Modern Warfare’s JAK-12 Shotgun has always been a powerful choice in Call of Duty: Warzone, especially after Season 2 Reloaded”s TTK changes. Here’s the best JAK-12 loadout you can run in both Caldera and Rebirth Island.

Warzone Pacific Season 2 Reloaded made significant changes to TTK in Caldera, giving players an extra 50 HP. This has allowed the already powerful JAK-12 Shotgun to shine, where it’s become the fastest-killing close-range weapon in the game.

You’ll need to equip the right attachments, Perks, and Equipment to run the best JAK-12 loadout, so here’s everything you need to dominate with this fully-automatic Shotgun.

Best Warzone JAK-12 loadout attachments

Best JAK-12 loadout for Warzone
  • Muzzle: FORGE TAC Marauder
  • Barrel: ZLR J-3600 Torrent
  • Laser: 5mW Laser
  • Magazine: 20 Round Drum Mags
  • Rear Grip: Stippled Grip Tape

There are plenty of viable attachments for the JAK-12, but we’ve used this combination to give it the quickest TTK possible, increasing its mobility and giving a much tighter bullet spread.

First, we’re combining the FORGE TAC Marauder muzzle and ZLR J-3600 Torrent barrel, which, together, tighten the bullet spread and increase both its damage and range. This will ensure every pellet lands, allowing the JAK to deal maximum damage.

Next, we’ve added both the 5mW Laser and Stippled Grip Tape. Combined, the JAK-12 will have an incredibly fast sprint-to-fire speed, and fantastic hip-fire accuracy. Finally, the 20 Round Drum Mags will put plenty of shells at your disposal and give a reasonable reload speed.

Best Perks & Equipment to use with Warzone JAK-12

EOD Perk in Call of Duty Warzone
  • Perk 1: E.O.D
  • Perk 2: Overkill
  • Perk 3: Amped
  • Lethal Equipment: Semtex
  • Tactical Equipment: Stim

The JAK-12 is an excellent close-range weapon, so you’ll need the right Perks and Equipment to complement it.

E.O.D will protect you from a manner of explosives, allowing you to continue to push in even when Semtex and C4s are being chucked your way.

The JAK-12 loses its power beyond extreme close range, so you’ll want to use Overkill and bring along something like the XM4 or Automaton in your primary slot. Finally, you’ll want Amped to quickly switch between these weapons.

For Lethal Equipment, we recommend the Semtex. It’s a great way to clear a room and force an injured enemy out of cover. For Tactical, the Stim remains one of the best options thanks to the speed boost and quick health regeneration.

How to unlock JAK-12 in Warzone

All you need to do to unlock the JAK-12 is get 3 Hipfire Kills using Shotguns in 7 different matches. And because the JAK-12 is a Modern Warfare weapon, you can back out as soon as you get the three kills.

Modern Warfare is the quickest place to unlock the JAK, but Plunder or Clash are the best places to go if you only have Warzone. Just get your three hip-fire kills, then either play out the game or back out, it’s up to you!
