Shotgun Weapon Guide
The shotgun is an effective weapon, guaranteed to be used a lot as Morgan delves deeper and deeper into the bowels of Talos-1. It is first found in the Lobby area at least thirty minutes into the game. Morgan finds it near the petrified corpse of Nash Underwood.
This firearm holds a decent amount of bullets. However, it is the stopping power at close range that really sets this firearm apart from other conventional fire arms. It can knock back enemies, felling them, which makes it a great close range weapon.
Throne s4 Tactical Pump Shotgun is designed to be used by security forces for maximum efficacy in close quarters.

Best Used Against
The shotgun is a good weapon for dealing with common enemies such as mimics and phantoms in the game. It requires you to be fairly close to enemies to be effective. Shotgun shells are also not that hard to come by, so having enough ammo is not an issue. A shotgun blast at close range will take a chunk of a phantom’s health, and cause him to stagger and even fall. A simple combo could be to use a disruptor stun gun to stun the beast, blast him with the shot gun, and destroy him with the wrench.
Note: These stats can only be upgraded above level one with their respective Gunsmith skills.
