In Call of Duty: Warzone, shotguns can have a rather forceful impression upon their targets. From meta builds that shred enemies apart with ease to utility secondary weapons that can fend off an assault long enough for a retreat, the shotgun weapon class has made a mark on Call of Duty: Warzone. Still, there is one underrated shotgun that has such focused firepower and accuracy that it can tear apart an enemy on only two shots.
After Call of Duty: Warzone fully integrated with Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, the Gallo SA12 shotgun was added to the game. This weapon quickly has dominated the shotgun options in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War while simultaneously acting as a powerful secondary choice.
Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War describes the Gallo SA12 as a semi-auto shotgun with reliable damage. It does come with moderate recoil, but the trained player can easily compensate and unload a volley of shots into any unfortunate enemy. As a shotgun, it does have an extremely limited range with damage fall of evident within 10 meters away. Still, the weapon easily does its job as a secondary option in the popular multiplayer shooter environment.
- Barrel – 21.4″ Reinforced Heavy Barrel
- Laser – SWAT 5mw Laser Sight
- Stock – Duster Stock
- Ammunition – STANAG 12 Rnd Tube
- Rear Grip – Field Tape
As a close-combat Call of Duty: Warzone weapon, the Gallo SA12 using this build can optimize its strengths while reinforcing its weaknesses. The 21.4″ Reinforced Heavy Barrel increases the firepower of the shotgun while improving its damage range. By adding the SWAT 5mw Laser, players can ensure more accurate hip firing for impulse situations. By adding the Duster Stock, players can increase their slide speed allowing the shotgun an entry into close-range proximity.
The gun is easily balanced for Call of Duty: Warzone combat situations by adding in the STANAG 12 Rnd Tube, which increases ammo capacity while adding an additional damage increase for a stronger shot. With the Filed Tape read grip, players can ensure that they flinch less, resulting in more directed and controlled assaults.
This is still a secondary weapon, so players should consider pairing it with a long-range rifle. As a shotgun, the Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Gallo SA12 can only survive close-range and sometimes medium range engagements. By pairing it with a medium to long-range weapon, players can have the best of both worlds.
Call of Duty: Warzone is available on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
