Shotgun is another very basic chip that appears automatically in the ChipFolder in every game. While not as powerful as the Cannon (whose Attack Power is 40), Shotgun has the benefit of striking whatever is behind the target, doing 30 damage as well. Thus, while its Single Attack Power is 30, its Total Attack Power is 60. Shotgun can also combine with CrossGun, Spreader, and M-Cannon to Advance to Powered Cannon?.
As the foundation of the Shotgun family, Shotgun hits more than just the first enemy in the line of fire. In this case, it also strikes anything one square behind the target, for an equal amount of damage.
