The Spire Assassin's Primal Shotgun is a hitscan weapon, but fires a spread of 10 pellets when both aiming down sights and hipfiring. Aiming down sights tightens the spread of pellets, but also decreases the weapon's rate of fire.
- Damage falloff begins at 7.5 meters (1.45 tiles).
- Damage steadily decreases down to 76% of its maximum at 10 meters (2 tile).
- Damage decreases down to 47% of its maximum at 15 meters (3 tiles).
- It deals damage until 30 meters (6 tiles).
- When someone breaks into your box structure, use the Shotgun to quickly finish them off due to it being the most powerful version of The Primal Shotgun, and it being viable in Close Quarters Combat.
