Best JAK-12 Warzone Loadout

Shotguns in Warzone may not dominate the metagame like they used to but they can still pack a hefty punch when up close and personal with an opponent.

The JAK-12 heavily resembles the iconic AA-12 from Modern Warfare 2 and with Season 3 of Warzone Pacific on the horizon, many players may resort to this trusty shotgun as they continue to drop onto Caldera and Rebirth Island

With numerous attachments that can be equipped, it can be tricky to determine which are the best JAK-12 attachments. To avoid any guesswork, we've found the best attachment combination and the best JAK-12 loadout to use!

JAK 12 Warzone Overview

The close-range metagame for multiplayer and Warzone is frequently changing, with players opting for a range of sub-machine guns and other shotguns to deal maximum damage when getting up close and personal with the enemy.

Unlocked after scoring three hipfire kills using shotguns in seven different matches, the JAK-12 comes with a deadly combination of high damage and high mobility, making it a must-have weapon on small multiplayer maps and Rebirth Island.

With a drum magazine, grip tape, and laser attached, the JAK-12 is extremely easy to use and thanks to its supreme damage output and mobility stats, it’s very easy to go on a killing spree.

Best JAK-12 Warzone Attachments

Here are the best Warzone attachments to equip:

  • Muzzle: FORGE TAC Marauder
  • Barrel: ZLR J-3600 Torrent

This combination of attachments focuses on improving the range of the JAK-12 in addition to ensuring lethal accuracy is achieved when firing from the hip. The star of the show is the 20-round magazine. The extra ammunition means you can eliminate multiple enemies in quick succession without having to reload.

Best JAK-12 Warzone Perks and Equipment

Once you've selected the best JAK-12 attachments, turning your attention to the Perk and Equipment menus is the next step. In order to maximise performance, there are certain combinations to benefit the JAK-12 even further.


  • EOD (Perk 1)
  • Overkill (Perk 2)
  • Combat Scout (Perk 3)

EOD increases resistance to explosives while Overkill allows you to use two primary weapons in the same loadout. To complement the immense power of the JAK-12, we recommend Vanguard's Automaton assault rifle.

Last and by no means is Combat Scout. If you manage to hit a target and they get away, a bright orange highlight will appear allowing you to plot your next plan of attack with ease.


  • Frag Grenade (Lethal)
  • Stun Grenade (Tactical)

This tried and tested combination of Equipment is a surefire way to deal additional damage and to guarantee some easy eliminations. Hold the Frag for a couple of seconds before throwing it to break the armour of nearby opposition. To stop them moving away, follow up with a Stun to slow their movement and finish them off with the JAK-12 in hand.

Is The JAK-12 Good in Warzone?

If you want to excel in close quarters combat, the JAK-12 shotgun is up there with the very best. With no need to aim down its sights, it's perfect to use if an opponent suddenly appears from a corner when you least expect it. I highly recommend using it!
