The Saiga is cool, but without a doubt the Boar 12 'Hammer' most definitely rules...

20 rounds, full auto, and unrealistically powerful and accurate (probably to be fixed soon...  Sad )

I use it for everything except long range sniper shots and lobbing grenades... Very Happy

My favorite always has been the Franchi Spas 12 with Lightweight upgrade added to it. I use it all the time for mutant enemys and sometimes bandits for shotgun vs shotgun fights Haha

Only one place, to my knowledge, as it's one of the four unique ALD weapons. You'll see signs for these weapons around the Bar area, with visual clues as to where they were last seen...

There's an even better (in my opinion) shotgun than the Boar12... but you have to be patient to find it. Wink

I just looked at the specs of the Boar 12, it does have better accuracy and rate of fire but I still like the damage / recoil of the Spas 12 better.

Benelli M3 "short". Why do I like it? It's not the most powerful or accurate, damage is less than more powerful shotguns.. Why? Because it goes in slot 2 so it's a lot easier and quicker to deploy than going into inventory, changing my AK74 for a shotgun.

So, even if surprised by, say, psi-dogs I'm ready to take them on in less than a second.

I usually use either the Boar-12 or the Saiga Tactical as soon as they become available, but they both feel overpowered for the early- and mid-game. In my current game I have gone back to using the Benelli M3 'short', which is actually a lot of fun to use - not least because it sits in the pistol slot, so I can keep an assault rifle (currently using the SG-550 'Necro') or a sniper rifle in the main slot. I'm not sure how well it will hold up against some of the tougher enemies later on, but it is doing the job for now.

That is my "pistol slot" choice also. Close up, it's pretty deadly against most enemies, even the exo-skeleton Monolith and Mercs mid-game, although the LDK Commanders are probably too tough for it (.50 BMG works best on them, IMHO). Takes down mutants and unarmored bandits pretty well too. AND you can buy it pretty early from Sid.

I actually had to switch to the saiga tactical cause I needed a faster fire rate and reload speed when I started storm mode, the ammount of mutants spawning now is just crazy,

I ran into like 20+ psodogiant giants in generators for example just stomping the heck out of me LOL

the protecta shotgun seemed nice to me i used it for a couple days but got sick of the long reload time.
i used the usas 12 too for a while it was pretty nice.
but the boar seems the best now.

The Boar-12 was dandy until it got broked, so for the most part I'm using the USAS-12. The underbarrel shotgun attachment for the Steyr BMK is pretty good for close range work - although it only fires buckshot it's got a very high rate of fire, considering

I tried the underbarrel, but the cheap ammo and low dmg didn't go well with me, i prefer M3 Short using the best ammo availlable.

Quick question, what's a LDK commander?

Near the end of Treasure Hunt 2, hunting down the last few Caesar's treasures, you will encounter some almost immortal Last Day Killers. Regular ammo, and even the Boar 12 with isomorphic ammo just staggers them briefly. In my experience, the .50 BMG is the only weapon that reliably takes them down, and then only after numerous head shots.

When heading to Dead City, you have to stash your Boar 12 "Hammer" or lose it. Saw the stats on the Mossberg 590, bought and stashed it. Quite powerful, 8 shots, fires rapidly, reloads quickly. Took it to DC, where it performed well. It's sold infrequently by Adrenaline, saw it in Barkeeps inventory after DC.
I am quite impressed with it.

Yea I really hate those LDK commanders, gotta either sneak past them or be sure to bring as much ammo as you can to get past them.

whats funny is when I was continuing hitting one, it later ran off and died on its own, probably from excessive blood lost

We are already talking about shotguns, so quick question, is there any shotgun who can use the flare rounds? Not isomorph.

The only one that I know of is called the "Flare-Shot Gun", a sawn-off BM17 that AFAIK only fires flares. It is in the spawn menu, but I can't remember seeing it in-game so I don't know where you can get one.

Hey, guys, that gives me an idea. Since the BOAR 12 is a jack-of-all-trades shotgun, firing both 12 ga. and 16 ga. ammo, as well as mounting a grenade launcher, why not add the 12 ga. flare ammo to it? Think I'll try it and see what the effects are. I've not seen the BM16 flare gun in game either, don't think any traders sell it.

EDIT: Looks like the 16 ga. is now commented out in the BOAR 12 file.

I hadn't noticed before, the weapon is called wpn_bm16_flare in the spawn menu but the description says it is a sawn-off BM 17. The flare ammo description says it is designed for the BM 17, Chaser 13 and SPSA 14. The BM 17 is the only one that I can find in the spawn menu.

Hi pchester,
Looks like the flares are a WIP. I think that the SPSA 14 is probably a misspelled SPAS 14, which I don't find in the game. In the real world, a SPAS 14 is simply a SPAS 12 with a box magazine.

The Chaser 13 is the unique Winchester 1300 Chaser that you get from Fox for bringing him the shotgun from Prapor. Spawn menu item is wpn_winchester_m1. Even though the description says it "hits like a howitzer", I find it significantly less powerful than the regular 1300.

Flare ammo was somewhat of a bust in my test, seemed more like isomorphic ammo than a flare. Appears that the weapons associated with the flare ammo are still MIA. LOL, I envisioned shooting a flare into the air to light up the battlefield.

Honest, Officer Sword, Sir, I didn't misspell that word. It was that way when I arrived at the scene of the crime! I saw the Butler running away.

Clips, or Magazines?:
