Description Convars Keyvalues Flags Other Weapons


weapon_shotgun is the entity name for the common SPAS-12 weapon found in SMOD/Half-Life2. Easy to acquire and effective in close quarters, this gun is favored by many members of the Resistance, especially against headcrab zombies. Likewise, Overwatch team leaders often wield the SPAS-12 as they take point in attacks, and prison guardsmen like those at Nova Prospekt have their own fair share of shotguns.

Primary Fire: Fires a shell containing 7 pellets.

Secondary Fire: Consumes two shells to fire 12 pellets at once.
