New weapon structure
This weapon has the slowest rate of fire of any gun in the game. It even shoots slower than the heavy sniper rifle. However, its damage potential is insanely high. It is an effective weapon for medium and semi-long range. It's quite ineffective at long range because of its bullet spread, but its heavy stopping power also makes it a good sidearm for close quarters. It also takes a very long time to reload so it not used much by beginners who play the game. The new players prefer to spend their money on better and easier to use weapons.
The stats are the same for all weapons excluding a difference between the tiers. They are just reskinned or available as pilfered or stolen versions for the opposite faction.

The long range shotgun can be a difficult weapon to use. Experienced players have advised taking your time to aim and rapidly pop in and out of cover to shoot.
Some players have chosen to use the 'dual long range shotgun setup'. With this setup, the player changes between the two shotguns as quickly as possible in an attempt to double the volume of fire. However, there have been some complaints against using this tactic, and some servers will even kick/ban players who use it.
- Try to keep your enemies in medium range where this shotgun deals most damage output
- The Modern shotguns actually have a slower "cool-down time" than the other shotguns and do considerably more damage than the normal LR shotguns.
