Overview[edit | edit source]
The Assault Shotgun is a primary weapon that can be picked up during gameplay. As a powerful tier 3 weapon, it often does not show up until the last swarm battle of a campaign.
Performance[edit | edit source]
As a part of the shotgun class, it has extremely high stopping power and damage at close range but is poor at long range and sniping situations.
The base amount of rounds that it can hold is 12 at no upgrades, and at a max upgrade, it holds 20, making it the op weapon in almost every can as most zombies are close-range combat and being a shotgun. It is powerful enough to stop a Bull or kill an Infector as they are the most dangerous long-range enemies.
One of the best weapons in the entire game for stopping swarms from towering up, due to the high damage and stopping power of shotguns in general. It also penetrates hordes quite easily.
