The Tactical Shotgun is a ranged weapon dropped by Tactical Skeletons in the Hardmode Dungeon. It serves as an upgrade to the Shotgun and Boomstick, firing six bullets in a spread for the cost of one. It is also the only shotgun with auto-firing capabilities.


  • A well placed "meatshot" (in which some or all of the bullets hit) does extraordinary damage - over 120 damage can be dealt per shot.
  • This weapon is less effective at long range, as most of the bullets are likely to miss against smaller enemies.
  • It is inadvisable to use this gun with piercing ammo (i.e. Meteor Shot) because of the invincibility timer that is activated on monsters when a piercing attack hits them.
