The Genesis Project Official Wiki

The Shotgun is a Riflekind weapon, and as such, will either slot into your Riflekind Strife Specibus or create a new one. Attempting to equip the Shotgun when your Strife Specibus has four other specibi will result in the weapon being captchalogued.

The Shotgun does 3 damage and can attack 2 times in a second.


The Shotgun can either be created using a Cruxite dowel from the Explore Antheum tab while in Sburb, and can be found naturally in these maps:


  • The Shotgun fires multiple projectiles, so while its base damage is 3, it's capable of doing 20+ damage in a single shot if all of its pellets connect with a single target.
  • The Shotgun is not found as a weapon anywhere in Homestuck, a trait it shares with the Dart.
