The Survivalist's Slugger is a secondary weapon for the Soldier.
Unlike a standard weapon, it starts with an empty clip and cannot be reloaded. Instead, dealing damage with a primary weapon will loads up rounds, up to twice what the standard Shotgun can hold. It also fires faster and fires more pellets per shot at the cost of decreased accuracy.

In order to take advantage of this weapon, you have to do great amounts of damage to the enemy team first. This weapon can be more useful than the normal shotgun on dire situations, where, if you do great amounts of damage, you can have 12 shots of this weapon and take down enemies that you couldn't do in close range. Though not definitely a medium-range weapon, this weapon can sure save you a lot of times if you get his 12 shots.
