Shotgun rebalance landed:
I’ve changed all shotguns I can get. Even in mainline mods. But there are mods that is not in mainline. And that mods may have shotguns. Shotguns in that mods should be edited to be inline of original game balance.
Convertsion pattert for shotguns:
All average shotgun must have at least 300 dipersion. It is (almost) smg dipersion.
Dispersion for “normal” shotgun should be around 300-500.
Dispersion for “scrap” shotgun should be around 600-900.
Of course you can violate this rules for special effects. But try to stick to smg dispersion ranges for normal (non handmade scrap) shotguns.
Simple conversion for exisitng shotguns: add + 300 to your shotgun to get proper dispersion.
Warning it also affects anything the should behave like shotgun. Example- shotgun pistol.
Convertsion pattert for shotgun ammo:
Basic shot now has range 12 Basic slug adds +12 to range.
Just multiply your shotgun ammo range to 2. This way range:
6 X 2 = 12.
5 X 2 = 10.
But most likely your shotgun ammo already has “copy-from”.
So likely changes for ammo are not needed.
