The KV Broadside made its way to Warzone 2 as a semi-auto Shotgun. It has the speed and power to destroy targets up close on Al Mazrah or the new Ashika Island.

When it comes to mobility, the VLK Stockless will drastically enhance ADS speed, sprint-to-fire speed, and movement speed. Meanwhile, the 12 Gauge Dragon’s Breath ammunition will boost the Shotgun’s power so you’ll be able to down players incredibly quickly.

The Dashbolt 60 will increase the weapon’s fire rate so you can fire off shots in quick succession. When it comes to the barrel, the Gunner D20 is a must-use attachment. It provides a notable boost in damage range, bullet velocity, hip fire accuracy, and recoil control.

Best Warzone 2 KV Broadside loadout Perks & Equipment

  • Base Perk 1: Double Time
  • Base Perk 2: Overkill
  • Bonus Perk: Fast Hands
  • Ultimate Perk: Ghost
  • Tactical: Flash Grenade
  • Lethal: Semtex

Warzone 2 Season 2 has finally done away with restricting players to preset Perk Packages. For the first time in Warzone 2, players can finally choose their own combination of four Perks.

Considering the low cost of Primary weapons at Warzone 2 Buy Stations, utilizing a Shotgun Loadout doesn’t necessarily mean having to equip Overkill. Feel free to swap Overkill for Bomb Squad, but we’ve gone with Double Time and Overkill to pair the Shotgun with a long-range weapon like the RPK.

Fast Hands will have you reloading quickly and swapping weapons faster, which is vital since our recommended loadout utilizes Overkill. Ghost will primarily keep you protected from enemy UAVs, which further counters the Killstreak along with the new Counter UAVs.

The Flash Grenade and Semtex combination remains one of the best in Warzone 2, as it disorients and dishes out extra damage to enemies.

Best KV Broadside alternatives in Warzone 2

Previously, we judged the Bryson 800 as the best Shotgun option in Warzone 2, but there was very little to separate it from the other three options. With the KV Broadside offering something unique, it could rise to the top in Season 2.

Using an SMG in close quarters is another highly recommended strategy for those who aren’t fans of Shotguns. The Lachmann Sub is looking to dominate after a nerf to the powerful Fennec 45.
