In the first loadout of Lockwood 300, I will be focusing on factors that will affect its close-range abilities. Keep in mind that you are looking to extend the shotgun’s effective range and increase the pellet spread.

In this way, I can also increase the maximum damage of the shotgun while extending the range of the weapon Itself. 

Choosing the attachments, I have mentioned below will allow you to make the shotgun a viable option for mid-range as well while keeping the damage rate of the Lockwood 300 intact. 

Following are the details of the loadout:

  •  Laser: Point-G3P 04.
  •  Muzzle: Bryson Series XII Choke.
  •  Stock: Heist Stock Mod.
  •  Under Barrel: Agent Grip Or FSS Sharkfin 90.
  •  Barrel: Matuzek 812 Barrel.
  • One-Shot kill capability.
  • Improved Hip Fire Accuracy.
  • Reduced Hip fire bullet spread.
  • Vertical Recoil Control.
  • Aim Down Sight Speed.
  • Limited Ammo.

For this particular loadout, I will be focusing more on the damage output of the Lockwood 300 and increasing it. Moreover, I will also use attachments to buff up the recoil control offered by the shotgun and make it the deadliest weapon in close quarters.

My Tip: Remember that handling Lockwood 300 is not easy, which is where my attachment picks for the gun come in. The loadout makes it way easier to handle the Lockwood 300.

Best Perks And Equipment For The Loadout

Next, I will discuss the best class setup for Lockwood 300 in Modern Warfare 2. The features you will be focusing on will contribute to the shotgun’s mobility and handling capability.

Following are the perks and equipment I use:

  •  Base Perk 1: Overkill.
  •  Base Perk 2: Double Time.
  •  Bonus Perk: Fast Hands.
  •  Ultimate Perk: Quick Fix.
  •  Tactical Equipment: C4.
  •  Lethal Equipment: Flash Grenade.

Best Secondary Weapon For The Loadout 

The limitations that come with a shotgun might be fatal in case of certain combat situations. Therefore, it is important to have a powerful secondary weapon equipped at all times.

  • You will also need a weapon that can perform at a longer range where your shotgun is basically useless.
  • In my opinion, you should go for SMG Or Assault Rifles that can perform well in mid to close range.
  • A good SMG to use is FSS Hurricane which can be a good close-range alternative to Lockwood 300.
  • You can also go for the M4 assault rifle to give you a higher DPS in the mid-range.
