The best CR-56 AMAX loadouts in Call of Duty: Warzone and Modern Warfare

Remember the Galil? This is his son.

The second new weapon added to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone in season four was an assault rifle—and it’s reminiscent of a classic from the past.

Inspired by the Galil, a favorite gun from Call of Duty: Black Ops, the CR-56 AMAX is a decent assault rifle that works best at close to medium range. It's not the best gun to take down enemies at a distance, but that doesn't mean it can't be customized to work well.

Months later, the AMAX has become a favorite of many top Warzone players, outpacing even the long-favored Grau 5.56. It feels like the AMAX just hits harder, especially when chunking down armor in Verdansk.

Here are some basic starting loadouts for the AMAX to use in a variety of situations, including in the battle royale hellscape that is Warzone.

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

Featuring a larger magazine, better control, accuracy, and range, this loadout is solid for the huge map of Verdansk. This is the loadout that top content creators and players are using.

As with most AR loadouts, it uses the Monolithic Suppressor, which is a must. Combine that with the VLK 3.0x Optic and its range gets a huge buff from what it normally is able to do.

The Commando Foregrip will help your recoil, and 45 Round Mags keep you shooting until the enemy's armor is gone or they are down for the count.

Barrel: FSS 11.8" Squall
Laser: Tac Laser
Stock: No Stock
Underbarrel: Commando Foregrip
Rear Grip: XRK CR-56 Stippled Wrap

This build turns the AMAX into a SMG hybrid weapon, maximizing mobility and aim down sight speed. This loadout is fun on smaller maps, allowing you to move quickly and assault swiftly.

Barrel: XRK Zodiac S440
Optic: VLK 3.0x Optic
Underbarrel: Operator Foregrip
Rear Grip: XRK CR-56 Rubberized Wrap

If range is your thing, you can try this loadout for recoil control and throw on a VLK 3.0x optic to help see enemies at further distances. The AMAX excels at shorter ranges, but this build is your best bet if you want to strike from afar.
