Lore[ | ]

With the kick of a shotgun but also a higher fire rate than the competition, the EVA-8 is an asset in close-quarters engagements against multiple or highly mobile targets. The EVA-8 was a mainstay during the Frontier War, where one was bound to make an appearance in almost all Pilot-to-Pilot engagements. However, the EVA-8 is also useful for civilians and ground troops, due to the forgiving nature of its firing pattern compared to other shotguns.

The EVA-8 Auto is a pump-action/automatic shotgun from the Frontier War designed for extra-vehicular activity and to operate in zero gravity environments. Using 12 Gauge 00 Buckshot cartridges, this weapon was developed from the ground up by Wonyeon Interstellar to provide the IMC Orbital Guard Raiding Parties (aka Shipwreckers) with devastating CQB firepower. The EVA-8 has also been widely used by the Frontier Militia and Badlands Pirates, often acquiring the weapons by raiding remote supply convoys to the Outer Colonies. It is now used in the Apex Games where legends in need of massive firepower during the first contact can look no further than the EVA-8.[1]
