Pachyderm Shotgun

Eli_the_HunterEli_the_Hunter Advanced MemberRegistered Users 660 Posts
Well, as we all thought, no way of upgrading the ammo.... 2 shot max. But reload time is pretty quick; our hunter reloads two shells at the same time. There is no upgrade for sight either so no zoom. It does pack a powerful punch though, with the first three upgrades it's already more powerful than the barricade and will max out at 11,217. I'll let ya know how much better it is when I have it fully upgraded. Happy hunting!

    I have yet to use any shotgun on any pachyderm in region 9 and do not see the point of using one. I am having too much fun using hp rifle with ir scope to get kills with heart shots on the farthest targets that I can find on the hunt. Not only challanging but good for heart shot bonus points.

    Just got my Shotgun. In the process of upgrading it. As soon as it's upgraded I'll go and hunt some Elephants and Rhinos.

    I'm happy to hear you win after completing assault series region 8 when I saw region 8-10 and the region 8 assault series 60 hunts I thought thats regions 8 9 and 10 to complete to get the shotgun! Do you have to spend much gold to acheive it though? Read on another thread sight upgrade requires gold on assault hunt 31..

    I had previously won the gun and had it fully upgraded so I didn't have to spend any gold on it.

    As Pantera once said, "vulgar display of power!" What can't that gun take out..... As long as there ain't a lot of them and they don't run fast :)

    I'm practicing to only fire once at a time, rather than emptying both, bring dinos two at a time, mess up, get caught reloading and you're done for, lol

    I want to see how it does on those hard to kill jackles on region 9 contract hunts, so far I haven't gotten any. Other than that it is a bad a** shotgun! ;)

    I use rifles for pretty much everything, including jackels, just not birds and charging(attacking) prey, spray with shotgun for them.

    Don't like it. Used it once only, just like the turkey gun!

    I didn't start playing the game until December so I never got that gun. The gun packs a powerful punch but I'm with you, I don't care too much for it. Maybe I'll like it more after getting use to it but for now I'll use my Barricade.

    It was a single shot muzzle loading blunderbuss. And rubbish!

    Not every gun but everyone I have is listed in recent thread. For holiday event I only bought higher weapon, lower weapon only completed half, so there was no point. Started playing game during "zombie deer" Halloween hunts; headsman pistol is from that.

    The Pachyderm doesn't seem to have the knockdown you'd expect for the power it's supposed to have, even maxxed out. Region 9 jackals and gazelle are still wearing kevlar and usually take a couple of shots to nail. Elephant and Rhinos are easier, but you have less range than the Barricade. Fun on quails and geese and wolverines, but they're easy anyway.

    It's a fun addition to the gun collection. I thought it was going to be a double rifle/express rifle/elephant gun—pachyderm name and so on—but it is clearly a shotgun. As with many of the guns, it's a bit of everything...and the sights actually belong on an assault rifle rather than on a shotgun. Still, it's good fun and didn't cost anything...well done to Glu, I say.

    I'm with the rest of the newbies, wasn't around for the turkey gun and I'm absolutely ****ed that I missed out on 'zombie deer'......**** you limited time hunts!!!! I still have a faint memory of shooting reindeer from the sky...too bad I didn't have this Pachyderm shotgun with its magic 11K damage bullets to take down Rudolph. It's interesting that I/we don't seem to care about the difference between the Grantham Swordfish shotgun at a whopping 323 power and this new shotgun some how being able to produce 11217 power....maybe the same 'reason' that animals get 'tougher skin' in higher ranked regions. DH give it up...eventually we will stop believing in tougher skin and magic bullets and you will have to produce an animal that is realistically harder to kill with a weapon that is reasonably more powerful. Bring on the dinosaurs!!! PS: post rant....new shotgun limitation of two shots is awesome and adds the needed difficulty to the game.

    The assault rifle works really well on jackals and gazelle as well as most everything else...I rarely use the shotguns.
    Say What??

    Fully agree with you. Considering its power (11217) I was expecting a sort of reduced version of the Big Bertha which could take with one shot 8 zebras, all rocks and trees around and half of the railway bridge. But it needs two shots to kill the armoured gazelles. So .... a beautiful item for decorating the smoking lounge. I suspect that its real value is to be the key for another future special event though.

    It is kinda fun using the Pachyderm in Region 6. Everything is in range. Region 7 hyenas will take 2 hits just standing there...and then they'll attack...4 of them can get a little busy. Still better than moose.

    I bought the G&H for 180 gold pieces and competed the 60 hunts but did not get the Pachyderm Shotgun.
    is anyone who got the shotgun on an Android devise with version 4.4.2
  • Tyman2222Tyman2222 Junior Member Registered Users 58 Posts
    The pachyderm is a powerful shot gun but there's no scope so you can only get one shot kills when they are close to you, I wish we could upgrade the sight and capacity.
