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."


Balaïkal is an automatic shotgun with a magazine. It has high damage-per-second, due to its rapid semi-automatic fire and fast reload, the weapon can be a devastating weapon.


Balaïkal can fire a total of about 1245 standard shells, the equivalent of 249 reloads, from full condition before breaking.
