Hauer 77 loadout Attachments
- Muzzle: Duckbill Choke
- Barrel: 25.2 Task Force
- Body: SWAT 5mW Laser Sight
- Stock: Shotgun Stock
- Handle: Serpent Wrap
- Perk 1: Tactical Mask + Flak Jacket
- Perk 2: Scavenger + Tracker

This loadout strictly focuses on dominating opponents at close range with the shotgun. The Task Force Barrell increases the Hauer’s damage output at close quarters by 45%. Alongside the SWAT 5mW Laser Sight, the weapon has unbelievably effective hip-fire. The addition of the Shotgun Stock increases sprint to fire time by 15%. 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.
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 combination 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.
Now, all there’s to do is make this Hauer 77 loadout and try it out in Multiplayer for yourself.
