Modern Warfare Judgement Shotgun | How to get the legendary blueprint

The Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 725 shotgun is an incredibly powerful weapon due to its high stopping power and surprising range; so powerful, in fact, that some players are hoping Infinity Ward nerf the semi-automatic boomstick in a future patch. What if we told you that it’s possible to do one better, though? The Modern Warfare Judgement shotgun is a legendary variant of the 725 and players can’t really do any better than equipping it to their loadout. Here’s how to unlock it so that you can do just that.

How do you unlock the Judgement shotgun in Modern Warfare 2019?

Modern Warfare multiplayer now features a variety of rotating challenges and missions, some of which reward players with blueprints that can be used to wield weapons early. This means that you can get access to many different firearms (which often come bundled with attachments) before reaching the appropriate level to unlock them conventionally.

There are three legendary blueprints available in-game (excluding the XRK M4A1 preorder bonus), but as you’re looking to try and snag yourself a shotgun that’s what we’ll focus on here.
