Disambig.png This article is about the weapon type. For the combat skill, see Shotguns.

Shotguns are a close range weapon. They are a great choice for large targets, grouping, or for extra kick. They hit hard with a wide shot pattern.

Notes[edit | edit source]

Weapons stats can be affected by a number of factors. Obvious factors include:

Changes to a specific weapon, either through crafting with augmentations or through weapon mods, are reflected in the inventory entry for that specific item. They don’t appear on the blueprints.

Other explicit but perhaps less obvious factors include:

  • Profiles
  • Skill points invested in Combat Skills (other than the weapon skills) increase the bonuses from weapon skills
  • Equipped armor
  • Passive buffs from melee weapon augmentations are always active even if the melee weapon isn't in use

These effects are reflected in the blueprint stats without explicit notation.

The single-player stats shown on this page are baseline: Initiative I armor, no skill points assigned, no profile active.

Despite being classified as Rare, the single-player Pathfinder Deep Impact only has 2 augmentation slots.

Equipped items have a green check mark Equipped Item Icon.png.

There is a chance that a shotgun purchased, crafted, found, or recovered by a Strike team Item Loot Box will drop a random augmentation on deconstruction. (See Augmentation Drops for odds of recovery). Researchable augmentations not already known will not be recovered. This drop will not be shown on the deconstruct screen and you will have to compare your inventory before/after to determine if an augmentation was dropped.

The number of shotgun kills can be tracked on the Accomplishments tab in the statistics menu.

1The Remnant Scattershot doesn't require reloading; the real firing limitation comes from overheating.

2The Shorty is a multiplayer only weapon and can't be crafted.

3The rarity for the N7 Piranha changes to Ultra Rare in multiplayer.
