Whether it’s on Caldera or Rebirth Island, a strong weapon is necessary early in Season 3 of Call of Duty: Warzone to succeed. While the submachine gun and assault rifle metas have settled down, shoguns have been overlooked in Season 3 — and the Gallo SA12 is back in Warzone with a loadout that can dominate the opposition.
For Warzone veterans, the Gallo SA12 is a familiar face. This Black Ops Cold War shotgun was a firm member of the meta for much of last year, possessing huge damage potential at close and medium range. In Season 3 of Warzone, the Gallo SA12 has a somewhat broken loadout that can give players a massive edge over the competition.
Best Gallo SA12 loadout in Warzone
One of the most attractive traits of the Gallo SA12 in Season 3 is its ability to take down SMG players in close range. With the shotgun’s fire rate and damage range, players will have no trouble eliminating a player using an SMG of any caliber. Of course, in order to accomplish that feat, players will need the Gallo’s professionally-recommended loadout:
- Muzzle: Agency Choke
- Barrel: 21.4′ Reinforced Heavy
- Laser: Ember Sighting Point
- Stock: Wire Stock
- Magazine: STANAG 12-round magazine
With this loadout, players see their mobility, damage range and magazine capacity increased. These are all important traits to help players combat SMGs whenever they go up against them. Professional players have claimed this loadout for the Gallo SA12 can kill enemies in just a few shots, making it an ideal secondary in Season 3, especially on Rebirth Island where most of the action takes place in close quarters.
