A Shotgun is a type of weapon featured in the Modern Combat series. Unlike other firearms, shotguns fire a volley of multiple pellets at a time, but have a limited range. These traits make shotguns more powerful than any other type of firearm at close range, when a large amount of the pellets will connect with the target, allowing for an instant kill. Pellets disappear after reaching a certain range. Shotguns can be pump-action, where the user must pump the action between shots, or they can be semi-or-fully automatic. Pump-action shotguns usually have a lower rate of fire, but more damage and range, while semi-automatic/fully automatic shotguns usually have a higher rate of fire, but lower range and/or less damage. In most Modern Combat multiplayer modes, Shotguns are primary weapons.
In Modern Combat 3: Fallen Nation, however, they are secondary weapons, and in Modern Combat 4: Zero Hour, shotguns can be equipped with different rounds, ranging from explosive Bird Bomb rounds to Slug rounds.
