CONTEMPORARY SHOTGUNS

Derived from hunting weapons, shotguns don't fire a single projectile,but a swarm of smaller projectiles. The barrel isn't rifled, because the projectile swarm can't use the stabilizing effect of projectile rotation.
The pump or slide action is used to feed in a new cartridge, but it needs two hands for use, so semi-automatic systems are also used. Shotgun have many advantages. Their large size and big bore give them a significant psychological effet, and the spreading of the shots (particularly with short barrels) makes them "area weapons", making targeting easier. Their main drawbacks are size and weight, low ammo capacity, short range and poor armor penetration. The last two can somehow be offset by using specialty rounds, but they are often of dubious legality and generally have no spreading.
Common variations are shorter barrel and pistol grip (sometimes with a folding stock) for concealment and use in enclosed spaces, like a car. But they make the weapond difficult to contol, particularly with the larger bore size.

Daewoo USAS-12

Reliability : standard
Range : 50 meters
Cost : 600 eb
Reference : Cyberpunk 2021
Length : 96 cm
Country : Korea
Originally a joint design between Daewoo and the American company of Atchisson, the USAS-12 was classified as a Class III destructive device in the US and Atchisson dropped out of the partnership, feeling there would be little or no US sales. The original design was the Daewoo/Atchisson AA-12 Assault Shotgun, a selective fire shotgun designed to fire standard as well as exotic ammunition. This was later modified by Daewoo in the hopes of US sales and renamed the USAS-12, but the large ammunition capacity of the magazines dashed hopes of this too. Both weapons can be fed by large capacity box or drum magazines. The weapon is designed like an assault rifle, and bears a superficial resemblance to the M-16. The low rate of fire helps keep recoil low, especially during automatic fire.

Shotguns are always popular weapons, and sawing off the barrel for a greater spread at close range is nothing new. This weapon takes it to the extreme. Most shotguns are shaved to the choke, this shotgun has actually had the choke shortened, dropping its ammo capacity to 2, but also enabling faster reloads and more concealability, and to further the conceivability factor, the stock has also been removed.

In the terms of stopping power and short range firepower in general the 12 gauge shotguns are hard to beat, but most shotguns of conventional design are too long or has too small magazines for confined spaces operations, so designers of the Techno Arms developed a new concept of the shotgun, mixing the concept of the compact submachine gun and the concept of the pump shotgun.
