Shotguns in The Ascent is a Weapon category that is used to inflict damage against hostile characters. It is one of five categories, Sidearms, Shotguns, Machineguns, Precision Weapons, and Excessive Weapons. Shotgun weapons are powerful short range weapons that usually have a slower firing rate compared to a machinegun, but are ideal for close range combat. These weapons are one - two shot wonders and can beat out a rifle with a good shot and right range.

Weapons are usually obtained as rewards from completing Missions, purchased from Merchants, looted inside chests or crates from various Locations, and are dropped by Enemies or Bosses.

Weapon Name


Weapon Description

Riot Gun

Ballistic shotgun.

408 A no-nonsense ten-gauge shotgun is always nice to keep in handy for close encounters. Jam it in under someone's chin and blast away to much guaranteed satisfaction.

ES4 Eraser

Energy shotgun.

828 Functions like a shotgun, but within the stink of cordite and constant need for clearning. The Eraser energy shotgun has a good spread vs range ratio, and will serve you well when things get close and personal.

The Fist

Ballistic shotgun.

487 CyberSec Mega weapon smith truly went ballistic with this five-barrelled multi-shotgun. If this won't solve your problems, nothing will. Loved by weapon fetishists all over Veles. 


Digital shotgun.

311 @ Mk. 1 If you're pure organic, you've got nothing to fear from this shotgun. Fortunately for you, very few people are. A few ones and zeros will never quite pack the same punch against flesh as a good chunk of metal, but a completely digitalized weapon is both environmentally friendly and the perfect tool for taking out robots.
