The Margrave Edit
The Margrave is a special Shotgun only available trough the cosmonaut pack with only cosmetic difference to the ordinary shotgun. The Margrave is then found in Morgans Yu office.
"Designed especially for Catherine Yu's participation in the Centennial European Shooting Championship, the Throne "Margrave" is a masterpiece of firearm craftsmanship. Mahogany stock, a proprietary metal alloy barrel and a 24 karat gold inlay combined with superior electronic gun control systems deliver the ultimate shooting experience." -Inspection
The shotgun is useful when confronting enemies in small spaces or when facing a foe with a large Health pool, unless you're outnumbered it is typically better the reserve shotgun ammo for larger threats like Phantoms and use the Wrench or Pistol on smaller threats like the Mimic. Keep in mind it is a close quarters weapon and damage fall-off over distance is severe at best.
A useful combonation when using the shotgun against a threat like a phantom is to freeze the enemy with the GLOO Cannon and then advance with the Shotgun once it can't attack you, you are much more likely to hit the fast moving Typhon when they are frozen in place and will waste less ammo on shots that go wide or miss their target.
Avoid using the Shotgun to check if an item is a Mimic or not, the Pistol is a much better choice for checking if that coffe mug is a alien in disguise waiting to try and kill you.
