The Mastiff Shotgun, also called Mastiff, is a semi-automatic shotgun that utilizes Shotgun Shells.svg Shotgun Shells. It fires 8 pellets in the shape of a horizontal line, which decreases in width while aiming down the sights, reducing the spread and thus increasing accuracy.

The Mastiff can be enhanced with the Dual Shell.svg Dual Shell Hop-Up, allowing two shells to be reloaded instead of one, roughly halving the time needed to reload.

Note: Fortified head shot damages may vary ±8. This is due to uncertainty over whether Fortified reduces non rounded or rounded damage numbers. This difference is negligible on non pellet based weapons.

  1. Shotgun damage is calculated per pellet.
    Correct: 11 dmg/pellet x 1.25 = 13.75 dmg/pellet ≈ 14 dmg/pellet, resulting in 112 damage total.
    Incorrect: 88 dmg x 1.25 = 110 dmg.
  2. 2.0 2.1 Body Shield.svg Body Shields and Evo Shield.svg Evo Shields increase hitpoints.
  3. Fortified.svg Fortified decreases damage taken by 15%.

Pros and cons[]

Pros
  • High damage per shot.
  • 1× leg shot multiplier.
  • Aiming down the sights reduces spread.
  • Aiming at chest/shoulder level is usually best, due to the Mastiff's horizontal spread pattern.
  • Ability to reload bullets between shots.
Cons
  • Animation between shots obscures vision.
  • 1× head shot multiplier at 38+ meters. (Reference: Go to the firing range, to the light weapon platform, and stand on the Tier 2(Blue) Standard Stock. The distance from you to the left most dummy is 37 meters.)
  • Hipfire has increased spread.
  • Full reload takes 6.85 seconds without Dual Shell.svg Dual Shell.

Lore[]

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.[1]

Skins[]

There are a total of 59 weapon skins for the Mastiff Shotgun; 9 Legendary, 5 Epic, 29 Rare, and 16 Common.

History[]


Trivia[]

  • According to Bangalore, the Mastiff fires incendiary rounds.
  • The Mastiff is one of only two guns in the game to reload one bullet at a time, the other one being the 30-30 Repeater.
  • The Mastiff was named after Respawn's IT Manager, Roni Papouban's, dog.[1]
  • The Dual Shell.svg Dual Shell Hop-Up doesn't actually chamber two shells into the Mastiff, it simply increases the number of rounds loaded by 2 whenever a shell is inserted.
