The Blunderbuss shotgun in Advanced Warfare is a single shot, muzzle loading shotgun. It fires 18 pellets from one shell. To put this into perspective all other shotguns in the game fire 8. The Blunderbuss is best used in close quarter combat because of its slow reload speed and the very wide hip fire spread. According to Drift0r, the weapon has very similar stats to the Tac 19, so if you’re fond of using the Tac 19 this gun will feel somewhat familiar to you.
Recommended Attachments for the Blunderbuss are Advanced Rifling to help you get more one shot kills from range and Quickdraw to help you aim down sights faster.
- Damage(Per Pellet): 50-30-10 at close, medium, long range.
- Headshot Multiplier: None.
- Rate of Fire: 11RPM. Very slow.
- Range: Close to Medium
