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.

The list of issues in Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0 is lengthy, and now a new problem has begun making the rounds. Numerous players have complained of getting shadowbanned in error, forcing them into lobbies full of cheaters.

Shadowbans are different from regular bans in that your account isn't actually removed from the game. Instead, a shadowbanned account is placed into lobbies with other players suspected of cheating, making it difficult to enjoy the game. Since Warzone 2.0 is free-to-play, it's easy for a user to simply create a new account to continue cheating, which is why Activision has implemented the shadowban solution while players are investigated.
