The Origin-12 shotgun is starting to rise in popularity in Warzone, and Call of Duty YouTuber Jack ‘jackfrags’ Mason revealed a new loadout for the weapon, which can shred through enemies at close range.

Since the launch of Warzone on March 10, shotguns have been completely avoided by most. This is because their overall versatility is poor compared to weapons in other classes, namely SMGs.

However, the Origin 12 shotgun is now making a rise in Warzone. Popular content creator jackfrags has shared a custom loadout build that can compete with some of the top weapons in the game.

Jackfrags’ Origin 12 Warzone loadout

  • Choke
  • FORGE TAC Impaler
  • 5mW Laser
  • No Stock
  • 12 Round Mags

This loadout is designed for quickly dishing out damage in close-range gunfights. The FORGE TAC Impaler barrel and Muzzle Choke will significantly improve damage range, while also tightening the spread of pellets. This allows you to deal massive burst damage up close if you can hit your shots.

Having ‘No Stock’ and a 5mW Laser on the Origin 12 will negate the movement speed nerfs that some of the former attachments come along with. This will allow you to quickly strafe in tight spaces while remaining accurate.

Finally, the 12 Round Mags are a must-have for this semi-auto shotgun and its default high fire rate, as they can help you chain a few kills together without constantly needing to reload.

“I’m not joking but the Origin 12 is my new favorite gun in the game” jackfrags explained in his July 28 video, before revealing his “overpowered” loadout. “This is my build, I think it works great up close.”

The sudden rise of the Origin 12 in recent days even caused some suspicion, with some Warzone players questioning if Infinity Ward had stealth buffed the weapon without them knowing.

However, while this does not seem to be the case, more and more players are starting to equip the shotgun, alongside a long-range weapon, to help clear out areas like Downtown Verdansk.

DeanoBeano, who went viral on Twitch a couple months back for using a drum kit to snipe in Modern Warfare, is back and this time he brought along with him a piano to get his kills.

Back in August 2020, Twitch streamer DeanoBeano made headlines when he was able to get a sniping kill in Modern Warfare using a drum kit. While it was only a single kill, to say that it was impressive would be an understatement considering how much precision it took.

A couple weeks later he was back at it again, this time going on a five killstreak on Vacant, even getting a split quad-feed and a collateral kill in the process. Now, DeanoBeano has once again done what some might considered the impossible and gone on another killstreak using an instrument but this time it wasn’t a drum kit.

Twitch streamer DeanoBeano played Modern Warfare for over five hours using a piano.

During a recent Twitch stream, DeanoBeano used a piano keyboard to get a four killstreak on Atlas Superstore, once again impressing the CoD community.

In the clip, which currently has over 16,000 upvotes on Reddit, Deano takes out three enemies in quick succession near the side of the map using the AX-50 sniper rifle, before running and taking out one more person with the 725 shotgun.

While that wouldn’t be impressive in the slightest with a normal controller, the fact that he was using a piano makes it an amazing feat to be sure.

I just snapped with a piano LMAO from r/modernwarfare

As one can see in the clip itself, movement and aiming with the piano is a bit similar to the drums in that one key press moves the character just a little bit in a certain direction. This means that Deano constantly taps on the keys in order to adjust where he’s looking.

While he’s drumming kills were impressive as they were, this piano streak is even more absurd. Considering you can hear the piano keys he’s hitting, it makes for a very comical clip.

Here’s hoping he makes more hilarious videos with other instruments.
