House McBrael Ogre
The Ogre is a dwarven shot gun that fires a large .50 caliber solid slug, or large bore shot. Either way, it is a precision weapon for its time and class.
Dwarven Scatter Gunne
An attempt by dwarven gunsmiths to make a design similar to a traditional Core Earth shot gun, it is a dwarven forged double bronze barreled shotgun that fires a decent gauge shot. Several foundries make this break open weapon, and it is very popular among adventurers, miners, and guards.
There’s an old dwarven saying. ‘Goblins play with things they should never play with.’ The goblin attempt to make a shotgun exemplifies that saying. The goblin gunsmiths took the blunderbuss and made it worse. The Goblin Blunderbuss has an oversized bell that makes it front heavy, its shot load, while large, is mostly small gauge, and the Goblin Green powder that propels it is undercharged, so Goblins shove more powder in. It has a tendency to explode on a roll of 1 through 5, doing damage to the shooter.
MacClerran Double Break
MacClerran and Sons on Orthe make an unusual shotgun. The barrels are mounted on top of each under, and rotate along a spindle when fired. The two shells may then be ejected and reloaded. It is very reliable, and gains +1 to hit and damage if used at Point Blank range.
Remington Break Open
The classic shotgun of the Wild West, it is very common in New Colombia. It is a simple break open shotgun, available in either single or double barreled models.
Remington Custom Pistol
This weapon is a custom item, only crafted for a character or found as loot. It is not an off the shelf item. It comes from New Colombia and Core Earth’s Wild West. It is essentially a double barreled sawed off break open shotgun with a pistol grip. It has almost no range, but in that limited range, it is devastating.
This is a Core Earth weapon from the Wild West. It is a Remington shotgun that uses a lever action and internal magazine, so that it functions just like a Winchester lever action rifle. It never caught on due to the complexity of the mechanism, which leaves it vulnerable to breakdowns. On a roll of ‘1 or 2’ to hit, it suffers a jam and a full round must be spent clearing the mechanism.
Spencer .50 Shotgun
A Core Earth weapon from the Wild West, this was, at the time, the heaviest shotgun around, with a very distinctive noise when fired. Its use was actually restricted by the US Government for several years, being illegal to sell to Native Americans and Africa-Americans. It was the first slide action shotgun produced in America.
High Standard Model 10 (HS10)
The High Standard Model 10 (HS10) is a gas operated, semi-automatic shotgun that was manufactured by the High Standard Manufacturing Company of Hamden, CT. It is easily recognized by its bullpup design, rotatable shoulder stock, and integrated flashlight. The basic design of the Model 10 shotgun was developed in the late 1950s by Alfred Crouch, a Santa Monica, California police sergeant. Crouch’s goal was to create the ultimate entry shotgun for SWAT and tactical units. Although the standard capacity of the Model 10 is 4 shells, there was a magazine tube extension available which would increase the capacity to 6 shells, as well as carry one round chambered. Originally, the Model 10 was sold to law enforcement only. The concept of this shotgun was quite interesting to many police agencies who adopted the Model 10 in the late 1960s and early 1970s; however, most of the agencies found many shortcomings, and ultimately ceased using the Model 10. It suffered from cycling problems, and Another problem was that the Model 10 could only be fired from the right arm, as the gun ejected spent cartridges from the right side of the unit with a high force. There is a warning on the right side of the shotgun reading “CAUTION – DO NOT SHOOT FROM LEFT SHOULDER.” For movie buffs, it is easily recognizable as the weapon used by Detective John Shaft in ‘Shaft’s Big Score.’
A Core Earth weapon, this is the classic police shotgun, most likely to be found in police cars across America. It has a fold out stock to stabilize it, and it is pump action.
Atchison AA-12 Assault Shotgun
The Auto Assault-12 (AA-12), originally designed and known as the Atchisson Assault Shotgun, is a shotgun developed in 1972 by Maxwell Atchisson. The most prominent feature is reduced recoil. The weapon is fully automatic only. However, it fires at a rate of 300 rounds per minute, allowing it to fire one round at a time with brief trigger pulls. It is fed from either an 8-shell box magazine, or a 20- or 32-shell drum magazine. This is the first combat shotgun, designed for house to house fighting, and in Core Earth it was used by South African paramilitary units hunting ANC guerillas in the slums of South Africa. Kickback is not a problem, though, since its gas operated system and compensator absorb 90% of the recoil. It is -1 to hit when used for One on Many or Many on One actions, due to issues with weight distribution of the rounds in the drum. It also has a tendency to overheat when used for more than two drums worth.
Benelli M1 Semi-Auto
A popular Core Earth shotgun among European police agencies. It has a fold out stock for easy carrying.
Europe’s premier assault shotgun, it is fully automatic with a large clip magazine, and features a short barreled, heavy frame construction. Unlike the Daewoo or Atchison, its recoil compensator fully compensates when used as Many on One or One on Many actions, so it suffers no penalty.
The most common used home defense shotgun and hunting shotgun in both America and Europe. It is a pump action, semi-automatic, with a folding stock.
Daewoo Arms combat shotgun is a beast. Fully automatic, drum magazine, and a heavy structure makes it devastating. It is very popular among anti-cyborg police units across Asia, as well as among Chinese army assault troops specialized in urban warfare. It has a rugged frame and a gas powered ejection port and internal compensator, but it still has beastly recoil. ‘-1’ to hit if used as Many on One or One on Many actions.
The Pancor Corporation Jackhammer is a 12-gauge, gas-operated automatic shotgun designed in 1984 and patented in 1987. Though unconventional, the Jackhammer can best be described as a gas-operated revolver. Many parts were constructed of Rynite polymer to reduce weight. Layout was of a bullpup configuration with a 10-round revolving cylinder that fired conventional, 12-gauge shells. The cylinder’s method of rotation was very similar to the Webley–Fosbery Automatic Revolver, an operating rod being used to rotate the cylinder. Spent shells were retained in the cylinder, as in a traditional revolver. For reloading, the cylinder was removed from the bottom of its housing and shells were manually extracted. Removing the cylinder required the barrel be moved and secured in the forward position. It is a bulky weapon, and ponderous to reload, even with the pre-loaded, shrink wrapped ‘cassette’ style cylinders. It is in limited production, but becoming very popular with both the US Army new Ranger and Light Infantry units, for its use against carnosaurs and over predatory fauna in the Living Land, as well as among urban warfare units of the US Army.
Kanaga Street Sweeper
Kanaga’s entry into the shotgun market, this heavy pistol grip shotgun has a short barrel and folding stock, and can fit into a shoulder holster. It’s very popular among street samurai and police. It can be fired one handed, like a pistol, but this requires at least a 12 Strength and still gives -1 to hit if used like this.
Kanaga Boomer Buster
Kanaga’s second entry into the shot gun market, this is a heavy barreled, bulky shotgun-pistol designed for use against rogue boomers. Like the Street Sweeper, it can be fired one handed, like a pistol, but this requires at least a 12 Strength and still gives -1 to hit if used like this. Its attraction is the unique rounds it uses-.500 Depleted Uranium Core Rounds designed to penetrate a combat boomer’s heavy armor. The rounds are armor piercing, and are very expensive to make. They also must be cleaned up after firing, or risk causing long term health damage. The rounds are stored in a pre-packaged cylinder, which must be popped out and replaced after emptying it.
