A shotgun, also called a "scattergun," is a firearm designed to shoot a multitude of lead or steel balls of varying sizes, greatly increasing the weapon's hit potential. This makes it very effective at hunting game. However, the accuracy and power found at close range starts to diminish as the target gets farther away. Shotguns designed for the military's use are often called "combat shotguns."
This shotgun is capable of firing both rounds at one time. Although this can make it a very devastating weapon, you need to reload immediately after doing this. Besides that, there's no real reason to use the Silverhawk; it's weaker than the starting Ithaca 37.
