Airsoft Shotguns are excellent weapons in close-quarter scenarios. The shotguns work on spring, gas and co2. Shotguns are excellent in taking on several enemies at once. They fire several bb's at once that spread in width. Shotguns offer different rate of fires like pump-action, single fire or tri-shot. Pump-action shotguns like the Tokyo Marui M3 Super 90
add a touch of realism to the weapon. Clearing a room while pumping the shotgun sure feels good. To make it feel even feel extra special choose the Aps Sai870 Shell Ejecting Shotgun.
After every shot, the shells jumps out and falls on the ground making a very satisfying sound.
Airsoft Shotguns Playstyle
When you are choosing a pump-action Airsoft shotgun, make sure you choose a shotgun with an appropriate magazine size. If you think you won't miss a single shot then go ahead and choose the APS Cam870
with a magazine of 7 shells. If you are just starting, choose the Tokyo Marui Spas 12
that holds 30 shells that can make up for your flaws. Keep in mind the FPS of the shotgun you use. The higher the FPS the further the bullet travels. A high fps shotgun makes an excellent secondary gun in conquest where distances are often bigger
Airsoft Shotgun with a budget
If you are concerned about your budget, consider the spring shotgun to start with. Like the popular and very reliable Cyma CM350
. The CYMA 350 is popular for a reason, it offers a powerful shot for a fraction for the price. If you are getting the hang of it and want to upgrade to a better shotgun. The Tokyo Marui M870
is the ultimate shotgun that fires either 3 or 6 bb's at a time and works on gas.
