|Description:||"One pellet per shot small spread shell."|
Slugs are an uncommon type of ammunition that can be found anywhere. Like Buckshot, they are used by the Double Barrel, Lever Action, and Novuh shotguns. However, unlike buckshot, slugs have no spread, making them effective at medium range.
Slugs fire only one pellet, but can penetrate through multiple zombies, making them more efficient in spreading damage out among a crowd. Slugs also concentrate all of the shotgun's firepower into one shot, outdoing even the Timberwolf in damage, albeit at a very short range.
- In real life and the current version, slugs only shoot one projectile, whereas in the previous version, they shot two
- Like the buckshots and arrows, the slug doesn't need to be crafted into a clip but rather stacks and is loaded individually. Good for early to mid-game use of inventory space as you can hold 30 shells in 1 slot, equal to a NATO or Savage magazine.
- Unlike buckshot, they don't spawn in farms.
- Slugs are usually used for armor penetration, while buckshots are used for hunting big animals.
