Looking for the best Warzone 2 and MW2 Shotgun loadout in Season 5? You’re on the spot! Unlike Warzone 1, Shotgun class has received so much love from the developers in Warzone 2 and MW2 since the launch of the game. However, they won’t one-shot the enemy opponents in Warzone, while you can still manage to get a two-tap kill with a fast TTK in Warzone 2, and a one-shot kill in MW2 with our loadout here. Let’s get started!
What is The Best Shotgun in Warzone 2 and MW2 Season 5?
- Muzzle: SA Schweigen DX
- Laser: Schlager UL0-66 Laser
- Guard: TV CF40 Guard
- Bolt: Expedite L-Bolt
- Stock: Schlager Resonance
When it comes to shotguns in Warzone 2 and MW2, most players remember the KV Broadside as the meta. This shotgun is an absolute beast, and you can still use it as a powerful weapon in Season 5 as well. However, you should note that the good old KV has been nerfed several times, and it won’t shoot that weird range it used to do. It also won’t give you the two-shot kills which were the main reason players were using it.
Now if KV Broadside is nerfed, and its brother MX Guardian is out of use, what can we Shotgun players pick? We need a Shotgun that can shoot semi-automatic shots so that we don’t have to waste time rechambering shots inside it. And it should also be able to kill targets with two shots only. You’ve guessed it; the Expedite 12.
While Bryson 890 and 800 are good choices here, the Expedite meets all of your expectations from the best MW2 Shotgun loadout in Season 5. This weapon is semi-auto, it can kill targets with one shot in MW2 and two shots in Warzone 2, and most importantly, it’s not a heavy bag to carry like the KV. But still, you need a good loadout for this weapon to work properly.
Best MW2 Shotgun Loadout in Season 5
First, pick the weapon and put a SA Schweigen muzzle on it without hesitation. This Shotgun does not have a barrel to increase its damage and range stats, so if you want these two qualities, the SA Schweigen is your best shot. Tune the attachment to maximum bullet velocity, and let’s move on to the next one.
The next attachment on the list is the Schlager UL0-66 Laser. This laser is a perfect option for boosting your gun’s hip-fire accuracy. What makes it perfect is that the enemies won’t see this laser and you won’t get exposed while rushing into close-quarter combat zones. This is while you can still use the Point-G3P 04 laser attachment instead for maximum accuracy, but it’ll expose your position with its visibility.
Next up is the TV CF40 Guard for the best Warzone 2 and MW2 Shotgun loadout in Season 5. This guard will give you exactly what you need while using a shotgun; sprint speed, and hip walking speed. These two qualities are needed for a good Shotgun class weapon, as the player needs to have more advantage in movement and also shoot faster and better from the hip.
For the fourth attachment on the list, we have the Expedite L-Bolt. This attachment is very crucial for the best Warzone 2 and MW2 Shotgun loadout in Season 5. You ask why? Because it adds a very important point to the fire rate stats of your weapon; which means your TTV will get much quicker if you just keep tapping the fire button!
And the final attachment for the best Warzone 2 and MW2 Shotgun loadout in Season 5, we have the Schlager Resonance stock. This stock gives you crouch movement speed, sprint speed, and ADS time speed. This is while you won’t miss as much of your accuracy as you do if you pick the Resonance Stock Collapsed.
There you have it! This is the best Shotgun loadout to use right now in Season 5 until the developers make another balancing update to the game. You should note that the same loadout of this Shotgun class setup can be used in both MW2 and Warzone 2 with the same attachments; test for yourselves!
Call of Duty: Warzone 2 and MW2 are currently available to play on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC.
