Shotguns are a ranged weapon. Shotguns have the shortest range of the three ranged weapons, but as a benefit feature numerous cone area attacks (Blasts). Shotguns also allow players to summon a variety of turrets to support themselves and groups. Shotguns are well suited for players in damage and support roles.
