The Straight-Shooter is a surprisingly decent weapon, with many varieties sporting above-average damage and fire rates. They tend to be less accurate and have more recoil than other shotguns using Hyperion barrel, but being a scav weapon, they have much larger magazines.
The type of barrel used in this shotgun counters many of the characteristics typical of a scav weapon, this includes both positive and negative properties. Scav guns usually have low accuracy, high recoil, high damage, and a large magazine size; the Hyperion barrel counters all these properties and also gives this type of shotgun a tighter pellet spread.
White rarity variants of the Straight-Shooter cannot spawn with an elemental capacitor.
The Straight-Shooter is obtained randomly from any suitable loot source.
