Apex Legends players discover secret Wattson nerf

If you’re looking to get up close and personal in Call of Duty: Warzone, here are the five best Shotgun loadouts you should be running.

With Warzone players having an arsenal of weapons from Black Ops Cold War and Modern Warfare at their disposal, there is plenty of choice for those close-range engagements. SMGs such as the MAC-10 are extremely popular, but for a little more stopping power up close, you can’t go wrong with a trusty Shotgun.

With how many fights occur indoors in Warzone, a Shotgun is a perfect accompaniment for getting up in players’ faces. We’ve compiled the five best Shotguns, and their attachments, that you should run in Warzone Season 2.

5. Best VLK Rogue Warzone class

The VLK Rogue hasn’t received much love from the Call of Duty community, but with one key ingredient, it can destroy players up-close.

  • Muzzle: Choke
  • Barrel: 16″ Warlord
  • Laser: 5mW Laser
  • Pump Grip: XRK Race Grip
  • Ammunition: 8-R Dragon’s Breath

After equipping the Dragons Breath Rounds, it’s game over for any player unlucky enough to get in your face. Not only will your initial shot do a ton of damage, but the fire will also continue to tick away at their health.

4. Best Streetsweeper Warzone class

Introduced in Black Ops Cold War Season 1, the Streetsweeper is an automatic Shotgun that’s deadly up close.

  • Muzzle: Agency Choke
  • Barrel: 13″ Reinforced Heavy
  • Laser: SWAT 5mW Laser Sight
  • Stock: Wire Stock
  • Ammunition: STANAG 18 RND

This loadout will allow you to take out whole teams at close range, and the silencer means you’ll get off several shots before they even know what’s happening.

Just be careful of the Streetsweepers reload time, however, as it’s exceptionally slow.

3. Best Gallo SA12 Warzone class

Reminiscent of the fan-favorite SPAS-12 from the original Black Ops, the Gallo SA12 packs a punch in all indoor situations.

  • Muzzle: Agency Choke
  • Barrel: 21.4″ Reinforced Heavy
  • Laser: SWAT 5mW Laser Sight
  • Stock: Wire Stock
  • Ammunition: STANAG 12 Rnd Tube

This Gallo SA12 class is especially suited for solos, as it’ll take out an individual player in only a couple of shots. With attachments to improve its speed and range, it’s the perfect weapon to equip for pushing enemies inside buildings.

2. Best R9-0 Warzone class

If you’ve been playing Warzone for a while, you’ll remember how the Dragon’s Breath R9-0 dominated all close-range fights.

  • Muzzle: Choke
  • Barrel: FORGE TAC Sentry
  • Laser: 5mW Laser
  • Ammunition: Dragon’s Breath Rounds
  • Rear Grip: Stippled Grip Tape

With Dragons Breath Rounds equipped, every player should fear the ‘doof doof’ sounds this weapon makes. Two shots from the R9-0 will down a fully armored player, and another couple will instantly finish them.

While it’s not as popular as it once was, this R9-0 build will still dominate close-range engagements.

1. Best Origin 12 Warzone class

If you want a Shotgun with an insanely fast fire rate and the damage to back it up, the Origin 12 is the weapon for you.

  • Muzzle: Choke
  • Barrel: FORGE TAC Impaler
  • Laser: 5mW Laser
  • Ammunition: No Stock
  • Rear Grip: 25 Round Drum Mags

This semi-automatic Shotgun loadout is built to output relentless damage, barely giving your targets time to react. We’ve added a Choke instead of a silencer, but when you’re up in an enemy’s face with the Origin 12, it’ll be too late for the mini-map to help them.


Give any of these Shotguns a try in Warzone Season 2, and you’ll be unstoppable while fighting up close and personal.
