"Shotguns" are ranged weapons that come in pump-action, heavy, and break-action variants. All shotguns use Shells 'n' Slugs as their choice of ammo and are extremely powerful at close range, but some can reach farther ranges (not exact medium range).

Obtaining[edit | edit source]

All Shotguns can be obtained by Looting Chests or Supply Drops. They can also naturally appear as floor loot.

Usage[edit | edit source]

Weapon[edit | edit source]

Pressing "Fire" will successfully shoot out a shell . Once shot, the weapons will lose some ammo and will have to be reloaded if it drops to zero. The average damage of all Shotguns is about 94.409 damage. The Legendary Double Barrel Shotgun has the most damage of 120.

Tool[edit | edit source]

All Shotguns can destroy structures, but they aren't really useful for that. However, The Heavy and Double Barrel Shotguns are extremely powerful against structures. Tactical Shotguns are in between, while Pumps are the worst to use against structures.

Fire Rate[edit | edit source]

Shotguns normally have a slow fire rate compared to other weapons. The fastest shotgun in the game is the Drum Shotgun

Reloading[edit | edit source]

The average reloading time for all Shotguns is about 4.818 seconds. The Common Tactical Shotgun is the slowest weapon with 6.3 seconds to reload, while surprisingly the Legendary and Epic Double Barrel is the fastest with 2.7 seconds. All Shotguns, except the Double Barrel and Drum, can shoot even when reloading.

The average magazine side for all shotguns is 7.33 seconds. The Double Barrel Shotgun have the least magazine of all Shotguns, with 2, and Drum Shotgun have the most magazine of all Shotguns, with 12 bullets.

Ammo Usage[edit | edit source]

All Shotguns use Shells 'n' Slugs for the ammo.

Magazine Size[edit | edit source]

Typically, shotguns have a really low round size of around 5-8. The highest magazine for the class is 12 (Drum Shotgun) while the lowest is 2 (Double Barrel).

ADS[edit | edit source]
