Best Shotguns in Warzone
There isn’t a huge gap from the top two spots that places Warzone’s Riveter in third place, and in many ways, it’s just as reliable a close-range automatic weapon in Warzone.
This Shotgun melts enemies when equipped with the right attachments. It has great damage and very low recoil, which makes it easy to use. In addition, it has fantastic mobility so you can make your way across any Resurgence map with ease.
2. Lockwood 680
Previously the best Shotgun in Warzone, the Lockwood 680 remains a popular pick within the category due to its excellent mobility and damage output. Contrary to its counterparts, the Lockwood 680 is more of a hip-fire Shotgun weapon. It will allow you to clear buildings with ease and straight-up dominate in close quarters.
1. Haymaker – Best Shotgun in Warzone
Following the introduction of the Season 2 JAK Maglift Kit Aftermarket Part, the Haymaker has become the best Shotgun in Warzone. Similar to MW 2019’s Origin 12, players who love Shotguns are still relying on the Haymaker given its extensive magazine, high damage values, and rapid fire rate.
Those were the best Shotguns to use in Warzone Season 2.
