  • I'm wondering which shotgun has the highest DPS, I had tried the Boar and the Hek before but I couldn't really see much difference, probably since they were low ranked. Anyone has any idea which shotgun has the highest DPS?

    • I prefer the strun, its cheap does high damage (strun does 140 the does hek's 147), but strun has a larger clipsize and more pallets, that makes it better for modding and it has a medium spread cone, its tighter then the boar's but wider then the hek's and, it just looks awesome :D

    • If you're looking for pure DPS, the Boar seems like a good bet. With a max fire rate mod, Insane amounts of pellets could fly at enemies, but it's absolute shit at range.

    • I have tried both the Strun and the Hek and in my opinion, both get the job done so it's a matter of preference.  The Strun has a larger magazine (better for large crowds) but the Hek is able to shoot rather far ranged.  I prefer my Hek, mostly because I can take out Ancients without getting my hands dirty and kills somewhat faster and with less bullets, but both are great guns.  I'm building my Boar but it sounds like it's the most fun to use overall and has a crazy DPS with mods.  Despite this, the Boar doesn't sound too effective at early levels or without a potato (I plan on using a patato, I have 4 just sitting around).

    • The top 3 of DPS of the Shotguns are:

      1st Strun Wraith with 375,148... DPS

      2nd Boar Prime with 276,287... DPS

      and 3rd Boar with 228,837... DPS

      without any mods

    • However the boar/strun has a bigger falloff range than Hek. If you're looking for pure OOMPH it's Hek(Strun Wraith event, so ignoring this) with, again, least falloff damage, so you're able to pick off targets at longer ranges without them having to be right in your face for max damage. The tight spread in that regard is really nice, making sure ALL your pellets hit the target, instead of some missing it because of the all over spread, so getting a full on headshot at 20m or so. The reload speed is decent, even with 4 shots(6 with clip mod). It will need forma for lack of polarities, but isn't that always an issue anyway?

      If you prefer fighting in their faces(which sucks against heavy gunners) The Boar Prime seems to have replaced the sobek, and as stated above the DPS for that fire rate and magazine size is ideal then.

      Don't know what the stats were when you posted, but the strun wraith currently has a dps of 372.5, while the boar prime has a dps of 678.6...

      There was no Boar Prime until around January.....And the Strun Wraith that he listed is almost exactly the same as the one you listed.

      January? That's original boar. Boar prime was released in update 10, in September.

      And back then boar prime does trash-tier damage.(look at the posted date)

      Stat wise the Strun looks good. The model itself looks terrible. It's like someone sawed off the end of an industrial barrel and slapped it onto some blocky mess and then put an m4-styled collapsable stock on the back. It looks incredibly stupid and uncomfortable to hold for the tenno physiology. Same with the Boar: Oh, let's slap a gigantic pinwheeling magazine where humans naturally put their hand to stabalize something with considerable kick like a SHOTGUN.

    • I haven't tried it yet, but I would presume the new mod from the Steel Meridian Syndicate for the Hek , Scattered Justice, will make it shine above the others, it's 200% multishot with just 7 mod capacity so that's quite impressive.

      My guess is that those who get their hands on that mod will have a definitive winner on the Hek.

    • so what? (sancti) tigris isnt in this clash of titans at all? im dissapointed.

      i mean 1050(1260 for sancti Tigris) Damage Per shot, no mods. Thats OVER 1050 damage a second even with the constant reload. That outclasses your shotguns by a whole lot

      You realise that this conversation started in 2013, and the last reply was during the time that Syndicate Primaries weren't a thing right? Sancti Tigris has only existed for a little over a month, and tigris in general was largely considered crap before it had it's rework.

    • @ the last 3 posters above

      Personally, i think the point of this is "the evolution of the shot gun teir". why not keep adding ( other then necro-posty).

    • My reply was more geared towards the Tenno's comment on why the Sancti Tigris hadnt been discussed yet, when if they had checked the dates they would know.

      As for furthering the discussion along, Sancti Tigris caps at around 225k burst DPS, Normal Tigris at about 200k, Hek augmented at about 165k, and so far havent played around with Vaykor Hek though most signs point towards it being relatively equivalent to it's augmented counterpart.
