The Automatic Shotgun is a more lethal version of the standard civilian shotgun. It features a large drum ammo chamber which allows for rapid reloading and gives the weapon a limited burst-fire capability. For this reason it is largely illegal on most civilized worlds except for use by police or other authorized individuals.
