A Shotgun is a weapon designed chiefly to fire rounds loaded
800px-Franchi SPAS-12 Shotgun

The SPAS-12 is a combination of a pump-action and a semi-automatic shotgun.

with multiple small metal projectiles at once. Other types of ammunition have been adapted and manufactured for them, including solid slugs, sub-caliber saboted projectiles, flechettes, and a slew of 'less-lethal' rounds loaded with rubber projectiles or chemical projectiles.

Ammunition Types

Pump-Action

A Pump-action Shotguns are a class of shotgun where spent shells are extracted and fresh ones are chambered. The weapon has a single barrel above a tube magazine into which shells are inserted. New shells are chambered by pulling a pump handle (often called the fore-end) attached to the tube magazine toward the user, then pushing it back into place to chamber the cartridge. However, there are magazine-fed pump shotguns such as the NOR982 which chamber new shells from a box magazine.

Semi-Automatic

A semi-automatic shotgun is a class of shotgun that is able to fire a cartridge after every trigger squeeze, without any manual chambering of another round being required. The weapon uses the force of the gas (created by the accelerated burning of the propellant) not just to propel the wadding which pushes the shot down the barrel, but also to cycle the action, eject the empty shell and load another round.

Battlefield 1942

The Browning Auto 5 is exclusive to only the Special Air Service Engineer Kit in Battlefield 1942: Secret Weapons of WWII.

Fully-Automatic

An Automatic Shotgun is a class of shotguns that uses some of the energy of each shot to automatically cycle the action and load a new round. It will fire repeatedly until the trigger is released or ammunition runs out. Automatic shotguns have a very limited range, but provide tremendous firepower at close range.

Tactics

  • Shotguns are very effective at close range, and can repel melee attackers in one hit. Only submachine guns challenge the shotgun at close range.
  • A skilled shotgun user can quickly eliminate an enemy squad at close range, a feat only matched by machine guns at long range, and grenades.
  • An underslung shotgun attachment can help assault rifle users conserve ammo for more distant engagements.
  • As with other weapons, the shotgun receives a damage bonus for headshots.
  • Shotguns can still inflict serious damage at mid range, though many weapons ramp down significantly.

Trivia

  • Shotguns can only utilize their iron sights in a few installments in the Battlefield Series.
  • In Battlefield: Bad Company 2, the amount of shots fired in the weapon stats are counted by the pellets shot, not the actual shots.
  • In Battlefield 3, shotgun shells change color depending on which faction is using them; red shells for the US Marines, and green shells for the Russian Ground Forces.
