The ever-evolving Warzone meta has received yet another shake-up with the introduction of the Maelstrom Dual Trigger, catapulting the Lockwood 300 shotgun to the top of the meta. By allowing both slugs to be fired simultaneously, this attachment has redefined the shotgun’s capabilities, giving it an obscenely long one-shot kill range, making it a formidable choice for players seeking unrivaled stopping power at close range.
The Lockwood 300’s popularity has skyrocketed after the changes, and it will be hard to find a lobby not completely swamped with people using this game-breaking loadout. Our guide outlines the optimal loadout for players looking to join in on the Lockwood 300’s newfound power to ensure you have the advantage in Warzone Season 1.
What Does Each Attachment Do For The Lockwood 300 in Warzone Season 1?
The Matuzek 812 Barrel is pivotal in extending the shotgun’s effective one-shot kill range. It increases damage range and bullet velocity, tightens bullet spread, and bolsters recoil control, which is vital in ensuring you achieve the critical one-shot kill much more consistently.
Pairing the Heist Stock Mod with the VLK LZR 7MW Laser significantly enhances the Lockwood 300’s mobility and weapon handling. The combination of these two attachments amplifies ADS (Aim Down Sight) speed, movement speed, sprint-to-fire speed, hip-fire accuracy, and aiming stability. This comes with the drawback of reduced recoil control. However, that won’t matter in this build, as we will only need one shot to secure a kill.
The absolute must-have attachment in this build is the Maelstrom Dual Trigger. It alters the Lockwood 300’s firing mechanism by allowing it to fire both slugs simultaneously, drastically increasing your damage output. Although frequent reloads will become a necessity, the sheer destructive force of firing both slugs more than compensates. The Maelstrom Dual Trigger also comes with the added bonus of a faster reload speed, ensuring players remain battle-ready in Warzone.
Lastly, the 12 Gauge Slug Ammunition further extends the Lockwood 300’s close-range dominance by dramatically increasing damage and range. This ammunition type pushes the boundaries of what’s possible for shotguns, presenting an absolutely broken mix of range and damage.
With the tweaks, the Lockwood 300 has turned Warzone on its head. Seeing it everywhere in matches? That’s because it’s a total beast right now. Grab and rock this shotgun as soon as you can because we’re betting a nerf is just around the corner. Dive into Warzone Season 1 with our top-tier loadout and get the edge over your opponents.
