History
Introduced Patch 13.00
Last Adjustment Patch 14.00
Vaulted Patch 14.4

Charge Shotgun was a shotgun in Battle Royale that is available in Common, Uncommon, Rare, Epic, Legendary and Mythic variants. It has a headshot multiplier of x1.5 and uses Shells. The shotgun was added to the game in place of the Pump Shotgun, which was vaulted in the same patch.

It is a unique shotgun, being the first of it's kind to have to be charged to deal more damage. It can be charged by holding down the fire button, taking 1.7 seconds to fully charge. However it can be used like a regular shotgun.

For the moment, the Charge Shotgun hasn't been added to the Creative inventory yet, but it can be found from opening random chests in Creative (Fill).

The magazine size for the Epic and Legendary variants has been increased from 3 to 4 in Patch 13.20. All variants' reload time have also been decreased (buffed) to 4.8/4.6/4.4/4.2/4.0/3.8.

The Mythic Kit's Charge Shotgun was vaulted in Patch 14.00, However Kit's Charge Shotgun can still be obtained on iOS and macOS devices as those platforms are stuck on Patch 13.40.

As of Patch 14.00, the Charge Shotgun is the only shotgun to have never been vaulted before as the Tactical Shotgun was vaulted, also since this patch, the Charge Shotgun can be obtained in Creative by a glitch.

The Charge shotgun has been vaulted for the first time on Patch 14.4.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Charge Shotgun is the second shotgun to replace the Pump Shotgun, as the Combat Shotgun did the same in Season 9.
  • It is the second weapon in all of Battle Royale to have to be charged to fire, with the first being the Zapotron from Season 1.
  • This is the first Shotgun to be available in all six rarities.
  • The Charge Shotgun has no true world counterpart, but appears to be a heavily modified air-gun that fires shotgun shells, which is what the pressure gauge and air tank are for, to store and charge air in order for the shotgun to be fired.
    • It's also the fourth shotgun to be available in Common, Uncommon and Rare rarities, the first three being the Pump Shotgun, Tactical Shotgun and Drum Shotgun.
    • It's the only shotgun that has a Mythic variant.
  • It's the only shotgun and weapon that has 3 different sizes of magazines. Common - Rare variants have 3, Epic and Legendary variants have 4 and the Mythic has 5.
    • The Common, Uncommon and Rare variants have the 2nd smallest shotgun magazine size (3), only beaten by the Double Barrel Shotgun’s 2 shell magazine.
  • The Charge Shotgun uses the equip and reload sounds of a Common - Rare Tactical Shotgun, except for the charging and firing sounds.
  • If charged enough, this weapon can deal up to 155 damage for the Mythic variant. With a headshot, it can deal up to 232.
  • The Charge Shotgun is slightly faster than the Pump Shotgun, Charge's 0.85 to Pump's 0.7. Though charging takes 1.7 seconds to fully charge.
