So, in this Call of Duty (COD) Warzone 2.0 guide, players can find the best class setup and loadout build for their Bryson 890 shotgun!

Bryson 890 Versatile Loadout

The first loadout of choice for the Bryson 890 focuses on versatility. This will allow players to engage at different ranges with their shotgun without having to compromise too much.


The Bryson 890 provides players with the option of equipping up to five modifications. These include attachments such as muzzles, laser sights, optics, rear grips, and more.

For my setup, I have chosen these as the best attachment combination:

  • Barrel: 21.5″ Bryson Tacfire
  • Muzzle: XTEN Modified Choke
  • Stock: Stockless Pistol Grip
  • Underbarrel: VX Pineapple
  • Laser: Point-G3P 04

This loadout focuses on improving the ranged capabilities of the Bryson 890 through greater damage at range, higher bullet velocity, and a tighter pellet spread. At modest distances, the Bryson helped me to take players down within two to three well-aimed shots. This makes it a solid contender even for SMG-wielding enemies.

Below is a summary of the pros and cons that this loadout brings.

  • Hip Recoil Control +3
  • Damage Range +2
  • Tighten Pellet Spread +2
  • Hip Fire Accuracy +2
  • Sprint to Fire Speed +2
  • Gun Kick Control +1
  • Bullet Velocity +1
  • Aim Down Sight Speed -2
  • Hip Walking Speed -1
  • Recoil Steadiness -1
  • Aiming Recoil Control -1
  • Aiming Stability -1
  • Flinch Resistance -1

Perk Package

Unlike the perk system of Modern Warfare 2, Warzone 2.0 does not allow custom perk setups at the time of writing. Instead, the game uses preset Perk Packages, each of which focuses on a specific playstyle.

For the best Bryson 890 shotgun loadout build and class setup in Call of Duty (COD): Warzone 2.0, I decided to go with Vanguard. It has the following perks:

  • Base Perk 1: Double Time
  • Base Perk 2: Bomb Squad
  • Bonus Perk: Resupply
  • Ultimate Perk: High Alert

Secondary Weapon & Equipment

The equipment players use alongside their Bryson 890 should complement their playstyle and let them adapt to different situations should the need arise.

Here are my selections for the best class setup to go with when it comes to equipment.

  • Secondary: X13 Auto
  • Tactical: Stun Grenade
  • Lethal: Frag Grenade

Bryson 890 Aggressive Loadout 

The second loadout I have for the Bryson 890 builds on the shotgun’s preexisting strengths of close-ranged dominance. It allows players to get up close and personal with their opponents before ripping them to shreds with devastating shots.


For the best Aggressive Playstyle loadout build and class setup for the Bryson 890 shotgun in Call of Duty (COD): Warzone 2.0, these are the attachments I recommend:

  • Guard: Demo Dropzone Pump
  • Barrel: 18” Demo Firewall
  • Laser: VLK LZR 7MW
  • Stock: XTEN Ripcord Stock
  • Underbarrel: TV Wrecker Grip

The standout feature of this loadout is the massive improvement in aiming down the sights’ speed. This means that players will be able to aim in and lock onto targets rapidly.

Doing so not only makes targets easier to track but also provides players with the benefits that aiming down sights brings, such as improved accuracy and reduced recoil. This will prove useful when pushing in and engaging multiple opponents in quick succession.

Below is a summary of the pros and cons that this loadout brings.

  • Aim Down Sight Speed +3
  • Sprint Speed +2
  • Movement Speed +1
  • Aim Walking Speed +1
  • Aim Walking Steadiness +1
  • Wider Pellet Spread +1
  • Sprint to Fire Speed +1
  • Recoil Control -2
  • Recoil Steadiness -1
  • Bullet Velocity -1
  • Damage Range -1
  • Flinch Resistance -1
  • Laser Visible in ADS

Perk Package

I went with the Weapon Specialist Perk Package for this loadout since it is better suited to using multiple weapons and gives good advantages in terms of information gathering and equipment usage.

  • Base Perk 1: Overkill
  • Base Perk 2: Strong Arm
  • Bonus Perk: Spotter
  • Ultimate Perk: Survivor

Secondary Weapon & Equipment

Similar to the equipment selection for the previous loadout, the equipment I have chosen for the Aggressive Playstyle loadout also complements the playstyle by giving players options to engage at a distance while also giving them utility to close the gap when required. This is what makes it one of the best Bryson 890 shotgun loadouts builds and class setups in Call of Duty (COD): Warzone 2.0.

  • Secondary: Kastov 762
  • Tactical: Smoke Grenade
  • Lethal: Frag Grenade
