A shotgun is a type of gun which fires shells containing pellets called buckshot. Shotguns are useful at close ranges but lack power at long range due to the wide spread of the pellets. Shotguns first appeared in Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare as primary weapons (the W1200 and the M1014). However, in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 they were classed as secondary weapons. Modern Warfare 2 features the Striker, the M1014, the AA-12, the Model 1887, the Spas-12 and the Ranger. In Call of Duty: Black Ops, shotguns were once again primary weapons. Black Ops features the Spas-12 (although an earlier variant), the Olympia, the Stakeout and the HS10.
