Crush your MWII Ranked Play competition with our top-tier loadout recommendations! Unleash the power of the TAQ-56, Kastov 545, and the deadliest SMGs to climb the ranks. 🥇🔥

Ever since MWII launched Ranked Play for Multiplayers, this game mode has attracted a lot of interest. We’ve seen countless Warzone content creators switch to Ranked play in the past weeks, and I really wanted to consolidate for you the best builds and loadouts you should use in this game mode. In ranked, you are competing for glory and climbing the ranks. There is no space for trying for loadouts or testing a gun. In Ranked, you will need to use the best of the best available. While we wait for Ranked play to come to Warzone 2 with season 3, in this article we give you the best loadout for MWII ranked.

Best Assault Rifle for Ranked Play MWII

You have to remember that ranked play applies the same rules as the CDL, so everything that is not allowed in the league will also not be available in Ranked. This means tuning of attachments is not available, and there is no Kastov 74u or ISO Hemlock, among other rules.

According to all the CDL pros and content creators, the absolute meta gun in Ranked Play is the TAQ-56. Extremely reliable, low recoil and great accuracy, the TAQ-56 is the main AR you should use to climb the ranks. Here is the build for the TAQ-56 in Ranked Play.

Best TAQ-56 build for Ranked

  • Muzzle: VLK Koloss Flash Hider
  • Barrel: 17.5″ Tundra Pro Barrel
  • Stock: TV XLINE Pro
  • Rear Grip: Demo Cleanshot Grip
  • Underbarrel: Commando Foregrip

The Muzzle VLK Koloss Flash hider helps with the recoil with minimal impact on ADS, and the same concepts apply to the Commando Foregrip. The Tundra barrel is here for the 24% increase in damage range and improved bullet velocity! Finally, the Demo Cleanshot grip and the TX Xline are here to improve the mobility of the gun and win these close-range fights!

Best Alternative to the TAQ-56 for Ranked

If you don’t like the TAQ-56 in Ranked, you can also try to use the Kastov 545, which is arguably as good as the TAQ-56 when it comes to the stats. Here is the best Kastov-545 ranked play loadout:

  • Muzzle: XTEN Ported 290
  • Barrel: IGK30 406mm
  • Stock: Prolite TL3
  • Rear Grip: True Tac Grip
  • Underbarrel: FSS Sharkfin 90

Best SMG for Ranked Play MWII

When it comes to close range there is one specific gun that is dominating the pro scene, and I’m thinking of the Vaznev-9k. Since season 2 reloaded, we are also seeing a lot of players switch to the Vel-46 and this is awesome. The new version of the MP7 has been buffed with the update and is now an excellent contender for Ranked Play!

Best Vaznev-9k loadout for Ranked Play

  • Muzzle: Bruen Pendulum
  • Stock: Otrezat Stock
  • Rear Grip: True Tac Grip
  • Underbarrel: FSS Sharkfin 90

There is also a version where you remove the muzzle and replace the FSS Sharkfin with the Edge-47. Both are great and will help you in Ranked play!

Best VEL-46 loadout for Ranked Play

  • Magazine: 30 round mag
  • Stock: Assault-60
  • Rear Grip: Schlager Soldier
  • Underbarrel: Bruen Sync Shot

That’s it! Remember that you can find the best loadout for every single gun in the game for Warzone 2, Caldera, MWII, and Ranked Play directly in the CODMunity app!
