The Barrier Shotgun (Formerly called "Matriarch") is the Special weapon by MatthewGo707.


It is a shotgun with the pump action hold. A rotating, thin disk is on the gun's body.


It has high damage, high rate of fire, medium capacity, and good mobility.


  • Its projectiles can be used to destroy other projectiles. (e.g. rockets)
  • Unlike the Barrier Rifle, its Energy Shield can reduce 75% damage no matter what type of weapon, therefore negating the one-shot ability of the majority of overpowered weapons.
  • Because it has piercing shots, it can be used for crowd control.
  • Its being a shotgun can make this weapon a dangerous version of Barrier Rifle.


  • Pick off its users from long ranges.
  • Its shield barely halves the damage from weapons, so lethal weapons are still effective on those users.
    • However, this is no longer the case, as the 15.3.0 update allowed its energy shield to reduce the enemy damage by 75%.
