Shotguns is a combat skill in Wasteland 2.

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

Shotguns are ideal crowd-clearing weapons. All shotguns have an AoE cone inside which any characters, friendly or enemy, will be damaged. This makes shotguns tricky to use, but there's little that beats the joy of clearing a group of foolishly clustered enemies with a single shot.

Shotguns use medium Action Points, meaning a well-balanced Ranger could take multiple shots per turn, but they do not have great range or Armor Penetration and shots lose effectiveness the farther away an enemy is.

Strengths
  • Can hit multiple enemies at once
  • Moderate AP cost to attack
Weaknesses
  • Short range
  • Low Armor Penetration
  • Cannot use Precision Strikes
