The Best CR-56 AMAX Warzone Loadout and Attachments

The CR-56 Amax is arguably the very best assault rifle to be using in Warzone right now. Despite regular nerfs being implemented to the rifle, it's still proving a popular choice when it comes to building a loadout featuring a weapon that can do almost anything. Armed with a huge damage output alongside a moderate fire rate, the AMAX is nothing short of phenomenal when used in mid-range and long-distance duels. Although the rifle received a small nerf as part of the Season 4 Reloadedupdate, it is still holding its place within the ever-changing meta.

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 make it effective at distance. Along with a barrel, including a stock on your loadout is integral to maximise mobility and to make the CR-56 lethal in every possible situation.

CR-56 AMAX Warzone Best 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, damage is still extremely high with kills only taking four bullets in most scenarios.

Best CR-56 AMAX Warzone Loadout

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:

Perks

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

Scavenger is essential for this class to work as effectively as possible. With the attachments to allow you to navigate the map with ease, Scavenger will mean you never run out of ammunition on the battlefield.

Ghost keeps you hidden from any opposition 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.

Grenades

  • 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.

That's how to set up the CR-56 AMAX for Warzone. For even more Warzone intel, check out how Raven Software is going to nerf Dead Silence as well as how to unlock the OTs 9submachine gun.
