Hello, and welcome, to another entry into out Best Modern Warfare 2 Loadout of the Week series. Last time, we shared one of the best Modern Warfare 2 Fennec loadouts with you – explaining just how you could use last week’s best Modern Warfare 2 loadout of the week to devastate with it. This time around, though, we’re here to talk about the TAQ-V. This might not be your first thought when throwing together a class, but the TAQ-V is one of the best Modern Warfare 2 battle rifles and shouldn’t be overlooked.

But, while there’s so much more to say about this BR, you’re probably just here for the loadout’s build. So, let’s start talking about that instead. Call of Duty content creator ‘Chuck‘ is always on the ball when it comes to the best Modern Warfare 2 loadouts and this TAQ-V build doesn’t miss.

Do you see what we did there, with the not-missing and the fact that it’s an accurate build? No? Well, anyway, here’s what you need to know about one of the best Modern Warfare 2 TAQ-V loadouts below:

  • Muzzle: Sakin Tread-40
  • Underbarrel: FTAC Ripper 56
  • Laser: FSS OLE-V Laser
  • Rear Grip: FSS Combat Grip
  • Magazine: 30 Round Mag

As you can see in the video below, everything about this TAQ-V build is trying to negate the recoil kick this weapon ships with. It hits hard, but there’s a cost to that – so, it needs to be accounted for.

Thankfully, the Sakin Tread-50 muzzle attachment and FTAC Ripper 56 underbarrel attachment both work towards negating that alongside the FSS Combat Grip. The laser attachment opted for can be swapped out for an optic attachment, but this improves ADS speeds; we agree with Chuck in thinking that this is more beneficial when it comes to multiplayer in MW2.

Looking at the rest of the loadout, we still think that akimbo X13’s are the way forward. We’re expecting these to be patched quite a bit in the future, but they’re still viable for now – provided you’re quick on the draw.

If you want to make the most of this sidearm, you’re going to need to use the following build:

  • Muzzle: FT Steel Fire
  • Barrel: XRK Sidewinder-6 Slide
  • Laser: 1mw Pistol Laser
  • Magazine: 24 Round Mag
  • Rear Grip: Akimbo X13

Adding to this, we recommend using Semtex and Stun Grenades alongside a perk setup including Battle Hardened, Double Time, Quick Fix, and Resupply.

Well, how do we all feel about that? Not bad, right? If you’re out there looking for the best Modern Warfare 2 guns to use, you have to check this one out before the Modern Warfare 2 Season 2 release date drops. Your build for the best Warzone 2 guns might look a little different, but this should hold its own in the battle royale too – just saying.
