Lockwood 300 is one of the most powerful shotguns in Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 and is capable of dealing beastly damage if built the right way. The double-barrel shotgun can be used on all maps and excels at dealing damage from mid to close range. 

Below are two best loadouts of the Lockwood 300 shotgun in COD Modern Warfare 2, along with the best class setup, perks, and equipment.  

Close Range Lockwood 300 Loadout  

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

In this way, we will be increasing the maximum damage of the shotgun as well while extending the range of the weapon Itself. 

Choosing the attachments, we 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 

Features Of The Loadout 

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

Also, keep in mind that handling Lockwood 300 is not easy, so we have kept that in mind, too, in choosing these attachments. Without further ado, here are the best features of the first loadout build for Lockwood 300 in Modern Warfare 2. 

Muzzle And Barrel 

First, we will be discussing the muzzle and barrel attachments for the shotgun. Undoubtedly, the most important attachments for a shotgun are its muzzle and barrel which make the best loadouts of the Lockwood 300 shotgun in COD Modern Warfare 2

Therefore, we have made sure to choose the best of the best by selecting the Matuzek 812 barrel and Bryson Series XII choke for the muzzle. Both of these attachments serve the most important purpose for the shotgun, and that is to increase its effective range.

Keeping in mind the limited range offered by the shotgun, these two attachments are tested to greatly increase the range at which Lockwood 300 can deal damage without compromising its power. 

Furthermore, both of these attachments will serve to tighten your pellet spread. The feature can be very effective, especially for close range, since it will greatly increase the accuracy of your shotgun. Therefore, you will be able to secure fast kills simply by using these two attachments. 

Grip And Stock 

Next, we are looking to improve the hipfire accuracy of the Lockwood 300. Furthermore, we will also be using attachments to boost the Aim Down Sight Speed of the shotgun.

The goal here is to make Lockwood 300 the perfect weapon to cover maps that are highly compact, like the Farm 18 map and the L Asilo map. Therefore, the grip and stock will focus on the stability of a weapon and maximizing its potential in close quarters.

First of all, we will be looking to decrease our effective kill time by using the Agent Grip attachment that will highly boost the hipfire accuracy of the weapon. However, keep in mind that it comes at a price, and by using the grip, your mobility will be somewhat compromised. 

Next, we have our stock, and for that, we see no better option than a Heist Stock Mod. With the stock, you will be able to increase your mobility greatly.  

Therefore, the walking speed that our grip ate up will be pretty much restored by this stock option. But that is not all, as the stock will also improve your handling stats and make Lockwood 300 an easier weapon to handle in combat. Furthermore, another great feature of this stock is that it increases the hipfire recoil control, contributing to the overall stability of the Lockwood 300. 

Laser 

Lastly, we have our laser, and for that, we will be using the Point- G3P 04. The laser will further boost your hipfire accuracy greatly.

Additionally, you will also see an improvement in your Sprint To Fire speed which is a crucial factor for shotguns like the Lockwood 300 itself. The only downside to the laser is its visibility, making you vulnerable to enemy attacks. 

In case you want to go full stealth mode and opt for an invisible laser, then you can always choose the schlager ULO – 66 laser for your shotgun.  

Best Perks And Equipment For The Loadout

Next, we will be discussing the best class setup for Lockwood 300 in Modern Warfare 2. The features we will be focusing on will contribute to the shotgun’s mobility and handling capability. Following are the perks and equipment we will be using 

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

Base Perks 

For our Base Perks, we will be using the Overkill perk and the Double Time perk. By using the Lockwood 300 shotgun, it is not uncommon to run low on ammo. Therefore, you will need every bullet you can have, especially in close quarters.  

To compensate for the limited ammo offered by the shotgun, the Overkill perk is your best option. Using the perk, you will be able to maneuver a second primary weapon in your arsenal. Now, this is important since even with pistols and handguns, you won’t get much ammo and damage to make up for the limitations of the Lockwood 300.  

You can equip secondary weapons like Assualt Rifles, including M16, to have a broader range. So while your shotgun will cover a close range, your second primary weapon will cover a long range. Ultimately you will be able to cover a broader range without compromising your damage rate. 

Next, we have Double Time as our second perk, and it will help you increase your tactical sprint. With the perk, you will be able to improve your mobility greatly. Moreover, your crouch movement speed will also boost by 30 percent.  

Bonus Perk 

For our Bonus Perk, we have the Fast Hands perk. By using the perk, you will be able to increase your weapon-swapping speed. Since you will have a second weapon equipped that you can use from time to time, you will need the Fast Hands to perk. Switching weapons will become more convenient for you, and if you find yourself in tough combat situations where you will constantly be engaging with the enemy, then the perk can come in very handy. 

Ultimate Perk 

Next, we have our Ultimate Perk, and for that, we will be using Quick Fix. The perk will allow you to restore your health every time you kill an enemy.

Being the shotgunner of your team, you will ensure a lot of kills. Furthermore, since you will be operating at a close range, you can expect a lot of damage to come your way. Therefore the perk will help you restore your health from time to time every time you kill an enemy. A quick fix is a great perk to have, as it basically rewards you for killing enemies. 

Equipment 

For equipment, we will be choosing C4 as our Lethal Equipment. C4 is one of the best explosives in Modern Warfare 2, possessing the splash and damage even more than claymore.

By using it with your shotgun, you will be able to clear some room and make your enemies more vulnerable to your shotgun attacks. On the other hand, for our Tactical Equipment, we will be using the Flash Grenade to blind our enemies. By using the grenade, you will be able to get away in case of ambush attacks or if you are running low on ammo. 

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.

We will also need a weapon that can perform at a longer range where your shotgun is basically useless. You can 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 ranged alternative for Lockwood 300. You can also go for the M4 assault rifle to give you a higher DPS in the mid-range. 

Run & Gun Lockwood 300 Loadout

The second loadout of Lockwood 300 will focus on improving the running and gunning ability of your shotgun while maintaining its damage rate.

Moreover, you will also see a drastic difference in your mobility after using the attachments we have mentioned below.

With the loadout, you will be able to improve your damage range and increase your accuracy as well. Without further ado, let’s take a look at the details of the second loadout for Lockwood 300. 

  •  Under Barrel: VX Pineapple 
  •  Stock: Heist Stock Mod Or Cronen Marshal Stock 
  •  Muzzle: Sakin DB107 Or X10 V.13 Choke 
  •  Laser: STOVL Tac Laser 
  •  Barrel: 71mm Matuzek D50 

Features Of The Loadout 

Now let’s discuss in detail what each attachment brings to your Lockwood 300. 

Stock 

For stock, we have kept two options, and you can either use the Heist Stock Mod for the loadout or the Cronen Marshal Stock.

Talking about the Heist Stock Mod, you will get a drastic improvement in the speed of your weapon and improve its handling. However, this stock will somewhat compromise your aiming stability.

You will also see a decline in your Flinch Resistance, but it is definitely worth it since it allows you to run and gun, which is not common with heavy shotguns like Lockwood 300. You can also go for the Cronen Marshal Stock to increase the shotgun’s damage range.  

Muzzle And Barrel 

Next, we have our Muzzle and Barrel, and for these attachments, we have kept the damage range of Lockwood 300 as our main focus. For the barrel, we will be using the 711 mm Matuzek D50 Barrel.

The reason why we used this barrel is definitely because of its capability to greatly increase the damage range of any weapon it is attached to.

Furthermore, by using the barrel, you will feel a significant improvement in your pellet spread as well, and the barrel will way make it tighter so you can land more accurate shots. Next, we have our muzzle, and for that, we will be using the Sakin DB107. The reason we chose the muscle is definitely because of its suppression ability.  

Laser And Underbarrel 

Next in our attachments, we have the STOVL Tac Laser. We used the laser to improve your accuracy, as with a shotgun, landing perfect shots can be quite difficult.

Furthermore, the laser will dramatically improve the hipfire recoil control as well as contribute to the overall stability of the gun. Therefore, by using the laser, you will be able to make your shotgun a powerful weapon that operates at closer ranges. 

For the great, you’ll be using the VX Pineapple Underbarrel to facilitate the fire accuracy with the increase in range. 

We are sure that with these attachments, you will be able to turn your shotgun into a powerhouse in no time and be able to unlock the golden camouflage for your Lockwood 300 early on in the game. 

Best Perks And Attachment For The Loadout 

The perks we will be using in this loadout will focus on stealth, reload speed, and weapon-swapping speed. Following are the perks we will be using for the loadout. 

  •  Base Perk 1: Scavenger 
  •  Base Perk 2: Tracker 
  •  Bonus Perk: Fast Hands 
  •  Ultimate Perk: Quick Fix Or Ghost 
  •  Lethal Equipment: Semtex 
  •  Tactical Equipment: Stun Grenade 
  •  Field Upgrade: Dead Silence 

Base Perks 

First, we will be discussing our Base Perks, and for that, we have chosen Tracker and Scavenger. With the Scavenger perk, you will be able to keep yourself stocked up with ammo since the perk allows you to collect ammo from dead enemies.

On the other hand, we have the tracker park and which will allow you to track your enemies and get a better situational awareness in order to come up with a strategy to use your shotgun in the best way possible. 

Bonus And Ultimate Perk 

For the Bonus Perk, we will be using the Fast Hands. The reason we chose the Fast Hands Perk is to improve the reloading speed and Weapon Swapping Speed, as you will be on limited ammo and will need to switch to your secondary weapon from time to time.

For the Ultimate Perk, we will be using Quick Fix or Ghost. The quick fix perk will allow you to restore your HP and help you last longer in battles. The best part about the perk is the more enemies you kill, the more HP you will restore. 

You can also use the Ghost perk to help you stay clear of the Radar Scans and UAVs. Therefore, you will be able to keep your stealth up with the Ghost Perk. 

Equipment And Field Upgrade 

For the lethal equipment, we will be using Semtex. Semtex is more powerful than a frag grenade due to its ability to stick to a particular surface instead of rolling away.

It will detonate after a few seconds. It will help you deal accurate damage. For our tactical equipment, we will use stun grenades to stun and blind our enemies so that you can get away and reunite with your teammates in case of an ambush attack. 

For the field of great, we say no option is better than the Dead Silence field upgrade. Using it will help you become completely invisible, as the enemy team won’t be able to see your footsteps. 

Best Secondary Weapon For The Loadout. 

For the best loadouts of the Lockwood 300 shotgun in COD Modern Warfare 2 loadout, we recommend going for the X13 Auto since you will need a better ammo capacity for your secondary weapon.

If the close range is your focus, then you should have an auto gun with a better Ammo Capacity that can deal powerful damage to your enemies in close quarters. Therefore, X13 is a must, especially for the loadout build and class setups we have mentioned above.
