Are you someone who struggles in close-quarters combat while playing Modern Warfare 2? Well, you might need to get your hands on the Lockwood 300. This double-barrel shotgun is a little bit broken and a lot of fun to use in the new Call of Duty game. So, here’s everything you need to know about the best Modern Warfare 2 Lockwood 300 loadout and class setup.
Easily one of the best Modern Warfare 2 shotguns, the Lockwood 300 is a lot like Modern Warfare’s 725 – and, yes, that means it’s just as broken as that weapon was when Infinity Ward’s last Call of Duty game launched. Of course, you’re going to want to keep an eye on the best Modern Warfare 2 battle rifles and the best Modern Warfare 2 assault rifles, but the Lockwood 300 is even a decent option in mid-range firefights – with the right attachments, of course.
Best Modern Warfare 2 Lockwood 300 loadout
Okay, enough chit-chat. Let’s get stuck into the best Modern Warfare 2 Lockwood 300 loadout – thanks to Call of Duty content creator ‘ItzEpic‘:
- Receiver: Lockwood 725
- Muzzle: Sakin DB107
- Barrel: 711mm Matuzek D50
- Laser: STOVL Tac Laser
- Stock: Heist Stock Mod
- Underbarrel: VX Pineapple
First up, let’s talk about the Heist Stock Mod attachment. This is going to improve this weapon’s speed dramatically, but at the cost of some aiming stability and flinch resistance. So, you need to make sure you’re prepared to run-and-gun with this Lockwood 300 build – because that’s what it’s going to be best at.
However, the 711mm Matuzek D50 barrel attachment is going to improve this weapon’s damage range and offer up a tighter pellet spread than normal. So, you will still be able to contend with enemies a little further away. The Sakin DB107 muzzle attachment also builds on these features while adding sound suppresion – which is somewhat useful if you’re hitting the back lines.
Adding the STOVL Tac Laser attachment to this weapon build will improve it’s hipfire recoil control and accuracy, something that will make you more effective at closer ranges. Finally, the VX Pineapple underbarrel attachment is going to build on this further meaning you should have less trouble hipfiring at a little bit of a distance.
With these attachments equipped, you’re going to be looking at one of the best Modern Warfare 2 loadouts available when it comes to this shotgun. You should find yourself hitting Gold camo in no time.
Best Modern Warfare 2 Lockwood 300 class setup
We know this shotgun is going to hit hard at close ranges, but it’s naturally small ammo capacity is going to leave you caught out when trying to reload. So, that’s why we recommend taking the X13 Auto into battle with it. This fully automatic sidearm will shred enemies in close-quarters combat and it’s the perfect pairing for someone who’s adopting a run-and-gun playstyle. If you want a fully kitted out X13 Auto, you can find out how to get the Side Impact weapon blueprint right here.
When it comes to this class’ perk selection, you’re going to want to look at Scavenger and Tracker for the base perk slots. Scavenger is going to keep you stocked up with shells and Tracker is going to make sure you’re able to make the most of catching your enemies unaware.
In the bonus perk slot, we recommend using Fast Hands. This is going to improve your reload speed across the board and only make you more effective in a tight spot. The ultimate perk slot for this class should be either Ghost or Quick Fix. Ghost, as we all know, has it’s uses – as it keeps you off of UAVs and radar scans. However, Quick Fix could keep you alive for longer when you’re pushing an enemy team. So, it’s up to you to decide which one will benefit your playstyle more.
In this class’ equipment slots, you’re going to want to use Semtex and Stun Grenades – a classic combination. We also think Dead Silence is the best field upgrade option here. We know it was nerfed a little, but it’s still a fantastic way to push enemies and catch them unaware.
Well, that’s all you need to know about this Lockwood 300 loadout. If you’re gunning for the higher killstreaks, you should find this a lot easier with this class setup. If you’re not sure the X13 Auto is enough, you should check out the best Modern Warfare 2 SMGs and consider swapping Tracker out for Overkill. But, this class will do the job.
