The shotgun is a weapon that shoots multiple bullets at once, making it easier to kill the enemies. It was added in the Alpha release of the game.With it's large spread and low cooldown, the shotgun is a fearsome weapon in the hands of any enemy, capable of firing 7 to 8 bullets in a single shot. The bullets often travel in pre-defined arcs, some easier to dodge than others. Since a single shot is capable of killing the player, it is always advisable to kill any shotgunners as soon as they are spotted to avoid death.
The shotgun may have two or three shots when acquired by the player.
