There are 4 Shotguns in Warzone 2 which includes Lockwood 300, Expedite 12, Bryson 800, and Bryson 890. A Shotgun should be ideal in recoil, mobility, spread control, and of course damage to be able to call the best one.

Hence, let us take a look at the stats of these 2 best Shotguns to use in Season 1 of Warzone 2.
Lockwood 300 has the highest damage among all the Shotguns in this game as it absolutely dominates in close-range battles decimating opponents. The biggest drawback it holds is that it only fires 2 bullets per round as compared to other Shotguns packed with 7-8 bullets per magazine. It has decent recoil control and better spread which is fine until the enemy is within the range of this weapon.
On the other hand, Bryson 800 is packed with 8 rounds per magazine before it reloads again. Comparing it with Lockwood 300, Bryson 800 is slightly better because it brings higher recoil control and mobility. Additionally, it is possible to increase the range of the Bryson 800 by using the correct attachments. Lockwood 300 can be used if you are playing solo matches as you can reload after eliminating a single enemy.
