The Riot Shotgun is a handheld weapon added as part of the Saints and Sinners update.
The Riot Shotgun is a short-range weapon firing eight pellets from a single Shotgun Shell, which makes it difficult to hit distant targets as they can spread. As for every other firearm, used ammunition cannot be recovered. Shotgun Shells deal larger amounts of damage at close range, where more pellets may hit, inflicting Gunshot Wounds, Bleeding and a brief Stun.
It should be noted that the Riot Shotgun has a wide spread even for skilled users. Therefore, in the hands of the unskilled, the spread greatly reduces the weapon's utility outside of point-blank range.
The Boom Stick and Autoshotgun use the same types of ammunition as the riot shotgun. The former can fire two shots in short succession. The latter has a higher fire-rate and ammo-capacity, at the cost of not fitting in standard inventory slots – instead it must be equipped on the Toolbelt-slot, or carried in the character's hands.
The Riot Shotgun is held with both hands and must be loaded with Shotgun Shells or Explosive Slugs to be used. As with all weapons and tools, using it is done by holding the Right-click to take aim, then by Left-clicking to shoot/use.
