Strategy[edit | edit source]
- Although the Heavy Shotgun is slightly less powerful than the Pump Shotgun, it makes up for it with its increased range and fire rate.
- Although the Heavy Shotgun's fire rate is slower than the Tactical Shotgun's, and it deals nearly the same body shot damage, it has an larger headshot multiplier of 2.5 (In comparison to 2.0), and it’s increased range lets it be used at longer ranges where the other Shotguns would be ineffective. However, despite it’s increased headshot multiplier, it still fails to do 200 damage on a headshot.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The weapon bears loose resemblance to the UTAS UTS-15 shotgun with a more traditional looking configuration and elements similar to the SPAS-12 pump design, featuring a railed top with a red dot sight and traditional stock.
- Before Patch 5.0, many players preferred to Double-Heavy as opposed to Double-Pumping due to the decreased swapping time between two Heavy Shotguns.
