The three shotguns in Call of Duty MW3 are not what I would call strong weapons, but if you’re a fan of the class or need to use them for weapon camo challenges, you need the absolute best set of attachments. For those of you experimenting with the Haymaker, it needs all of the help it can get from its loadout in MW3.

To see the best loadout for the Haymaker in MW3, keep reading my guide below.

With the Haymaker possessing such poor damage, it’s no secret as to why my first two attachments on the loadout are designed to boost damage range. The Bryson Improved Choke and Imperator Long Barrel allow you to see fewer hitmarkers and tightens your pellet spread. Following those attachments, the 20 Round Drum slightly hampers your mobility, but it’s crucial to ensure you can actually kill an enemy before having to reload.

The final two attachments on the loadout are designed to boost mobility and hipfire spread/accuracy. The No Stock Mod improves movement speed and ADS/sprint-to-fire time while the STOVL DR Laser Box increases all of your hipfire stats. These two attachments allow you to either hipfire or ADS with success while shooting at an enemy.

Best Class Setup for the Haymaker in MW3

Following that set of attachments, I now have the recommended perks, equipment, and Field Upgrade you should run to complete your Haymaker loadout in MW3.

  • Gloves: Quick Grip Gloves
  • Boots: Tactical Pads
  • Gear: Tac Mask/EOD Padding/Ghost T/V Camo


  • Lethal: Semtex Grenade
  • Tactical: Stim

Field Upgrade

  • Dead Silence

And that does it for my best Haymaker loadout and class setup in MW3. It’s certainly not an overly enjoyable shotgun to use, but this loadout gets the most out of it for you in multiplayer.
