Data Sources
Census API source: Underbarrel Shotgun API Data?

The Underbarrel Shotgun is a Rail Attachment available primarily to Select Fire weaponry.  The Shotgun is loaded with 1 shell in the chamber, with 3 in reserve. The reserve cannot be increased using the Ammunition Belt or Grenade Bandolier, however can be resupplied at an Engineer's Ammunition Package.

The Underbarrel Shotgun has the potential to kill any non-MAX class in one hit at close range, with a maximum potential damage of 1300, putting its power on a similar level to a Pump-Action Shotgun. However, the Shotgun is limited by a lengthy reload time, demanding high accuracy to use properly.

Though available for unlock on the various Select Fire weapons, the Underbarrel Shotgun is also found preinstalled on all Directive-variant Carbines as well as the NC Directive-variant Shotgun, The Brawler.

Each faction's Underbarrel Shotgun is visually distinct, however they are all functionally identical.

To use an underbarrel attachment, press the Gear Slot 1 hotkey (1 by default) whilst the attached weapon is equipped.
