Warzone has a new Shotgun in Season 4 Reloaded, as the Reclaimer 18 has entered the fray. It’s a weapon many will remember as the SPAS-12, and it packs a punch with the right attachments.

For those looking for a hit of nostalgia, here’s the best loadout you can build for the Reclaimer 18 so that you can dominate close-ranged encounters.

Best Warzone Reclaimer 18 attachments

  • Barrel: Discourager 900 Heavy Barrel
  • Muzzle: Bryson Choke
  • Underbarrel: Bruen Bastion Angled Grip
  • Rear Grip: Haste X4 Grip Tape
  • Stock: No Stock

These attachments aim to improve the Reclaimer 18’s range and mobility, as the Discourager 900 Heavy Barrel, Haste XV Grip Tape, and No Stock combine nicely to boost those stats.

I recommend using the Shotgun in Tac-Stance, as this helps greatly with those close-range engagements where you need to be accurate while staying mobile. This makes the Bryson Choke and Bruen Bastion Angled Grip attachments essential, as they will improve hipfire and Tac-Stance spread for the gun.

Best Perks & Equipment

  • Perk 1: Double Time
  • Perk 2: Sleight of Hand
  • Perk 3: Tempered
  • Perk 4: High Alert
  • Lethal Equipment: Throwing Knife
  • Tactical Equipment: Smoke Grenade

The Double Time and Sleight of Hand Perk combination is essential for any close-range loadout, so you’ll want to run those in your Reclaimer 18 class setup.

Next, Tempered is one of my favorite Perks in the game, as it saves so much time when plating up to full health, meaning you have more chance of survival in sticky situations. Lastly, High Alert is a great pick for intel on whether or not the enemy has spotted you.

As for Equipment, because you’ll be up close and personal with enemies, the Throwing Knife is a great choice for finishing off downed enemies quickly, while Smoke Grenades provide cover in open spaces so that you can get within range of the Shotgun.

Best Reclaimer 18 alternatives

The best alternatives include other hard-hitting Shotguns such as the KV Broadside and the Haymaker.

However, SMGs can also get the job done up close, so don’t overlook the Striker, another gun based on an iconic weapon.

This loadout will perform well in close-quarters combat, but to improve your chances, make sure you have the best controller and audio settings possible.
