Battle Rifles have great damage, and the TAQ-V is a great option that shares similarities with the popular TAQ-56 Assault Rifle. However, you can make the rifle even deadlier with the best attachments, Perks, and Equipment.

Best Modern Warfare 2 TAQ-V loadout attachments

  • Muzzle: SAKIN Tread-40
  • Laser: FSS OLE-V Laser
  • Underbarrel: Commando Foregrip
  • Rear Grip: Demo Cleanshot Grip
  • Magazine: 30 Round Mag

Our Modern Warfare 2 TAQ-V loadout uses the FSS OLE-V Laser laser and Demo Cleanshot Grip Rear Grip to drastically increase the ADS speed. The Commando Foregrip will stabilize the weapon with increased recoil control.

Meanwhile, the SAKIN Tread-40 Muzzle is incredibly valuable as it increases both horizontal and vertical recoil control. Finally, the 30 Round Mag attachment will grant you enough ammo to take out multiple foes.

Best Perks & Equipment for Modern Warfare 2 TAQ-V loadout

  • Base Perk 2: Double Time
  • Bonus Perk: Fast Hands
  • Ultimate Perk: Quick Fix
  • Tactical Equipment: Flash Grenade
  • Lethal Equipment: Frag Grenade
  • Field Upgrade: Dead Silence

Double Time and Dead Silence will combine to further counteract the weight of the TAQ-V. Thanks to the Base Perk and Field Upgrade, you’ll be zooming around most Modern Warfare 2 maps.

Bomb Squad will keep you safe from the countless explosives flying across the map, while Fast Hands will make reloading that 30 Round Mag a simple task.

Ghost is definitely a fantastic Ultimate Perk given how common UAVs are, but Quick Fix is a fun alternative as it’ll allow you to really play your life and aim for some lofty Killstreaks.

The Flash Grenade and its blinding effect are incredibly powerful thus it’s a no-brainer as your Tactical of choice, and a well-timed Frag Grenade is perfect for clearing out objectives.
