The Simple Shotgun Ammo is basic ammunition used by the Shotgun.png Shotgun and Pump-Action Shotgun.png Pump-Action Shotgun. This ammunition fires several pellets that spray out and inflict damage to whatever they hit, which makes it most effective from close range, as there is a higher chance of hitting a target and deals extreme damage if all pellets hit which would be really great for high health opponents who do less close range damage. Keep in mind that this shotgun ammo takes three pellets instead of one, so collect a lot of metal.


Despite the Simple Shotgun Ammo's description saying that it is made in a Hide.png Hide casing, there is no Hide.png Hide needed in the crafting recipe.
