The shotgun. A perfect example of beginner weapons done WRONG.
The shotgun, as usual is best used at close range. However it is very punishing if you don't have good aim. It suffers at the median of close and long range and is horrible a very bad shotgun, because some maps focus on medium range rather than long range.
- High Maximum damage.
- Very punishing if you don't have good aim.
- Very slow firerate.
Overall, don't use this shotgun. It is only effective at ranges that can be considered "point blank". If you want a challenge, this is the gun for you.
