Modern Warfare 2 KV BroadsideActivison

The KV Broadside is a 12 gauge shotgun in Modern Warfare 2 that stands as the fastest-firing semi-auto firearm in its category, but you’ll need a top-tier loadout to maximize its power.

Modern Warfare 2’s Season 2 patch is well underway and the update has introduced a huge amount of new content to the game.

While the Dual Kodachis and the ISO Hemlock AR are brilliant new additions, it’s the KV Broadside that’s getting a lot of attention thanks to the shotgun’s overwhelming firepower.

Although the gun isn’t suited to the mid to long-range gunfights of Warzone 2, it thrives in MW2 multiplayer where close-quarters skirmishes happen frequently.

Despite this, it’s key you run the meta KV Broadside loadout in Modern Warfare 2, or you risk wasting a lot of the weapon’s deadly potential.

  • Muzzle: SA MX-50
  • Laser: Point-G3P 04
  • Underbarrel: Merc Foregrip
  • Magazine: 25 Shell Drum
  • Bolt: Dashbolt 60

For starters, make sure to equip the SA MX-50 muzzle for increased bullet velocity, damage range, and recoil smoothness. Follow this up with the Dashbolt 60, which increases the semi-automatic shotgun’s fire rate, making it even more potent at close-range.

Next, utilize the Merc Foregrip underbarrel to enhance your hip-fire accuracy, control, and overall recoil stabilization. This in combination with Point-G3P 04 laser ensures your hip-fire is top tier, and the laser even adds improved mobility.

Finally, round off the loadout with the 25 Shell Drum to ensure you never run out of ammo and can take out multiple opponents without reloading.

Best KV Broadside Modern Warfare 2 class: Perks & equipment

  • Base Perk 1: Overkill
  • Base Perk 2: Battle Hardened
  • Bonus Perk: Fast Hands
  • Ultimate Perk: High Alert
  • Lethal: Flash Grenade
  • Tactical: Stim

In terms of perks, we suggest running Overkill in the first slot, as having access to a meta mid to long-range weapon is vital. We recommend using the RPK, TAQ-56, or the ISO Hemlock.

Next, make sure to run Battle Hardened so you’re more resistant to tactical and Fast Hands so you can reload quicker, and switch to secondary almost instantly.

Finally, High Alert is top-tier as it ensures you always know when an enemy has you in their sights.
