The Nova is a pump-action shotgun that packs a punch at close range. With a solid wooden stock and a distinctive angular barrel, it's a favorite for players who want to take control of confined spaces. While its rate of fire is slower compared to other shotguns, the Nova offers impressive damage and armor penetration. Be wary, though—the spread increases as you move, so it's most effective when you take the time to aim.
