  • Weapon will create six holes in scenery and objects such as walls, regardless of having multishot on, even though seven are actually registered on enemies, this includes multishot which shoots more pellets but only registers six holes regardless. Most likely to reduce lag.
  • Listed firing rate does not reflect the actual firing rate. The actual fire rate is lower than 8.33 shots/seconds.
  • The damage listed is actually the combination of all seven pellets' damage values. The actual damage per pellet is 32 impact, 4 puncture, and 4 slash.


  • Even a maxed Slip Magazine12?cb=20190608095452 Slip Magazine can only give a maximum magazine size of 5.
    • It is recommended to use Ice Storm12?cb=20190608095452 Ice Storm instead of Slip Magazine, as both mods have the same amount of mod capacities required, and that maxed Ice Storm can give a maximum magazine size of 6.

Patch History

Update 27.2 (2020-03-05)

Greater than 100% Status having meaning

Shotguns have a unique Role here based on a very patch-work history with how they interact with Status Chance. A Shotgun that shoots 99% Status Chance would give you 35% (roughly) status per pellet. 100% Status Gives you 100% Status per pellet. This huge jump in performance happens with just a 1% gain - why? Well, to answer that we have to look at our choice to make what the UI conveys reality. It would feel broken to shoot a Shotgun with 100% Status and not see a perfect spread of Effects. In reality, to make Status consistent we have to treat Shotguns as a special case.

Shotguns as a special case means we have buffed the Status Chance of all Shotguns by x3 or greater. The UI now behaves to show the reality that you are determining Status Chance per pellet.
