If you’re a Black Ops 4 player then the last weekend of March will be very lucrative for you with the double XP bonus.

Beginning March 29 and running until April 1 at 10 am PT / 1 pm ET players in Black Ops 4 will be rewarded with double XP across multiplayer, Zombies and League Play game modes.

For the Blackout players out there you can also experience double merits over the course of the weekend.

Black Ops 4 has received some sizable updates this month and with the double XP weekend running now is as good a time as any to jump back in if you’ve been taking a break.

Also coinciding with this is the release of special Twitch Prime loot for Black Ops 4 players so now is definitely a good time to be a player.

PS4 players tend to get most new content in Black Ops 4 before the other platforms but this bonus XP event will be running for all three platforms, meaning Xbox One and PC players won’t be missing out on the fun.

Recent changes to Black Ops 4

Black Ops 4 has been receiving a bunch of updates lately.

The latest update on March 27 made various improvements to Blackout and Multiplayer that would please players in some parts of the world with a low Black Ops 4 population.

This update targeted parts of South Africa and South America by opening up additional Blackout playlists on consoles so players would be able to find matches with ore regularity.

PS4 players also got their hands on a new weapon crate that came with a guaranteed weapon that grants 25% bonus XP per kill which would work great during a double XP event.

 Xbox One and PC players will have to wait a little longer before they have access to the crate, meaning they’ll miss out on the bonus XP event.

Treyarch isn’t done releasing updates for Black Ops 4 so look forward for additional events like this in the future.

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.

Best Hauer 77 loadout in Black Ops Cold War

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.
