If you are planning on running a shotgun in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, it can be difficult to decide which one is right for you. One of the best options available to you is the Bryson 800, but only if you equip it with the right attachments to get the best out of the weapon.

The good news is there are plenty of attachments that can help improve your Bryson 800, and make it a seriously competitive weapon for any player, no matter how skilled or experienced they are at playing Call of Duty games.

This article will discuss the best Bryson 800 Loadout in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, as well as an alternative for you to try and utilize to take your game to the next level.

The Best Bryson 800 Loadout in MW2

MW2 Bryson 800 2
  • Stock: Sawed Off Mod
  • Guard: Demo X50 Tactical Pump
  • Barrel: 16″ Bryson Shockwave
  • Muzzle: XTEN Modified Choke
  • Underbarrel: VX Pineapple

For the Bryson 800 loadout, it is essential to focus on keeping the shotgun accurate and keeping your operator fast. The shotgun is often a great option for anyone who wants to run and gun, so we need to ensure the loadout meets those requirements and doesn’t leave you hiding in a corner, trying to reload.

Stock: Sawed Off Mod

It is no secret that the Bryson 800 is one of the bulkier shotguns in Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2, which makes it quite heavy, and can slow you down in gunfights and around the map.

The Sawed-Off Mod stock is a great option as it reduces the weight of the shotgun, ensuring you are able to get around the map quickly and engage in close-up gunfights.

Guard: Demo X50 Tactical Pump

The Cryson 800 becomes a seriously strong shotgun if you manage to increase its fire rate and damage. It can quickly go from a slow shotgun with mid-level power to a fast run and gun weapon with high damage. 

One way to achieve this is using the Demo X50 Tactical Pump guard. It is essential for this loadout as it increases your ADS and rechambering speed.

Barrel: 16″ Bryson Shockwave

For the Bryson 800, there are several different thoughts surrounding which barrel you should attach to the shotgun. Some players prefer a long barrel, others prefer a short one, but we’ve opted for a barrel that is in the medium range.

We feel this is the best barrel for the Bryson 800 as it provides excellent recoil control. While that is a great benefit, the best benefit from this barrel is that it increases the shotgun’s bullet velocity.

Muzzle: XTEN Modified Choke

The XTEN modified choke is a great addition to your shotgun, as it increases the overall range of your shotgun without detriment to any of the other aspects of the gun. This allows you to engage in more gunfights, even if you are slightly further away than normal.

Underbarrel: VX Pineapple

Finally, the VX pineapple grip offers even further recoil accuracy, as well as improved hip fire accuracy. When operating a shotgun, there will be times when you are operating in tight areas of the map, and you may not have time to aim down the sight of your gun before shooting. 

This additional accuracy ensures you can win many gunfights, even when you fire from the hip.

This underbarrel also increases the shotgun’s aim while walking and recoil steadiness.

For our alternative Bryson 800 loadout, we have stuck with the 16” Bryson Shockwave barrel and the XTEN Modified Choke as they are non-negotiable attachments.

The other attachments highlighted here will help improve your operator speed and fire rate, allowing you to get more shots off on your opponent before they begin firing back at you.
