Warzone 2: Best TAQ-M Loadout & Tips

From my extensive 120-hour Warzone 2 experience, I present the following TAQ-M loadout.

COD Warzone 2.0 best TAQ-M loadout will allow you to secure long-ranged kills. When paired with the best perks and attachments, you can create the perfect loadout, and the weapon can become a deadly long-range gun, enabling you to one-shot the enemy. 

Key Takeaways
  • The TAQ-M is one of the best marksman rifles in Call of Duty Warzone 2.0.
  • When choosing the attachments for the TAQ-M, it is best to consider decreasing the recoil and increasing stability in aiming, which enables a secure kill by 1 to 2 shots.
  • This loadout will help players secure a high position in the leaderboard of the match.

The TAQ-M is a marksman rifle that has damage enough to secure a kill by 2 to 3 shots. It lacks accuracy and has a high vertical recoil. My COD Warzone 2.0 best TAQ-M loadout will focus on improving the overall accuracy and stabilizing the aim to a point where headshots are secured with one shot, and chest shots would require 1 to 2 shots.

A complete look at my recommended TAQ-M loadout: 

  • Barrel: LR1:7 20.5″
  • Muzzle: Tempus GH50
  • Under Barrel: FTac Ripper 56
  • Stock: TV Ballast Stock
  • Optic: VLK 4.0 Optic
“Lachmann sub”

  • Barrel: L38 Falcon 226MM
  • Muzzle: AVR-T90 Comp
  • Under Barrel: FSS Sharkfin 90
  • Stock: FT Mobile Stock
  • Magazine: 40-Round Mag
  • Base Perk 1: Battle Hardened
  • Base Perk 2: Overkill
  • Bonus Perk: Fast Hands
  • Ultimate Perk: Quickfix
  • Tactical: Stim
  • Lethal: Drill Charge
Munitions Box

Weapon Attachments

The attachments I use mainly refine the gun recoil steadiness increasing the damage and range.

These attachments are:

  • Barrel: LR1:7 20.5″ (Unlocks at TAQ-M Level 16)
  • Muzzle: Tempus GH50 (Unlocks at TAQ-V Level 14)
  • Under Barrel: FTac Ripper 56 (Unlocks at Lachmann-762 Level 6)
  • Stock: TV Ballast Stock (Unlocks at TAQ-M Level 7)
  • Optic: VLK 4.0 Optic (Unlocks at Kastov 762 to Level 4)
  • Improved Horizontal Recoil
  • Ease in Handling
  • Recoil Smoothness
  • Improved Hip Fire Accuracy


  • Not Fastest TTK
  • Struggles in extreme close range


Secondary Weapon

The secondary weapon I suggest taking with TAQ-M is the Lachmann sub. The SMG fulfills the role the TAQ-M lacks in close-quarter combat. The Lachmann sub has a decent amount of damage when paired with a high fire rate and small recoil, which can be further controlled with attachments.

The attachments for the Lachmann Sub that works best for me are:

  • Barrel: L38 Falcon 226MM (Unlocks at Lachmann-762 Level 7)
  • Muzzle: AVR-T90 Comp (Unlocks at Vaznev-9K Level 4)
  • Under Barrel: FSS Sharkfin 90 (Unlocks at Lachmann-762 Level 6)
  • Stock: FT Mobile Stock (Unlocks at Rapp H Level 10)
  • Magazine: 40-Round Mag

These attachments help to increase the recoil control in both vertical and horizontal directions. There is also an increase in damage to the gun with an increase in aim idle stability.

  • The stock helps to increase the walking speed with an increase in aim down sight speed.
  • It is similar to that of TAQ-m; The 40-round mag increases the ammunition and increases the requirement to reload.
  • The attachments are to be tuned to maximize the ADS speed and recoil stability to help in close combat or cross-fire situations.

Perk Package

The perk package is going to ensure you survive long enough to rank top in the leaderboard at the end of the game. It will help you take on any fire and tactical equipment that comes your way. It will help you gain the upper hand over your enemies. The perk package is starting to become popular day by day.

With TAQ, I recommend the following package:

  • Basic Perks: Battle Hardened and Overkill
  • Bonus Perk: Fasht Hands
  • Ultimate Perk: Quickfix

But if you don’t want to go with the custom perk package. Then you can go for the Phantom Package. It will include battle-hardened along with double time as base perks. The bonus perk is Cold-blooded. The ultimate perk Ghost will make you completely undetectable by any surveillance object, such as UAVs, portable radars, and heartbeat sensors.


The best setup for lethal and tactical equipment I use to help me tackle the situations in the game are:

  • Tactical: Stim
  • Lethal: Drill Charge

My Take On TAQ-M 

Huzaifa Malik Steam Profile
My Steam Profile

The best TAQ-M one-shot pack that I mentioned above is for securing kills by mainly taking headshots of enemies and 2 to 3 chest shots, even at long range. The gun is not good against SMG spamming in a crossfire but will help you secure a constant and large kill streak.

The attachments used are LR1:7 20.5″, Tempus GH50, FTac Ripper 56, TV Ballast Stock, and VLK 4.0 Optic. They target to increase the damage, bullet speed, and range. While also reducing the gun recoil and aim sway.

The secondary weapon fulfills the lack of TAQ-M in short range, and the perk package ensures your long survival to keep that kill streak and win the match. For a comprehensive understanding of Warzone 2, I suggest delving into Asad Ahmed’s review and exploring his in-depth analysis.
