Akimbo Top Break loadout terrorizing Ship Haus playlist

A new overpowered Akimbo Top Break setup on par with Vanguard’s pre-patch Shotguns has emerged to dominate the Ship Haus playlist.

It seems this Akimbo Top Break loadout is next up in a list of overpowered weapons, following the recent nerf to Vanguard Shotguns.

Vanguard players were ecstatic to receive the news of a combined Shipment and Das Haus playlist. These two close-quarters maps are undeniably loved by most. Yet, certain weapons are starting to ruin the fun for players. 

We saw a similar incident occur when Shotguns completely ruined the experience of playing the Das Haus 24/7 playlist. Now players have to contend with absurd Akimbo handguns that one-shot kill enemies from a considerable distance.

The handgun coming under fire is none other than the Top Break, otherwise known as the Magnum. With the proper attachments, these handguns turn into miniature Shotguns that eliminate everything in their path. 

Obviously, the Akimbo Top Break handguns are not as dominant on medium to large maps. If you’re playing the Ship Haus playlist, chances are you’ll run into the Top Break. Shipment and Das Haus are the ideal maps to give this loadout a try. 

Akimbo Top Break loadout attachments

Here are the weapon attachments you’ll need to replicate the results of the video above. 

  • Muzzle: M1929 Silencer
  • Barrel: Wilkie W-4 Stub
  • Optic: 1229/Slate 3.25X Custom
  • Trigger Action: Hair Trigger
  • Magazine: .30 Russian Short
  • Ammo Type: M15 Shot Shell
  • Rear Grip: Fabric Grip
  • Proficiency: Akimbo
  • Kit: Quick

Even if you’re not the type of player to exploit overpowered weapons, now is the ideal time to rank up weapons you may not have used yet. With double XP live in Vanguard, you can rank up the Top Break in no time.

Players already predict these handguns will receive the nerf treatment, much like Modern Warfare’s Snake-shot pistol loadout. If they do end up receiving a nerf, they’ll join Sledgehammer’s list alongside Vanguard’s Shotguns.
