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.

My recommended loadout focuses primarily on aggression and crushing the opponent at close range. Most enemies will be one-shot or, at the most, 2 shots at close range. 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, I have primarily focused 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. 

I 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
  • One-shot-kill capability
  • Better Mobility
  • Reduced hip-fire bullet spread
  • Poor iron sight

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.

For Secondary weapon, I use the following attachments:

  • Barrel: Bull Rider 16.5
  • Under-barrel: Edge-47 Grip
  • Rear Grip: Support CP90 Grip
  • Optic: Cronen Mini Red Dot
  • Ammunition: .458 Overpressure +P

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 Bryson 800 Loadout in WZ 2 is the best. 

  • Basic Perks: Overkill and Strong Arm
  • BonusPerk: Spotter
  • Ultimate Perk: Survivor


When playing aggressively, the flash and the stun are both great tactical options. I use them to blind or stun the movement of the enemy. 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.

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.

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,

Here are all the attachments I use 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
  • Improved Stability
  • Increased range
  • Better Accuracy and Recoil Control

Secondary Weapon

The secondary that works best for me in the ranged loadout is the Kastov 762. It is a lethal weapon that dominates the mid to long-range arena. It allows me to take the enemies down 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. 

For Kastov 762, I recommend the following attachments:

  • Barrel: KAS-10 584MM
  • Muzzle: ZLR Talon 5
  • Optic: VLK 4.0 
  • Underbarrel: FTAC Ripper 56
  • Magazine: 40-round mag

Perk Package

Since I need to be running both primary weapons to make the loadout as efficient as possible, I use 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: Overkill and Strong Arm
  • Bonus Perk: Spotter
  • Ultimate Perk: Survivor


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 that I often use is the smoke grenade. The smoke grenade blocks the enemy’s vision and allows you to 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. 

My Thoughts On Bryson 800 Loadouts

The Bryson 800 is a master at close range, so I use it only while rushing into compartments and when enemies are in close premises. The weapon lacks in performance with the increase in distance. So, I recommend using the firearm in close-quarter combats only for best results.
