Appearance

Like it's real life version, the Heavy Shotgun has a gunmetal body, barrel, grip, stock, carry handle, muzzle, and magazine.

Strategy

The Heavy Shotgun is very powerful and best effective at close range. Firing in short bursts can save you a lot of ammunition.

Tips

  • Since it's a shotgun, use this at close range.
  • The weapon has low mobility so it's recommended to switch to a different weapon while moving.
  • Aim for the head to maximize damage.
  • You can wear speed-up helmets. For example, the Great Samurai Helmet to offset its low mobility.
  • Play on small maps. e.g. Pool Party, where this weapon works best.
  • In close ranges, it is possible for one to hold and fire, but never do this before you get near the opponent, as most of the shots wouldn't reach the opponent.
  • Pair this with a triple laser spam set, so you can easily finish off players who you have hit with a laser without spamming your lasers again
  • Have a good aim, it is easy to miss shots with this weapon, since the bullet range is slightly farther than other shotguns

Counters

  • Pickoff its users from long ranges.
  • Try outmaneuvering the enemy by strafing around while firing.
  • During the user into open areas where this weapon is useless gives you advantage
  • As this gun has low capacity, try to waste your opponent's ammo by simply running around and jumping, preferably while using the Ninja Tabi (PG3D) or Berserk Boots.
