Call of Duty: Warzone 2 Season 1 Reloaded is well underway and the TAQ-V is one of the game’s best Battle Rifle options to use. So let’s run through our best loadout for the TAQ-V in Warzone 2.

While some of the mechanics in Warzone 2 have changed such as its looting and the Gulag’s 2v2 fights, the race to find the best meta weapons remains the same, and the TAQ-V is a great shout.

The highly charged Battle Rifle is a cousin of the popular TAQ-56 but its heavier impact can make it more effective if you can control its recoil and kick.

To do this, we’ve assembled a solid TAQ-V loadout for you to use in Warzone 2 Season 1 Reloaded, and it includes all the attachments we feel make it best, along with other touches to round the loadout out too.

Best Warzone 2 TAQ-V loadout attachments

  • Barrel: 18″ Precision-6 Barrel
  • Muzzle: Kastovia DX90
  • Optic: XRX On-Point Optic
  • Underbarrel: Lockgrip Precision-40
  • Magazine: 50 Round Drum

As with most weapons, we want to reduce the gun’s recoil and make it easier to handle, and the 18″ Precision-6 Barrel gives us tremendous accuracy over longer distances, whereas the Kastovia DX90 provides both recoil smoothness and control.

Moving on, the Lockgrip Precision-40 underbarrel with help with the TAQ-V’s rough recoil by adding some recoil steadiness.

To finish things off, we’ve gone for the 50 Round Drum to give the gun some extra juice in the tank and the XRX On-Point Optic for accuracy.

Best Warzone 2 TAQ-V loadout Perks & Equipment

  • Perk Package: Specter (Double Time, Tracker, Spotter, Ghost)
  • Tactical Equipment: Flash Grenade
  • Lethal Equipment: Proximity Mine

For the best Perk Package and Equipment to have alongside the TAQ-V, we recommend running Specter as you need Double Time to escape enemy danger and the gas, plus Ghost is always useful for hiding from enemy UAVs.

The Flash Grenade is obnoxiously powerful in Warzone 2 and will blind players for a healthy amount of time, on the other hand, the Proximity Mine is excellent for fortifying a position.

How to unlock TAQ-V in Warzone 2

To get your hands on the TAQ-V in CoD Warzone 2, you’ll first have to unlock the TAQ-56 by reaching Level 19, then equip it and use it until it reaches Level 11 to gain access to the TAQ-V.

The platform/receiver system has been a big change for Warzone 2 and Modern Warfare 2, and if you want to speed up your leveling, we have some useful tips to help you along the way.
