Firstly to balance things out, I say Shotgun would be the rarest weapon, it would have the least spawns and it sshells wouldnt be as common as rifle cartridges or revolver bullets

 

For the Gun itself Each weapon in Long Dark has a purpose:

The Hunting rifle is a long ranged offensive weapon used for Hunting

The Revolver is a deterrent to hostile wildlife 

The Bow is a for silent hunters

And the Flare gun is a Light and basic self defense tool

I say the Shotgun in its core is used to retaliate hostile wildlife,it isnt there to kill or scare that wolf,it is tehre to oblidrate that wof

(fluffy sweats nervously)

 

shotguns would be aterrible weapon for hunting, but a great one for self defence, for an example lets say you shoot a moose if close enough it blows it away killing it instantly; Problem arises when you try harvest the Moose, most of its meat, most of its intestents and its pelt, is unuseable.

 

Thats the payoff for the shotgun, Uncommon ammo and the fact that it is too powerfull to hunt anything, shoot a rabbit and there wont be a rabbit

 

but its rewards are the that it will kill anything in close distance

I had similar idea once but instead of a shotgun it was a muzzleloading rifle. Shot, powder, and caps/flint would have to be crafted along with a ramrod, and weather like blizzards and snow could cause the powder to get wet. It would be much more powerful than the rifle at the cost of destroying the meat and hide at close range.
