Scatterguns boast high damage, with a fire rate contingent on how fast the wielder can pull the trigger. With its moderate-to-low accuracy, the Scattergun serves as a close range skirmishing weapon. However, many Scatterguns have a very small clip size of one or two shots per clip, meaning frequent reloads. Possessing the Tediore barrel, it's usually outclassed by other Jakobs shotguns due to low damage potential from the low pellet count. It's even outclassed by Longrider shotguns due to mediocre accuracy when compared to a Longrider shooting the same pellet count.
The Scattergun is obtained randomly from any suitable loot source.
