A shotgun with low accuracy and strong recoil, but able to deliver its payload in full-auto. The Boar is best used at close range.

The Boar is a Tenno automatic shotgun. Compared to other shotguns, the Boar characteristically bears less accuracy and damage per pellet. With the widest shot cone of all available shotguns, the Boar excels at dealing with large groups of lightly armored enemies at close quarters but quickly loses its effectiveness at mid-long ranges. The gun makes up for its shortcomings with its high rate of fire and larger magazine capacity.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The Boar was retired from the Market as of Update 10.3.
  • The listed damage is actually the total of all the pellets' damage value. The actual damage per pellet is 12.1 Impact b.svg Impact, 3.3 Puncture b.svg Puncture, and 6.6 Slash b.svg Slash.
  • The listed Status Chance is the base chance per shot that at least one pellet will proc a status. The actual base Status Chance per pellet is ~2.75%.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • The Boar suffers from ammunition inefficiency. The amount of ammunition supplied by a shotgun ammo pickup is the same as its base magazine size, which can be emptied quickly if one fires the weapon indiscriminately.
  • It is suggested to use a long range sidearm such as the Lex.png Lex or AkimboSomaPistols.png Aksomati due to the fact that the Boar has poor long range capabilities. Or one can simply close the distance between enemies to allow the Boar to continue being effective
  • Using the Mod TT 20px.pngShotgun Ammo Mutation mod can help regain ammo when needed or use Carrier's Ammo Case.
  • Due to a higher Slash b.svg Slash damage compared to the boar prime, the boar can utilize Mod TT 20px.pngSweeping Serration and allow slash to become the highest damage, allowing it to cut corpses into pieces easier.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • This weapon was removed from the market since Update 10.3. Between then and Update 17.7 the only way to obtain the Boar was to purchase the Wrecking Rhino Pack bundle for Platinum64.png545.
  • The Boar resembles a riot shotgun in practice, using the same model as the Strun.png Strun shotgun for the barrel and stock, but with what can be assumed to be a larger in-line drum magazine in the center.
    • Despite the magazine being fully removable in the updated reload animation after Update 17.7, the magazine still clips through the shooter's hand since it has no unique firing position.
    • The Boar appears to have a turret magazine, as seen in the Turret gun. The experimental design had a cylinder with radial, outward facing chambers, and was quickly deemed too dangerous, since at least one chamber pointed towards the user.
  • The word Boar is used to define an undomesticated pig. Much to its description, its appearance reveals a large barrel up front, noting its snout.
  • During Syndicate Missions, alongside the NLCastanas.png Sancti Castanas the New Loka Operatives will use the Boar, being the only NPC to use this weapon.
  • On the model of the Boar are the words, "Danger" written on the Stock and "Evolution" written on the Drum. These are numerous examples of the Orokin Language or "Tennobet" used on Tenno weapons.

  • Fixed the Boar not having a reload sound.

Update 27.2

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.
