Proper shotgun loadouts are essential for Warzone players in Season 2 who wish to excel in close-quarters combat. There are currently nine shotguns in the game, with three of them coming from Black Ops Cold War.

While shotguns are similar in the sense that they tend to provide high damage and have a low rate of fire, they are surprisingly varied. As an example, there are fully automatic, semi-automatic, pump-action, and break-action shotguns. Each of the nine shotguns in Warzone serve their purpose, but some are better than others in Season 2. Here are the three best shotgun loadouts in Warzone Season 2.
