A shotgun is a close range but powerful gun featured in most FPS and TPS. Most of these shotguns have more or less ammo, closer or longer ranges, and even be stronger or weaker. When it comes to hoards of enemies, the spread of bullets can damage multiple enemies at once, and possibly kill them. In TF2, the shotgun can be used by The Soldier, The Pyro, The Engineer, and The Heavy. The Scout however has a Scattergun, which is a semi auto shotgun but for this category, it doesn't count.
