In Warzone 2, the Bryson 800 shotgun is utterly devastating. It is a very adaptable weapon of choice, thanks to its multiple attachments. Any adversary willing to engage it in close combat is as good as dead. Compared to other shotguns, its close-range hip fire is pretty compact and has a good choke when you aim down sight. Players will need to attach the appropriate kinds of attachments to fully unleash their potential and turn it into a complete weapon.

Our loadout focuses primarily on aggression and crushing your opponent at close range. Most enemies will be one-shot or at the most 2 shots at close range. It can essentially outperform any gun in close combat thanks to its quick movement agility and weapon precision. With these attachments, you will have the Best agile and accurate Bryson 800 Loadout in  COD (Call Of Duty) Warzone 2.0. 


So for the attachments for the aggressive loadout, we will be focusing primarily on mobility and handling. The shotgun does its best work at close range, so you don’t need a lot of attachments to increase its ranged performance at close range. These attachments will help you get close to the enemy without slowing you down. Once you reach the target, just get close and fire, and your opponents will be history. 

we have listed all the attachments you will need for the Bryson 800

  • Muzzle: Bryson Improvised Choke
  • Barrel: 29.5″ Rifled Barrel
  • Underbarrel: VX Pineapple 
  • Stock: Sawed Off Mod
  • Guard: Demo X50 Tactical Pump


First off, we have the Bryson Improvised Choke, which comes with its own benefits. When you put on Bryson Improvised Choke, you get damage range added to your weapon. The range helps you deal more damage at a bit of a distance which will be crucial in fights. Also, it will tighten the spread of the pellets of your shots. Both of these benefits allow you to deal extra damage more precisely. You will lose a bit of recoil and ADS speed, but that won’t matter as you will be mostly using hipfire. 

Tuning For the Muzzle 

For the tuning, you should go with the tighter pellet spread and increase it all the way to +0.13 in. That way, you get more accurate shots that deal more damage at a range. Speaking of range, you should also go with the Damage range so that you can shoot at further distances and don’t have to get too close to the enemy. Tune the Damage Range to +0.30 for the best results. 


The best barrel for the Aggressive Loadout is going to the 29.5″ Rifled Barrel. Looking at all the Pros, it provides you make it the obvious choice for the Barrel. It adds to the Buffs provided by the Muzzle and improves on them. It gives you the same Damage Range, and a Tighter bullet spread along with increased bullet velocity. Making your shots faster and slimmer down the enemy’s chance of escape. 

Tuning For the Barrel

So for the barrel, you will need to go with the Aim Walking Speed for the tuning section. Tune it all the way up to -0.50 lb. Since you will kill most of the enemies in two shots, you will be close. You don’t need recoil control. For the Second tuning, we will be going with the Damage range, as that’s going to help a lot in fights. You can turn the up to +0.40. 


The Best Possible underbarrel for the Bryson 800 Loadout in COD Warzone 2.0 is the VX Pineapple. Simpler to the Barrel, it has a lot of benefits and not a lot of drawbacks. So there is no reason not to be running. You gain increased Hipfire accuracy and recoil control. Allowing you to hipfire more effortlessly. However, that’s not all. The grip makes your gun steadier while walking and allows you to aim better when moving. 

Tuning For the Underbarrel

To get the most out of the Underbarrel, we will be tuning it to increase our Hipfire as much as we. So for the first tune, turn the Hipfire Accuracy all the way up to +0.40in, and for the second, Tune the Hipfire Control to +0.80z. With these tunings, you will not need to aim at close ranges at all and can just blast through the enemy team. 


Fourthly we have the Sawed-off Mod for our stock.  The Stock, like most attachments for the Bryson, has a long list of Pros as well as Cons. However, the Pros outweigh the cons just by a bit, and the Cons are counter by the other attachments of the weapon. The Stock is basically there to increase your mobility to the max with the Bryson. Allowing you to run rampant and destroy your enemies. There is nothing scarier than a fast-moving player running toward you with a shotgun.


Last but not least, we have the Demo X50 Tactical Pump for the Guard. The guard makes your gun faster in reloading and fire speed. That allows you to deal more damage quicker. Along with that, you get crouch movement speed and aim down sight speed for when you need to aim at a bit of a distance. Long of these qualities make the Demo X50 the best guard to have for Bryson 800. 

Tuning For the Guard

Since we already have a lot of recoil steadiness and we don’t need much of that, we are going with Aim Walking Steadiness. Tune the Aim Walking Steadiness to +0.20lb so you can be more accurate when walking while aiming. Also, increase the Sprint to fire Speed to -0.22 so that you can shoot faster while rushing enemies. 

Secondary Weapon

Your loadout will initially include the Overkill perk so that you can run two primary weapons. It frees up space, so you can use another excellent weapon that complements the Bryson 800. The FTAC Recon will be that weapon. It is presently the most effective Semi Automatic gun available in the game. It can take out two armored players with only two shots, thanks to its amazing long-range firepower. 

Since the Shotgun falls short at a distance, you will need a second weapon to handle your ranged fights effectively. The FTAC Recon does that task perfectly. It may not have the most bullets or the faster fire rate; however its high damage accurate bullets make it a lethal weapon at range. The enemies’ best bet to defeat the FTAC Recon is to rush you, and they will run right into your shotgun. 

Attachments For the Secondary weapon 

The Bull Rider 16.5 will be our first choice for the barrel because it can reduce recoil. However, it will also increase the precision, bullet velocity, and damage range of your hip fire in addition to your capacity to control recoil. Recoil control will be the most important part of the weapon. Since you have a limited number of bullets, you don’t have much time to readjust or waste bullets. 

The Edge-47 Grip is an under-barrel created to assist accuracy by strengthening the weapon’s stability and recoil stability. When used as a rear grip, the Support CP90 Grip will help increase aiming stability and flinch resistance. These two qualities might be perfect for a Rifle that holds ten bullets. You will need to be as accurate as possible, so you will need all the stability you can get. 

The Support CP90 Grip, however, will cause a minor slowdown in your movement. But it won’t affect you because the weapon isn’t generally used at close quarters. On the other hand, because it is uncomplicated and provides you with a precise, clear aim even while you are shooting, you should pick the Cronen Mini Red Dot as the optic. You could go for a bigger scope, but it’s really of no use if you have good enough aim. 

The .458 Overpressure +P ammunition, last but not least, will cause the victim to flinch more when you strike them. You won’t need to be very accurate with your shot because the enemy will flinch, making it difficult for them to strafe or take cover. Because of the flinch, the enemy might decide to fight rather than flee, so be careful to finish the job as swiftly as you can.


COD Weapon Specialist Perk Warzone 2.0

Who doesn’t enjoy having extra skills at their disposal? The Perks in the game are simply too valuable to ignore because they offer so many advantages. People even start out using only the standard in-game weapons while still calling for a loadout in order to obtain those advantages. You ought to be able to figure out which perk package to choose so that your loadout in COD (Call Of Duty) Warzone 2.0 is the Best Bryson 800 Loadout. However, we are here to help you. 

As of right now, the perks are available in the form of perk bundles. You cannot choose perks for your loadout at random. To receive such bonuses, you must choose one of the game’s pre-built packages. It does have the benefit that Warzone 2.0 now offers a total of four perks in one package. In order to create the greatest Bryson 800 loadout in COD (Call Of Duty) Warzone 2.0, you will select the Weapon Specialist perk package.

Basic Perks 

Given that you’ll require a secondary, it should go without saying that you’ll select the Overkill perk. You can utilize the secondary as a backup while your Bryson 800 handles most circumstances involving close-quarters fighting. You can use the Ftac Recon in the situation to take those long-distance kills that endanger you and your team. Overkill is crucial as running a shotgun solo will be suicide, so you need a long-range weapon. 

The first two benefits you receive in the perk package are Overkill and Strong Arm. Strong Arm is also a great perk to have to improve your equipment usage. You can hurl grenades and other dangerous items farther away if you have the Strong Arm perk. Even longer cook times can be used to prepare grenades before throwing them. You can just hurl back a grenade if an attacker manages to throw one directly at you because doing so resets the timer. 

Bonus Perk 

The Spotter Perk is perhaps the most ingenious small perk you can use in Warzone 2.0. Because most players simply don’t know how to use it correctly, it is pretty underutilized. It actually turns the enemy’s tactical equipment against them by hacking it.

That means that once you are able to hack tactical gear like Claymores and C4s, they will become your own. They will therefore perish if the enemy attempts to walk over them, believing it to be a friendly trap. 

Ultimate Perk

The Survivor Perk is the ultimate Perk offered in the package. The Survivor Perk is more of a team perk, therefore, using it in a solo queue won’t be very beneficial. However, it will be really useful while playing with teammates or queuing with friends. You can get revived more quickly thanks to this perk, and it also pings the attacker who knocked you down. Giving you a better chance of surviving and a disadvantage to the adversary.


With the help of your deadly and tactical gear, you will be able to push enemies back and easily overpower them.  Combining your equipment is a deadly mix that can even turn around the hardest battles in your favor. These are the deadly and tactical weapons you should employ.

When playing aggressively, the flash and the stun are both great tactical options. You can use them to blind or stun the movement of the enemy rendering them defenseless to your attacks. They are great for clearing out rooms when an enemy is camped. You can also use them to run away and heal if you are in low health. 

With good reason, the Semtex is now the most lethal weapon in the game. It’s a great explosive that sticks to things and does decent splash damage. You can stick enemies with it, and they will die or at least get knocked. Everyone around them also receives damage, so you can kill one guy and damage the whole squad around him. 

Field Upgrade

Though you are unable to equip the Field Upgrade in the loadout, you can pick it up in the game. You should go for Dead Silence since it’s going to be the most useful and effective with your loadout. The enemies won’t hear you coming, and before they know it, you’ll be behind them. You use the Feild upgrade with your equipment, such as your tactical, to make an even deadlier combo. 

Bryson 800 Ranged Loadout

Seeing as Warzone 2.0 is primarily a battle royale and will run into enemies at a bit of a distance you need the Maximum range possible on your weapons. The ranged long out will revolve around increasing your damage and range to the maximum amount possible. That way you will have a chance to deal damage to your enemies at a distance.

You will have to sacrifice a bit of your handling but that should be that much of a problem. You still will be able to fire enemies and also have Quick ADS speed to aim and fire a perfect shot. The bullet spread will be as tight as possible, allowing your shot to fly further across the air. Overall the Range loadout will be the most practical in the game. Here is the best range Loadout for the Bryson 800 in COD (Call of Duty) Warzone 2.0.


The attachments to any weapon are the most important element in making the weapon the best it possibly can be. In the long-ranged loadout, we will send you the right attachments that will accomplish our goal of making the Bryson 800 as long-ranged as possible. The most important elements of the gun are going to be the range and the damage, so that’s what our attachments will focus on increasing.

Here are all the attachments for the Bryson 800 Ranged Loadout

  • Muzzle: SA Schweigen DX
  • Barrel: 29.5″ Rifled Barrel
  • Optic: XTEN Angel-40
  • Ammunition: 12 Gauge Explosive 
  • Guard: Demo X50 Tactical Pump


For the ranged Loadout, the muzzle is going to be the SA Schweigen DX, and it is the best fit for the job. The muzzle will provide us with a bunch of things to start us off. We will gain an increase in all the important stuff, such as the Damage range, Bullet velocity, and Recoil smoothness. Since we will be firing multiple shots at a range, we need recoil smoothness. We lose a bit of ADS Speed, but that won’t matter in a ranged fight. 

Tuning for Muzzle

To counter that bit of the ADS speed we lost, we will go into tunings and try to get some of it back. Turn the ADS speed all the way up to -1.40oz. That should give you enough ADS to not be at much of a disadvantage at close range. The second tuning will be for Bullet Velocity, and we will turn the up to +1.00. That will make our shots travel fast, allowing us to be more accurate. 


The 29.5″ Rifled Barrel is the ideal barrel for the Ranged Loadout as well. When you consider all the benefits it offers, it becomes clear that it is the best option for any build of the Bryson 800. It enhances and supplements the Buffs the muzzle offers. You get a tighter bullet spread, the same damage range, and faster bullets, thanks to this. Increasing the speed of your shots will decrease the enemy’s ability to flee.

Tuning For Barrel

For the tuning in the ranged Loadout, we will have to go for the recoil steadiness as at range, and we will have to fire more shots and can’t have our gun jumping around too much. Set the Recoil steadiness to +0.50lb. For the maximum decrease in recoil.  The second setting will be the same as the first Loadout. Increase the Damage range to +0.40in as that’s what we need most in the Ranged Loadout. 


The third attachment is more of a controversial one, as most people do not consider using optics on a shotgun. But the benefits provided by the optic can not be overlooked. We will be going with the XTEN Angel-40 for the optic. That will tell us the distance at which our target is so that we can know exactly how much damage we will do considering the range. It also adds to the precision of our shot, allowing us to be more Precise. 

Tuning For Optic

For the Optic, we will only be changing one setting in the tuning cause the other is pretty balanced. Just turn the ADS speed all the way up to -3.00oz. With the extra ADS speed, we will be faster and will get the first shot in more quickly. That first shot can be the deciding factor between winning a fight and death.


The Ammunition will be a big surprise for your enemies and will also give you a huge advantage in the fight. You will be using the 12 Gauge Explosive Ammunition. You might wonder what they mean by explosive cause the ammo can’t really explode. However, you will be pleasantly surprised to learn that the ammo we literally explode on contact and will deal lethal amounts of damage. That is going to really help when you are shooting from afar. 

Tuning For Ammunition

To make the Ammunition even more lethal than it already is you can tune it. You can tune the Damage range to +0.70 g and the Bullet Velocity to  +9.00gr. Both of these Tunings will complement each other and will increase the range and speed of your shot. Giving you that extra boost you need to win fights more easily. 


Lastly, we have the same guard as before since the Best Guard for the Bryson 800 Loadouts in COD (Call Of Duty) Warzone 2.0 is the Demo X50 Tactical Pump. The guard increases the speed of reloading and firing your gun. You can inflict more harm more quickly as a result. Additionally, when you need to aim at a distance, you also gain crouch movement speed and aim down-sight speed. The Demo X50 is the ideal Guard for the Bryson 800 because of all these characteristics.

Secondary Weapon 

COD Kastov-762 Warzone 2.0

The best secondary for the ranged loadout is going to be one of the best ARs in Warzone 2.0, the Kastov 762. The Kastov 762 is a lethal weapon at long range and dominates the mid to long-range arena. You can easily drill your enemies from afar. Moreover, the headshot damage of this weapon is not to be taken lightly. 2 to 3 headshots can easily kill a player with the Kastov 762. 

With the right attachment, we can make the perfect long-range Kastov 762. However, to achieve our goal, we will have to sacrifice a bit of ADS speed and Handling, but those things don’t matter in Long range battles. You will still dominate the Long ranged fights but will be a bit slower at close range. Luckily you have the Bryson 800 to take care of that. 

Attachments For The Secondary 

You are going to use the KAS-10 584MM starting with the barrel. The optimal attachment for the loadout you want to use is the KAS-10. The barrel extends the weapon’s active range by boosting the damage radius and bullet velocity. Because of that, the Kastov-762 is a true beast in long-range combat and may even deceive the player into believing you are hacking. I really hope you’re not.

The ZLR Talon 5 should be your go-to muzzle since it can produce a sound that is so subdued your enemies will not be able to figure out your location. It will also dramatically boosts the Damage and Range, which is another huge bonus. The ZLR is going to be the best option for the Kastov 762 since it makes is optimal at long range. 

Since you will be using the gun at long range, you need a good far-sight scope to complement that. The best Optic for the job will be the VLK 4.0 to provide you with that extra zoom required to beam your enemies from a safe distance. With the sound suppression of the muzzle and zoom of the scope, the enemies won’t have any idea what hit them.  

One of the most important attachments for the Kastov 762 will be the FTAC Ripper 56 underbarrel. The Underbarrel will be the most essential element to turn your weapon into a killing machine. It provides the much-needed Recoil and also Aiming Stability. These are two of the most important element in a long-range fight. You will use both of these to easily track your targets in a fight. 

For the final attachment, we have the Magazine for which we will be using the 40-round mag. It’s no surprise that you will be missing quite a few shots in the long-range fights, so you need as many bullets as you can get. Increasing the Magazine size increases the amount of damage you can do in one go. 

Perk Package 

COD Weapon Specialist Perk Warzone 2.0

Since we need to be running both primary weapons to make the loadout as efficient as possible, we are going to need the overkill perk. However, that is only available in one Perk Package, so you will be reusing the Perk Pack from the first Loadout. 

Basic Perks

As previously mentioned, the basic perks are going to be the Overkill and Strong Arm. Both of these are useful in long-range battles. Allowing you to dominate the fields at all distances since you can run 2 Primary weapons and can switch to the best weapon according to the situation. Equipment is built for close-range encounters, but the Strong Arm perk allows you to make use of it at a distance as well. 

Bouns Perk

 Same as before, the Bonus Perk is going to be the Spotter Perk which is one of the most useful perks in the game. The Spotter Perk literally acts like a usable ability, while other perks are small passive buffs. You can hack enemy equipment and use it to your advantage. You can even see enemy traps through walls so that you don’t run into a mine or claymore and perish. 

Ultimate Perk 

The Ultimate perk will be the Survivalist perk which will help you out a lot. The Survivalist perk is one of the best perks you can have in a team fight situation. It allows you to run into the battle as the bait for your team, and if you get down, the enemy is already at a disadvantage. The enemy who downed you will get its exact position revealed, and you can be revived faster. 


The best tactical equipment to run with the Bryson 800 Loadout will be the flash and stun not to give enemies any fighting chance. However, another great Tactical is the smoke grenade. The smoke grenade blocks the enemy’s vision and allows you easily get close to them. You can simply run through the smoke to push them, and if they enter the smoke with you, they are as good as dead. 

The semtex of Molotov will also be great as lethal equipment since it blocks the enemies from running away. Simply throw the lethal between the enemy, forcing them to engage with you and move towards you. In close quarters such as rooms and corners, just throw the equipment and get out your shotgun. If the enemy tries to escape, you can pick them off. Otherwise, they will die from the Lethal Equipment. 

Why Select The Bryson 800

Currently, there are only 4 shotguns in the game, but the one with the highest damage and range is the Bryson 800.  Its long range and explosive damage allow it to be run in a number of ways in the game. You can run it with an LMG, AR, or even a Semi-auto rifle. Bryson 800 is almost impossible to beat at close range.

If you land a shot on your target in close quarters, he’s probably dead. There is no beating the Bryson 800 win. It comes to close range. That’s why the Bryson 800 has one of the best Loadouts in COD(Call Of Duty) Warzone 2.0.

You can unlock it relatively early on in the game. The gun doesn’t have a huge learning curve like so of the other guns in the game. It’s your basic everyday shotgun with high damage. With the right attachments, you don’t even have to aim down the sight at close range. Just shoot at your enemies, and the hipfire will take care of the rest for you. You will be seeing it in the meta soon, so you better start working on upgrading and unlocking attachments for it. 

Luckily the Bryson 800 won’t be much of a struggle to unlock at all just play the game and level up, and you can unlock it easily. 

Final Words
