How to get the JAK-12 Shotgun in Modern Warfare and Warzone

by Lucas White

The latest update for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare did the usual map rotations and whatnot, in addition to adding a modify install feature to the PC version. But like usual, the mid-season update also introduced a new gun to the mix. These extra weapons aren’t a part of the season’s Battle Pass, and usually require some sort of in-game feat or achievement to unlock them. This time, for season six, we get the JAK-12, a shotgun that seems strong right out of the gate.

In order to unlock the new JAK-12 shotgun, you need to meet a specific condition. That requirement is to get three kills with a shotgun in seven different matches, and each kill has to be “hipfire.” That means firing without aiming down your sights. Getting kills without sights is pretty tough, and you’ll need to configure a shotgun loadout with as much stopping power as possible. But there are enough smaller maps in Modern Warfare to give yourself ample opportunities.

The JAK-12 shotgun is a beast of a weapon, easily one of the stronger shotguns in the gme right now at close range. But the nasty part is, with the right loadout you can boost the range a ton, making it just as deadly from range. A competitive Call of Duty player/content creator IceManIsaac has a suggested build floating around out there that’s doing exactly that, using attachments to tighten the weapon’s spread and giving it more range. Here’s what’s being suggested:

  • ZLR J-3600 TORRENT
  • 5mW Laser
  • Merc Foregrip 
  • 8 Round FRAG-12 MAGS

If you want an example of what the JAK12 shotgun is currently capable of, here’s the guy himself using the build and doing things a shotgun shouldn’t be doing. Just get a load of this nonsense:

Of course, weapons come out hot and then steadily get cooled down by the developers all the time, so perhaps the glory days ahead for the JAK-12 won’t be lasting long. But until then, here’s a great opportunity to up your game in Warzone or Modern Warfare.

Are you excited about this big, beefy shotgun showing up and causing trouble already? Or are you very much in the anti-shotgun crowd, and bemoaning this new, terrifying build? Let us know what you think over at the Prima Games Facebook and Twitter channels!
