Before mentioning the different Shotgun models implemented within the game, it is necessary to explain certain general information that will help you to know the advantages and disadvantages of using this type of weapons.

Hurt

The damage between the 4 available Shotgun models does not vary much from one model to another, only the M1887, It has a damage capacity that stands out a lot compared to the others.

Shotguns are designed to fire at close range, so if you use it in medium or long-range engagements, they'll easily beat your pulse, with almost no (or no) damage done to your enemy.

Of course, if your opponent is very close, it could take a couple of shots from these powerful weapons to kill him.

Firing speed

Firing speed, or rate of fire, is quite low in this type of weapon, as none exceeds 42 points in this feature, and it doesn't have much capacity to store bullets in its cartridges either. Fortunately, this is rewarded with damage done over short distances.

Reload speed

All Shotguns have a fairly poor reload speed. In fact, they have the lowest average among all types of weapons. They even fall behind sniper riflesSo we must be very careful during the times when we are going to use them and aim well so as not to give him the opportunity to kill our enemy.

Accessories

Shotguns, along with weapons for combat body to body, cannot be equipped with any type of accessory, except the SPAS12, but only allows a cartridge to be added to improve its ammunition capacity.

These are points that decrease the use of shotguns in Free Fire, however, that does not mean that they are lethal weapons at close range that can help you get a booyah! if we learn to use them correctly.

The SPAS12 is the second shotgun that causes the most damage, and it is possible to equip it with a cartridge with a higher capacity. Thanks to this, we can face an enemy for a longer amount of time without having to reload.

But only if we have an equipped cartridge, since, otherwise, we will have many problems. Its high power is paid for by having to reload the shotgun after each shot, and this takes time.

This shotgun is based on the Winchester Model 1887 designed by the famous American gunsmith John Moses Browning.

The M1887 is a shotgun that doesn't get much attention from gamers because it can only fire two shots. This causes many to drop it when they get any of the other shotguns, after the first couple of minutes, if they ever take it.

However, this disadvantage is compensated by its high damage, the highest among all the weapons that Free Fire has integrated so far. If we want to lower our enemy's life points as much as possible, or even kill him with one shot, this is the right shotgun, we just have to adapt to the reload time and keep moving.
