The Proton Shotgun is a weapon introduced in the Ghostbusters (Event) and can be purchased either separately for $9.99 Dollar1 or through the said bundles. It's nature is very similar to that of the Tri Barrel Plasma Rifle since both are categorized as shotguns, and they both have minimal area-effect explosion while also being counted as an Energy-Based Weapons.

Strategy Edit

Despite the fact that it has better stats than the Tri Barrel Plasma Rifle, yet it is more suitable for mid to long range combat. The blast radius is actually pretty large and since the bullet travels fast, it is recommended to shoot at the ground or wall near the target as the resulting explosion can catch the enemy.

This weapon is designed to be more of a long-ranged weapon, due to the fact that the bullets are explosive and the bullet travels faster. Using it at close-range is risky due to the risk of auto-kill. Use this weapon like the Tri Barrel Plasma Rifle. It can kill even armored players in a shot however the reload speed is a little bit slow. Coupled with its small clip, it may allow enemies to kill the player. Therefore it is recommended to reload when not nearby your enemy. With S.F. Headset this gun is way better. 50% Damage bonus enables you to one shot kill un-armored players with both HP perks and no more than 19% Health boost.
