When does Warzone Pacific season 3 start? Season 2 end date, Caldera map changes, Sniper nerfs, more

Modern Warfare’s JAK-12 Shotgun has always been a powerful choice in Call of Duty: Warzone, especially after Season 2 Reloaded’s TTK changes. Here is the best JAK-12 loadout you can run in both Caldera and Rebirth Island.

Warzone Pacific Season 2 Reloaded has made significant changes to the TTK in Caldera, giving players an additional 50 HP. This allowed the already powerful JAK-12 shotgun to shine, where it became the fastest close-range weapon in the game.

You’ll need to equip the right attachments, perks, and gear to execute the best JAK-12 loadout, so here’s everything you need to dominate with this fully automatic shotgun.

Best Warzone JAK-12 Loadout Accessories

  • Muzzle: FORGE TAC Marauder
  • Barrel: ZLR J-3600 Torrent
  • Laser: 5mW Laser
  • Magazine: 20 round battery chargers
  • Rear handle: Dotted grip tape

There are many viable attachments for the JAK-12, but we used this combination to give it the fastest TTK possible, increasing its mobility and giving a much tighter ball spread.

First, we combine the FORGE TAC Marauder muzzle and ZLR J-3600 Torrent cannon, which together tighten the bullet’s spread and increase both its damage and range. This will ensure that every pellet lands, allowing the JAK to deal maximum damage.

Then we added both the 5mW laser and Dotted grip tape. Combined, the JAK-12 will have incredibly fast fire sprint speed and fantastic hip fire accuracy. Finally, the 20 round battery chargers will put a lot of shells at your disposal and give a reasonable reload speed.

Best perks and gear to use with Warzone JAK-12

EOD perk in Call of Duty Warzone
  • Advantage 1: NMS
  • Advantage 2: Exaggerated
  • Advantage 3: amplified
  • Lethal Equipment: Semtex
  • Tactical gear: Stimulate

The JAK-12 is a great close-range weapon, so you’ll need the right perks and gear to complete it.

NMS will protect you in an explosive way, allowing you to keep pushing even when Semtex and C4 are thrown your way.

The JAK-12 loses power beyond extreme range, so you’ll want to use Exaggerated and bring something like the XM4 or Automaton into your main location. Finally, you will want amplified Quickly switch between these weapons.

For lethal equipment, we recommend the Semtex. It’s a great way to clear a room and force a wounded enemy into cover. For Tactics, the Stimulate remains one of the best options thanks to the speed boost and rapid health regeneration.

All you have to do to unlock the JAK-12 is get 3 Hipfire Kills using shotguns in 7 different matches. And because the JAK-12 is a Modern Warfare weapon, you can back up as soon as you get all three kills.
