The pump shotgun is a short range, high damage weapon known for its huge stopping power, capable of stunning any but the largest creatures. With a decent firerate and good accuracy, its other alternative is the chain shotgun.

Acquisition

Pump shotguns can be crafted at a machining table once the Gunsmithing research has been completed; from Steel 60 Steel, Component 3 Componentss and 12,000 ticks (3.33 mins) of work. A crafting skill of at least 5 is required.

Pump shotguns can also be purchased from outlander and orbital combat suppliers, outlander settlements, or obtained from the following raider kinds:

Raider Kind Chance Average Quality Health
Scavenger Gunner 11.65% Normal 40-110%
Pirate Gunner 22.62% Normal 70-230%
Town Guard 18.90% Normal 60-200%
Mercenary Gunner 12.13% Normal 70-320%
Ancient Soldier 9.50% Normal 100%

Analysis

With high per-shot damage, excellent accuracy (technically beating the bolt-action rifle), and decent firerate, the pump shotgun is a powerful weapon. The pump shotgun also has an amazing stopping power, able to stagger every pawn kind except the ElephantMegaslothThrumboCenturion Content added by the Biotech DLCDiabolus Content added by the Biotech DLCWar queen Content added by the Biotech DLC. But, as a shotgun, its range is lacking. Even hand-thrown pila out-range a pump shotgun, let alone low-tier firearms such as the revolver. Armor penetration is also quite poor, being in a similar league to the autopistol and greatbow.

In terms of raw damage, the pump shotgun is the strongest single-burst weapon outside of explosives. Overall damage output falls behind cheaper burst-firing weapons such as the machine pistol, though the shotgun gains an slight advantage towards maximum range. As it fires a single shot, pump shotguns are more likely to destroy/severely damage limbs and organs. Chain shotguns are an overall upgrade, with a much higher DPS due to its 3-shot burst.

All-in-all, the pump shotgun is best suited as a close-quarters offensive weapon, such as with drop pods or infestations. The high stopping power also make it a great support weapon, staggering pawns that approach. Keep a shotgun (pump or chain) in your rec room for those days when mechs drop in right on top of you. Remember that pawns can't fire guns in melee, even if its a shotgun.

Stats

Against an unarmored human, a pump shotgun can kill with 3 hits to the torso, 2 hits to the head or neck, or 1 hit to the brain; cripple or destroy limbs in 2 hits; and destroy eyes and digits with a single hit. It'll generally take around 4 hits (~10.3 seconds average) to incapacitate that human from pain shock.

Overall, the pump shotgun is best paired with a careful shooter up to level 6, then with a trigger-happy shooter beyond that point.

    Pump shotgun vs. comparable weapons

    This section goes over how well the pump shotgun fares against comparable weapons (similar value, tech level or similar characteristics) in 1 vs. 1 combat.

    Methodology

    • All testing is semi-automated which allows for large sample sizes to be gathered per set of results with ease
    • All pawns have skill levels of 14 in ranged and melee
    • No pawns have any traits that affect combat performance
    • All pawns are of at least 18 years of age and completely healthy
    • Pawns are divided by walls to prevent stray shots from skewing results in any way
    • Weather is always kept clear
    • No cover is used for either team

    Results in the tables below are the percentages of battles that pump shotguns either won or tied against the weapon listed in the first column of said tables, with a sample size of 2,000 battles per result. Higher percentages are better.

    Unarmored

    For the unarmored testing, all pawns wore normal quality plainleather pants, plainleather button-down shirts, plainleather dusters and plainleather cowboy hats.

    Graphs

    The graphs assume a normal quality pump shotgun against an adult human that's out in the open in clear weather. For DPS, projectile speed has also been factored into the equation, with the weighting based on the base amount of attacks that it'll take to put the aforementioned target into pain shock.
