It's a two handed weapon.
The shotgun is very quick and effective close range weapon. Up close, the weapon does an extremely large amount of damage and will kill a usual enemy in 1 shot. It will kill elites in 2 or 3 depending on distance and where the shot is aimed. The shotgun has a greater range than the Sawed-Off Shotgun but still isn't very effective at longer range. It does just as much damage as the sawed-off shotgun, but it's more commonly found. Its brute power as well as a slight increase in range over its sawed-off counterpart means that clearing out guards on the Mile High Club is almost too easy. The power is also great for blasting people off Motorcycles and ATVs, so this can be great for pursuits when you have an extra few faction members to help you or whilst you're on the Stunt position of a moving vehicle. Also its pellet spread is more narrow than the Sawed-Off variant so blasting individual targets won't be much of a problem. One blast should take out objects like gas pumps, water towers, transformers, generators and maybe broadcast towers within two shots, depending on the distance as the range of the shotgun isn't very far.
Upgrade the shotgun at the Black Market to increase the amount of ammunition it holds and to increase its range and amount of pellets per shell. The pellet increase doesn't help against enemies though. Just sabotage destructible objects.
