The Bulldog is a handheld shotgun from ICA. It is capable of quickly unleashing its two shots and dealing a lot of damage, but it has a long reload time. It is unlocked through the ICA faction at level 4 and is an Uncommon item.


The Bulldog is not able to have any Attachments installed.


A powerful shotgun pistol that suffers from very limited range.


Simple and effective, compact firearms utilizing shotgun shells are popular on stations as close range problem solvers for their high damage as well as for mitigating the risk of overpenetration that more conventional pistols carry. The Bulldog is the ICA's preferred design, easy to build and maintain, and even easier to operate.
