The best Warzone 2 KV Broadside loadout once dominated Call of Duty's battle royale. Following several hard-hitting nerfs, is the shotgun worth using in Al Mazrah and Ashika Island heading into Season 3 Reloaded?

This particular build provides major improvements to damage, fire rate, and mobility which is perfect for close-range combat.

The lack of stock means you can react quickly to any sudden targets that appear over the course of a match and although there's no increase in ammo capacity, the eight rounds pack a deadly punch that send anyone nearby to the gulag.

Best Warzone 2 KV Broadside attachments

Like the rest of the Warzone 2 arsenal, the KV Broadside comes with a huge variety of attachments capable of transforming the shotgun to suit your style of play perfectly. Here's a set of five perfect for getting up close and personal:

  • Barrel: Range Twelve
  • Stock: VLK Stockless
  • Ammunition: 12 Gauge Dragon's Breath
  • Magazine: 25 Shell Drum
  • Rear Grip: True-TAC Grip

The Range Twelve barrel brings additional damage alongside the 12 Gauge Dragon's Breath rounds that create a fiery inferno that's impossible for your opponents to avoid. For fast reaction times and quick movement speeds, the VLK Stockless stock is an excellent choice while the 25 Shell Drum guarantees you never run out of ammo in the heat of battle.
