  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.
  • 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.

Pros and cons[ | ]

Pros
  • High damage per shot.
  • Players without a Level 5 Evo Shield Evo Shield can be downed in two shots, making the time-to-kill incredibly low.
  • 1× leg shot multiplier.
  • Aiming down the sights reduces spread.
  • Ability to reload bullets between shots.
Cons
  • Animation between shots obscures vision.
  • 1× head shot multiplier at 38+ meters.
  • Hipfire has increased spread.
    • This increased spread can however increase the likelihood of shots connecting.
  • Slowest empty reload of all shotguns due to each shell being loaded individually.

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 12 skins for the Mastiff Shotgun: 1 Eternal, 3 Legendary, 4 epic, 3 Rare, and 1 Common.

  • Ion Discharge
  • Burnished Frame

Trivia[ | ]

  • 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.
