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.

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 only upon death; potentially allowing for weapon effectiveness at much longer ranges than conventional shotguns. (Changing weapons or picking up weapons also resets the stack counter back to 0).
