It has high damage, but low fire rate and has the second farthest range of all shotguns. It provides similar stats to the Defriender, only better range, damage, and ammo. It is therefore, an improved version of the Defriender. It is a great overall weapon, and is unsurpassed in its individual category.
It returns for the second game and was drastically changed. It is usable by the General and the Juggernaut. Now it is better focused in damage, but will be slow and has low ammo. However, with a correct attachment, it would be lethal at close range (or at mid range if was enhanced with more range). It's usually middle of the row when it comes to the pump-action shotguns; it tends to shoot faster than the Judgement, as well as possessing one additional round in the magazine, but it has worse damage. It generally has better damage than the R870, but has a worse rate of fire.
