The Best Warzone 2.0 TAQ-M Loadout | A Viable Mid-Range Weapon

We have the best Warzone 2.0 TAQ-M Loadout below. A very precise marksman rifle, that hits hard. Easy to play and something for the mid-range.

It's no secret that the TAQ-M isn't one of the best weapons in Warzone 2.0. But we shouldn't forget it completely, because it is at least viable for long and mid-range engagements. And being part of the SCAR platform, it has access to pretty decent attachments.

  • If you want to use a good alternative to the TAQ-M, try its brother the TAQ-V.

The fire rate doesn't matter with a marksman rifle, and neither does ADS as much, since we aren't using this weapon for close-range engagements or emergencies. So we focused on range and accuracy in this loadout. With the barrel and muzzle, we additionally increase the damage a little, so that the weapon is playable out to far longer ranges.

Secondary Weapon: Lachmann Sub

With a Marksman rifle as the main weapon, we need something for the short-range. We prefer the Lachmann Sub. An SMG with a 40 round magazine and good handling is perfect to push into buildings. This is. agreat choice alongside the TAQ-M, but you could also consider the Fennec.

Perks (Basic, Bonus & Ultimate)

Of all the perk packages, Specter is simply the best:

Perk Package Spectre

Basic Perks

Double Time / Tracker

Bonus PerksSpotter
Ultimatite Perk


Ghost is incredibly important with the constant UAV spam in Warzone 2.0, so unfortunately we have to forego Overkill. Simply buy one of the two weapons at a buy station during the match and take the Specter package with you in your loadout. Double Time and Tracker are also very helpful, especially in fights at shorter distances. Spotter, on the other hand, is very situational and usually doesn't matter. But hey, the overall package is solid.

Equipment (Lethal & Tactical)

Here we have the best equipment for an aggressive SMG loadout:


Flash Grenade

There is simply no better combination than Semtex and Flash Grenade. If you're super aggressive, Stims and Throwing Knife might be more appropriate, but with a marksman rifle this doesn't happen so often.
