The Super Shotgun, or Boomstick, is a double-barreled shotgun that appears in Serious Sam's Bogus Detour.
Overview[edit | edit source]
The super shotgun is a side-by-side shotgun that uses 12-gauge shells as ammunition. Like the Double Barrel Coach Gun, the super shotgun fires two shells each time the fire key is pressed. It deals very high damage at close range, though it scatters the pellets too much due to the shotgun's high spread. Thus, it is only useful for elimination of individual or small groups of enemies at close range.
Tactics[edit | edit source]
- The super shotgun is an excellent weapon against individual or small groups of Beheaded Kamikazes, Gnaars, Kleer Skeletons and Obsidian Elite Kamikazes, though its rate of fire is not recommended against larger groups of enemies.
- The weapon is effective against Orc Captains, though it is best to dash or circle around him whilst firing.
- With the Accurate Boomsticks upgrade, the super shotgun becomes more useful at longer range, giving it roughly the same range as the regular shotgun.
Upgrades[edit | edit source]
|Your shotguns will fire with less spread and at a longer range.|
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The super shotgun uses the same firing and reload sound as the Serious Sam 3: BFE version of the Double Barrel Coach Gun.
