As the name suggests, Ranger Shotgun is a long-range weapon that is able to fire a single destructive shot. It has a tighter spread than other shotguns and must reload after each blow. But luckily, the reload speed is pretty quick.

However, whenever you use this weapon on the battlefield, make sure that you also carry an AR or SMG to ensure that you don’t get caught out after the shot, particularly once you’re in close quarters.

Although it wouldn’t or couldn’t replace the AR or other snipers in terms of range, you can still do some pretty substantial damage with the Ranger Shotgun within short to medium range. High accuracy makes this weapon quite lethal.

In addition, Ranger Shotgun comes in several versions. They are:

  • Common version (329 DPS)
  • Uncommon version (345 DPS)
  • Rare version (364 DPS)
  • Epic version (383 DPS)
  • Legendary version (402 DPS)
