Background[edit | edit source]
A combat shotgun is a shotgun that is intended for use in an offensive role, typically by a military force. The earliest shotguns specifically designed for combat were the trench guns or trench shotguns issued in World War I. While limited in range, the multiple projectiles typically used in a shotgun shell provide increased hit probability unmatched by other small arms. Most combat shotguns are fully automatic and have a drum magazine, giving them a definite advantage over break-action double-barrel shotguns.
Characteristics[edit | edit source]
Charon's shotgun is a fully-automatic drum magazine loading shotgun featured in Fallout Shelter. Dealing a minimum of 13 damage per attack, it has the highest damage output for a shotgun in the game.
