Lockwood 300 best Loadout for Warzone 2.0

Season 4 saw shotguns like the Lockwood 300 rise in popularity after a class-wide buff. They now offer a viable option up close being able to outgun SMGs when used right. But you’ll need a top-tier Lockwood 300 loadout to get the most out of it in Warzone 2, and we’ve got you covered.

The Season 4 update saw the Lockwood 300 receive a wide range of buffs. These increased most of its damage multipliers, improved its handling, and made it much more consistent.

It’s still a situational weapon as it can only chamber two rounds at once, but those two shots are now far more likely to down someone. This makes the Lockwood surprisingly useful in Solos and Duos where you can afford to be reloading regularly after securing a kill.

To make it consistent though you’ll need to use a very specific setup. This is our best Lockwood 300 loadout to use in Warzone 2.


Best Lockwood 300 Warzone 2 loadout attachments

  • Muzzle: Bryson Series XII Choke (+0.06, +0.30)
  • Barrel: Matuzek 812 Barrel (+0.15, -0.09)
  • Laser: Accu-shot 5mW Laser (-0.42, -51.00)
  • Stock: Heist Stock Mod
  • Guard: Buck-Pro (+0.20, +0.07)

As with most shotgun builds it’s best to pick attachments that improve Damage Range and tighten up Pellet Spread. These two stats are the most important when determining how consistently a shotgun is able to deal damage and secure kills.

For the Lockwood 300, this means you’ll want to use the Bryson Series XII Choke muzzle and Matuzek 812 barrel. This combination is the best available as it maximizes the 300’s Damage Range while keeping its pellet spread as tight as possible.

The downside to using these attachments is that they slow the Lockwood 300 down considerably. To offset that we recommend equipping the Accu-shot 5mW Laser and Heist Stock Mod which provide an incredible boost to both Sprint to Fire Speed and Aim Down Sights Speed.

The final attachment slot is far less important than the others. The Buck-Pro Guard provides a fair boost to weapon handling but isn’t too impactful. You may prefer to use an optic instead to make aiming easier or even the FSS Sharkfin 90 underbarrel to increase Aiming Idle Stability.

Best Lockwood 300 Warzone 2 class: Perks & equipment

  • Base Perk 1: Double Time
  • Base Perk 2: Overkill
  • Bonus Perk: Fast Hands
  • Ultimate Perk: High Alert
  • Lethal: Frag Grenade
  • Tactical Equipment: Stun Grenade

When using a close-range weapon like the Lockwood 300, running Double Time makes a lot of sense. It doubles your Tactical Sprint duration making it easier to get up close and personal to enemies before they realize you’re nearby.

Overkill is a fantastic Base Perk on any shotgun as it lets you take a secondary weapon to cover the obvious weaknesses. Something well-rounded like an assault rifle is probably best to partner with the Lockwood 300.

The Bonus Perk is Fast Hands, which is an absolute must-use with the Lockwood 300. You’ll be constantly reloading with this weapon due to its very nature so shortening those reloads is extremely important. We also recommend High Alert to avoid getting caught in dangerous positioning when running in the open.

When choosing your Lethal and Tactical, it’s a primarily personal choice. However, we recommend using Frag Grenades and Stun Grenades for that high damage and the ability to confuse an enemy before you rush their location.

How to unlock the Lockwood 300 in Warzone 2

Best Lockwood 300 alternatives in Warzone 2

The obvious alternative and by far the most popular shotgun in Warzone 2 is the KV Broadside. It offers a fast fire rate like the Lockwood 300 but has a far larger magazine making it much more forgiving.

If you’re looking for something a little different while keeping a similar playstyle, consider giving the ISO 45 a chance. This SMG can be run with a semi-auto 12 Round Mag giving it that same high damage, constant reload feel of the Lockwood.
