Our Warzone Season 4 shotgun tier list is here to break down the best weapons to use in Call of Duty's hit battle royale now that the latest major weapons balancing patch have entered the mix.

While Raven Software did not add a new shotgun to Verdansk with the release of Season 4, they did make some tweaks to the top dog in the class. Will this be able to shake up the short-range meta? Here are the best shotguns to use in Call of Duty: Warzone Season 4.

Warzone Season 4 Shotgun Tier List

S Tier

As previously mentioned, the Streetsweeper was the only shotgun to received a balancing tweak in this patch, and boy did Raven Software make some changes. With drastic hits, at least on paper, to the Streetsweeper's max, second, and third damage ranges, it appears players will now really need to barrel stuff people to be effective with it. Additionally, the Streetsweeper took a slight nerf in its movement speed. Until we see how this actually plays out in-game however, we'll leave the Streetsweeper at the top of the list.

A Tier

  • Origin 12 Shotgun
  • R9-0 Shotgun
  • Model 680
  • VLK Rogue
  • Gallo SA12
  • Hauer 77

While these shotguns aren't quite as obnoxiously game-changing as the Streetsweeper and the JAK-12, they remain viable in getting the job done up close. Black Ops Cold War's Gallo SA12 and Hauer 77 remain decent, but overall underwhelming options.

B Tier

  • 725

At the bottom of the tier list remains the 725, whose days of dominance early on in the lifespan of Modern Warfare feel like a lifetime ago. While the gun is still a pain to run into in Modern Warfare multiplayer at times, it's just not practical for Warzone due to its two-shot capacity.
