A bunch of scavengers fighting monsters. One of them is holding a shotgun.

Shotguns are ranged weapons that fire the ‘Slugs' ammunition type. They are best used for dealing high damage at close range. Shotgun pellets are uniform in their spread; additionally, shotguns cannot be swapped quickly to avoid the shot timer as of Season 5.

Notes

  • Reload speed indicates the time it takes to reload a shotgun from empty to full.
  • Shotguns have high power, but a very low rate of fire.(Besides the Combat Shotgun ) Intended to be used in close-quarters combat,( besides maybe the Combat Shotgun ) players should attempt to land headshots in order to end fights as quickly as possible.
  • Though cross-hairs show where the spread will hit, players should still rely on the center of the reticule when aiming, otherwise they risk only getting a partial shot in, thus dealing out sometimes much lower damage.
  • Though most weapons benefit from aiming down sights, the shotgun is meant for more quick, haphazard play, and therefore does not benefit nearly as much from aiming down the sights (the only exception being the Heavy Shotgun). Use this fact to your advantage.

Trivia

  • The Heavy Shotgun appears to be a UTAS UTS-15, with a holographic sight.
  • The Uncommon and Rare Pump-Action Shotgun is most likely based off of a Remington 870 Express, while the Epic and Legendary is clearly based off of the SPAS-12 .
  • The Tactical Shotgun appears mainly fictional, mostly made of what appears to be a red plastic. The barrel is sawed off, making it better suited for close quarters.
