Does the first question arise how do you unlock TAQ-M? First, you have to reach player rank 19, which will unlock the TAQ-56 gun. It is the starter weapon on the Tactique Verte platform. Then you have leveled up the TAQ-56 to a weapon proficiency of level 20 to unlock TAQ-M. Since you will need to spend some time upgrading the TAQ-56, have a look at our best TAQ-56 loadout.

The TAQ-M is a marksman rifle having damage enough to secure a kill by 2 to 3 shots. It lacks accuracy and has a high vertical recoil. Our 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.

Weapon Attachments

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

Each attachment affects the damage and control of the gun, which are discussed below.

Barrel

The barrel LR1:7 20.5″ increases the overall damage and penetrating power of the bullet, thus securing the kill with a single shot. It increases the damage by increasing the angular speed of the bullet, which in turn increases the overall speed of the bullet, also accompanying an increase in range.

It also shows an increase in accuracy as the bullet is traveling at a much faster speed and has decreased the chances of being deviated from its path. We tuned the attachment towards maximum recoil steadiness as the barrel results in an increase in the velocity; thus conserving the momentum of the bullet, the recoil of the gun would also increase.

The barrel will aid in making sure that there is little or no bullet drop. With the higher bullet velocity, your range will also improve, and you will be able to land shots at a longer range. 

The barrel LR1:7 20.5″ shows an increase in hip fire accuracy accompanied by a decrease in aim down sight speed and a decrease in hip recoil control.

Muzzle

The muzzle Tempus GH50 is used for decreasing the vertical recoil of the gun. It is observed that the TAQ-M has a lot of vertical recoils, which is to be expected of a marksman rifle. The attachment is tuned to maximum recoil stabilization and maximum gun-kick control. This tuning focuses on decreasing the vertical vibration.

The muzzle Tempus GH50 improves the overall hip fire accuracy, aiming idle stability, which is to focus aim for a long time, and recoil stabilization being the important factor. The attachment affects the aim down sight speed, and the walking speed of the character while the gun is equipped.

Under Barrel

The under barrel FTac Ripper 56, has a universal attachment, meaning it can be attached to all the guns of the same platform. It enhances the hip fire accuracy and stabilizes the recoil. The FTac Ripper 56 eliminates the disadvantages of the muzzle Tempus GH50 and barrel LR1:7 20.5″ in TAQ-M loadout third attachment.

As the under barrel increases, the hip fire accuracy along with idle aim stabilization. It also decreases the recoil of the TAQ-M, ensuring that you have almost zero to no aim sway. But affects the walking speed of the player as under the barrel makes the gun heavy. 

The under-barrel FTac Ripper 56 is tuned to aim down-sight stability. It is also tuned to maximize walking speed. To minimize the drawbacks of the under barrel, making it the best attachment of the COD Warzone 2.0 TAQ-M loadout.

Stock

The TV Ballast stock plays a vital role in eliminating the disadvantages of the under-the-barrel and increasing the player’s sprint speed while the gun is equipped as the stock helps to divide the load of the weapon. It also increases the speed of walking while aiming and reduces the sway in the aim during crouch movement.

The TV Ballast stock is tuned to maximum aim, down-sight stability, and aim walking speed. This helps to minimize the effects of the decrease in recoil stability and aiming stability.

Optic

The VLK 4.0 optic, providing the 4.0x magnification for securing long-range kills, makes it one of the best attachments for the TAQ-M to take in a fight. The optic helps in increasing the accuracy and range of the TAQ-M. The VLK 4.0 optic is to be tuned to maximize aim down sight stability, and also, the eye position is set too far.

As the optic increases, the range and the aim sway of the TAQ-M increase because you would experience greater sway at greater precision. So, if you don’t like it, we would prefer the red dot optic DF105 Reflex Sight.

The DF105 Reflex Sight has the advantage of the precision sight picture but decreases the range and aim down sight speed. It is tuned to increase the speed of the aim-down sight. Also, the eye position is set to far.

Secondary Weapon

The secondary weapon we 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.

Attachments of Secondary Weapon

The attachments for the Lachmann sub are,

  • Barrel: L38 Falcon 226MM (Unlocks at Lachmann-762 Level 7)

  • 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 aim down sight speed and recoil stability to help in close combat or cross-fire situations.

The bonus perk is Cold-blooded which will unlock after 4 minutes start of the match. It will make you undetectable by AI targeting systems and thermal optics. It will not trigger a high alert warning to the enemies not be highlighted in any other scopes and cameras.

Enabling you to avoid being detected, and you can also do more easily if you are camping. On the other hand, if you have a kill streak which is also the goal of this guide, you will be able to hide from the enemies seeking you.

Equipment

The best setup for lethal and tactical equipment we are gonna use to help us to tackle the situations in the game are,

  • Tactical: Stim
  • Lethal: Drill Charge

Stim

The Stim is one of the useful pieces of equipment that will increase your chances of survival. It restores your health and refreshes your Tactical Sprint ability, allowing you to easily reposition if you are in a dangerous area and tackle the incoming enemy fire.

Drill Charge

The Drill charge is the best go-to lethal equipment to deal with campers. The lethal can attach and burrow through walls, ceilings, and roofs of buildings and are even able to exterminate enemies inside vehicles. It does so by charging the thermal lance, which burrows through a wall or anything and then explodes. Making it best against infantry and mobilized forces. 

Field Upgrade

The best loadout for field upgrade is Munitions Box. It enables you to deploy a box of ammunition for yourself and your teammates. As the TAQ-56 has a total of 10 rounds of ammo with 30 reserves. It benefits in situations of crossfire and long-duration fights.

If you do not have ammo problems, then you can take Dead Silence as a field upgrade. It temporarily makes your footsteps silent to secure a silent kill. The cooldown duration refreshes by getting a kill through the gun, melee, and throwing knife. 

Wrap Up

The best TAQ-M one-shot pack 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.
