Modern Warfare introduced players to two separate Bryson shotguns, the Bryson 800 and the Bryson 890. Alongside these two options, there are also several other excellent shotguns in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, giving players plenty of options to pick from.

With the right attachments, the Bryson 890 can be a fantastic weapon and one that can make you a real nuisance for your enemies.

When used correctly, shotguns can be incredibly effective, and they are a fantastic choice for running around the map at pace, ripping enemies off objectives, or making early inroads in Search and Destroy.

This article will discuss the best Bryson 890 loadout in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 to give you the best run and gun class possible.

The Best Bryson 890 Loadout in MW2

MW2 Bryson 890 1
  • Muzzle: Bryson Improved Choke
  • Underbarrel: VX Pineapple
  • Laser: STOVL Tac Laser
  • Barrel: 21.5” Bryson Tacfire
  • Stock: Sawed Off Mod

One of the great benefits of the Bryson 890 is that it has fantastic damage and enough power to take down any enemies at close range. Therefore, the focus of this loadout is to ensure we increase the range of this weapon, allowing you to get into gunfights from slightly further away with this shotgun.

Otherwise, you will be limited to only taking on gunfights in extremely close proximity, limiting your impact on the map.

Muzzle: Bryson Improved Choke

Therefore, the first attachment you should consider adding to your Bryson 890 loadout is the Bryson Improved Choke muzzle.

This attachment ensures the pellet spread of each trigger pull is much tighter, which ensures you can use this weapon at a further range.

This attachment alone will immediately allow you to take on gunfights slightly further away, making this weapon much more usable on certain maps.

Underbarrel: VX Pineapple

Although increasing your range on the Bryson 890 is very important, it is also essential to aim as accurately as possible, which can be a little tricky with the Bryson 890 shotgun.

That can be rectified by using the VX Pineapple underbarrel attachment. 

This attachment improves the accuracy of this shotgun and ensures that you hit your enemies more often than not when you pull the trigger.

With this shotgun often killing in just one hit, this attachment can be a game changer.

Laser: STOVL Tac Laser

Another attachment that further improves your accuracy is the STOVL Tac Laser. Not only does this weapon improve your accuracy, but it also increases your hip fire recoil control and hip fire accuracy, which is a nice bonus.

Sometimes, in gunfights that occur at close range, there is no time to lock in on your opponent, and you are forced to fire from the hip. If that is the case, it is nice to know that you have these bonuses on your side.

Barrel: 21.5” Bryson Tacfire

Another attachment to consider for your Bryson 890 loadout is the 21.5” Bryson Tacfire barrel. We added this attachment as it is another way to tighten your pellet spread and improve your accuracy when running this gun.

Not only that, but this barrel also increases your bullet velocity, ensuring your Bryson 890 inflicts even more damage with each shot.

Stock: Sawed Off Mod

Finally, we opted for the Sawed-Off Mod stock. When you equip a shotgun to your loadout, chances are you are keen to run and gun around the map. If that is the case, this attachment is excellent as it increases your ADS speed, hip fire recoil control, and sprint-to-fire time.

Alternative Bryson 890 Build

MW2 Bryson 890 2
  • Stock: Sawed Off Mod
  • Guard: Demo X50 Tactical Pump
  • Barrel: 16″ Bryson Shockwave
  • Muzzle: XTEN Modified Choke
  • Underbarrel: VX Pineapple

Another option you can use is a range of attachments that focus on making your operator even quicker.

This loadout still ensures the accuracy of your Bryson 890 is improved, but instead of adding additional damage, it will make you even quicker across the map. This extra speed will allow you to get to positions even quicker, potentially catching your opponents off guard.
