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.

–In-Game Description

The Boar is the only automatic shotgun on the current roster. Compared to other shotguns, the Boar's bears characteristically less accuracy and less 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 range; against armored enemies or when fighting at any sort of range however, the Boar quickly loses effectiveness. The gun makes up for its shortcomings with its high rate of fire and larger magazine capacity, giving the Boar a high damage per second and making it a viable weapon.



  • High rate of fire.
  • High clip size.
  • High pellet count.
  • High damage per second.


  • Lowest damage per shot among the shotguns.
  • Ineffective against heavy armored foes without mods.
  • Ineffective beyond short range.
  • Inefficient ammunition economy.


The Boar can be purchased for File:Platinumicon.png 225 or the blueprint can be purchased for File:Creditsicon.png 15,000 upon reaching Mastery Rank 2.

See the user build section for builds using this weapon.


  • The Boar has the most inefficient ammunition economy of the current shotguns. The amount of ammunition supplied by a shotgun ammo pickup is the same as its base clip, which can be emptied quickly with the trigger held down. Count your shells and pick your targets.
  • The inclusion of an armor penetration mod is recommended against tougher armored enemies, especially against the Grineer.
  • It is suggested to use a long range sidearm such as the Lex due to the fact that the Boar has terrible range.
