12 Gauge Incendiary Shell

The 12 gauge incendiary shell is a new shotgun ammunition as of Devblog 198. Once fired, unlike any other shell, it will spew out flaming shotgun projectiles. If stepped on, the player that walks over it will take fire damage. The flame projectile sparks rather than flame when the projectile hit the target.

The fire released from this shell will slow anyone that steps on it, rendering opponents out of cover extremely vulnerable. You can't get much utility out of this if you're solo, but if you have a buddy that can exploit this it can work wonders.

The fire spread by these shells on the ground can be used for area denial. Want to prevent someone from escaping quickly? Shoot these at a choke point in their escape route.

Extremely overrated and overused in 1v1 combat as their damage output is worse than handmade shells. the argument can be made that the fire damage isn't counted but there are only 10 pellets with a wide spread and by the time the fire has done any considerable damage, your opponent will have already killed you (assuming they are as technologically advanced). they aren't useless though, incen shells slow people down walking through them so they are better used as entry denial. for example, blocking off a door frame during a raid or my personal main use, when there is a clear sign of players outside of the coaling tower at train yard, my duo partner who is on top of the coaling tower can use incens at the door and allow me, hiding in the skip to use a shotgun and prevent people from rushing in afterwards thinking my friend is a solo player.
