Best KV Broadside Warzone 2 Loadout

Despite being a new addition to the game, the Broadside has ascended through the rankings incredibly quickly, currently sitting as the second most-used weapon in Warzone 2. That’s because of its ease of use and power up-close; it’s almost guaranteed to outgun SMGs at point-blank range. 

While a Season Two Reloaded nerf is a distinct possibility, for now, players will want to make the most of its power and equip attachments that improve its range, handling and damage. As a result, the best loadout makes the most of the following attachments:

  • Muzzle: XTEN Modified Choke
  • Barrel: Range Twelve 
  • Laser: STOVL Tac Laser
  • Stock: VLK Stockless
  • Ammunition: 12 Gauge Dragon’s Breath 

While the KV Broadside’s ADS isn’t massively improved, players will find that they seldom need to scope in to take down enemies and hip firing is far more effective. The Dragon’s Breath ammo selection will do residual damage to any enemies your bullets haven’t dealt with.

Best KV Broadside Modern Warfare 2 Loadout

In Modern Warfare 2, you’ll want to rock slightly different attachments, albeit some do translate from our recommended battle royale loadout:

  • Muzzle: Bryson Improved Choke
  • Barrel: Range Twelve 
  • Laser: 7MW Canted Laser
  • Stock: VLK Stockless
  • Rear Grip: True TAC Grip

This loadout makes the Broadside slightly more versatile and geared towards faster-paced, respawn gameplay. Specifically, the True TAC Grip makes hitting shots far easier and the Bryson Improved Choke improves the range and gives you a tighter pellet spread – designed for MW2’s 6v6 environments rather than clearing out houses and close corners on Al Mazrah or Ashika Island.

How to unlock the KV Broadside

The KV Broadside can be unlocked via the Season Two Battle Pass in Modern Warfare 2 or Warzone 2. Specifically, players just need to Claim Sector B4, which will be easy enough for most players. 

After that, you can drop into the game of your choosing and rock this ultra powerful shotgun. 

So, what so you know: That’s everything you need to know about the best KV Broadside loadout in Warzone 2 and Modern Warfare 2. As always, keep it locked at Twinfinite for more gaming tips and tricks.
