Weapon Overview Edit

The Gnasher Pump Shotgun was Tom's solution to the slow reload time of the CoG Gnasher Shotgun. The idea for the weapon came from Tao, who asked Tom to improve the weapons magazine size AND reduce the reload time. Tom took this as a challenge, since he had failed increasing magazine size and reducing reload time together with previous weapon experiments.

Weapon Creation Edit

Tom started the modifications by first creating a "Shell Pack" for the shotgun ammo. The Shell Packs are small rectangular containers that hold a max of 4 Shells. Tom then adjusted the loading point in the Gnasher to a 3 slot box on the top of the weapon, which also serves as a shoulder rest. The Shell Packs fit into the the slots in the box, which is spring-loaded for quick release of empty packs (which are re-usable, but take time to reload the individual packs). The Pump added to the weapon pulls in shells from the Shell Packs, changing which Pack it pulls from every 4 shells, and ejecting the empty Pack at the same time.

Additional Notes Edit

Unfortunately, Tom's modifications to the shotgun resulted in an increased weight, and made the weapon significantly more bulky. Thus, only Tom, Tao, and a few other members of the Marauders use this weapon.
