Warzone contains a huge number of guns and weapons in its ever-expanding arsenal, with new updates often adding new firearms in a bid to spice up the existing metagame. Most recently, the Season 2 Reloaded update added the Armaguerra 43 into the submachine gun (SMG) category.

With a wealth of weapons to call upon from current and previous annual releases, players often wonder whether some iconic weaponry from older titles will ever make their way into the battle royale. Unfortunately, chances of this happening are relatively low, but some members of the community are getting creative.

In a bid to replicate the likes of Modern Warfare 2's legendary ACR assault rifle and the TAR-21, players are modifying existing weapons to match their appearance. In this case, it's the turn of the TAR-21. Find out how to create a TAR-21 in Warzone in this handy guide!

Is The TAR-21 In Warzone?

The TAR-21 isn't a weapon listed in the Warzone arsenal but with some creative attachment selection, you can create a gun that heavily resembles one of the most underrated assault rifles from 2009's Modern Warfare 2.


The weapon you need to modify to replicate the TAR-21 is the RAM-7 assault rifle from 2019's Modern Warfare. Its compact size and somewhat similar appearance to the TAR-21 makes it the perfect base to use.

Warzone TAR-21 Loadout

There are a number of attachments to select within the Warzone gunsmith. Thankfully, Warzone superstar and FaZe Clan member 'Swagg' has found a conbination that transforms the RAM-7 into the classic Modern Warfare 2 AR.

During the video, Swagg claims the TAR-21 replica is unstoppable. "I didn't lose a gunfight on Rebirth to any gun - or Caldera. Any fight with this gun, long range, mid-range, I was destroying." With plenty of high praise, you'll be wondering which attachments Swagg has used in order to match the TAR-21.

Warzone TAR-21 Attachments

To build the TAR-21, a specific set of attachments is required. Check out the full list needed to replicate the weapon below:

  • Barrel: XRK Ranger
  • Optic: Corp Combat Holo Sight
  • Underbarrel: Merc Foregrip
  • Ammunition: 50 Round Mags
  • Rear Grip: Stippled Grip

This particular combination of attachments improves the damage range and recoil of the RAM-7, bearing some resemblance to how the TAR-21 performed back in Modern Warfare 2 multiplayer. The holographic sight is a surefire way to bring the hit of nostalgia while the 50-round magazine is perfect for dealing with multiple enemies in quick succession.

Is The TAR-21 Good in Warzone?

Based on Swagg's experience and my own, this TAR-21 replica is perfect for anyone wanting to take a trip down memory lane. The RAM-7 is transformed into the classic AR and packs a hefty punch against other guns considered to be a part of the meta.

If you're a fan of Modern Warfare 2 and want something a little diferent to use on Caldera and Rebirth Island, this loadout is the one for you.
