Master Chief wielding the Shotgun from Halo 2.
|Clip Capacity||6 shells (Halo 3)|
|Ammo Capacity||36 shells|
The Shotgun is an extremely powerful weapon found in Halo: Combat Evolved, Halo 2 and Halo 3. It is most devastating when used in close combat and can generally drop an opponent in one shot. The Shotgun has seen a decrease in stopping power from Halo 2 to Halo 3 and has had its clip capacity reduced from 12 shells to 6. The Shotgun is arguably the best close-ranged weapon and can even kill a player who is using the Energy Sword if timed correctly.
