    Hello,

    I have tried the weapon at shooting range and damage numbers are rubbish. Inventory says damage 1.3M. Best I got on the shooting range was 100-150 k. I always tried to aim at the center of a target. But some shot at 5 meter range supposedly did pitiful 29 k damage??
    The weapon has a sharp dropoff. So I wanted to see whether I shoud keep that optimal range stat or not.

This book is a treatise on the theory of ethics, very popular during the Renaissance. The first line of Lorem Ipsum, "Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet..", comes from a line in section 1.10.32.

    The 1.3M damage stat is based off all the pellets hitting, and obviously a sawn-off shotgun has a huge spread, so even if there was less damage drop-off, it wouldn't really help that much. That weapon is best used at point blank range (or with headhunter stacks, but that's a different story).
    One other note, that 'Damage last hit' value the firing range gives you can be misleading, if the hit in question 'kills' the target, it'll show the damage as only the HP the target had left, regardless of how much more damage the shot actually did. You can get around this by using the 'invulnerable' or 'invulnerable elite' veterancy settings to see the true damage.

    @the_kettle Thanks for your tip. It is not a problem with the weapon, but that firing range is bugged. I set the mode to "invulnerable" and "last hit" still displayed nonsense.

    And the weapon spread is not huge, at 5 meters all pellets hit my target. Maybe even at 10 meters.

    I can see partial real damage in floating dmg numbers - I cannot see total damage. They are four floating numbers after one hit. But I doubt that the shotgun has only 4 pellets. If one pellet does 170k, there should be about 8 pellets for that 1.3M damage.

    @xlastovi
    Tested it myself and I see 8 numbers when using a 5m target, but yeah: the 'damage last hit' is only one of the pellets. If you reset the DPS calculation before firing it will show the full damage for a second before it starts going down. Another way to see the total damage would be to turn on damage numbers in the chat box: open the chat, click the right arrow by the channel-channel bar, open the 'Combat Info' submenu and select Damage Numbers, and it will then list the damage of each pellet that hits.
