The Assault Shotgun is a Primary weapon introduced in the 12.0.0 update.


It has some similarities to a sawed-off shotgun. However, the barrels are silver and have 3 light green stripes at each barrel, a green and brown part between both barrels, a brown grip, a white trigger and a silver and green shoulder stock.



  • Use at close range, since it's a shotgun.
  • Aim for the head to maximize the damage.
  • It has a decent capacity, but it's best rather burst firing in order to save capacity.
  • Do not use this at long range.
  • Consider its mobility. It has a good mobility, but it is rather best wielding a weapon with a better mobility like the Carrot Sword.
  • Use this in close ranged maps like Pool Party.
  • This weapon has the ability to kill enemy players in 2 shots (head).


  • Play in long ranged maps often.
  • Simply move and strafe to dodge the bullets.
  • Pickoff its users from long ranges.
  • Jump and move in random patterns. If you do this, the enemy can't really get a clear shot nor aim perfect at you. This can save you from being hit by a headshot.

Supported Maps

Any close ranged map.

Weapon Setups

Equip a long ranged weapon like the Prototype.

  • (For levels: 12) This is (was, this is because of it being nerfed in the recent updates) one of the most powerful shotguns in the game, having high damage and a decent fire rate with a relatively good capacity, any shotgun-based player can easily kill anything. However, since this is limited to short range combat, equip a good medium-long ranged weapon. (e.g.: Mercenary paired with a Sniper, such as the Laser Crossbow).
