The hunting shotgun is a double-barrelled shotgun capable of firing both barrels at once for a short, powerful blast of damage. Each shot fires 5 pellets each, each pellet dealing more damage than any other shotgun in the game. Its disadvantage is that it has the widest spread of any shotgun, and is thus suited to very close range and not much beyond that. It also cannot be reloaded until both shots are fired.

It is a cost-effective finisher weapon.

Strategy

  • Due to its very high spread, it is important that this shotgun be used at very close range, preferably directly into the torso or towards the neck/head area. Do not try to use over long ranges since the spread makes it all but useless.
