An underrated Modern Warfare shotgun currently has the second highest KD ratio in Warzone after receiving massive improvements in the Season 4 Reloaded patch.
While ARs, SMGs, Sniper Rifles, and even LMGs are all popular categories in Warzone, one that is often overlooked is shotguns.
While these weapons certainly don’t lack close range firepower, the majority of players prefer to equip a meta SMG in their secondary slot.
However, that could be about to change as the underrated shotgun’s KD ratio has skyrocketed since the Season 4 Reloaded patch.
This Modern Warfare weapon may have been forgotten by most of the community, but it’s definitely worth testing if you want to dominate opponents at close range.
The VLK Rogue is absolutely deadly up close in Warzone.
VLK Rogue shotgun has second highest KD in Warzone
According to WZRanked, the VLK Rogue’s KD ratio has exploded to 1.39 since the Season 4 Reloaded patch, rising to second place behind the extremely popular H4 Blixen.
While the Modern Warfare shotgun still has an incredibly low success rate of just 0.2%. it may be worth getting ahead of the competition and testing this weapon in your matches.
In the recent update, the VLK Rogue along with a range of other shotguns received a 26% increase in its maximum pellet damage.
This massive buff is probably why the powerful weapon performs so well, ensuring players countless kills in their matches.
Shotguns rarely have a high success rate in Warzone.
In fact, Warzone YouTuber IceManIsaac labeled the VLK as “overpowered” in a recent video, so it’s possible that the weapon’s pick speed could increase significantly very quickly.
Anyway, if you’re going to use the VLK, make sure to use Overkill so you can pair it with a strong AR or SMG.
We recommend the KG M40 or the NZ-41 as both are strong options in the current meta. If you’re struggling to control recoil, it might be worth using the Vargo 52, as the Cold War weapon makes it easy to blast opponents from a distance.
Pairing one of these with the VLK will give you versatile gear that can perform on any map and get you plenty of kills.
