The meta in Call of Duty: Warzone is always changing. This is mainly due to Infinity Ward nerfing various weapons that become too dominant in Verdansk. Now, shotguns are becoming an increasingly popular choice as a secondary weapon. Also, the Origin 12 is now available as ground loot, and even the default version is proving to be powerful. However, the Warzone R9-0 shotgun is particularly dominant as it can shred through enemy armor at close range.
The base weapon already deals a high amount of damage and offers a significant amount of control. The first attachment to equip is the Forge TAC Sentry Barrel. The purpose of this attachment is to increase the weapon’s range. As well as this, the barrel tightens the pellet spread. Next is the 5mW tactical laser, which improves the weapon’s accuracy while aiming down sight as well as improving hip fire accuracy.
Next, the monolithic suppressor provides the shotgun with sound suppression as well as a small increase to its range. Adding a rear grip tape is useful for any weapon, especially shotguns. The rubberized grip tape provides more recoil control. Pairing this with the Ranger Foregrip offers further recoil control and aiming stability.

A popular loadout also includes the Dragon’s Breath rounds, which deal additional damage via the shotgun pellets as well as lasting damage from the fire. You can unlock this attachment by completing a fairly simple challenge. For this class, use the Choke muzzle. The Choke muzzle provides a tighter pellet spread and increases damage range. Following this, attach the Mercenary Foregrip to increase recoil control and aim-down-sight speed which is useful when using the Dragon’s Breath ammunition. Finally, complete the class with the Forge TAC Sentry Barrel and the 5mW tactical laser from the previous class.
The Call of Duty: Warzone R9-0 shotgun has a chance to gain you quick and easy kills. Depending on your play style, you can pair your shotgun with a sniper, or an assault rifle.
