Shotgun Overview

Weapon Traits

Devastating Damage in Close Combat

Shotguns are among the best choices for close range combat as its high damage per shot and area of effect simply makes it a formidable weapon up close.

Ineffective in Long Range

Shotguns become ineffective anything beyond mid range due to it dealing less damage when used in range. At mid-range, it is average at best.

Easily Connect Shots

All Shotguns fire multiple pellets at once, providing a large area of effect. This makes it easier to connect shots with enemies.

Slow Reload Time

Fully expended Shotguns take between 2.7 to 6.3 seconds to reload, but partial reload takes less time. This can easily turn battles for the worse as enemies may take this reload time to their advantage.

Weapon Tips

Get Up Close and Personal

Take advantage of Shotguns' full potential by engaging enemies in close quarters. Keep your aim on their upper body so as many pellets as possible connect to the target.

Jump Up and Shoot Down

Jump up to prevent enemies from hitting you and shoot down at them in response. You can also get headshots through this, boosting your damage outputs!

Utilize Weapon Combos

Use another weapon while at long range and chip away at an enemy's health and shields. Once you can rush in, swap to your shotgun to finish them off.
