Modern Warfare 2 TAQ-56: Best Attachments & Best Loadout

Nov 24, 2022 · 24


Quick Links

Modern Warfare 2 features many familiar weapons -- such as the M4 Assault Rifle -- that have been featured in the previous Call Of Duty titles. In this guide, you will be introduced to the TAQ-56 which has a striking resemblance to the Scar-H, a fan-favorite weapon from the original Modern Warfare games. The TAQ-56 is one of the many Assault Rifles in Modern Warfare 2, and by progressing through its Weapon Platform, you can unlock the TAQ-V and the TAQ-M.

The TAQ-56 is a heavy-hitting Assault Rifle, and much like the M4, it aims to be the jack-of-all-trades in most scenarios. This is because the TAQ-56 has one of the most consistent set of stats among all the Assault Rifles in the game. The TAQ-56 also possesses a fast fire rate and a quick reload time, while also dealing substantial damage to the upper torso. Luckily, this gun is fairly easy to obtain, as it is the base of its Weapon Platform and can be unlocked at level 19.

The above attachments chosen for the TAQ-56 will increase its damage, range, and accuracy at the cost of a small amount of handling. The first attachment recommended is the 17.5'' TUNDRA PRO BARREL, which will increase the weapon's effective range. This will make the TAQ-56 more formidable at long-range combat -- especially beneficial for modes like DMZ and Warzone 2. This attachment also has the added benefit of increased hip fire accuracy, making it more viable for firing from the hip up close.

The second recommended attachment is the FSS OLE-V LASER, which will increase your ADS and sprint-to-fire speed, allowing you to get your gun up much quicker after sprinting. As an added bonus, the laser sight also adds extra stabilization whilst aiming, making it more viable for mid-to-long-range engagements. Likewise, the FSS SHARKFIN 90 and the FSS COMBAT GRIP aim to make the TAQ-56 more accurate, allowing you to land your shots more easily.

The last recommended attachment is the 40 ROUND MAG, which bumps up your magazine capacity from 30 to 40 rounds. This attachment holds a slight edge over the 60 ROUND MAG, since it provides a larger magazine size without counteracting much of the benefits of the other attachments. If you are looking for an additional 20 rounds, then you can run the 60 ROUND MAG. However, doing so will significantly slow down your reload speed, as well as your overall handling for the TAQ-56. If 30 rounds is enough for you, then consider using the ECHOLESS-80 muzzle attachment. This way you will get sound suppression, recoil smoothness, and additional range for your gun.

Go-To Perks For The TAQ-56

Base Perks Bonus Perk (Earned in Match) Ultimate Perk (Earned in Match)
Battle Hardened & Scavenger Focus Quick Fix

Accuracy is key when it comes to the heavy-hitting TAQ-56, so choosing perks that aid in accuracy is important to make the most of this class setup. For your first Base Perk, consider using Battle Hardened. Being agile and quick on your feet is not exactly necessary for this class setup, as you want to prioritize holding down the line and hitting opponents from mid-to-long range, so Battle Hardened will aid in this regard by minimizing the effects of concussive tactical equipment such as Stun and Flash grenades. Secondly, choose Scavenger to ensure that you never run out of bullets in your primary weapon.

Fast Hands is usually a solid choice for your bonus perk. However, the TAQ-56 already possesses one of the fastest reload speeds of its weapon type, and the 40 ROUND MAG only slows it down by a small amount. Therefore, consider using Focus instead. This perk will greatly increase your flinch resistance, making it much easier to land your shots from afar whilst taking damage. Lastly, consider using Quick Fix to instantly start regenerating lost health so long as you are gaining eliminations.

Secondary Recommendations

The perks chosen above will make your primary weapon more accurate, as well as allowing you to quickly heal and never run out of ammo. However, the exclusion of Ghost will make you more vulnerable to enemy UAVs. Therefore, consider carrying a launcher like the PILA or the JOKR. Both of these options are the best at taking down enemy aircraft, helping to keep you and your teammates off the mini-map. Running a launcher as your secondary will also allow you to keep the airspace clear. As a result, you and your teammates can call in your desired killstreaks as soon as you earn them.
