Shotgun Weapon Overview
High Damage At Close Range
Shotguns fire their shots in a spread. This means that they are not very effective at long range. However, firing shotguns at point blank range increases their damage due to all of the pellets connecting with the target.
Low Rate of Fire
Despite having very high damage, shotguns do not fire very fast. You will need to be skilled enough to land a majority of your shots to be effective with this weapon!
Get Close To Your Enemy
Since shotguns are most effective in close range, it is recommended to close the distance between you and your enemy. Landing most if not all of your pellets onto the enemy is a surefire way to easily down them!
Only ADS When Necessary
Aiming down your sights may make you a bit more accurate, but will also lower your movement and aiming speed. Shooting from the hip allows you to react faster to enemy movement, and evade their attacks!
