Since the Call of Duty: Warzone meta was brought down by a nerf, the game’s community has been experimenting with new weapons. Among many other trends, shotguns are quickly making a comeback in the battle royale experience. Call of Duty: Warzone fans have been taking advantage of the increased shotgun options presented during the Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War integration.
One shotgun that has appeared rather recently in Call of Duty: Warzone and Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is the Streetsweeper shotgun. To unlock the Streetsweeper in either game, players must complete a simple challenge. There is no timer on this, so fans can complete it at any time, depending on when they want to unlock this unique shotgun option.
The Streetsweeper shotgun is a popular shotgun from throughout the Call of Duty franchise. Previously known as the Striker, the Streetsweeper is a full-auto shotgun with reliable damage and the largest ammo pool of all the shotguns. Players will have to hand load it making it a slow reload, but the rapid-fire option makes up the difference for this powerful primary. Depending on the build, this shotgun can be used in a variety of situations, including assaults and defensive positioning.
- Muzzle – Agency Choke
- Barrel – 13″ Reinforced Heavy
- Laser – SWAT 5mw Laser Sight
- Ammunition – STANAG 18 Round
- Stock – Wire Stock
Using this loadout, Call of Duty: Warzone fans will be able to take down squads quickly and silently. The Agency Choke offers a suppressor function while the 13″ Reinforced Heavy barrel closes in the spread allowing for a more concentrated burst of damage.
The SWAT 5mw Laser Sight adds a hip-fire advantage, while the STANAG 18 Round only increases the already large magazine capacity. Finish it with a Wire Stock for increased mobility, and players have a lethal frontal assault weapon for charging enemy positions in Call of Duty: Warzone.
While this Streetsweeper build is powerful, players should ensure that they are frequently reloading during Call of Duty: Warzone. The weapon can only sustain itself while fully loaded, so getting caught without a full clip can easily result in a squad wipe or worse. Players should pair the shotgun with a long-range assault rifle or tactical rifle, and never forget that switching will take a few seconds.
As far as shotguns go, the Streetsweeper is sure to make an impact on that Call of Duty community. Its rapid-fire function mixed with a lethal loadout can mean victory for most skilled players.
Call of Duty: Warzone is available on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
