Best JAK-12 loadout for Warzone Pacific Season 2 Reloaded

The JAK-12 is one of the fastest-killing weapons in Warzone, so here are the best loadout attachments and Perks to maximize its potential.

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’s the best JAK-12 loadout you can run in both Caldera and Rebirth Island.

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

You’ll need to equip the right attachments, Perks, and Equipment to run the best JAK-12 loadout, so here’s everything you need to dominate with this fully-automatic Shotgun.

Best Warzone JAK-12 loadout attachments

Best JAK-12 loadout for Warzone
  • Muzzle: FORGE TAC Marauder
  • Barrel: ZLR J-3600 Torrent
  • Laser: 5mW Laser
  • Magazine: 20 Round Drum Mags
  • Rear Grip: Stippled Grip Tape

There are plenty of viable attachments for the JAK-12, but we’ve used this combination to give it the quickest TTK possible, increasing its mobility and giving a much tighter bullet spread.

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

Next, we’ve added both the 5mW Laser and Stippled Grip Tape. Combined, the JAK-12 will have an incredibly fast sprint-to-fire speed, and fantastic hip-fire accuracy. Finally, the 20 Round Drum Mags will put plenty of shells at your disposal and give a reasonable reload speed.

Best Perks & Equipment to use with Warzone JAK-12

EOD Perk in Call of Duty Warzone
  • Perk 1: E.O.D
  • Perk 2: Overkill
  • Perk 3: Amped
  • Lethal Equipment: Semtex
  • Tactical Equipment: Stim

The JAK-12 is an excellent close-range weapon, so you’ll need the right Perks and Equipment to complement it.

E.O.D will protect you from a manner of explosives, allowing you to continue to push in even when Semtex and C4s are being chucked your way.

The JAK-12 loses its power beyond extreme close range, so you’ll want to use Overkill and bring along something like the XM4 or Automaton in your primary slot. Finally, you’ll want Amped to quickly switch between these weapons.

For Lethal Equipment, we recommend the Semtex. It’s a great way to clear a room and force an injured enemy out of cover. For Tactical, the Stim remains one of the best options thanks to the speed boost and quick health regeneration.

How to unlock JAK-12 in Warzone

All you need 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 out as soon as you get the three kills.

Modern Warfare is the quickest place to unlock the JAK, but Plunder or Clash are the best places to go if you only have Warzone. Just get your three hip-fire kills, then either play out the game or back out, it’s up to you!

Best alternatives to the JAK-12 in Warzone

There are plenty of solid alternatives to the JAK-12 in Warzone Pacific Season 2 Reloaded, including the Owen Gun and MP40. Both of these weapons are highly accurate and fast-killing SMGs and will suit you well in both Caldera and Rebirth Island.

Warzone players call for devs to remove Shotguns after Season 3 Reloaded damage nerfs

Many now feel that Warzone’s Shotguns are pointless after the damage nerfs that came with the Season 3 Reloaded update.



warzone pacific season 3 reloaded shotgun nerf

Warzone Pacific players are pretty disappointed with the Shotgun nerfs in the Season 3 Reloaded update, with some even claiming the weapon category should be removed entirely.

While some of the changes introduced in the Warzone Pacific Season 3 Reloaded update are being praised, some are not too happy with the weapon buffs and nerfs, especially when it comes to the Shotgun category.

Shotguns aren’t the most meta weapons to use in Warzone, but they have previously held their own in close-range battles. With the recent health pool change, the devs decided to nerf the damage of a variety of Shotguns, causing some discontent in the community.

SMGs have dominated the close-range battles in Warzone Pacific, leaving hardly any room for Shotguns to excel.

Things have now seemingly gotten worse for Shotguns in the Warzone Pacific Season 3 Reloaded update, as the Streetsweeper, Gallo, JAK-1, Origin 12, R-90, and Gracey Auto all had their damages reduced by 20%.

Reddit user Gtaher0 highlighted these changes with the caption “Holy Jesus,” indicating a sense of shock.

Users in the comments have chipped in, also shocked about the changes and slightly disappointed, with one player even feeling as if Shotguns should be removed from the loot pool: “Remove shotgun ground loot.”

This is mainly because, as another user states, “some shotguns don’t even have enough rounds needed to down some players.”

On the other hand, some aren’t that bothered, feeling as if most of the Shotguns that were nerfed are rarely used anyway: “Jak12 and Streetsweeper were pretty nutty. Other ones I never saw used in-game over the last 3 months.”

Warzone players satisfied with “amazing” new Squad HUD feature

Warzone Pacific Season 3 Reloaded brought some new content to the game, including a Squad HUD feature which players are loving.

Warzone Pacific players have been enjoying the new Squad HUD feature which came with the Season 3 Reloaded update, with some calling it “amazing.”

Warzone Pacific Season 3 Reloaded is finally here, and while players are getting to grips with the new Underground Transit System on Caldera, some are also very satisfied with the new Squad HUD feature.

This new feature gives players a clear view of the team’s resources, including the Killstreaks they are holding, the amount of money, the number of Armor Plates they are carrying, and also if they have a Gas Mask.

Although it seems like a small feature, the community is loving it, with some even describing it as “amazing.”

Warzone players fighting in Rebirth Island

Reddit user Mobile750APKStore put a post up in the Warzone subreddit highlighting the new expandable Squad HUD in Warzone Pacific Season 3 Reloaded.

The feature is a nice quality of life change that gives players a better view of their teammates’ resources. This will improve the communication and flow of the game, as players will easily be able to see what their squad needs, without even having to ask or wait for a response.

The community has been reacting to this new feature in the comments of this Reddit post, with one user stating that the Squad HUD is “amazing.” In the same breath, the user hilariously also claims that it is a hindrance when it comes to lying about the number of plates you have:

“This is amazing…But now I can’t lie to my teammates about having no plates :(.”

Of course, this is actually great when it comes to teamwork, as players who lie about the number of plates they have can now be caught out and will be encouraged to share with the team.

Aside from the comedic comment, others also seem very happy with the new feature, especially as it has been asked for by the community in the past. One comment said, “I remember seeing that post and loving it. Thrilled to see that it’s become a reality.”

Hopefully Raven can continue to bring features like this to the game and make players happy. For more, check out how the brand new Champion of Caldera LTM works.

Call of Duty players are terrified that last-gen consoles will ruin Warzone 2

Fans of the battle royale are concerned that Warzone 2’s potential compatibility with last-gen consoles could ruin the game.



Warzone 2 PS4 Xbox One

Players are hoping that the highly anticipated sequel does not include past-gen compatibility, as they fear this could completely ruin the Warzone 2 experience for current-gen users.

The next Call of Duty era is right around the corner, and excitement for Warzone 2 and Modern Warfare 2 has begun to mount ahead of June 2022. Leaks have revealed several details of the battle royale sequel including a new interrogation system and a sneak peek at what the map could look like.

Despite the overwhelmingly positive reaction at this early stage, there are players who are wary of yet to be confirmed aspects of Warzone 2. One of these unknowns is the result of the game’s compatibility with past-gen consoles.

Ghost in Call of Duty Warzone

As it stands, there has not been confirmation concerning Warzone 2’s compatibility with past-gen consoles. While we know for sure that the game will be available on PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X|S, past-gen compatibility has not been confirmed.

However, thanks to Vanguard in-game files, data miners discovered that Modern Warfare 2 will be available on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC. This reveal did not sit well with players who took to the Warzone subreddit to discuss the repercussions of a similar experience for Warzone 2.

The player who wrote the original post believes that the overall performance and quality of Warzone 2 could suffer if it has to cater to past-gen hardware. This player is worried that the same limitations holding the current iteration of Warzone back could also plague the sequel.

The comments proved that players were completely split on the issue. Some point to the shortage of current-gen consoles as a valid reason for making Warzone 2 accessible to all, “isolating people cause they don’t have new consoles is stupid and not enough people are on new gen consoles anyway.”

While others had less sympathy, stating that at a certain point developers need to move the overall experience to the next level, “once the new s*** comes out, you need the new console for the new experience and the better graphics etc.”

Early reports from renowned leaker Tom Henderson initially revealed that Warzone 2 would only release on current-gen consoles and PC, but he did not rule out the possibility of a separate version for past-gen players. This solution is similar to what the original post details, but we’ll have to wait for official confirmation from the devs to find out if this is even possible.
