The Best Warzoen CR-56 AMAX Loadout | The King Is Back

The CR-56 AMAX was the absolute meta for a long time, but was then replaced by BOCW and Vanguard weapons. Thanks to some big buffs, the AMAX is now back in the meta. We have the best CR-56 AMAX setup and loadout.

Remember the good old Modern Warfare 2019 days? The Grau meta, the Bruen meta and not to forget the AMAX meta? Oh, how I loved those guns.... And then BOCW came along with the DMR 14 and MAC-10 and you couldn't play anything else. The CR-56 AMAX was the absolute meta for long range assault rifles in Warzone for a long time, until it was nerfed and replaced by the newer weapons. Thanks to the Vanguard Season 4: Reloaded update and some buffs, the AMAX is now back in the meta alongside the Kilo 141 and the M13.

The AMAX features excellent range and good damage. Compared to assault rifles like the KG M40 or the Cooper, however, it has significantly higher recoil. But don't you worry, the recoil is not as bad as with the EM2 or similar. So if you can handle at least a little bit of recoil, you should pick up the good old AMAX again.

MuzzleMonolithic Suppressor

OpticVLK 3.0x Optic
UnderbarrelCommando Foregrip
Magazine45 Round Mags

With the silencer and barrel, we extend the effective damage range while reducing recoil. The underbarrel further helps with target stability and overall control of the gun when firing. The magazine, of course, doesn't leave much choice, no one wants a 10 round magazine that turns the gun into a DMR, so we put the larger 45 round magazines on it. Finally, we choose the VLK sight, which all in all makes the absolute standard long range build for Modern Warfare weapons. Woks just as good as back in 2019...

The Best Secondary Weapon For The CR-56 AMAX

The AMAX is excellent at long range, but it doesn't have a high rate of fire that can save your butt in close combat. So we need a good secondary to defend ourselves at short distances. So why not take the best SMG in the game right now, which also has the fastest TTK ever? The Type 100 isn't for everyone, as it has a pretty small magazine and nasty recoil, but in absolute CQC, no weapon will shred your enemies as fast as the Type 100. Here's our best Type 100 loadout.

The Best Equipment For The CR-56 AMAX

LethalThrowing Knives

Well, the typical combo again. Throwing knives to quickly take out downed enemies, and stims to escape a push or aggressively push ourselves. Of course, you can also opt for stun grenades, but in our experience, stims are just the better choice...

The AMAX is good, but not as broken as those guns were:

The Best Perks For The CR-56 AMAX

Perk 1E.O.D.
Perk 2
Perk 3

For Perks, we go for E.O.D. for a little more resistance to explosions. Overkill is, of course, absolutely necessary so that we can carry two primary weapons at once and Amped we pack to be able to switch between the weapons faster. The AMAX isn't particularly nimble, so should we be surprised, we need to be able to switch to the Type 100 as quickly as possible.

That's all for now. Let's hope that the AMAX will not be nerfed again, but currently the meta seems to be actually quite diverse because finally MW2019 weapons are playable again.
