Drum Shotgun: Weapon Tips
Open Fire Only When Close to Enemy
Save your bullets for when it counts. Don't open fire until you get up close and personal with your target to do as much damage with the weapon as possible.
Carry a Mid- to Long-Range Weapon
By itself, the Drum Shotgun limits your engagement range to only close range. Compensate for this by bringing along other weapons that can work outside of its range.
Pull Down Aim to Counter Recoil
When firing, the Drum Shotgun has a bit of a recoil. You can control this by pulling down your aim as you keep shooting.
