Very Fast

The Single Shotgun is a weapon in the Team Fortress games. It technically has a delay between shots, but it is so small that the weapon can be considered to have no delay between shots. It has a tighter spread than the Super Shotgun, but it fires less pellets per shot.

The Scout, Soldier, Demoman, Heavy, Medic and Pyro have this weapon.

Quake Team Fortress and Enemy Territory FortressEdit

The Quake Team Fortress and Enemy Territory Fortress Single Shotgun has very limited applications, mostly because it suffers damage falloff at ranges. Even though its pellet spread it tight, the damage falloff will make sure that the pellets will barely do any damage to a target. It should only be used as a last-ditch weapon when your other weapons are empty, and you're too far away to use the Axe.


Team Fortress ClassicEdit

The Team Fortress Classic Single Shotgun is vastly improved from its Quake Team Fortress and Enemy Territory Fortress variants, although this is not saying much. It still does low damage, but unlike their versions of the Single Shotgun, it has no damage falloff. This makes the Single Shotgun an ideal weapon for taking potshots at long range, as its spread pattern is tight. In some cases, such as the Demoman and Pyro, the Single Shotgun is their only instahit ranged weapon.

When using the Singe Shotgun as a ranged weapon, do not target healthy enemies; instead, target enemies that you have already wounded. If the enemy is critically wounded, it is likely that you will kill him with the Single Shotgun. If the enemy gets away, it is likely that he will be so wounded that he will die from a few shots from anything.

When firing at a target, remember that you can fire while reloading.

As with the Quake Team Fortress and "Enemy Territory Fortress" Single Shotgun, it can be used as a last-ditch weapon when you can't reload any of your other weapons for some reason.



The old TFC models use the Super Shotgun's world model when they hold this weapon. A unique world model for the Single Shotgun was released with the new models, but is only used by the new models.


This weapon is from Quake 1.
