The shotgun class in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 hasn’t received nearly as much attention in the early portion of the game’s life cycle as other classes. Players have been running around with assault rifles, submachine guns, and snipers more than anything else, which is no surprise. However, with the introduction of the KV Broadside in Season 2, shotguns suddenly have a lot more eyes on them. If players want to find an alternative to the dominant Broadside, though, they should check out the Bryson 800, which has a decently strong loadout in MW2.
The Bryson 800 is a pump-action shotgun that can deal one-shot kills if players are at the right distance and if they’re using the right attachments. While the shotgun won’t be able to kill enemies across the map or do anything else overpowered, it’s a solid weapon that can come in handy when faced with a close-range encounter. If players aren’t using the best set of attachments, though, they’ll put themselves at more of a disadvantage.

Best Bryson 800 loadout in Modern Warfare 2
The Bryson 800 is a well-rounded shotgun, but could use some improvements to its damage range and mobility. An increase in these stats makes it more viable in close range and allows players to compete with a fast-killing SMG or AR.
- Muzzle: Bryson Improved Choke
- Barrel: 21.5″ Bryson Shredder
- Laser: Stovl Tac Laser
- Stock: Sawed-Off Mode
- Underbarrel: VX Pineapple
The loadout begins with the Bryson Improved Choke and the 21.5″ Bryson Shredder. The former increases damage range and pellet spread while the latter boosts bullet velocity and recoil control. The rest of the loadout aims to improve mobility, with the Stovl Tac Laser increasing hip-fire accuracy so players don’t always have to aim down sights. The Sawed-Off Mode gives players extra sprint-to-fire speed for any time they want to ADS, though.
