A light, smooth-bored gun, often double-barreled, especially designed for firing small shot at short range, and killing small game.
This is a spread fire, but it has two unique properties. One is that it's range is limited. Its shots do not travel to the edge of the screen. The other property is that its shots can destroy enemy bullets. This weapon is found in shooters like 1943, and some others shooters too.
(n.) A shoulder arm designed primarily for shooting a large number of small projectiles at once. The shot spread out, making it easier to hit a moving target. Shotguns are used with birdshot to hunt birds (obviously) and small game. They can also be loaded with buckshot for hunting larger game (up to deer-sized) or anti-personnel use, or slugs, a single projectile loading used for hunting big game. Note that while a shotgun can fire more than one projectile per cartridge, this is different than an automatic weapon, which although it shoots more than one projectile per pull of the trigger, does so in succession.
