The Shotgun turret features the highest damage of any turret, tied with the rocket turret. Combined with its high rate of fire, its damage output is the highest off all turrets, and it can potentially kill an opponent in 3 hits or less. It is the only turret with a good chance of winning a head-on encounter with an opponent by itself. 2 shotgun turrets can be placed on the map at once (though deployment cost is high), and like the Stun turret, they can also be placed on walls or low-hanging ceilings. The Shotgun turret has at least one major downside, which is its very low range - the lowest of any turret, as well as its shot spread. The Shotgun turret is also unable to be evolved.
Overall, the Shotgun turret is a candidate for the best turret in the game in smaller maps such as Streets or cramped indoor sections (where placing it on ceilings can be used to surprise enemies and score headshots). However in larger maps like Scramble or open spaces, the Sniper turret may be more effective.
