Wanting to get a shotty. Aside from the Strun Wraith (Dont have it) what shotgun does the most DPS unmodded? im not good with all this math crap. SO, all obtainable shotguns, including Boar Prime, Rank 0 which one does the most DPS? Not per pellet or per shot, per second. Mt friend has the Sobek and claims it is supreme due to its large clip. Not only 6 rounds. I dont know what to buy. Help me out! :D
Sobek beats the hek, strun and boar on DPS by a lot simply because the large magazine and autofire. This has a lot of benefits such as more damage dealt per reload, more damage dealt in the same amount of time as the other shotguns, and it really takes full advantage of the Accelerated Blast mod. It also has the same tight pellet spread as the hek and suffers from less damage dropoff over range than the boar or strun variants.
The downside to this is poor ammo economy (more shots to deal the same damage) which can start to hurt against very high level enemies (but is a non issue against anything below level 100 really) so it's a good idea to get ammo restore items (don't use shotgun scavenger or ammo mutation, it drops your dps by a lot and ammo restores are cheap)
Actually Boar beats sobek since they buffed Boar's damage.
0.95 * 1 + 0,05 * 1,5 = 1,025
1,025 * 96 = 98,4
Boar does an Average of 98,4 damage each time you fire after taking critical damage into account. 5 shots per second 10 round magazine, 2 seconds to unload you magazine + 2,3 seconds to reload. So Boar does 984 damage per magazine every 4,3 seconds.
984 damage / 4,3s = 228,8 DPS
Same thing for Sobek.
0,975 * 1 + 0,025 * 1,5 = 1,0125
1,0125 * 100 = 101,25
Sobek has 20 shots in magazine so 2025 damage per magazine. 2,5 shots per second and 20 round magazine means it takes 8 seconds to empty the magazine and 4 seconds to reload.
2025 damage / 12s = 168,75 DPS
The Boar buff was kinda unfair for Sobek. Even without the buff Boar had slightly higher DPS than Sobek, but also a lot worse damage per shot. Now it does nearly the same damage per shot but fires twice as fast and reloads in nearly half the time.
