5. TAQ-V

The TAQ-V is a new entry into our meta weapons list, but for good reason. Even if the recoil is high, its damage is huge, making it the mid-range assault rifle of choice for highly skilled players and has even been used to break the Warzone world record for kills!

  • Muzzle: Sakin Tread-40
  • Optic: Aim OP-V4 
  • Underbarrel: FTAC Ripper 56 
  • Magazine: 50 Round Drum 
  • Rear Grip: FSS Combat Grip 

Even if the damage is very high, you’ll want to use the best TAQ-V weapon tuning for Warzone 2 to reduce the gun’s kick and make it more accurate.

4. Chimera

While the Chimera is an assault rifle, it is actually most effective when used instead of an SMG. This is because, with the build below, you can get it close to SMG mobility and handling whilst keeping its low recoil and impressive damage range!

  • Muzzle: Lockshot KT85 
  • Barrel: 6.5″ EXF Vorpal 
  • Laser: VLK LZR 7MW 
  • Magazine: 45 Round Mag 
  • Rear Grip: D37 Grip 

As these attachments are needed to speed up the Chimera to near-SMG levels, the tuning for this gun is also very important. Check out our Warzone 2 Chimera loadout guide to find the best tuning for this gun and more!

  • Muzzle: Echoless-80 
  • Optic: SZ Holotherm 
  • Underbarrel: FTAC Ripper 56 
  • Ammunition: 5.56 High Velocity 
  • Magazine: 60 Round Mag
