- Magazine: MX Pro Mag
- Laser: Schlager ULO-66 Laser
- Stock: MX DCP-0
- Rear Grip: XRX Rush
Kicking off this best Warzone 2 MX Guardian loadout, The MX-G Mobile barrel will increase your movement speed, damage range, and hip fire accuracy, which are all vital stats for a close-range Shotgun build.
The MX Pro Mag will improve the weapon’s aim down sight speed and sprint-to-fire speed, allowing you to get your shot off quicker, especially while pushing and being aggressive.
As for the laser, the Schlager ULO-66 will go all out on your hip fire accuracy and hip fire recoil control, which is essential for a close-range Shotgun, as most of the time you will be firing from the hip.
The MX DCP-0 stock is a great choice as it improves your sprint speed, aim walking speed, crouch movement speed, and aim down sight speed, allowing you to be faster in those close-range fights.
Lastly, for the rear grip, the XRX Rush provides even more mobility with an improvement in sprint to fire and aimed down sight speeds.
The MX Guardian is an extremely close-range weapon in Warzone 2. Its effective range is from zero to around five meters, so we’ve built this weapon for rushing down enemies.
The MX Guardian is an absolute close-range monster in Warzone 2 with the right attachments.

- Base Perk 1: Overkill
- Base Perk 2: Double Time
- Bonus Perk: Fast Hands
