Call of Duty: Black Ops Guide

Shotguns

call_of_duty_black_ops_shotguns

Shotguns are best for close range because after a certain range they lose ALL power and will not reach you. They return to the call of duty scene as primary weapons only. Shotguns are very unique weapons. Not only does their damage vary depending on range, but there are a certain amount of pellets in each shotgun shell. In Black Ops there are 8 pellets for each shot. The more pellets you get on the enemy the higher the damage will be. It’s best to use steady aim with shotguns so you get more pellets on your enemy for easier kills.
