A DataDyne weapon manufactured for security forces. A nine-cartridge magazine combined with single or double fire modes make it a dangerous close-quarters weapon.
The Shotgun is a close-range weapon created by dataDyne, featured in Perfect Dark.


As a shotgun, it is effective only at close ranges. Because each shell must be loaded individually, the reload time depends on the number of shells already loaded.

The secondary function fires two shells in quick succession, which is very effective if both rounds hit, but can be overkill in most situations, and will burn through ammo faster which, when combined with the slow reload, can cause problems.
