When it comes to secondary weapons in Call of Duty: Warzone, the Origin 12 shotgun has been a mainstay. Not many players pay much attention to the secondary slot on their loadout, but having a powerful backup weapon can make all the difference between a win and loss.
In recent seasons, weapons like the dual Diamatti pistols have dominated the secondary slot. However, before that it was the Origin 12 shotgun, which featured an overpowered loadout. Though it’s been nerfed since, it still features a great loadout in Season 2 that will help tremendously with close-range gunfights.
Best Origin 12 loadout in Warzone
Seeing that a shotgun’s biggest asset is its close-range damage, that is what the Origin 12’s recommended loadout focuses on. While players can increase the overall range of the weapon, long-range damage is what the primary weapon is for. With a shotgun, the focus should be on how to eliminate enemies who are 10 or so meters away.
To help with this, the Origin 12’s loadout features damage-boosting attachments. Also in use are attachments that allow the damage to be delivered as quickly and accurately as possible.
- Muzzle: Choke
- Barrel: Forge TAC Impaler
- Body: 5mW Laser
- Ammunition: 12 Round Mags
- Stock: No Stock
The Choke and Forge TAC Impaler on the Origin 12 are the damage-boosting attachments. Both the Choke and Impaler increase damage range, with the former also tightening the pellet spread and the latter increasing muzzle velocity. Both attachments will help eliminate enemies in as efficient a manner as possible.
Furthering that cause is the 5mW Laser, which allows players to hip fire the Origin 12 instead of aiming down sights. However, if aiming down sights is needed, the No Stock attachment greatly increases the sprint-to-fire time for any close-range gunfights.
Finally, the 12 Round Mags simply allow players to take down more than one enemy without having to reload.
