The Shattergun is a shotguns at close-up encounters, but after 3 meters its effectiveness is severely limited . It is unlocked through ICA logo colored.pngICA faction and is an EpicRarity.svgEpic item.


The Shattergun can have 8 different Attachments installed on it, one for each slot. The type of attachment must be compatible with the weapon's type, so only attachments that have Shotgun or Shotgun ammo as a category can be installed onto a Shattergun.


An unconventional shotgun that fires shard fragments by shattering an unstable fuel crystal.


Crafted on Prospect station using salvage and wood from the planet itself, this scattergun demonstrates The ICA logo colored.pngICA's ingenuity and ability to thrive with limited resources. A molded adrentite crystal, byproduct of its refinement for use as rocket fuel, serves as both projectile and propellant; a small electric charge incites a rearrangement in the crystal's lattice, with the sudden energy release fracturing the crystal into thin shards along its length as they're shot through the barrel.
