April 26, 2023: Is the Lockwood 300 worth using in Season 3? Find the best loadout for close-range action and the best attachments.

The best Modern Warfare 2 Lockwood 300 loadout should prove popular heading into Season 3 Reloaded but in fact, this particular shotgun struggles to live up to the hype despite possessing plenty of firepower.

This particular shotgun heavily resembles the notorious 725 shotgun from the Modern Warfare 2 prequel and as expected, it packs a deadly punch when up close and personal with the opposition. At longer distances, the damage drop-off severely impacts the performance but there are attachments to improve damage range.

Although handling takes a hefty hit, it's very easy to score plenty of kills when firing the Lockwood 300 from the hip.

Best Modern Warfare 2 Lockwood 300 attachments

The Modern Warfare 2 gunsmith contains a huge range of attachments that improve everything including damage range, mobility, and sprint-to-fire time. Here's what we recommend:

  • Muzzle: XTEN V1.3 Choke
  • Barrel: 711mm Matuzek D50
  • Laser: STOVL Tac Laser
  • Stock: Cronen Marshal Stock
  • Underbarrel: FSS Sharkfin 90

This combination of attachments creates significant improvements in damage, range, and accuracy which is essential when firing the Lockwood 300 from the hip. The XTEN V1.3 choke combined with the 711mm Matuzek barrel guarantees a one-shot kill while the STOVL Tac Laser increases hip-fire accuracy.

Overall, the Lockwood 300 is incredibly strong when up close and personal with the opposition but at further ranges it lacks versatility.

Is the Lockwood 300 good in Modern Warfare 2?

If you want a weapon that dominates close-range combat, the Lockwood 300 is the gun for you.
