Best Warzone CR-56 AMAX loadout attachments

Warzone CR-56 AMAX loadout attachments
  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel: XRK Zodiac S440
  • Optic: VLK 3.0x Optic
  • Underbarrel: Commando Foregrip
  • Ammunition: 45 Round Mag

We’ll start off our Warzone CR-56 AMAX loadout by improving its effective damage range with the help of the Monolithic Suppressor muzzle and XRK Zodiac S440 barrel. The Commando Foregrip will boost both its aiming and recoil stability.

We went with the VLK 3.0x Optic for its 3.0x magnification that lets us pick off foes from a distance. Finally, we’ll cap off this loadout with the 45 Round Mag to ensure that we have enough ammunition to eliminate multiple opponents.

Best Warzone CR-56 AMAX Perks and Equipment

E.O.D perk in Warzone
  • Perk 1: E.O.D
  • Perk 2: Overkill
  • Perk 3: Amped
  • Lethal Equipment: Throwing Knife
  • Tactical Equipment: Stims

Enemies will often throw Grenades, Thermites, and other explosives your way, so we recommend equipping E.O.D Perk to reduce explosive damage. Using Overkill will pair the gun with a close-range SMG like the Marco 5, and Amped ensures instantaneous weapon swapping.

Coming to our choice of equipment, Throwing Knives are a solid option for quick eliminations in tight situations, while Stims give you a much-needed health and speed boost if you find yourself taking too much damage in battle.
