Best Warzone 2 TAQ-56 loadout attachments

  • Muzzle: Harbinger D20
  • Barrel: 17.5″ Tundra Pro Barrel
  • Optic: Aim Op-V4
  • Ammunition: 5.56 High Velocity
  • Magazine: 60 Round Mag

Since Warzone 2‘s TAQ-56 will be used for long-range engagements, you’ll need a nice optic that provides a clear sight along with some zoom for enemies slightly further away, so we’ve gone with the Aim Op-V4. The Harbinger D20 muzzle and 17.5″ Tundra Pro Barrel will buff your damage range, bullet velocity, recoil, and hip fire accuracy.

Next, the 5.56 High Velocity Ammo ensures your bullets connect faster, increasing the weapon’s bullet velocity which allows you to get the first shot no matter the range. Lastly, we have the 60 Round Mag so that you can take down multiple enemies without needing to reload.
