To make a well-balanced loadout, I specifically focus on perks that are most optimal for the battle royale mode. This includes selecting the perks that can help you in engagements and sudden encounters, especially when you are prone to surprise attacks and UAVs.

  • Base Perk 1: Overkill
  • Base Perk 2: Strong Arm
  • Bonus Perk: Spotter
  • Ultimate Perk: Survivor

Best Class Equipment

Now that you’re are all set with the perks, let’s discuss the best equipment that fits in with the TAQ-56 loadout to enhance its capabilities further. Therefore, to get the best results with the TAQ-56 AR setup, I use the following class.

  • Secondary: Lockwood-300
  • Tactical: Stun
  • Lethal: Frag

Secondary: Lockwood-300

In Warzone 2.0, you will have to deal with a lot of close-range encounters. For that reason, you must equip a deadly close-range champion that will devastate your opponents without giving them a chance to react. To do the job, one of the best shotguns for you is the Lockwood 300.

  • Lockwood is a double-barrel shotgun that fire two rounds at a time, dealing massive damage and having the capability of the one-shot kill.
  • The Lockwood 300 has pretty decent performance in its default state but equipping it with suitable attachments such as XTEN V2.0 Choke and Matuszek 812 Barrel along with Buck- PRO will make it more stable.
  • After attaching the right items, the Lockwood will become a close-range god that can encounter any kind of weapon.
  • All you have to do is focus on your aim and accuracy, and you will be able to take down entire squads with its explosive shots.

Tactical: Stun Grenade

What could be a more suitable option for tactical other than the stun grenade? Which is undoubtedly a great panic creator. The grenade dazes out the affected enemies upon detonation, making them unable to see or hear properly. 

The effect also decreases their mobility and aim, which makes them vulnerable targets. Make sure to throw a couple of these Grenades before rushing into a squad holding a specific position.

Lethal: Frag Grenade

For Lethal, I use the typical Frag Grenade as no other equipment can replace it. Nothing is more satisfying than cooking a grenade and throwing them at the hiding spot of enemies, only to watch them blown out by it.

 It is nearly impossible to counter a well-timed Frag grenade as the opponent will have a very minimal reaction time. While using Frag, make sure to count the seconds as holding it in your hands for too long is not gonna end up too good for you either.

My Opinion On TAQ-56

Huzaifa Steam Profile
My Steam Profile

The TAQ-56 is a suitable option for close to mid-range combat. The weapon gives me satisfying results in close fights as it features lethal damage and decent firing rate. You can also equip the weapon for long-range engagements, but it will be fairly challenging to be accurate due to the weapon’s stability and handling issues.

Other than that, Warzone also features weapon tuning, which helps in customizing each attachment according to your playstyle. Thus, you should check out attachments alongside the weapon to see the end results. 

If you’re also looking for some other decent weapons class, consider going through the guide on the best LMGs in COD Warzone 2.0.
