Gallo SA12 WarzoneTreyarch/Activision

Black Ops Cold War’s Gallo SA12 is the most popular shotgun in Warzone due to its lethality at close range, but you’ll need a top-tier loadout to get the most out of the weapon.

With such a huge arsenal of weapons to choose from, Warzone players can constantly change up their loadouts if they wish. However, it’s usually best to stick with a meta build if you want to maximize your win rate.

While Vanguard’s deadly Cooper Carbine and hard-hitting Bren are the go-to guns for players looking to compete in medium to long-range gunfights, they lack firepower at close quarters.

That’s why some of the community have been running the fan-favorite Gallo SA12. This Cold War shotgun can one-shot an opponent looking to rush your position, and can easily out-damage any SMG in an enclosed space.

Of course, to get the most out of the weapon you’ll need to run a meta loadout, and luckily, we’ve got you covered.

Best Gallo SA12 Warzone loadout

Gallo SA12 Call of DutyTreyarch/Activision
The Gallo SA12 is the most popular shotgun in Warzone.


  • Muzzle: Agency Choke
  • Barrel: 21.4 Reinforced Heavy
  • Laser: Ember Sighting Point
  • Stock: No Stock
  • Magazine: STANAG 12 Rnd Tube

For starters, you’re going to want to run the Agency Choke in the muzzle slot for sound suppression, vertical recoil control, and most importantly, bullet velocity.

After that, equip the 21.4″ Reinforced Heavy for the increased fire rate and damage range, allowing you to get off an extra shot just in case you don’t one-shot your opponent.

Next, run the Ember Sighting Point so you don’t have to waste any time ADSing, and don’t forget the No Stock attachment for the extra mobility just in case you’re chasing down an enemy.

Finally, make sure to round off the loadout with the STANAG 12 Rnd Tube so you can take out an entire squad without having to reload. This is especially useful when you’re holding down a position and a whole team is aggressively pushing to take you down.

Next, you’ll definitely want to run Overkill with this class as the Gallo SA12 may pack-a-punch at short-range, but you’ll need your favorite AR alongside you for when opponents attempt to take you down from a distance.

We recommend the Cooper Carbine as it’s currently the most popular AR in the game and tears down enemies at long-range.

Finally, finish off the class with a Semtex to clear out enemies from cover and a Stim for a boost of health in the middle of a skirmish.
