This weapon primarily deals Slash b Slash damage.


  • High Slash b Slash and Impact b Impact damage – effective against health and shields (Puncture b Puncture damage is better against health).
  • Impact with enemies or surfaces creates a shatter that inflicts a secondary source of damage to all enemies in a ~5m half-circle in front of the impact.


  • Third lowest damage of all shotguns after InfestedLongGunTwo Phage and CrpSplitRifle Convectrix.
    • Low Puncture b Puncture damage – less effective against health.
    • Damage is unevenly distributed, dealing 30% on the slug and 70% on the explosion.
  • Linear damage falloff from 100% to 50% from 30m to 60m target distance (distances are affected by projectile flight speed).
  • Fewer status counts due to firing a single projectile instead of multiple pellets.
  • Projectiles have travel time.
  • Ammo inefficient.
  • Shatter area of effect cannot hit enemies behind the location of impact.


  • The Astilla fires a slug rather than a traditional spread of pellets. Each slug will deal 30% of the damage to the target upon the initial hit, then explode in a ~5 meter radius and deal the remaining 70% as hemispherical damage. Both instances of damage have the same composition of damage types and each can deal status procs separately.
    • The damage listed in the UI is for both the slug and explosion; enemies hit only by the explosion will suffer less damage as a result.
  • The slug loses accuracy with distance and can be seen to veer off randomly past a certain point.


  • Due to the low ammo pool and slug mechanics it is recommended to treat the Astilla not like a automatic shotgun but instead like a automatic explosive rifle.


  • "Astilla" is Spanish for "splinter".
