Modern Warfare 2 guru WhosImmortal has unveiled a shotgun that instantly eliminates foes at close-range, making it the perfect “one-tap” weapon.

For close-quarter engagements in Modern Warfare 2, the majority of players gravitate towards SMGs as they provide the perfect balance of mobility and damage.

Options like the Fennec, Vaznev, and Lachmann Sub are all meta guns that melt foes in an instant, but there is another choice if you’re looking to one-shot opponents.

We’re of course talking about shotguns and according to WhosImmortal there’s one, in particular, that’s well worth testing out in your matches.

Capable of “one-tapping” opponents and wiping them out before they can even react, this is the perfect setup for aggressive players who aren’t afraid of getting into the thick of the action.

With an impressive amount of mobility and more than enough damage, this gun thrives in the hands of a player who is looking to hunt down their foes.

The goal of the loadout above is to one-shot kill opponents by extending the Lockwood’s damage range and utilizing the power of the 12 Guage Slug.

WhosImmortal even acknowledges himself that this is an extremely “annoying” gun to play against, but if you’re looking to rack up kills, it’s an ideal class setup.
