The RIA 52 Supernovae is a thermal semi-auto shotgun made by Rubicon. It's high ammo cost is justified by it's equally high damage when factoring in damage over time and impact damage. The higher-than-average pellet count of 7 also boosts the damage of the gun further.
The notably high time it takes for the damage over time to reach full potential makes getting Tenacious better for bosses, but leaves getting Deadly open also. Skeletonized is also a rather tempting option with a heavy movement penalty of 40%, but depending on what your playstyle is, it may not be needed.
A high fire rate limit for a semi-auto gun with a clip of 30 allows for spamming bullets into small crowds thanks to it's pierce of 2. Unlike other shotguns, the cone of spread with the pellets is around 1/3 of the other shotguns making longer-range combat with say, a boss, easier.
- The bullet tracers are colored a red-orange
- It is the heaviest shotgun, and the only shotgun to have 7 pellets
