The "sawed off" shotgun (if only we had a real sawed off).

I like more the heavy shotgun by looks and sound but I wouldn't recommend it because it has a lot of recoil and no bullet spread, the assault is better for "close" combat just because of the fire rate and bullet spread but it looks bad

Apples and oranges. They have different applications.

Heavy shotgun fires a single slug and has a greater effective range. Good for close-medium range

 

Assault shotgun fires multiple bbs per round which have quite a lot of spread. The assault shotgun loses its effectiveness on anything beyond close range, but is one of, if not, the top performing weapon in CQB

Assault...close range.

Musket... long range.

Assault Shotgun, because with 32 rounds inside, who needs reloading?

According to the stats, which aren't always correct in this game, the Heavy Shotgun is supposed to be the best.

What stats is that?

 

The auto shotty is far more supirour as others have posted...

 

Full Auto

 

32 round shots

spread out pellets

no need for reload as you rarely use 32 bullets

faster firing.

Better for CQC (Closed Quarters Combat)

 

Heavy Shotgun

 

Semi-auto

single slug

require reload after each shot

slow firing

bad recoil

has better range at distance.

Seven people in here trying to get you NOT to use the assault lol. Personally I use both.

Heavy has its uses but the assault is by far the better of the two, and one of the nastiest guns in the game.

Assault Shotgun has better Fire Rate.

Assault because of the 32 bullet capacity.

Honestly if you're not using assault shotgun, you're doing it wrong.

Assault : normal shotgun spread , big magazine ( ext mag last 7 second ) & easily hit even if crosshair raises itself

Heavy : less shotgun spread made-up for better range , attainable by newbies , cheap cost of ammo & only bullet-based weapon that capable removes kuruma's parts

Heavy Shotgun is best non-explosive weapon against Armored Kuruma. This is a fact.

Man that's a tough one. I like the range of the heavy, but I enjoy the spread of the assault.

The Assault Shotgun wins in actual battle use, it has a faster rate of fire, better at close-range (which is how you should use a shotgun) and bigger magazine to store more ammo before reloading. The Heavy Shotgun looks are better IMO (I am a fan of Kalashnikovs), it is better at longer ranges and you can pick it up from Level 1.
