We’ll start with the best Warzone Hauer 77 loadout with the Agency Choke, which will help boost vertical recoil control, bullet velocity, and the effective damage range, giving the Hauer 77 some versatility.

Once again, the Ember Sighting Point will increase the effective damage range and also balance out the 25.2″ Task Force barrel by bumping the hip-fire accuracy back up.

Combined with the Serpent Grip, which allows you to ADS faster, you’ll be able to hit your shots when the target starts to edge more towards medium ranges.

Lastly, to help balance the lack of movement speed and mobility, the No Stock option is great, as it speeds up your sprint to fire time so that you can pull your gun up when U need to while maintaining speed.
