Strategy Guide/Tips[edit]

  • Pump Shotgun is considered a better shotgun since it does a lot more damage.


  • This weapon was previously named "Semi-Auto Shotgun". The name was changed to "Tactical Shotgun" in the 1.7.1 patch.
  • In Patch V3.4, the Uncommon/Rare/Epic Tac Shotguns became Common/Uncommon/Rare. Stats remained unchanged.
