The Haymaker is an absolute monster at close range, but this loadout allows it to excel at mid-range as well. I have boosted its overall damage range as well as its mobility and magazine size, allowing you to deal damage at any range for quite a while before having to reload. The Bryson Improved Choke and Imperator Long Barrel increase the shotgun’s damage range and reduce its spread while the 20 Round Drum boosts its magazine size to the maximum. If you Pack-A-Punch the Haymaker, it will have 40 rounds to shoot before having to reload.

Rounding out the loadout is the Corvus PEQ Beam-5 laser, increasing hipfire accuracy and spread, and the No Stock Mod, boosting all other forms of mobility. I recommend hipfiring with the Haymaker most of the time, but you have the ability to aim down sights quickly if need be as well.
