppression of the muzzle is a huge bonus.

Then rest the FFS combat grip and the FSS Shark Fin 90, to increase the overall stability of the weapon. This improved recoil control makes it incredibly easy to land all your rounds on enemies, especially when using the TAQ-56’s clean iron sight.

Finally, round out the equipment with the 60 Round Mag to ensure you never run out of ammo and can destroy an entire team without having to reload.

Best TAQ-56 Warzone 2 Class: Benefits and Equipment

Benefit Package: Weapons Specialist

  • Basic advantage 1: Overkill
  • Basic advantage 2: Strong arm
  • Bonus Benefit: Spotter
  • Ultimate Benefit: Survivor
  • Deadly: Garnet
  • Tactical equipment: Shock grenade

While having the right attachments on a weapon is essential, so is your choice of perk pack, as each bundle offers clear benefits while navigating Al Mazrah.

We have chosen for Weapons specialist because it perfectly matches the TAQ-56 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 control an aggressive SMG or a sniper to take down opponents from afar, both would take your class to the next level.

Next one, Strong arm allows you to be more accurate with your throwing items and throw them over longer distances. On top of that, Spotter ensures that you are never overrun by enemy equipment, killstreaks or field upgrades.

For the ultimate advantage, use Weapon Specialist Survivor which pings all enemies you are knocked down by and allows allies to revive you faster.

Finally, complete the setup with Semtex for flushing opponents out of cover and Flash grenades for cleaning up enclosed spaces.
