The recent class-wide buff in Warzone Season 5 has increased the viability of shotguns, and the KV Broadside has emerged as one of the most potent shotguns in the meta.
In Season 5, the damage calculation for shotguns was adjusted making them more consistent. If at least four (out of eight) pellets hit the target, you will reliably be able to get two or three-shot kills.
Our guide will turn players into running and gunning nightmares for the rest of the lobby. The attachments used will improve movement speed, damage range, hip-fire capabilities and fire rate.
The best Warzone Season 6 loadout for the KV Broadside is:
Barrel: Gunner D20
+0.25lb Recoil Steadiness
+0.20in Damage Range
Laser: Point-G3P 04
-0.28oz Hip Walking Speed
+28.50ft (Hip Spread)
Stock: VLK Stockless
Magazine: 12 Shell Mag
Bolt: Dashbolt 60
What Does Each Attachment Do For The KV Broadside in Warzone?
The Gunner D20 barrel enhances your damage range by an impressive 40%, allowing fewer shots to kill at extended distances. The Point-G3P 04 laser significantly boosts your sprint-to-fire speed and hip-fire accuracy, making it an excellent choice.
The VLK Stockless attachment promotes faster movement and better hip-fire recoil control, giving you an edge in close combat scenarios. Extending the magazine size with the 12 Shell Mag is a nice bonus whilst also improving movement speed and weapon handling. However, if you need even more ammunition, you can switch to the 25 Shell Drum to avoid inconvenient mid-fight reloads.
The Dashbolt 60 bolt is crucial for a faster fire rate, allowing players to spam follow-up shots, and improving your TTK (Time To Kill).
The KV Broadside, amplified by these attachments, proves its worth as a dominant shotgun in Warzone Season 6. This loadout optimises its speed, fire rate, and hip-fire accuracy, making it an excellent option for close-quarter engagements.
The KV Broadside is best coupled with an assault rifle for mid to long-range coverage. Check out our choice here.
