In the game’s open beta, this gun was called the Scar-L, while the earlier call of duty games called it the FN-Scar, and players would flock to it as soon as they noticed its versatility and power.

The load-out I have bought for you for the TAQ-56 overpowers the already overpowered gun, and it boosts its strength while at the same time maintaining its versatility.

This array of attachments also suppresses the weapon’s recoil, making it very easy to handle during firefights at close range.

For the Muzzle attachment, I have chosen the Gauge 9 Mono, which is great at suppressing your gun’s sound while increasing the bullet velocity, keeping the recoil smooth and in control.

This attachment, however, will slightly increase the gun’s range and decrease the handling. To use this Muzzle, you must first unlock it by leveling up the Kastov-74u to weapon level 17.

To mitigate and smooth out the handling of the TAQ-56, I have picked the 12″ Tacshort barrel. This barrel will compensate for the loss in handling due to the muzzle attachment.

For the underbarrel, my pick is the FTAC Ripper 56, which has some of the best recoil stabilization in-game. To unlock this underbarrel, you must upgrade the Lachmann-762 to weapon level 6.

For the Rear Grip, I have chosen the FSS Combat Grip, which also boosts the gun’s recoil, making it more stable to handle.

As the optic, I have chosen the stock TAQ-56 iron sights, which are more than enough to dispatch your enemies at close ranges and with no cost to weapon stability.

Now a weapon in Modern Warfare 2 is not everything, and you need certain perks and equipment to go with it to get the most out of it.

To get the most out of your TAQ-56 in close counter combat, you will need a good shotgun, where the Lockwood 300 comes into play. Unlike many in the game, this shotgun packs a punch even in long ranges, has great precision, and is a good side weapon overall.

I have chosen Double Time and Scavenger for the Base perks. Double time allows you to move fast in the game, which is a boon, especially in close counter combat. Scavenger, on the other hand, lets you grab ammo from players you have dispatched.

As a bonus perk, I have gone with Fast Hands, which allows you to reload your guns and change your weapons faster. The ultimate perk I have chosen for the TAQ-56 is a quick fix that lets you regain your health by killing enemies.

For the Tactical equipment, My pick for the TAQ-56 is the stun grenade which stuns your enemies and slows them down. While for the Lethal equipment, my pick here is the great throwing knife, especially for close counter combat.

As the Field Upgrade, I have gone with Dead Silence, which lets you stealthily get the drop on your enemies.
