The shotgun is very similar to that of other games. It shoots several bullets with a high spread, so it does very high damage at close range, but becomes very inaccurate at distance. It is also very useful to knock opponents out after you already hit them hard with a rocket or other projectile, and subsequently closed to a distance because it's hard to miss with the shotgun at close range. The primary fire mode fires once with a short reload, while the secondary fire mode shoots three very quick shots, but with a long reload afterwards. The secondary firemode also has a higher spread so the primary is useful for a longer distance then the secondary firemode. The shotgun uses pellet ammo which is not shared with any other weapons.
The shotgun is one of your start weapons. It is most useful in close to mid range fights. Use the secondary fire only if you are sure you'll hit your target because it takes longer to reload your gun and fire again.
