The SMART cores of the Buckshot are set up as a neural interface. It can learn from past experience and allows for a gradual increase in accuracy for each enemy that is killed. This ability lasts until the user is killed.
The Buckshot is a powerful fully automatic shotgun sporting a large drum magazine of up to 25 rounds coupled with maximum armor penetration. It possesses a solid rate of fire, and manageable recoil even when firing full-auto, making it a versatile and deadly shotgun. Its statistical profile is similar to that of the Sering 9, but superior in most areas and with close to twice the magazine capacity (though with a slight drawback in mobility over the Sering 9).
The unique mechanic of the weapon allows each kill to increase accuracy by 20%, lowering the initial shot spread, which can be stacked up to 10 times, and expiring upon death; potentially allowing for weapon effectiveness at much longer ranges than conventional shotguns. (However, it should also be noted that swapping to a secondary weapon or picking up dropped weapons also resets the stack counter back to 0).
