Battlefield 2042 has had a tough launch, but there’s a decent amount of fun to be had thanks to the weapons. Players have been looking for various loadouts to make their multiplayer journey more interesting, hence our handy 12M Auto Loadout for Battlefield 2042.
While most fans would rather use long-range weapons like the AK-24 or SWS-10, there are still those that want to look slick and savage with a shotgun. So, here's how to make the most out of this 12M Auto Loadout in Battlefield 2042.
Best 12M Auto Loadout
Like most shotguns in Battlefield 2042, the 12M Auto has a lot of power and can do a lot of damage, making it ideal for short-range combat but also a bit useless when it comes to dealing long-range damage to your foes.
12M Auto Attachments
Here's which attachments work best on the XYZ:
- Muzzle: LS-1 Laser Sight
- Scope: K8 Holo
- Ammunition: Buckshot Shell/Drum
- Mount: Shortened Barrel
Anyone using the 12M Auto shotgun will want to deal as much damage as possible, so having the Buckshot Shell as ammunition will ensure that you kill enemies as quickly as possible.
Having the LS-1 Laser Sight and the K8 Holo will let you aim better, so this combination should make sure that the 12M Auto shotgun is a force to be reckoned with.
12M Auto Secondary, Throwable, and Gadget
- Secondary: MP28
- Throwable: Frag
- Gadget: Recoilless M5
Since shotguns like the 12M Auto can be a bit risky as your main weapon, having a pistol like the MP28 will do wonders for you since it has much better range and can do a decent amount of damage in case your shotgun needs to reload.
Grenades are always essential, so having a Frag grenade to go with the 12M Auto shotgun should do wonders, taking out a good number of foes from far away while you kill anyone who might be rushing towards you with the shotgun.
Choosing a shotgun means you're all in on destroying everything in sight, so the Recoilless M5 should match the 12M Auto when it comes to wrecking some fools or even tanks that might bother you.
12M Auto Stat Improvement
The 12M Auto's base stats are as follows:
- Firepower: 70
- Accuracy: 32
- Range: 30
- Handling: 38
Once you add the above attachments to your loadout, your stat spread improves to this:
- Firepower: 70
- Accuracy: 51
- Range: 39
- Handling: 28
While the handling takes a beating, these improvements assure that you will be able to accurately shoot your enemies, which is what everyone should want with the 12M Auto shotgun in Battlefield 2042.
