A shotgun is a firearm which fires shells filled with small pellets called shot, or a solid projectile called a slug. Shot shells allow a shotgun to impact damage over a wide area than that of a standard bullet.
All weapons are scored based on five common factors shared by all weapons. The scores are then averaged, resulting in the final overall score for the weapon. For a more in-depth review of how we score weapons, please refer to ourscoring chart.
All weapons are scored within their own category. Please do not compare a Primary weapon to a Secondary or vice versa.
