Best TAQ-56 Search & Destroy Class in COD MW2

by Daniel Wenerowicz

Some weapons clearly dominate the Search and Destroy meta in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 including the TAQ-56. Most competitions and even the Call of Duty League have banned the Kastov-74u, making the Scar one of the most popular picks by far.

Like the Kastov, the M4 was also added to the gentleman’s agreement or bans list, but even the M4 has a tough time against the TAQ-56 at longer ranges. We’ll help you build the best class possible for the Scar in Modern Warfare 2 so you can easily dominate your own Search and Destroy matches.

COD Modern Warfare 2 – Best TAQ-56 Search and Destroy Class

To kick things off, we need a TAQ-56 that has the best attachments possible, otherwise, the rest of the loadout won’t matter. The focus for this weapon should be recoil control, damage range, and a bit of mobility to keep the ADS speed competitive. Below you can find all of the necessary attachments.

  • Barrel: 17.5″ Tundra Pro Barrel
  • Muzzle: FTAC Castle Comp
  • Underbarrel: FTAC Ripper 56
  • Rear Grip: Demo Cleanshot Grip
  • Ammunition: High Velocity

Most of these attachments are integral to the TAQ-56 in Search and Destroy, but some of them can be moved around. You can add the TV Xline Pro as a replacement for the rear grip. If you need an optic as well, add the Cronen Mini Pro and swap out the High Velocity ammunition.

Next, you’ll need your perks, and these are almost always the same, regardless of the weapons. In your Perk Package, you should have Double Time, Bomb Squad, Fast Hands, and Ghost. For players who are in public MW2 matches, you can try High Alert and Resupply as the bonus and Ultimate Perk replacements.

The final pieces of this Search & Destroy class include all of the equipment. Lethals can be the Semtex or the Frag Grenade, but if you can get used to it, the Frag is far more versatile. Flash Grenades should go in the Tactical slot, but Stuns are a decent alternative in competition settings. With those set, you just need a good Field Upgrade. Dead Silence is almost always the best and an easy choice. Trophy Systems are good in team settings or niche situations, but they are tougher to pull off in MW2.
