In-Game DescriptionEdit

"Designed for close-range combat, the shotgun is a spread weapon with tremendous stopping power. Unlike traditional cyclotron designs, a walled centrifugal wall is used to simultaneously shunt dozens of plasma charges, generating a wide-pattern 'kill spread' that is lethal over short distances.

The excessive recoil produced by each discharge is absorbed by the pneumatic armature, allowing the weapon to be fired repeatedly without significant injury to the user. The operator controlled crank-action flushes coolant through the interior well before cycling additional rounds into the chamber."

The shotgun was designed by Cero Dron, whose logo can be found on the plate covering the armature (not visible in image).

OverviewEdit

The shotgun is characterized by its high fire rate and low accuracy. It is not advised to use it at range, as the shot will disperse too far to do much damage. In order to use the weapon effectively, the user must be as close to the target -preferably at point-blank range- as possible.

The shotgun is a favourite of scout units, who will often lie in wait behind corners, on rooftops, or behind cover; before trying to either sneak up behind or rush the target before they can respond.

In terms of accuracy reduction, the shotgun only has spread, which can be reduced by training in Shotgun Operation.

As a Hybrid Weapon, shotguns have a +10% damage bonus against shields, and a -10% damage penalty against armour.
