As part of the new Season 2 update for Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0 and Modern Warfare 2, Activision has added a new shotgun called the KV Broadside. This shotgun is available for free to all players and is actually competitive in terms of the close-range meta. As always, there’s no shortage of ways to build this particular weapon due to all of the different attachment options. With that in mind, which loadouts are the best?

These are the best Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2.0 KV Broadside builds, as well as how to use them.

Recommended loadout:

Barrel Gunner D20
Ammunition 12 Gauge Dragon’s Breath
Magazine 25 Shell Drum
Stock VLK Stockless
Bolt Dashbolt 60

When it comes to the best KV Broadside build for Warzone 2.0, one specific setup is better than the rest. This one can consistently down opponents in two shots, which is absurd and will likely get patched.

Start by using the Gunner D20 Barrel for improved damage range, bullet velocity, hip fire accuracy, and recoil control. This will help you secure more eliminations from afar. Next, you’ll want to use the weapon’s secret sauce, the 12 Gauge Dragon’s Breath Ammunition. This adds incendiary damage to all pellets, helping you secure eliminations more consistently.

Since this build is for Warzone 2.0, we recommend utilizing the 25 Shell Drum Magazine, giving you plenty of rounds to take down multiple foes at once. In addition, the VLK Stockless Stock comes in handy, boosting your aim down sights (ADS) speed, sprint-to-fire speed, overall mobility, and hip recoil control. Finalize the build with the Dashbolt 60 Bolt for an increased fire rate, making it easier to win close-range gunfights.

Recommended loadout:

Muzzle Bryson Improved Choke
Barrel Range Twelve
Laser 7mw Canted Laser
Stock VLK Stockless
Rear Grip True-Tac Grip

As for the Modern Warfare 2 build, you’ll want to focus on maximizing range and sprint-to-fire speeds, without totally ruining your mobility.

Kick things off with the Bryson Improved Choke Muzzle, giving you a tighter pellet spread and increased damage range. Speaking of which, we also recommend the Range Twelve Barrel, for yet another boost to damage range, along with improved hip fire accuracy, and bullet velocity.

Next, we advise using the 7mw Canted Laser, which improves your aiming stability, ADS speed, and sprint-to-fire speed. Follow that up with the VLK Stockless Stock, giving you even faster ADS times, better sprint-to-fire speeds, a movement increase, and improved hip recoil control. Finalize the build with the True-Tac Grip Rear Grip, which improves ADS and sprint-to-fire speed yet again.

Modern Warfare 3 Zombies: tips and tricks for MWZ
A soldier with a Pack-A-Punch weapon fires at zombies from behind cover.

The mega-popular Zombies mode has never undergone as massive of a restructuring as it has for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. What was originally a round-based, co-op survival mode where you and a team of four gradually powered up, expanded the map, and maybe tried to complete a challenging Easter egg story has become something more of a mix of Zombies and the new DMZ mode from last year's entry.

While there will be plenty that is familiar to Zombies veterans, such as Perk-a-Colas and mystery boxes, you won't be able to rely on your old tactics anymore. Surviving the new Zombies mode is a completely new ballgame in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, but these tips and tricks will help you and your squad survive threats both old and new.

Every year when the new Call of Duty title drops, the playing field is once again reset as everyone needs to start grinding back up the ranks. Fully embracing the RPG elements, Modern Warfare 3 once again allows you to earn XP as you play match after match to rank up your character, with each rank not only bringing you closer to hitting prestige but also unlocking new options for your chosen operator. Your player rank is unique from your weapon levels and can take a lot longer to grind if you don't know the most efficient methods. If you want to fast-track your career through the ranks, here are the fastest ways to earn XP in Modern Warfare 3.
How to earn XP fast in Modern Warfare 3
There's basically no way you can play Modern Warfare 3 without earning XP, but some modes and methods can earn you double (or more) what you could if you were just playing without a plan.
Play the objective

We all love playing team deathmatch or any other mode where all you need to worry about is being the one to shoot first. However, if you want to earn that sweet XP fast, you need to choose one of the objective modes like Domination, Hardpoint, Ground War, or even Kill Confirmed. Not only do you get XP for killing enemies, but the amount you get on top of that for playing the objective can make up the bulk of your XP gain. This is especially true if you're not at the top of your game and end up dying more than you kill since you have another method to contribute. Also, objective modes grant you an XP bonus just for finishing the match.
