Shotguns are always a controversial topic of discussion when it comes to Call of Duty: Warzone. Some consider them low-skill and ‘nooby’, while others see them as legitimate weapons to use in close-range action.
Whatever your opinion, there’s no denying that the Gallo SA12 is one of the best Warzone guns at the moment for in-your-face gunfights, and is arguably the game’s number one shotgun. The pump shotgun is the most well-rounded in its class, offering quick time to kill and good movement, while also not having any gimmicky drawbacks like the Streetsweeper’s insanely long reload speed.
If you’ve been looking to move away from running SMGs like the MP5 or the MAC-10 and spice up your best Warzone loadout a bit, then the Gallo is the perfect alternative. Sure, it won’t offer you the benefits at more than ten metres than most SMGs can, but if you like fast and aggressive gameplay, the Gallo can outgun those SMGs at super close ranges with enough practice – and the right attachments, of course.
That’s why you’re here, so let’s get straight into it. Here’s the best Gallo Warzone loadout for you to run right now.
Best Gallo Warzone loadout
- Agency Choke
- 21.4” Reinforced Heavy
- Ember Sighting Point
- No Stock
- STANAG 12 Round
This is a max damage build courtesy of Warzone streamer ‘JGOD’, who after running the stats has determined that this Gallo has one of the best time to kill stats in the game. It’ll take two or three shots to down a fully-armoured enemy, which takes no time at all with its fast fire rate.
The STANAG 12 Round mag also means that if you hit your shots and aren’t firing at range, you could theoretically take down an entire team of four without reloading.
The only aspect of this build you might want to change is the stock attachment. If you like aiming down sights with your shotgun, swap out the No Stock for the Marathon Stock to give you quicker ADS speed.
As this Gallo is only useful up to a range of about ten metres, you’ll need something that’s going to deal with all of the longer-range battles you have to fight in Verdnask. Suitable all-rounder options can be found in our best RAM-7 Warzone loadout and our best AK-47 Warzone loadout.
For perks, you’ll want E.O.D. to deal with explosive damage, Overkill to run both your Gallo and a suitable assault rifle, and Amped for quicker weapon swapping speeds.
For tactical equipment, we almost always recommend a Heartbeat Sensor, although Stun Grenades could also be beneficial for when you’re clearing buildings out with your Gallo in hand. For your lethals, we’d go for either Semtex or Thermite Grenades.
So, if blasting someone away while also being close enough to shake their hand is your kinda thing in Warzone, this Gallo SA12 loadout will suit you to a tee.
