The Sweeper is the only Common Pool shotgun. Used at close range, it can do significant amounts of damage, and although it lacks the large clip and triple-shot ability of the New Conglomerate's Jackhammer, it does have a slightly tighter cone of fire giving it a little more range. It is fairly ineffective at anything beyond short range, so is only useful for indoor and close-combat encounters. Using Armor Piercing shells, the Sweeper has the fastest time to kill of any Medium Assault weaponry against MAX units.

Shots to kill (Close to Medium Range):

Standard Exo-Suit 2 shots
Agile Exo-Suit 3 shots
Reinforced Exo-Suit 4 shots
MAX 12 AP shots

(The above numbers are taken with 100 Health and full Armor; no MedKits, Implants or Empire Incentives applied)
