United Nations Space Command

The M90 Close Assault Weapon System (abbreviated M90 CAWS), more commonly known as the M90 Shotgun, or informally as the Shotty, is the United Nations Space Command's primary shotgun and is one of the most lethal infantry weapons used by front line forces. 

 Introduction

The M90 Shotgun is the main UNSC close combat weapon, packing extreme firepower at close range. It can kill almost any enemy in one hit if every single pellet makes contact, and can usually kill up to three Covenant Grunts with only one blast at a similar distance. It is often wielded in urban conditions, where the tight spaces are conducive to the shotgun's wide spray. The shotgun also makes a perfect defensive weapon to fend off Covenant boarding parties inside warships, and is particularly effective against the Flood due to the tendency of Flood forms to close in and melee their targets.
