Warzone 2 and MW2 TAQ-V is a battle rifle, based on the real-world SCAR-H. Warzone 2 and Modern Warfare 2 gives players an unprecedented amount of customisation over their weapons. TAQ-V is a strong choice in the battle rifle category, as a fully automatic weapon, it bridges the gap to assault rifles. Here are our picks for putting together the best Warzone 2 and MW2 TAQ-V loadout.

The TAQ-V assault rifle is a long-range animal, providing the brutal DPS and minimal recoil Warzone 2 players are looking for. 

We're focusing on our Warzone 2 TAQ-V Loadout to be a good all-rounder no matter what situation players find themselves in. Here's what we've come up with:

  • Schlager Peq Box IV
  • Polarfire-S
  • FFS Sharkfin 90
  • 30 Round Mag
  • Demo Cleanshot Grip

Best Warzone 2 TAQ-V Loadout: Perks

Because players will want to keep some distance between their enemies for this build, we've got some perks to help out with that. With the ultimate perk Ghost and the dead silence field upgrade, there shouldn't be a problem:

  • Lethal - Semtex
  • Tactical - Stun Grenade
  • Field Upgrade - Dead Silence
  • Perk 1 - Double Time
  • Perk 2 - Tracker
  • Bonus Perk - Fast Hands
  • Ultimate Perk - Ghost

Here is a rundown of the attachments we recommend for the TAQ-V. Many of them can be changed around based on personal preference, but this is the setup we found most effective.

  • Cronen Mini Red Dot Sight
  • 18" Precision-6 Barrel
  • Demo Cleanshot Grip
  • FSS Sharkfin 90 Foregrip
  • 30-Round Magazine

The red dot sight gives the weapon precision at many ranges, and the 18" Precision-6 barrel keeps the damage effective at longer ranges. The two grips keep the weapon steady, making it extremely accurate while doing plenty of damage. The 30-round magazine is plenty for the weapon, and much quicker than the 50-round drum. These attachments will make the weapon deadly at most ranges, while also being extremely accurate.

For your perks, there are two ways you can go. Regardless, you want Scavenger as one of your base perks, ammo can run out fast in MW2 so you will want this for those times when you get a bunch of kills and need to resupply. Your other base perk depends on your preference. If you would like to bring a second primary weapon with you, you could use Overkill. The TAQ-V is quite a general-use weapon, though, so that might not be necessary. Instead, you could go for Tracker, which allows you to see the footprints of enemies and see their death markers.

The bonus perk is something that really comes down to personal preference, but for our money, we would recommend Spotter or Cold-Blooded. If you find you are burning through bullets, you could run with the 50-round drum magazine and use Fast Hands to compensate for the slower handling.

For your ultimate perk, we recommend Quick Fix. This will keep you healthy as you mow down your opponents, a great way to keep the streak going.

That is it for the Warzone 2 and MW2 TAQ-V best loadout. For more on the game, check out our rundown of the best MW2 meta weapons in the game.
