The shotgun class in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 hasn’t received nearly as much attention during the game’s life cycle as other classes. Players have been running around with assault rifles, submachine guns, and snipers more than anything else, which is no surprise. However, since around Season 2, shotguns have had a lot more eyes on them. Currently one of the best shotguns is the Bryson 800, which has a decently strong loadout in MW2.
The Bryson 800 is a pump-action shotgun that can deal one-shot kills if players are at the right distance and if they’re using the right attachments. While the shotgun won’t be able to kill enemies across the map or do anything else overpowered, it’s a solid weapon that can come in handy when faced with a close-range encounter. If players aren’t using the best set of attachments, though, they’ll put themselves at more of a disadvantage.
To see the full loadout for the Bryson 800 in Modern Warfare 2, keep reading below.
Best Bryson 800 loadout in MW2
The Bryson 800 is a well-rounded shotgun, but could use some improvements to its damage range and mobility. An increase in these stats makes it more viable in close range and allows players to compete with a fast-killing SMG or AR.
- Muzzle: Bryson Choke
- Barrel: 21.5″ Bryson Shredder
- Laser: VLK LZR 7mW
- Stock: Sawed-Off Mod
- Underbarrel: FSS Sharkfin 90
The loadout begins with the Bryson Choke and the 21.5″ Bryson Shredder. The former increases damage range and pellet spread while the latter boosts bullet velocity and recoil control. The rest of the loadout aims to improve mobility, with the VLK LZR 7mW increasing sprint-to-fire time and aim down sights speed. The Sawed-Off Mod also gives you extra mobility as well, which makes it so you don’t always have to hipfire.
As a final note, you can use the Bryson 800 in the new Modern Warfare 3 and use this same loadout to great effect. However, you will need to change most of the rest of the class, as the perks have been entirely changed in the new multiplayer title. You can still use the same lethal or tactical as well as a similar secondary weapon. Of course, I suggest using some of the new content first so you can experience some of the fresh items in MW3.
