What's the current state of shotguns as of Dec. 2015?

I can't find much data on the different shotguns, attachments and bullets to use.

I've been using the SPAS but I'm sure there's better out there.


I'm on console if it makes any difference.
Thanks!

BF4 Shotgun stats - All information about shotguns | Symthic

You can find most of the info you need there. Attachments section lists the spread/recoil changes of chokes. Mod choke usually reduces pellet spread radius by 12.5% and full choke 25%.

Also fletchette has slightly tighter spread cone and has slight penetration while buckshot has none.

  • leptis - Analysis of shotguns, recoil, recoil control and air drag.
  • Veritable - Scoring of BF4/BF1 firearms in terms of usability, firing and other mechanics.
  • Miffyli - Random statistical analysis of BF4 battlereports/players and kill-distances. (list is cluttered with other threads).
Sorry if your name wasn't on the list, I honestly can't recall all names : ( . Nudge me if you want to be included

I can't find the full attatchment stats for shotguns on the attatchments page? Also I can't find the base pellet cone for each shotgun/ammo type.

Oh my bad! I don't know what I was thinking back when I was writing that, but we don't have shotgun attachments listed on site (chockes). Grips etc still do the same for shotguns tho.

And pellet cones are not listed. They are unique for each shotgun weapon. I did make a table showing and shared it on forums but I can't find it anymore :s (and gotta dash, so can't spend time finding it)

What about frag damage to vehicles? USAS 12 specifically.
