Best Warzone CR-56 AMAX loadout: Attachments and perks

The CR-56 AMAX is perhaps the best Assault Rifle in Warzone Season 1, so here are the best attachments and perks to go with it.



The CR-56 AMAX has climbed to the top of the pack in Warzone Season 1, so here’s the best attachments and perks to give you the competitive edge in Verdansk and Rebirth Island.

Since the DMR 14 and Type 63 were nerfed, the FFAR and CR-56 AMAX have become some of Warzone’s most popular weapons. The AMAX is favored due to its high damage potential, being able to down fully armored players in only a few shots.

It’s a little harder to control than other assault rifles, but the recoil pattern is quite easy to learn. If you can manage to mount this weapon on a surface, you’ll almost be unstoppable.

Here’s the best build to maximize its potential across all Warzone game modes.

Best Warzone CR-56 AMAX loadout

  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel: XRK Zodiac S440
  • Optic: VLK 3.0x Optic
  • Underbarrel: Commando Foregrip
  • Ammunition: 45 Round Mags

There’s a reason why so many streamers and content creators use this CR-56 AMAX build. It’s maxed out for range and recoil control, being especially dominant at medium range. Much of the Verdansk is open ground, making a medium-long range build necessary for survival.

The Monolithic Suppressor and the longest barrel, the Zodiac S440, are necessary editions for the AMAX. These attachments often come hand in hand, maximizing any Assault Rifle’s effective range. Put a Commando Foregrip on this barrel and you’ll find controlling the vertical recoil much more manageable.

While optional, the VLK Optic makes this weapon even stronger. This unobtrusive optic allows you to have a clear view of enemies and where your shots are going, allowing for further recoil control. The 45 Round Mag increases your ADS time but reduces the need to reload mid firefight. With the current prevalence of self-revive, not letting that player crawl away could be the difference between a win and a loss.

The only downside to these attachments is a reduction in ADS time, making close-range engagements more difficult. If you stick to the outdoors with this weapon build and use it at its most effective range, you’ll find yourself being one of the most dominant players on the map.

Best perks to use with Warzone’s CR-56 AMAX

To round off this CR-56 AMAX build, you want to have the best perks equipped. Perks make or break a loadout, so you want to get those that will take you all the way to the endgame.

Perk 1 – E.O.D

E.O.D is a vital perk in Warzone, especially in squad matches. This reduces explosive damage received, meaning you can tank an onslaught of explosives and stay in the fight. Keep throwing on armor plates and you’ll be invulnerable.

Perk 2 – Overkill then Ghost

Because the AMAX is best suited for medium-long distance combat, you’ll want something great up close as a secondary. The MAC-10 is an excellent choice, so use Overkill to get two weapons from your first loadout.

Then, when you get another, you should take the Ghost perk. This will keep you hidden from UAVs and Heartbeat Sensors, which is extremely important for winning Warzone.

Perk 3 – Amped

While having two weapons, there’s nothing worse than running out of ammo and defencelessly dying while you swap weapons. Amped almost completely eliminates weapon swap time, so you can stay in the fight uninterrupted.

Take these attachments and perks into Verdansk and Rebirth Island with the CR-56 AMAX and you’ll find yourself running one of Warzone’s strongest loadouts.
