According to NICKMERCS, the CR-56 AMAX has the best time-to-kill in Warzone Season 5. He lovingly calls the best new Warzone AR loadout the Galil. 

NICKMERCS uses an extended magazine because everyone loves more bullets. To help with the weapon's kick and sway, NICKMERCS uses a Monolithic Suppressor, as well as a Merc Foregrip. For easy pings, he adds the VLK 3.0x Optic in for good measure.
