Shotguns are weapons that fires wide spread of multiple flechettes on shot. They tend to be effective for crowds and close range fighting, due to their multiple flechettes. However, most shotguns are riskier to use at long distance combat and bossing due to the spread of the flechettes, forcing the player to come closer to the target in order allow the gun to deal the most DPS possible, a risky move.
