Overview[edit | edit source]
While it is heavier and its damage per pellet is lower, the pump shotgun delivers more pellets per shot. This actually results in a higher Damage Per Round than the Shotgun if all pellets can be kept on target. It also has a higher ammo capacity, a tighter spread and much greater durability. Like the Shotgun, the Pump-Action Shotgun uses Simple Shotgun Ammo. All together these attributes make the pump shotgun completely superior to regular one, with the sole exception of weight.
If compared to other fabricated firearms, the Pump-Action Shotgun quickly shows clear advantages on short to medium ranges, from its massive damage output combined with decent firerate and large ammo count for a shotgun to its high damage / bullet cost efficiency and durability. It also costs just as much to craft as a similar Assault Rifle, and less than half of the Fabricated Sniper Rifle. Everything taken into consideration, the Pump-Action is notoriously flexible and thus the weapon of choice to most players with access to it. However, the weapon is still a shotgun, and while still dangerous at range, will only dish a fraction of its total firepower with horrible accuracy to small targets, getting rapidly overpowered by other weapons.
It can be crafted at level 55 using Fabricator
Notes[edit | edit source]
- Cannot be fired mid-reload.
- It can have any attachments besides the silencer put on, but like all guns in ARK, it can only have one at a time.
- While the Pump-Action Shotgun has a base damage of 14x46, all creatures aside from Humans take only 70% damage from guns. This means that this Shotgun only does around 14x32 damage to creatures.
