Heavy Shotgun: Weapon Tips
Get Close to Enemies
Close the distance between you and the enemy when you're using the Heavy Shotgun. Try to flank them as well so they won't be able to see you coming and you'll get a few free hits.
Jump and Shoot Downwards
When engaging against enemies, jump and shoot downwards to prevent getting hit while maintaining agro. Shooting downwards will also give you some cheeky headshots.
Use It as a Finisher
Coming from mid-range, pressure enemies with another weapon to chip off their health and shields. Once you're close to them, finish them off with the Heavy Shotgun before they could run away.
