The TAQ Eradicator is a powerful LMG in MW3, allowing you to beam your opponents when running the optimal attachments. Here’s the best TAQ Eradicator loadout in Modern Warfare Season 1 to dominate long-range combat.

Modern Warfare 3 Season 1 is well underway, bringing three new weapons along with brand-new content for Call of Duty fans to jump into. The devs have also been quick with the balancing updates, keeping the meta fresh and nerfing some of the best weapons like the BAS-B in the December 14 update.

The TAQ Eradicator launched a few days before Season 1 dropped, and like any other LMG, it enables you to shoot with a blistering fast fire rate. However, the gun needs the right attachments to bring its recoil under control as well as increase its aiming stability.

With that in mind, here’s the best TAQ Eradicator loadout in MW3 Season 1, built with the meta attachments, Perks, and Equipment.

Best Modern Warfare 3 TAQ Eradicator loadout attachments

  • Muzzle: Tempus GH50
  • Barrel: Conquer-70 Long Barrel
  • Optic: MK. 3 Reflector
  • Stock: Tacverte Core Stock
  • Rear Grip: FSS Combat Grip

To build the best TAQ Eradicator loadout in MW3, we’ll focus on improving the weapon’s damage range and recoil control, so we’ll start off with the Tempus GH50 Muzzle, which improves the LMG’s recoil and makes it easier to handle. The Conquer-70 Long Barrel will significantly improve the aiming stability, bullet velocity, and range.

Then, you can use an Optic as per your preference but we recommend running the MK. 3 Reflector for precision shooting while ADS.

Finally, the Tacverte Core Stock will work in tandem with the FSS Combat Grip to bring down the gun kick while also improving the aiming stability and recoil control.

Best Modern Warfare 3 TAQ Eradicator loadout Perks & Equipment

  • Vest: Infantry
  • Gloves: Assault
  • Gear: EOD Padding
  • Boots: Covert Sneakers
  • Lethal: Frag Grenade
  • Tactical: Stun Grenade
  • Field Upgrade: Trophy System

For Perks, we’ve gone with the Infantry Vest, which is arguably the most reliable option in the game, providing you with everything you need as well as a boost for the Tac Sprint.

To provide an improvement in ADS speed while jumping, the Assault Gloves are very useful, while the EOD Padding adds protection against enemy Equipment. Lastly, you can’t go wrong with the Covert Sneakers, as they’ll keep you silent on the battlefield, giving you the chance to move around freely.

As for Equipment, we’ve gone with the Frag Grenade and Stun Grenade, as it’s a tried and tested combination.

When it comes to the Field Upgrade slot, the Trophy System is extremely powerful for objective game modes and generally keeps you protected against enemy explosives in positions of power.
