Very powerful up close, but less reliable with range.
— In-game Description

The Shotgun is a short ranged mid tier weapon. The Shotgun fires the Simple Shotgun Ammo. This shotgun and the Pump-Action Shotgun are the only weapons to use this type of ammunition. With two barrels, you better make your 2 shots count! With the ability to 2 shot a Triceratops, the Shotgun is a very potent weapon at short ranges. Compared to the Longneck Rifle, the Shotgun is comparable for damage and can be used effectively as a PvP weapon. Unlike most other firearms, the Shotgun cannot accept any attachments.
