What is the best Modern Warfare 2 TAQ-V loadout? If you’ve flicked through the weapon choices in game and thought that the TAQ-V looks like a SCAR, you’re not wrong. This hard hitting battle rifle is based on the FN SCAR-H and it’s perfect for medium-range engagements.

Like all of the best Modern Warfare 2 guns, though, with a few small changes, you can turn this rifle into a devastating weapon that any soldier would be proud to have in their arsenal. Follow our recommendations below and watch the TAQ-V become one of the best Modern Warfare 2 battle rifles you’ve ever had the pleasure of using.

Modern Warfare 2 TAQ-V loadout

The TAQ-V is part of the Tactique Verte Platform family and, like its siblings, it’s a fast-firing rifle that has decent damage output and range. So, thanks to Call of Duty content creator ‘Wacke’, we know how to get the most out of it. The best TAQ-V Modern Warfare 2 loadout right now is:

  • Receiver: TAQ-V
  • Optic: Cronen Mini Red Dot
  • Rear Grip: Demo Cleanshot Grip
  • Barrel: 18″ Precision-6 Barrel
  • Underbarrel: XTEN Drop Grip
  • Magazine: 30 Round Mag

This barrel attachment is going to slow the gun down a little bit, but you should find that the benefits it offers to the damage range and bullet velocity outweigh any additional recoil, which is mitigated with the XTEN Drop Grip underbarrel attachment and Demo Cleanshot Grip – which does speed things up a little bit.

The 30 Round Mag is another attachment that you can take, or leave, but Wacke is confident that the improved ammo capacity is an important part of making this weapon tick. It does, again, slow it down a little though.

As for the optic, you can pretty much pick whichever one you’re comfortable with. However, Wacke has gone with the Cronen Mini Red Dot attachment in an effort to reduce the aim down sight time as much as possible while still benefitting from a precision sight.

Best Modern Warfare 2 TAQ-V class setup

So, now that your TAQ-V is all set up and ready to go, what do you pair it with? Here are our recommendations for the best secondary weapon, as well as perks, tacticals, and lethals.

The TAQ-V is a fairly balanced gun that performs well in short to medium-range engagements. If you’re looking to boost your long range engagement distance, we’d recommend picking something from our best Modern Warfare 2 sniper rifle guide using Overkill as one of your base perks. However, it can quite easily be run alongside a pistol.

For perks, we’d recommend picking Scavenger and Tracker for your base perks if you’re running a pistol as your secondary, or Scavenger and Overkill if you’re not. Scavenger lets you grab ammo from your enemies as they die and Tracker will show their footprints as they run around you.

In the bonus perk slot, Spotter is your ideal choice here, which will allow you to spot and hack enemy equipment. We’re recommending this as the best Modern Warfare 2 TAQ-V loadout is perfect for running and gunning, so this stops you getting hit by any nasty surprises. Finally, in the ultimate perk slot, Quick Fix is your best choice. This will help your regenerate health as you kill enemies, keeping you alive for longer.

As for your equipment, we’d recommend picking drill charges for your lethal and flash grenades as your tactical. Then when it comes to Field Upgrades, you want something that offers a great benefit like the Portable Radar or Battle Rage to save you in a pinch

That’s the best TAQ-V Modern Warfare 2 loadout in full. We’ll obviously update this guide if we see any better builds but for now, get out there and get grinding for all the Modern Warfare 2 camos.
