Call of Duty pro Ian ‘Crimsix’ Porter has revealed his settings in Modern Warfare, in a bid to help you refine your configuration. From sensitivity to audio, the Dallas Empire player has covered all the bases.

Getting to grips with a new Call of Duty title is an arduous task that faces all pros year in, year out. Although some players adapt quicker than others, there are steps that can be taken to help make the process much smoother.

Crimsix and co. have been flying the Dallas Empire banner high in the opening weeks of Modern Warfare, after taking top honors in a number of online tournaments.

The Call of Duty veteran has been looking as sharp as ever after getting off to a hot start. Crimsix has shared some valuable pearls of wisdom by showing his best settings in Modern Warfare.

Being the winningest player of all time, it’s probably worth nabbing some helpful hints from the 33-time Call of Duty champion.

Porter covered all elements of the in-game settings on his native platform, PS4. From his controller settings to audio adjustments, Crimsix has honed in his settings and refined his game to suit his needs.

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-gamem 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.

The Hauer 77 is the shotty players unlock first at level 7 and is the weapon we’ll be covering today. Here’s one of the best loadouts for the Hauer 77.

There are multiple great attachment options for the Hauer 77.

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
  • Barrel: 25.2 Task Force
  • Body: SWAT 5mW Laser Sight
  • Stock: Shotgun Stock
  • Handle: Serpent Wrap

Primary Weapon

  • M16


  • Perk 1: Tactical Mask + Flak Jacket
  • Perk 2: Scavenger + Tracker
  • Perk 3: Ninja + Gung-Ho

Wild Card

  • Perk Greed


  • Lethal: Frag Grenade
  • Tactical: Stimshot
  • Field Upgrade: Trophy System

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.

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 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.
