A shotgun with low accuracy and strong recoil, but able to deliver its payload in full-auto. The Boar is best used at close range.
The Boar is a Tenno automatic shotgun. Compared to other shotguns, the Boar characteristically bears less accuracy and damage per pellet. With the widest shot cone of all available shotguns, the Boar excels at fighting large groups of lightly armored enemies at close quarters, but quickly loses its effectiveness in mid-long range. The gun makes up for its shortcomings with its high rate of fire and larger magazine capacity.
The blueprint is dropped directly in mission as a pickup from Drekar Troopers in Uranus as of Update 17.7. This weapon can be sold for 7,5007,500 .
The Boar was retired from the Market as of the Update 10.3 patch but is available again as of Update 17.7.
The listed damage is actually the total of all the pellets' damage value. The actual damage per pellet is 12.1 impact, 3.3 puncture, and 6.6 slash.
The Boar suffers from ammunition inefficiency. The amount of ammunition supplied by a shotgun ammo pickup is the same as its base magazine size, which can be emptied quickly with the trigger held down. Count your shells, and pick your targets.
It is suggested to use a long range sidearm such as the Lex due to the fact that the Boar has bad range fighting capabilities.
