Advantages

This Shotgun is a low-level Small Arm that can be easily obtained during the beginning stages of your adventure in FOnline: Reloaded.

Uses

When you're just starting and can't afford better gear yet, this weapon can be effective for hunting low-level creatures. Of course, it does more damage when fired in burst mode, but don't expect to win wars with a 2-round burst gun.

If you don't mind cutting your weapon range to a mere 7 hexes, try modifying the standard shotgun into a Sawed-Off Shotgun, which fires faster. But don't limit yourself to these, as the Combat Shotgun is highly preferred by all low-tier 12-guage fans. After that, the H&K CAWS is truly superior as the tier 2 craftable shotgun. The best shotgun is the Pancor Jackhammer which cannot be crafted, which is why some people prefer crafting CAWS.

Drawbacks

The Shotgun's low magazine size is a major drawback, 2 single shots or 1 burst and you will need to reload.
