Description
Ammunition Used: 12 guage
Although its effective range is quite short, its combat power makes up for that by having high combat power if you’re able to shoot it at point blank range. The S1897 also suffers greatly from reloading so if you missed your first shot against a player in close combat, its best to seek shelter immediately as you won’t have the time of shooting your enemy again.
In situations where there are multiple enemies around you or you are pursuing fleeing opponents, the S1897 has an edge over the S686 as it can only house two shells at a time. You can still shoot while you’re reloading and since you have five shells to spare, you can use this to your advantage by shooting while you’re caught under fire and reloading your rounds. If you reload after exhausting all the bullets, you will not be able to attack during reloading. It will make you very vulnerable from attacks as it creates additional actions. In a situation where there are enemies nearby, saving a shell in the gun will increase the chance of your survival. By installing a shotgun choke, the pattern will be changed to hit the opponent with more accuracy, making it easier to defeat the enemy. Even if the distance is a farther than usual, with the improved accuracy from the choke, shooting an enemy will be easier. So try to shoot first when you encounter an enemy indoors without having to greatly close the gap between the two of you.
Since the opportunity to attack also increases, use a shotgun choke on the S1897 as it has larger number of bullets than the S686.

S686

Stability Obtainability Rating
A B C
Description
Ammunition Used: 12 guage
Compared to the S1897, the shell count it’s capable of housing is only two, but the speed of fire is superior. If you only have an S686 shotgun in your inventory and there are multiple enemies around you, it’s better to escape as it is impossible for you to go toe to toe with multiple enemies.
Like the S1897, you can easily defeat the enemy by wearing a shotgun choke.
Which type of shotgun you will choose depends on the skill and preference of the player, but the S686 in a one vs one inside a narrow space, will have a slight advantage against its S1897 counterpart.
In the case of possessing instantaneous fire power, S686 is said to be superior.

S12K

S12K In-Depth Weapon Guide

S12K
Magazine Combat Power Effective Range

Stability Obtainability Rating
S C S
Description
Ammunition Used: 12 guage
The S12K has the same number of shells as the S1897 and it also has a higher rate of fire than the S686.
In terms of reloading, the S12K is also superior against the two so you can be aggressive even if you’re a little far from your target. On the other hand, the combat power per shot is lower than that of the other shotguns, and there is also an added disadvantage as you can not install a shotgun shoke on the S12K. The S12K is a powerful weapon recommended for beginners who prefer close-range combats.
