For the Black Ops Cold War, shotguns have switched to secondary, along with pistols, melee weapons, and launchers. Hauer 77 seems familiar to some Call of Duty veterans. The shotgun resembles the W1200 from the first Modern Warfare game and like its predecessor, it dominates in close combat. Below we will introduce to you the best Black Ops Hauer 77 loadout to help you master this weapon.

Despite its immense strength against the majority of the armory at close range, the Hauer 77 suffers from its slow and sluggish movement, slow reload speed, and accuracy when trying to take it down Down enemies from a distance.
Its ability to eliminate opponents in one shot is a plus for the Hauer 77 loadout. Despite its flaws, this weapon is extremely easy to use and one of the more powerful side weapons that should be included in your back pocket.
