November 21, 2022: Warzone 2 is now available and the TAQ-56 is proving popular. Scroll down for the best loadout and best attachments to use.

The best Warzone 2 TAQ-56 loadout is a topic players need to know about before dropping into Call of Duty's latest battle royale. Alongside a brand-new map, Infinity Ward has bought a brand-new arsenal of weapons to master. One of them is the TAQ-56 assault rifle (AR).


Sharing numerous similarities to the SCAR-H from 2009's Modern Warfare 2, the AR comes with a controllable rate of fire and one of the highest damage outputs in the entire category. However, the rifle possesses a slow sprint-to-fire time which leaves you vulnerable when attempting to react quickly.
