Shotguns can refer to both the upgradeable skill and the weapon.

Description[]

Weapon[]

The final word in non-negotiate brutality. the shotgun packs a deadly punch at close range but becomes effectively useless at long range as the cloud of projectiles that it fires spread thin. Aside from its short range, the shotgun has a slow rate of fire and hefty recoil, but its damage and stability when firing on the move makes it invaluable in room to room combat.

Skills[]

Shotgun skill increases damage and recoil control. High levels of skill improve critical hits (making it easier to knock down opponents) and open up the ability to fire devastating multi-shot volleys.

An example of some Shotguns that appear in Alpha Protocol

Weapon[]

Shotguns are a type of weaponry available in Alpha Protocol. Shotguns are a very powerful weapon in Mike's arsenal, killing most hostiles with one or two shots. However, they have several disadvantages: short range, long reload times, and a strong recoil. But if you want a quick kill, they are the way to go. Shotguns can sometimes knock enemies off of their feet. Three groups of shotguns featured are clearly based on the Benelli M3 (with a stock from the newer M4 model,) the SPAS-12, and the Remmington 870 (with M4-style stock and Pictanny rail system.) The UC shotguns are probably based on the Russian Saiga-12 (without the box magazine), which is a shotgun derived from the Kalashnikov design.
