© 2018 authors. Published by the American Physical Society. We study the LHC sensitivity to a W′ produced via bottom and charm quarks and decaying to τ flavor leptons in the mass range 200-1000 GeV. We show that the extra b quarks necessitated by the production mechanism can improve the background rejection compared to an inclusive analysis relying solely on τ tagging and ETmiss. We present prospective limits on the couplings and compare them to the best fit to the R(D(∗)) anomalies in B-meson decays.
