Lore[ | ]

Originally designed as an anti-Pilot shotgun for ground troops, the Mastiff is a powerhouse against even the toughest adversaries. Each Mastiff shell separates into "microslugs" when fired, spreading in a predictable and deadly horizontal pattern. Given the intricate nature of its design, the cost and time associated with creating a Mastiff makes it a rare but prized firearm.

The M1901 Mastiff Combat Shotgun was developed specifically for low-gravity close-quarters engagements. The kinetic energy produced when fired in low-gravity can severely unbalance its user with massive recoil, so the engineers at Lastimosa Armory incorporated a muzzle velocity dampening system which mitigates that energy and greatly reduces recoil.

Intended for low to zero gravity ship boarding and clearing operations, the Mastiff gained notoriety throughout The Frontier as a reliable and devastating combat shotgun. Shells can be fed through the under-mounted magazine or with the optional drum magazine upgrade. Troops from the IMC's 401st often refer to it as the "Mobile Claymore" as its high rate of fire proved to be devastating.[2]

Trivia[ | ]

  • According to Bangalore, the Mastiff fires incendiary rounds.

  • The Mastiff is one of the two guns in the game to reload one or two bullets at a time rather than its entire magazine, the other being the 30-30 Repeater.
  • The Mastiff was named after Respawn's IT Manager, Roni Papouban's, dog.[2]
  • The fire mode selector seen on the Warp Zone, The Pest Controller, Final Boss, Pixel Hunter, and Game Over skins displays the options for a burst and full auto mode, which the Mastiff is unable to switch to in game.
