Pros and Cons[edit | edit source]

Pros
  • High damage if all or almost all bullets connect.
  • Decent ammo and reload.
  • Has 0% leg damage reduction.
  • Aiming down the sights will reduce spread, thus increasing accuracy.
  • Aiming at the enemy's chest/shoulder area will deal more damage due to the Mastiff's horizontal pellet spread pattern.
  • Ability to reload single bullets mid-fight.
Cons
  • Animation between shots can obscure vision.
  • 1× headshot multiplier at 38+ meters.
  • Hip-fire will have increased spread, thus decreasing accuracy.
  • The Mastiff's damage is sometimes inconsistent. Recommend using this weapon's iron sights, as they are indicative of its spread pattern.

Lore[edit | edit source]

The M1901 Mastiff Combat Shotgun was developed specifically for low-gravity close-quarters engagements. The kinetic energy produced when fired in low-gravity can severely unbalance its user with massive recoil, so the engineers at Lastimosa Armory incorporated a muzzle velocity dampening system which mitigates that energy and greatly reduces recoil.

Intended for low to zero gravity ship boarding and clearing operations, the Mastiff gained notoriety throughout The Frontier as a reliable and devastating combat shotgun. Shells can be fed through the under-mounted magazine or with the optional drum magazine upgrade. Troops from the IMC's 401st often refer to it as the "Mobile Claymore" as its high rate of fire proved to be devastating.[1]
