A Shotgun is a weapon designed chiefly to fire rounds loaded
800px-Franchi SPAS-12 Shotgun

The SPAS-12 is a combination of a pump-action and a semi-automatic shotgun.

with multiple small metal projectiles at once. This makes them devastating and ruinous at close range but gives them a very short effective distance. Shotguns generally fall into numerous classes, including pump-action; lever-action; break-open; bolt-action; semi-auto and even fully automatic models. Other types of ammunition have been adapted and manufactured for them, including solid slugs, sub-caliber saboted projectiles, flechettes, and a slew of 'less-lethal' rounds loaded with rubber projectiles or chemical projectiles.

Advantages Edit

  • Powerful up close
  • Fast movement and aiming
  • Wide variety of ammunition

Limitations Edit

  • Slow rate of fire (for non-automatic versions)
  • Very short effective range
  • Little stopping power
  • Sluggish reload animations

Ammunition TypesEdit

Pump-ActionEdit

A Pump-action shotgun mainly features spent shells being extracted and fresh ones being chambered via mechanical cycling, as opposed to a break action. The weapon has a single barrel above a tube magazine into which shells are inserted. New shells are chambered by pulling a pump handle (often called the fore-end) attached to the tube magazine toward the user, then pushing it back into place to chamber the cartridge. However, there are magazine-fed pump shotguns such as the NOR982 which chamber new shells from a box magazine.

Semi-AutomaticEdit

A semi-automatic shotgun is one that is able to fire a cartridge after every trigger squeeze, without any manual chambering of another round being required. The weapon uses the force of the gas (created by the accelerated burning of the propellant) not just to propel the wadding which pushes the shot down the barrel, but also to cycle the action, eject the empty shell and load another round.

Battlefield 1942Edit

The Browning Auto 5 is exclusive to only the Special Air Service Engineer Kit in Battlefield 1942: Secret Weapons of WWII.

Fully-AutomaticEdit

An Automatic Shotgun uses some of the energy of each shot to automatically cycle the action and load a new round. It will fire repeatedly until the trigger is released or ammunition runs out. Automatic shotguns have a very limited range, but provide tremendous firepower at close range.

Trivia Edit

  • Shotguns can only utilize their iron sights in a few installments in the Battlefield Series.
  • In Battlefield: Bad Company 2, the amount of shots fired in the weapon stats are counted by the pellets shot, not the actual shots. This can drastically lower accuracy statistics.
  • In Battlefield 3, shotgun shells change color depending on which faction is using them; red shells for the US Marines, and green shells for the Russian Ground Forces.
