We’ll start off this Warzone loadout with the M97 Full Choke muzzle to reduce the Double Barrel Shotgun’s pellet spread, focusing its damage. The LJ-18 Defender Barrel will boost both hipfire damage and damage range.

We’ve chosen to go with the Removed Stock as it complements the hipfire and movement buffs. The G16 2.5x Optic improves your overall accuracy and you can use Incendiary Ammo Type to apply fire damage over time.

The Pine Tar Rear Grip will improve hipfire accuracy and will perfectly complement the Akimbo Perk that lets you dual-wield shotguns. Finally, Quick will boost your sprint speed.

Choosing the Akimbo Perk means that the underbarrel will be disabled, and we decided to stick with the default option for magazines in this Double Barrel Shotgun loadout.

You’ll want to pair this weapon up with a faster primary option, and choosing Overkill will help sort that out. Lastly, we’ll equip the Amped Perk that lets you swap between your weapons much quicker.

Lastly, when deciding your Lethal and Tactical picks, you can stick with a Frag Grenade along with Stims. The former lets you deal a ton of damage to multiple opponents and the latter gives a major speed boost.

Popping a Stim at the right time can give an enormous speed boost as you leap towards an enemy team. There’ll be no stopping you if you can time the buff perfectly.
