TAQ-M in Modern Warfare 2

Modern Warfare 2’s TAQ-M is an extremely effective Marksman Rifle that can dish out plenty of pain, and here’s how you can put together the best TAQ-M loadout in Modern Warfare 2 Season 1.

Modern Warfare 2 features a variety of powerful weapons for players to choose from, and Marksman Rifles are ideal for taking on enemies in long-range engagements across the map.

The TAQ-M Marksman Rifle is a viable option that can be used to pick off opponents from a distance, and you can make it even deadlier with the right collection of attachments, Perks, as well as equipment.

Here’s the best TAQ-M loadout for Modern Warfare 2 Season 1 Reloaded.

Best Modern Warfare 2 TAQ-M loadout attachments

  • Muzzle: ZLR Talon 5
  • Underbarrel: VX Pineapple
  • Magazine: 20 Round Mag
  • Optic: Luca Bandera Scope
  • Stock: TV Ballast Stock

We’ll start off the best Modern Warfare 2 TAQ-M loadout by buffing the damage range and recoil control with the ZLR Talon 5 muzzle. The VX Pineapple underbarrel will further reduce the recoil and allow greater accuracy.

The TV Ballast Stock will boost mobility by improving the ADS speed, crouch movement speed, sprint speed, and aim walking speed. You can use the magnification of the Luca Bandera Scope to take out distant enemies, and this loadout caps off with the 20 Round Mag as our choice of ammo.

  • Base Perk 2: Battle Hardened
