Best Expedite 12 Loadout in Modern Warfare 2 – The Modern Warfare 2 shotguns has proven to be a ruthless force, so here are the best Expedite 12 loaded attachments and perks.

How to unlock the Expedite 12 in MW2?

Luckily for players confused by Modern Warfare 2’s overly complicated weapon unlocking system, Expedite 12 is a base weapon unlocked at level 9.

The Expedite 12 is one of the few non-platform weapons in the game. Players just need to reach level 9 in Modern Warfare 2 to get the powerful Expedite 12 Shotgun.


  • Muzzle: Xten Modified Choke
  • Barrel: 18.5” Emperor Barrel
  • Laser: 1mw Quick Fire Laser
  • Stock: Schlager Resonance
  • Bolt: Expedite L-Bolt

Mobility, handling, and damage range are three keys to taking advantage of a Modern Warfare 2 shotgun loadout, which is why we opted for an Expedite 12 attachment that doesn’t degrade these attributes.

The 1mW Quick-fire laser and Schlager Resonance will greatly increase ADS speed, sprint speed, and crouch movement speed. Also, this particular laser doesn’t show your location unless you aim down.

The 18.5″ Emperor barrel will further increase movement speed and ADS speed. However, if you’re happy with the speed at which the laser and stock move, you can always trade that barrel for the devastating 12-gauge Dragon’s Breath ammo.

The Expedite L-Bolt is important because it increases the shotgun’s slow rate of fire, while the Xten Modified Choke increases the weapon’s damage range.

Perks & Equipment

  • Base Perk 1: Overkill
  • Base Perk 2: Battle Hardened
  • Bonus Perk: Fast Hands
  • Ultimate Perk: Ghost
  • Lethal: Drill Charge
  • Tactical: Flash Grenade
  • Field Upgrade: Battle Rage

Given that shotguns are one-dimensional in nature, consider equipping an Overkill and pairing it with a ranged weapon such as the TAQ-56 or Kastov-762. Regardless of the game mode, the duo will be a deadly duo.

Fast Hands are essential for quickly reloading the Expedite 12’s low ammo capacity, and also allow you to switch to ranged weapons faster. Ghost is a great ultimate because it keeps you away from too many UAVs.

Drill Charge has evolved into one of the best lethal weapons in the game, and when paired with the mighty Flash Grenade, clearing targets with Expedite 12 is a breeze.

The Battle Rage Field Upgrade matches the frontal style of the Expedite 12 Shotgun. With Battle Rage enabled, you can really craft aggressive Modern Warfare 2 gameplay.

Other alternatives to the Expedite 12 in MW2

The Lockwood 300 is another great shotgun that deserves credit early on. It’s as deadly as the Expedite 12, compared to the mighty 725 in Modern Warfare.

Of course, SMGs are also devastating at close range, and if shotguns aren’t your thing, the Lachmann Sub and Vaznev-9K are great options for you.
