The best Vanguard Combat Shotgun loadouts provide the most varied performance out of all shotguns, but as expected, it really excels when things get up close and personal. Vanguard reintroduces the "Pick Ten" system meaning that players can bend the will of the shotgun to extend its range or pack an even heavier punch. If any of that sounds interesting to you then check out our best Vanguard Combat Shotgun loadouts which will cover the attachments and perks you should be using.

Prefer another shotgun? Check out the article below for another shotgun loadout guide: 

This pump-action shotgun is a classic in the Call of Duty franchise and has been present since Call of Duty 2. Originally the M1897 Trench Gun, the Combat Shotgun has the best range out of all shotguns, but struggles with aim down sights (ADS) speeds. 

Despite its pre-set strengths and weaknesses, the Combat Shotgun has a lot of leeway to play around with thanks to the Pick Ten system, which returns from Black Ops 4. To save you from the K/D wrecking experimentation, we’ve got the best Vanguard Combat Shotgun loadouts that will have soaring to the top of leaderboards in no time.

  • Barrel: Framble 23” No. 4m
  • Optic: Slate Reflector
  • Stock: Framble Big Game

To top off your best Vanguard Combat Shotgun loadouts, you’ll need the right perks and equipment.

  • Perk 1: Fortified/Dauntless
  • Perk 2: High Alert
  • Perk 3: Overkill
  • Secondary: MP40/ Type 100
