A Double-Barreled Shotgun is a break-open action shotgun that has two barrels lined up in parallel to each other allowing for two shots to be fired in quick succession. Some shotguns can be sawed-off, removing the buttstock and most of the barrel length, giving them very high mobility at the cost of range and accuracy.
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.
Battlefield HardlineEditThe 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.
The Sawed Off Shotgun can do damage out to a remarkable distance for its size. In fact, it can kill out to a distance comparable to the full-sized shotguns used by the Assault kit, thus making it a very powerful weapon.
- The in-game stats for the weapon incorrectly describes the rate of fire as "pump action".
- The Sawed Off Shotgun possesses a secret reload animation based on of the reload of the Super Shotgun in Doom II. The animation frames are staggered to match the look of the original animation and features a unique sound based on the Doom II sound.
