Shotgun Stats

The Shotgun is one of the most powerful weapon you can have in the game right now. It is a high-powered 8-shot pump-action shotgun that delivers a heavy punch to the enemies standing in front of it. However, the Shotgun has a slower rate of fire compared to a 9mm pistol, which you probably own by now. It boasts two different animations and a rail slot, enabling you to attach extras such as a laser sight. You can also switch the ammo type you’re using in your Shotgun by looking down and pressing the ‘R’ button when the pop-up appears.
