Best Lockwood 680 loadout for Modern Warfare 3 Season 4 Reloaded

Lockwood 680 MW3

Modern Warfare 3 is full of great weapons, but none are much better than the Lockwood 680 in close-quarters combat, especially with the best attachments.

So, if you’re looking to pick up this Shotgun and wreak havoc in multiplayer, here are our recommended attachments, Perks, and Equipment in Season 4 Reloaded.

Best MW3 Lockwood 680 loadout attachments

  • Barrel: Bryson Hammerforged Long Barrel
  • Underbarrel: XRX Edge BW-4 Handstop
  • Guard: Matuzek XRAY Skeletonized Guard
  • Bolt: Express Light Bolt
  • Stock: Sawed Off Mod

The Bryson Hammerforged Long Barrel will improve the Shotgun’s bullet velocity, range, movement speed, aim down sight speed, and aiming idle sway.

I found the XRX Edge BW-4 Handstop and the Sawed Off Mod great for further improving mobility, increasing aim walking, aiming down sight, sprint to fire, and movement speeds.

To provide improvements to the rate of fire, the Express Light Bolt is a great choice as it increases the rechambering speed, and the Matuzek XRAY Skeletonized Guard will do the same while also improving movement speed.

Best Perks & Equipment

  • Vest: Infantry
  • Gloves: Quick Grip
  • Boots: Lightweight Boots
  • Gear: EOD Padding
  • Tactical: Battle Rage
  • Lethal: Frag Grenade
  • Field Equipment: Munitions Box

As for Perks, we recommend using the Infantry Vest to improve mobility with increased Tac Sprint duration and refresh time, and Quick Grip so that you can change to and from the Shotgun fast and effectively. The Lightweight Boots will help keep you even more mobile and EOD Padding protects you from enemy explosives and fire.

When it comes to Equipment, we recommend Battle Rage for your Tactical, as this will help you regen health fast and stay in the fight. Then for your Lethal, we recommend a good old Frag Grenade, which many Call of Duty players will know is a strong choice.

We’ve selected the Munitions Box for your Field Equipment to keep you and your teammates stacked on ammo.

How to unlock the Lockwood 680

To unlock the Lockwood 680 in Modern Warfare 3, all you need to do is reach level 4 in the game.

It’s important to mention that upon reaching level 4, you’ll unlock the custom loadout feature, allowing you to attach various upgrades to your weapons.

Best Lockwood 680 alternatives

As the Lockwood 680 is a Shotgun, one of the best alternatives is the Haymaker, a fast-firing Shotgun that also packs a punch. Or, get a hit of nostalgia with the Reclaimer 18, which brings the SPAS-12 back to life.

You could also switch out the Lockwood for a close-range SMG such as the AMR9, as it may take more bullets, but it’ll be just as effective when you’re up close and personal with the enemy.

Give yourself the best chance with this loadout by making sure you can slide cancel for better movement around the map, as well as locking in the best audio settings to hear enemy footsteps.
