Best KV Broadside Warzone 2 loadout: Class setup, attachments & perks

KV Broadside Warzone 2Activison

The KV Broadside is a top-tier shotgun in Warzone 2, equipped with devastating firepower. To maximize the gun’s damage, you’ll need a meta KV Broadside WZ2 loadout. Here’s exactly that.

In Warzone 2, LMGs, ARs, and SMGs dominate the meta thanks to their reliable damage output from multiple ranges.

Unfortunately, shotguns rarely make a break into the top spots unless they’re unbelievably overpowered, as the category is quite one-dimensional. Despite this, shotguns still have their place on Al Mazrah as the weapons are extremely powerful at close quarters, making short work of any foes in their path.

One shotgun that’s made a name for itself is the KV Broadside which boasts one of the fastest TTKs in the arsenal and currently has an impressive 2.3% pick rate. While the KV Broadside did get hit with a heavy nerf in the Season 2 Reloaded patch, it’s still a powerhouse pick.

To push this weapon to the limits, you’ll need a meta loadout, and luckily we’ve got you covered.

Following this, use the 12 Gauge Dragon’s Breath ammunition to take the shotgun’s damage to the next level and the 25 Shell Drum so you never run out of ammo in a skirmish.

Finally, round off the loadout with the VLK Stockless for a huge boost in mobility, which ensures you can aggressively push foes and force close-quarter gunfights.
