The best Vanguard Shotguns meta is well and truly alive this year, with players using them to rack up V2 Rockets (the Vanguard Nuke) in under a minute - thanks to Das Haus. Vanguard's map layout is perfect for the run and gun stylistic that comes with a shotgun, especially with the right loadouts and attachments to compliment the Gung-Ho gameplay. So, with so many to choose from, here's our guide to the best Vanguard Shotguns, and the loadouts you'll want to set up.

Fancy another weapon category? Check out these guides:

Best Vanguard Shotguns: Einhorn Revolving

The Einhorn Revolving is a shotgun that mimics the actions of a Magnum revolver pistol, with a circular chamber that pumps the clusters of gunpowders into the barrel and the face of your opponents. As the starting shotgun, many people may have skated over the power of the Einhorn Revolving, but it takes its place as one of the best Vanguard Shotguns with few complaints. Boasting a good rate of fire and a lot of power, the shotgun is a great way to introduce yourself to the category before moving on to the likes of the Combat Shotgun. With attachments that influence speed and range, this is one of the best Vanguard Shotgun loadouts around.

  • Muzzle: A5 Smoothbore
  • Barrel: Klauser 610mm Light
  • Optic: MK. 8 Reflector
  • Stock: Residorf Folding
  • Underbarrel: SMLE Pistol Grip
  • Magazine: Birdshot 5 Round Cylinder
  • Ammo Type: Incendiary
  • Rear Grip: Hatched Grip
  • Proficiency: Momentum
  • Kit: Fully Loaded

Best Vanguard Shotguns: Gracey Auto

As yet another unfamiliar weapon to the Call of Duty franchise, this lead pumper is a fearsome weapon for those pesky nooks and crannies that are littered throughout every map. This Vanguard shotgun is excellent up close but has a very short barrel and sucks at more than five feet. Mixed with some incendiary rounds on objective-based games though, and this best Vanguard shotgun loadout is a one-way ticket to mayhem. 

  • Muzzle: A5 Smoothbore
  • Barrel: CGC 22” Rapid
  • Optic: Medium Iron Sights
  • Stock: Chariot Sport
  • Underbarrel: Carver Foregrip
  • Magazine: 12 Gauge 7 Round Mags
  • Ammo Type: Incendiary
  • Rear Grip: Pine Tar Grip
  • Proficiency: Frenzy
  • Kit: Quick

Check out our best Vanguard Gracey Auto loadouts for more info on this unfamiliar Shotgun.

Best Vanguard Shoguns: Combat Shotgun

The absolute staple of the Vanguard shotgun class is the Combat Shotgun. Blessed with all of the finesse and speed of the Grace Auto and the range of Einhorn Revolving, your jack of all trades for the class is by far the most overpowered gun on the game. Whether you're spicing it with dragon breath rounds or popping on a bayonet with Reach, nothing in your near proximity is walking out of a gunfight with you alive, unless it's another Combat Shotgun. This is the best Vanguard shotgun loadout in the game. 

  • Muzzle: M97 Full Choke
  • Barrel: Framble 23” No. 4m
  • Optic: Slate Reflector
  • Stock: Framble Big Game
  • Underbarrel: Mark VI Skeletal
  • Magazine: 16 Gauge 7 Round Drums
  • Ammo Type: Slug
  • Rear Grip: Stippled Grip
  • Proficiency: Sleight of Hand
  • Kit: Quick

Looking for something with a little more range? We've got a more in-depth best Vanguard Combat Shotgun loadouts guide.
