If you’re looking to one-shot enemies in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War with a shotgun, there’s an incredible Hauer 77 loadout that will help you dominate your Multiplayer matches in no time. 

Shotguns are back in the secondary slot in Treyarch‘s Black Ops Cold War and players are loving the one-shot potential of the weapons. Currently, there are only two shotguns in-game with those being the Gallo SA12 and Hauer 77.

When comparing the weapons, the Hauer 77 comes out on top for base firepower but the Gallo SA12 has a significantly faster rate of fire. Both have their place in Multiplayer, but when making your choice consider your playstyle and which weapon suits you best.

Here’s how you need to kit out your Hauer 77 shotgun for the most effective multiplayer loadout.

Hauer 77 loadout Attachments

  • Muzzle: Duckbill Choke

This loadout strictly focuses on dominating opponents at medium-close range with the shotgun. The 26.6 Reinforced Barrel increases the Hauer’s damage range and fire rate, allowing players to fire multiple shots extremely quickly. Alongside the SWAT 5mW Laser Sight, the weapon has unbelievably effective hip-fire. The addition of the No Stock attachment increases sprint to fire time by 40%. This allows players to run around the map and pull out their gun with ease when it’s needed.

In terms of choosing a primary weapon, the M16 provides this loadout with a medium to long-range option for players. However, the M16 is replaceable with any other assault rifle you prefer.

The M16 provides players with a long to medium range option.

In terms of perks, the six slots provided by Perk Greed allows this class to shine at close range while remaining undetected by enemies. On top of this, the Hauer struggles with its ammo usage so running Scavenger eliminates this issue. The addition of Flak Jacket and Tactical Mask makes this loadout heavily resistant to enemy equipment and capable of clearing areas quickly.

Finally, the equipment choices are fairly standard but running Stimshot in the tactical slot is a must. After rushing into a room and taking multiple close-quarter gunfights, the Stimshot is ideal in preparing for your next encounter with an enemy.
