Strategy[edit | edit source]

  • The Tactical Shotgun is a useful weapon to suppress the enemy at close quarters. Although it is very powerful, its fire rate is ideal to damage the target quickly.
  • Even with a Common Tactical Shotgun, headshots can be deadly for non-shielded players.
  • If a player with a Tactical Shotgun and a player with a Pump Shotgun were to stand directly in front of each other and attempt to shoot each other in the head, the Tactical Shotgun would win with full health and shields and the winner would be 'random' with full health and no shields.

Changes[edit | edit source]

Patch 5.0 (July 7, 2018)
  • Shotguns will now indicate how many pellets hit, visible within the reticle.
  • Adjusted shotgun spread patterns to be consistent with no random variation.
  • Heavy Shotgun now fires 10 pellets rather than 5.
    • Maximum damage for the Heavy Shotgun remains unchanged.
  • After firing a shotgun, another shotgun cannot be fired for a very short time.

Patch 4.5 (June 27, 2018)

  • Weapon damage to structures now correctly scales with rarity.
  • Shotgun damage to structures has been reduced by 50% for Pump Shotgun, and 25% for both Tactical Shotgun and Heavy Shotgun.

Hotfix (6 June, 2018)

  • Headshot multiplier reduced from 2.5 to 2.0

Patch 4.3 (30 May, 2018)

Bug Fix
  • Shotgun fire adjusted to help alleviate situations where it would hit world objects instead of players.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Battle Royale Tactical Shotgun appears as a red version of the Save the World guns Enforcer and Longarm Enforcer.
  • In Patch 3.3, the rarities of all Tactical Shotguns were changed from Uncommon, Rare and Epic to Common, Uncommon and Rare.
  • Although the Heavy and Double Barrel Shotguns are semi-automatic, the Tactical Shotgun has the fastest firing rate, despite being a pump-action shotgun.
  • The Tactical Shotgun has a small panel that seems to be playing "Snake" on its screen.
  • The side of the gun reads "Bossmerg 12", a play of the word Mossberg, a real-life weapons manufacturer. "12" means it is chambered for 12-gauge shotgun cartridges.
