The Assault Shotgun is a combat shotgun found in TimeSplitters. Unlike the Tactical 12-Gauge from the sequels, which is pump-action, the Assault Shotgun is semi-automatic, capable of emptying its eight-round magazine in 2.25 seconds. Like all shotguns, it has no zoom feature, but it can still be manually aimed to allow for improved shot placement.
Compared to other shotguns, the Assault Shotgun is very accurate, with limited shot spread. Consequently, it is capable of killing an opponent at moderate range with little difficulty, unlike other shotguns, which are only a real threat close-up. Due to this increased effective range, bots with Assault Shotguns should be approached with caution.
Even though it is set to fully automatic, the slide is pumped after firing a shot.
- The Assault Shotgun is based off a real-life SPAS-12. Like in the game, the real-life SPAS-12 is incapable of fully-automatic fire, featuring only semi-automatic or pump-action fire modes.
- The Assault Shotgun is claimed by many fans to be the most powerful weapon in the series, due to its high damage and accuracy, along with being almost fully automatic.
