Shotguns are ranged weapons. All Shotguns use Shells as their choice for ammo and are extremely useful at close range. They usually have a headshot multiplier from 1.25x to 2.5x, and they're effective at close range, rarely at close-to-mid-range.

Information[edit | edit source]

Obtaining

All Shotguns can be obtained by Looting Chests or Supply Drops. They can also naturally appear as floor loot. Though, Kit's Charge Shotgun (Mythic) can only be obtained by defeating Kit at Catty Corner.

Tool

All Shotguns can destroy structures, but they aren't really useful for that as they have lower damage against them. 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.

Reloading

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.

ADS

The Drum Shotgun have the least accuracy of all Shotgun while theCombat Shotgun have the most accuracy.

The reticle for the weapons is instead replaced with a special variant for Shotguns. It shows the potential area where they can inflict damage. And once bullets hit, red dots will appear in it to indicate which pellets hit.

DPS

Most of the Shotguns have very low DPS, but not every single one. The highest DPS of the Shotguns is the Legendary Double Barrel Shotgun (228), while the lowest is the Common Pump Shotgun with just 49.

Damage

Shotguns deals High damage. The one with the least damage is the Common Drum Shotgun (45), while the one with the most damage is the Mythic Charge Shotgun (155), but due to the Charge Mechanic, we also consider the Legendary Double Barrel Shotgun (120).

Fire Rate

Almost every Shotgun fires slowly. The quickest Shotgun is the Drum Shotgun, firing 4 bullets every second. While the slowest one is the Pump Shotgun, firing only 0.7 bullets per second.

Magazine Size

All Shotguns have a magazine range of 2-12, typically 5. The Double Barrel Shotgun has the lowest magazine of only 2, and the Drum Shotgun has the highest magazine of 12.

Range

All Shotguns are extremely great at close range battles, following a SMG. The Combat Shotgun is the most effective Shotgun at Long Range, however the Heavy Shotgun is more effective at Medium Range than the Combat Shotgun. Anyway, the Drum Shotgun is the most ineffective Shotgun at close-to-mid-range, due to it's high Damage Fall-Off.
