The Scattergun is a weapon featured in Battlefield Play4Free for all kits. Despite being a shotgun, it is used as a sidearm. It is useful for those lacking close-range capabilities, like the Recon class, without having to change the primary weapon.
The Double-Barrel Shotgun is a weapon featured in Battlefield Hardline.
It is an unlock available after completing the Enforcer Syndicate assignment and is available for the Enforcer class. It is also a Battle Pickup in the Battlefield Hardline: Getaway expansion. It cannot mount or unlock most attachments due to the absence of rails on the weapon, only coming equipped with its default Iron Sights. A Stock can be equipped, which helps to reduce recoil at the cost of some mobility. The Heavy Barrel increases the barrel length, increasing range and accuracy. It also lessens spread while reducing mobility.
The weapon can switch between single-shot and double-shot mode, the latter firing both shots in a rapid burst. It boasts an incredibly high damage model and can fire quickly, but has a small ammo capacity of two shells and extremely high recoil as a trade-off.
- In Battlefield Hardline, the in-game stats incorrectly describes the rate of fire as "pump action".
