Not many weapons can compete with the best Modern Warfare 2 Bryson 890 Shotgun loadout in close-quarters combat. This Modern Warfare 2 Pump-Action Shotgun isn't particularly impressive on its own, but with the right attachments and Perks, you can inflict serious devastation.

  • Muzzle - Bryson Improved Choke
  • Barrel - 21.5" Bryson Tacfire
  • Laser - Point-G3P 04
  • Underbarrel - VX Pineapple
  • Stock - Sawed Off Mod

By default, most Shotguns in MW2 are beastly in close quarters, but outside of that, they lack the range to truly compete with other types of weapons. With that, it's important to equip your Bryson 890 Shotgun loadout with attachments like the Bryson Improved Choke and 21.5" Bryson Tacfire that increase stats like Damage Range, Bullet Velocity, and Tighten Bullet Spread. The better the Damage Range, Bullet Velocity, and Tighten Bullet Spread, the farther away you'll be able to one-shot-kill opponents.

Since you'll primarily be engaging at close range, naturally, you'll want to focus on boosting the MW2 Bryson 890 Shotgun's Hip Fire Accuracy and Hip Recoil Control. The VX Pineapple Underbarrel and Point-G3P 04 Laser do just that, among other benefits.

Finally, cap it all off with the Sawed Off Mod. This attachment enhances the Bryson 890's Movement Speed, Aim Down Sight Speed, and Sprint to Fire Speed, negating some of the penalties imposed by the other four attachments and allowing you to close the distance and quickly fire off shells at opponents.

  • Secondary - X12
  • Tactical - Flash Grenade
  • Lethal - Drill Charge
  • Base Perks - Double Time and Battle Hardened
  • Bonus Perk - Fast Hands
  • Ultimate Perk - Quick Fix
  • Field Upgrade - Dead Silence

The best MW2 Bryson 890 Shotgun loadout is designed to rip enemies apart in close-quarters combat, so Flash Grenades and Drill Charges will help you take control of buildings and tight corridors so that you can defend them from within. And if you feel like flanking behind enemy lines, Dead Silence will suppress those noisy footsteps.

As for Perks, Double Time is great for getting back into the action and back in the Bryson 890 Shotgun's effective kill range. To counter Stuns, Flashes, and other impairing Equipment that will leave you dead in the water, we suggest using Battle Hardened as your second Base Perk.

It's easy to blow through ammunition using a Shotgun, so Fast Hands keeps your Bryson 890 locked and loaded at all times. And since Shotguns excel at holding down objectives, Quick Fix will have you feeling like The Terminator with nearly non-stop health regeneration.

Altogether this MW2 Bryson 890 Shotgun Class setup is a force to be reckoned with!
