The Best Warzone 2 Bryson 890 Loadout | The Better Bryson

Here we have the best Bryson 890 setup and loadout for Warzone 2.0. The Bryson 890 is basically just the better Bryson 800 and is worth a look for that reason alone.

The Bryson 890 is especially fun in MW2 multiplayer, and it cleans up on Shipment. But, unfortunately, this is not the case in Warzone 2.0... Shotguns are quite superfluous on the large Al Mazrah map, as they only work at extremely short distances and even there often require several shots to down. So we advise you to only take a shotgun with you as a third weapon in your backpack, if at all.

The Bryson 890 is a bit better than the Bryson 800, but that's no reason to choose it over the Expedite 12, which is the best shotgun overall. The damage is simply not particularly high with the 890, and you can't really get effective range out of it. The only major advantage the Bryson 890 has over other shotguns is that it uses a magazine, so it's quick to reload. But that's it. Anyway, here's our best setup for the gun.

In our setup, we go for less pellet dispersion and a little more range with the barrel and muzzle. The stock provides a decent mobility boost and thanks to the handguard we can slightly increase fire rate. The larger magazine also ensures that we can kill an entire squad in close combat without reloading.

When it comes to tuning, we go for a little more range, but otherwise focus fully on mobility and speed. Above all, we're trying to push the sprint-to-fire speed.

Warzone 2.0 Bryson 890 Loadout: Secondary Weapon, Perks & Equipment

Secondary Weapon: M13B

With a sniper as our main weapon, we obviously need a good secondary weapon for short to medium ranges. We chose the M13B here, which has a high rate of fire and good mobility for an assault rifle. With the M13B we are well prepared, especially for medium distances, but we are not completely lost in close combat either. Overall, the M13B is just a good all-rounder.

Perks (Basic, Bonus & Ultimate)

Again our standard choice:

Perk PackageSpecter
Basic Perks

Double Time / Tracker

Bonus PerkSpotter
Ultimate Perk


The Specter Pack is currently the best Perk Package in Warzone 2.0. Ghost is simply indispensable, with so many players running Birds Eye and popping UAVs. Plus, Double Time and Trackers are helpful in many situations - but nobody really needs Spotter.

Unfortunately, we have to give up Overkill in favor of Ghost, but we can simply buy the second weapon in the loadout at a buy station.

Equipment (Lethal & Tactical)

Our favorite combo:



Flash Grenade

There just isn't a better combo than Semtex and Flashbangs right now. Stims and Throwing Knives might be a better choice for extremely aggressive players, but for everyone else, this is the best combo.

That's about it for the Bryson 890. If you're looking for something a little more reliable, try one of the best battle rifles in Warzone 2.0.
