Shotguns is a weapon type containing short-ranged firearms which usually discharge a large quantity of rounds at once.

EDF 5

Ranger Fracture Weapon Level: 106
Capacity : 15
ROF : 1.4 /sec
Damage : [PT](792.7 ~ 79.3) x 19
Reload Time : 3.3 sec
Range : 340.0 m
Accuracy : B-
A special shotgun that fires needle-shaped bullets with the power to penetrate objects. The bullets can maintain their penetrating power for 160 meters after discharge. Additionally, since the bullets scatter in a wide horizontal area, they can easily hit the enemy.

EDF 4.1

In Earth Defense Force 4.1: The Shadow of New Despair, shotguns are only usable by the Ranger class.

Ranger Buffalo G1 Weapon Level: 0
Capacity : 8
ROF : 1.0 /sec
Damage : 19x10
Reload Time : 4.0 sec
Range : 130.0 m
Accuracy : B-
This combat shotgun fires dozens of rounds per shot. These rounds scatter over a wide area, making it much easier to hit fast-moving enemies. It also deals tremendous damage at close range, though the tradeoff is that close range is really all it can do. It's also rather slow to reload.


Ranger Buffalo G2 Weapon Level: 3
Capacity : 8
ROF : 1.0 /sec
Damage : 15x20
Reload Time : 4.0 sec
Range : 72.0 m
Accuracy : C
A new Buffalo shotgun that fires twice as many shells, greatly increasing its firepower. Rounds are dispersed over a wider area, but its range is even shorter than that of its predecessor. The pump-action of this model also means it has a long reload time.


Ranger Governor 25 Weapon Level: 8
Capacity : 8
ROF : 1.0 /sec
Damage : 18x25
Reload Time : 4.0 sec
Range : 72.0 m
Accuracy : D
A powerful shotgun that fires 25 rounds over a wide area, making it possible to hit several enemies at once. When all 25 shots hit, the damage dealt is unrivaled. However, because it covers such a wide area, its range is that much shorter.


Ranger Wideshot Weapon Level: 11
Capacity : 8
ROF : 1.0 /sec
Damage : 22x20
Reload Time : 4.0 sec
Range : 72.0 m
Accuracy : B
This special shotgun scatters rounds over a horizontal arc, making it extremely effective against enemy groups. It is equally powerful against enemies on land or in the air, but you must be careful not to catch your fellow soldiers in the line of fire.


Ranger Wideshot VR Weapon Level: 14
Capacity : 8
ROF : 1.0 /sec
Damage : 26x20
Reload Time : 4.0 sec
Range : 72.0 m
Accuracy : B
An upgraded Wideshot. Scatters rounds vertically, making it possible to attack enemies on land and in the air simultaneously. Firepower is also improved.


Ranger Slug Shot Weapon Level: 10
Capacity : 5
ROF : 0.5 /sec
Damage : 450.0
Reload Time : 4.0 sec
Range : 50.0 m
Accuracy : A+
A shotgun that shoots high-caliber, armor-piercing slugs. Because the slugs are larger than usual, they encounter more air resistance, thereby shortening their effective range.


Ranger Sparrow Shot Weapon Level: 15
Capacity : 12
ROF : 4.0 /sec
Damage : 20x10
Reload Time : 3.0 sec
Range : 99.0 m
Accuracy : B-
A high-performance, gas-operated shotgun that can fire many powerful rounds rapidly. Its range, however, is not very long.


Ranger Buffalo G3-Burst Weapon Level: 17
Capacity : 8
ROF : 0.6x2 /sec
Damage : 40x15
Reload Time : 4.0 sec
Range : 150.0 m
Accuracy : B-
A double-barrel shotgun that releases two simultaneous shots in a single attack. Rounds are concentrated to maximize firepower, enabling great damage in a small area. It has no auto-fire capabilities, however.


Ranger Buffalo G3 Weapon Level: 20
Capacity : 8
ROF : 1.0 /sec
Damage : 40x15
Reload Time : 4.0 sec
Range : 150.0 m
Accuracy : B
A new model of the Buffalo shotgun. Rounds are concentrated in a small area, making it possible to deal terrifying damage to a single target. This is a pump-action model, too, so it takes a while to reload.


Ranger Sparrow Shot M2 Weapon Level: 27
Capacity : 14
ROF : 5.0 /sec
Damage : 25x15
Reload Time : 5.0 sec
Range : 120.0 m
Accuracy : B-
A more powerful Sparrow Shot model with an even greater rate of fire. The number of rounds fired and effective range are also greatly improved. As with the original, the Sparrow Shot M2 is gas-powered.


Ranger Slug Shot BC Weapon Level: 30
Capacity : 7
ROF : 1.0 /sec
Damage : 900
Reload Time : 4.0 sec
Range : 70.0 m
Accuracy : A+
A shotgun designed for armor piercing. With specially shaped slugs and improved reloading mechanics, its reload speed and range have been greatly improved. Its high-caliber rounds have immeasurable destructive and penetrating power, but because of their size, they're more susceptible to air resistance and thus have shorter range.


Ranger Governor 50 Weapon Level: 30
Capacity : 8
ROF : 1.0 /sec
Damage : 40x50
Reload Time : 4.0 sec
Range : 150.0 m
Accuracy : D
A superb shotgun with tremendous firepower. This weapon features an incredibly wide shot pattern and a high number of rounds. It is far deadlier than the original model, and there are rumors that it was developed from Ravager technology.

ROF : 1.1 /sec
Damage : 60x25
Reload Time : 5.3 sec
Range : 160.0 m
Accuracy : B
A powered-up Wideshot that spreads rounds out over a wide horizontal field, making it possible to attack several enemies at once. It is extremely effective against enemies both on the ground and in the air, but you must be careful not to catch other soldiers in the blast.


Ranger Buffalo G4 Weapon Level: 41
Capacity : 15
ROF : 1.0 /sec
Damage : 90x15
Reload Time : 7.0 sec
Range : 154.0 m
Accuracy : B-

Ranger Wideshot A1-VR Weapon Level: 44
Capacity : 10
ROF : 1.0 /sec
Damage : 72x25
Reload Time : 5.3 sec
Range : 168.0 m

ROF : 1.0 /sec
Damage : 170x15
Reload Time : 6.0 sec
Range : 221.0 m
Accuracy : B-
The ultimate Buffalo shotgun. Its power has been increased dramatically, without compromising its overall balance. It's still, however -- you guessed it -- a pump-action model, meaning it takes some time to reload.
