Armor Piercing (AP) Shotgun Shell

Armor Piercing Shotgun Shells are, as the name indicates, the ammunition used by Shotguns. A Shotgun Shell contains multiple small pellets that, when fired, are fired at the target. Because these pellets spread out after being fired, it is important to be as close to the target as possible, as to minimize the amount of pellets missing their target. Due to this, Shotguns are used primarily indoors and in other close combat fights, as they are very ineffective at anything beyond close proximity.

The Armor Piercing Shotgun Shells do good damage to armored targets like MAX Units, vehicles and Deployables, but are rather ineffective against smaller, less armored targets. When encountering such targets, it is best to use the standard Shotgun Shells.

Because Shotgun Shells are only used in small arms, they can penetrate the shields of a BattleFrame Robotic.
