Eridanus Posted May 4, 2022 Share Posted May 4, 2022 I find myself with several questions related to shotguns in this game. According to Shotguns, p. 65: "Characters who are proficient with Longarms may add their Proficiency bonus to attacks made with slugs." Since it is only possible to have your PB included once in any one roll, is it safe to assume that this means that you can use either Shotgun or Longarms proficiency to fire slugs from a shotgun? -If so, does it also mean Longarms feats (eg. Attack Specialist (Longarms)) can be used with a shotgun firing slugs? -Is the reverse also true? Can someone proficient with Shotguns add their PB (and use Shotgun feats) with Longarms that are in single-shot mode? The Tau'ri Weapons table only shows one set of stats for a shotgun. Does this mean that an attack with a slug does the same damage as an attack with buckshot? The description of the Mossberg 500 shotgun states that it has a "reinforced stock that can be used as a bludgeon if necessary." None of the other weapons listed includes such a note. If a PC wants to use the stock of a different firearm to hit something with, what should this be counted as? Finally, does anyone have a clue as to why Medics are proficient in Shotguns? I initially assumed that it was intended to represent tranquilizer guns, but it seems as if Longarms proficiency would cover that just as well.
