Meta TAQ-56 Attachments in Warzone 2

As there’s no good barrel for the TAQ-56, you’ll want a muzzle that increases bullet velocity. The Echoless-80 is our choice as it increases bullet velocity by 30% and damage range by 14.4%, in addition to some recoil control. The Gauge-9 Mono and Harbinger D20 are other good alternatives if you don’t have this unlocked.

Our favorite optic for long-range guns is the Schlager 3.4x, but choose whichever one you like the most. Some aggressive Warzone 2 players prefer an optic with less zoom like the Aim OP-V4.

The FTAC Ripper 56 is a solid choice for an underbarrel as it reduces horizontal and vertical recoil by 4% and gives additional recoil stabilization.

Long-range guns need all of the additional bullet velocity they can get, and the 5.56 High Velocity ammunition increases this by a huge 44%. For this reason, it’s a must-have attachment for the TAQ-56.

Finally, to let you take down more enemies before reloading, we’ve opted for the 60 Round Mag.
