The Expedite 12 is a semi-automatic shotgun available in Modern Warfare 2. Like all shotguns, it’s most effective when you are up close and personal with your enemies.

The gun is based on the Benelli M4 Super 90, a French-manufactured semi-automatic shotgun commonly used by law enforcement. It is also the same M1014 from previous installments in the franchise, going back to Call of Duty 4.

To unlock the Expedite 12 semi-automatic shotgun, you must reach level 9.

This guide has been written to guide you about the best class setups for Expedite 12, focusing on destroying your enemies in a CQC environment.  

Best Expedite 12 loadout


  • Laser: 1MW Quick Fire Laser
  • Stock: Resonance Stock Collapsed
  • Rear Grip: Schlager Void Grip
  • Ammunition: 12 Gauge Dragon’s Breath
  • Bolt: Expedite L-Bolt

Expedite 12 is designed for close-range combat. We will focus our class setup towards CQC and aggressive playstyle.

The 1MW Quick Fire Laser and Schlager Void Grip combination provides great aim-down sight speed. Additionally, the attached rear grip boosts the sprint to fire speed, making Expedite 12 highly competitive in close-range combat.

Resonance Stock Collapsed is the perfect attachment in this class to improve mobility further. It provides much-needed aim down sight, sprint to fire, and movement speed. Additionally, it increases the hip recoil control of Expedite 12.

The 12 Gauge Dragon’s Breath boosts the incendiary damage, inflicting damage over the period. Lastly, Expedite L-Bolt will strengthen the fire rate for our class.

Best secondary weapon

The best secondary weapon with Expedite 12 is Desert Eagle, which provides a high level of damage in mid-range shots. To overcome the range barrier, it is vital to go with an Overkill perk. This will allow you to have another primary weapon, such as an M16 or M4. You can kill enemies at every range with this set of weapons.

Best perks and equipment

The first base perk essential for this class is Overkill, as mentioned earlier, to have a second primary weapon. Another base perk is Double Time, providing extra crouch movement speed and a 2x boost in the tactical sprint.

The Fast Hands, as a Bonus perk, improve the reload and use of equipment speed, which is much needed for Expedite 12 class.

To be efficient using Expedite 12, you need invisibility, provided by the ultimate Ghost perk. You will be undetectable and have the opportunity to get close to the enemies and unleash the power of Expedite 12 on enemies.

  • Base Perk 1: Double Time
  • Base Perk 2: Overkill
  • Bonus Perk: Fast Hands
  • Ultimate Perk: Ghost

The Stun and Frag grenades are a perfect fit for Expedite 12 class. Both will help gain control over the sides and more eliminations, and stunned enemies and low-health enemies are easy to take down.

The Portable Radar will increase the information on the location of enemies, helping you set perfect traps and surprise the enemies by flanking them, dealing maximum damage to the enemy squads.

  • Tactical: Stun Grenade
  • Lethal: Frag Grenade
  • Field Upgrade: Portable Radar
