With Call of Duty: Warzone Season 4, the CR-56 AMAX has finally received a nerf, reducing the weapon's damage potential output. As the most-used Assault Rifle in the previous season, the CR-56 AMAX is still a force to be reckoned with, despite the nerf.
With that said, here is the best loadout for the CR-56 AMAX at the outset of Season 4.
Best CR-56 AMAX loadout for Season 4
Developer Raven Software decided to reduce the Upper Torso Damage multiplier from 1.2 to 1.1.
This is to knock the CR-56 AMAX off the top of the long-range AR game. Despite the nerf, if you have a great loadout for the CR-56 AMAX, it can still be one of the very best Assault Rifles in Warzone Season 4 and is arguably still one of the strongest guns in Verdansk.
That's if you have the best CR-56 loadout, featuring all the right attachments to get the job done.
- Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
- Barrel: XRK Zodiac S440
- Underbarrel: Commando Foregrip
- Optic: VLK 3.0x Optic
- Ammunition: 45 Round Mag
Opting for the XRK Zodiac S440 barrel increases the weapon's damage range, bullet velocity, and recoil control at a small cost of mobility but with this rifle, it's all about stopping power so it's worth the trade-off, especially so since the gun's damage output was nerfed a bit.
The VLK 3.0x Optic gives you a clear view of your enemies. While it can be swapped out for a Stock option, this Optic also allows for better recoil control, making it our top pick.
The Commando Foregrip trades some movement speed for weapon stability and again, it's a trade worth making.
We've reverted back to the Monolithic Suppressor for the best CR-56 AMAX loadout in Warzone Season 4 since it is always great to stay off the radar in Verdansk with its sound suppression. The attachment also adds more effective damage range, while reducing ADS speed and weapon stability. It's still a great tradeoff in our opinion.
Lastly, the 45 Round Mag allows you to fight longer without having to reload. However, the tradeoff here is that it does increase your ADS time a bit.
So there you have it, the best CR-56 AMAX loadout at the start of Season 4, taking the balance changes to weapons and attachments into consideration.
