The best Warzone CR-56 AMAX loadout is returning to the top of the meta in Season 5 Reloaded. The final update of the Pacific era contains a number of notable buffs and nerfs that will shake up the existing metagame.

While the Modern Warfare arsenal doesn't receive many changes, the AMAX assault rifle (AR) is the talk of the town once again. Armed with incredible damage output and plenty of versatility, it excels in mid-range engagements and packs a punch in long-distance duels.

What is the best Warzone CR-56 AMAX loadout?

Monolithic Suppressor
XRK Zodiac S440
VLK 3.0x Optic
Commando Foregrip
45 Round Mags

Considering the AMAX has been in Warzone for several seasons, we've had plenty of time to find the very best attachment combination to use on Caldera, Fortune's Keep, and Rebirth Island.

CR-56 AMAX Warzone Weapon Overview

The lightweight 7.62 x 39mm full-auto assault rifle is compact and powerful. Built exclusively for military use, the standard issue rifle is deadly at mid-range combat and easily configured for a variety of assault tactics.

As always, adding some sort of barrel to improve damage output and decrease damage drop-off at longer ranges will be the key to making it effective at distance. Along with a barrel, including a stock on your loadout is integral to maximise mobility and to making the CR-56 lethal in every possible situation.

Best Warzone CR-56 AMAX attachments

  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel: XRK Zodiac S440 Barrel
  • Optic: VLK 3.0x Optic
  • Underbarrel: Commando Foregrip
  • Ammunition: 45 Round Mags

This attachment combination provides plenty of stability when engaging with a target at range and despite the addition of a suppressor, the damage is still extremely high with kills only taking four bullets in most scenarios.

Best Warzone CR-56 AMAX perks and equipment

Once you've set up your CR-56 AMAX using the attachments above, you'll need to consider your attachments and perks. Here are our picks:


  • EOD (Perk 1)

  • Ghost (Perk 2)
  • Battle Hardened (Perk 3)

EOD is essential for this class to work as effectively as possible. With the attachments to allow you to navigate the map with ease, EOD increases resistance to explosives which makes all the difference if a grenade lands nearby.

Ghost keeps you hidden from any airborne UAVs in the air, ideal for making a flank on the unsuspecting opponents while Battle Hardened reduces the strength of enemy flash, stun and gas effects, enabling you to keep focused on the action taking place.


  • Frag Grenade (Lethal) 
  • Smoke Grenade (Tactical)

Perhaps the most versatile piece of equipment in the entire game, the frag grenade can be used for pretty much anything from clearing outbuildings to being tossed all the way across the map in the hopes it connects with an enemy. Like the frag, the smoke grenade can be used as a last-ditch piece of cover or to block off a line of sight to enable you to relocate to another position safely.

Is the CR-56 AMAX still good in Warzone?

Following the most recent dose of weapon balancing, the AMAX is experiencing a resurgence once again. Having dropped into Caldera, I believe the AR is one of the best weapons to use. Minimal damage drop-off combined with ease of use allows anyone to make an impact during a match.
