The Kohmak fires an increasing number of pellets the longer it is fired, until it reaches its maximum pellet count of five pellets per shot. It will also consume 1.6667(5/3) ammo per shot at maximum spool.
With its base magazine size and fired from rest to full spool, the Kohmak can effectively fire 25 shots, with one round left in the magazine. The number of shots per magazine can be increased by firing the Kohmak slowly to prevent spool-up, allowing it to fire its maximum of 40 shots, but at the cost of effective damage.
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.
(Undocumented) Status chance of first projectile increased from 23% to 69% (subsequent projectiles will have their individual status chance divided evenly by this value, as it was in the case before this update).
