Reaper tears enemies apart with twin shotguns.
Default Key: (PC LMB, PS R2, XB RT)


Reaper will alternate between his two shotguns. Each of these guns fires 20 pellets (which deal maximum 7 damage per one pellet) per round, and they have a wide spread with a close distance falloff range, making the shot ineffective from a moderately far distance. Each pellet can also land headshots, inflicting heavy amount of damage in close range.



  • While the Hellfire Shotguns are deadly in close-quarter combat, they are cumbersome to reload.[1]
