As with any shotgun, the Pump Shotgun suffers from significant damage dropoff. Close-range combat is where it truly shines.
Pump Shotgun - Traits & Tips
Pump Shotgun - Weapon Traits
The Pump Shotgun is an immensely strong weapon. Succesfully landing even just half of the pellets can take out half of the enemy's health.
Forgiving Pellet Spread
The Pump Shotgun is able to hit enemies easily thanks to its 10 pellet-spread which can hit even enemies in motion.
Not Fit for Long Range
One of the major drawbacks of the Pump Shotgun is it's restriction to close combat. Shots can only do very little damage from a distance.
Reloading in the middle of the battle can easily turn the battle around as reloading the Pump Shotgun leaves users vulnerable for 3 seconds.
Pump Shotgun - Weapon Tips
Utilize the Pellet Spread
Enemies keep jumping or running? Shoot at their direction with the pump shotgun to be able to damage them through the bullet spread.
Jump and Shoot Downwards
Combine offense with defense by jumping around and shooting enemies with the Pump Shotgun. Shooting downwards makes it easier to land all your shotgun rounds and get cheeky critical hits.
Carry Another Weapon
Mitigate the reload of the Pump Shotgun during combat. Instead of reloading, change weapons to continue shooting.
